Everyday NhanSense – Day 34

——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 34’s Topic: Determination.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Time to get the game face on!

With stability in place of a job to pay the bills and the means of actually taking care of myself like an adult, AKA I don’t have to starve anymore like some grueling nights I had to endure, I can finally start to plan for the immediate future in terms of projects and ambitions.

The past two months tested my limits, forced me to rethink my life from the ground up and above all else made me grow up and fast. Those random things you take for granted like shelter and food don’t seem like much until you’re backed up to a wall with limited options.

Nonetheless, that particular part of the storm has passed. It’s time to move forward with my various plans.

The first order of business is just to establish some sense of consistency throughout the week. A little structure goes a long way, after all. I have made it a habit to do things like write a blog post every evening at a certain time to acclimate myself, mainly so I don’t become lazy as a writer. Hey now, it’s worked so far, right?

On top of that, I now sleep and wake up at roughly the same times, so that stupid insomnia issue is basically taken care of for now. But now, I have to base my life around my work schedule, using my free time to chip away at my projects and planning.

Some writing here. Some research here. A little bit of this. A little bit more of that.

This ensures I can get stuff done to feel accomplished without overwhelming myself. As a reminder, that sense of “willpower” is a finite resource within the human body. You can’t just go autopilot and not expend willpower. It’s always going to be used, but sometimes you can scrape by with stretching it around, otherwise you will burn out.

It’s always a good time to feel determined! Here is some inspirational music to complement that determined attitude!

♫♫♫ Lyrics ♫♫♫
All that we love and hold so dear

Could disappear one day without warning
We fear if we get too close to it
We’ll lose it all in a heartbeat

Can you reminisce? Can you recall? 
The last time you felt some joy at all?
Or maybe you are so blessed to a point
Where you can’t remember anything

The fact we’re alive right here and now
We take it for granted but that’s how
We’ll find hope when we may need it most
When we realize the miracle

All that we love and hold so dear
Could disappear one day without warning
We fear if we get too close to it
We’ll lose it all in a heartbeat
You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I’ll never take it for granted
Let’s go

Some people may call the kindest deed
An act of mere hypocrisy
But never mind those who have lost their faith
You shouldn’t give in to what they say
As a matter of fact, just hear me out
Even if it was for a selfish cause
A salvageable hypocrisy
Is superior to murderous honesty

Everyone tells you from time to time
To never give up like a scene from a movie
They tell you to stand up for yourself
As if was always that easy
There is a handful of courage in my heart
That is waiting to shine on my darkest day
And I’ll never take it for granted
Let’s go

All that we love and hold so dear
Could disappear one day without warning
We fear if we get too close to it
We’ll lose it all in a heartbeat
You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I’ll never take it for granted

Everyone tells you from time to time
To never give up like a scene from a movie
They tell you to stand up for yourself
As if it was always that easy
There is a handful of courage in my heart
That is waiting to shine on my darkest day
And I’ll never take it for granted
