TFG1MIKE 365 – 2019 Day 82
Quote of the Day #3
BrainyQuote is where I find all of these.
Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. In my 82nd entry, I’ll be giving you my thoughts on the above quote.
No one should doubt or question the Dalai Lama, but I have to say that I haven’t had a calm mind at any point in my life. I’ve learned over the years that the easiest way to shut my brain up is to sleep, but I can’t rip can winkle my life away. I’ve always been more self deprecating than self confident. Yet at the same time I have a general positive outlook on life. He says that a calm mind and self confidence are important for good health, I have some self confidence, but not enough. I strive for goals at times that I can not reach, and yet I still try. Even though Yoda says, “Do or Do Not, There is no Try!” Whether you succeed or fail at anything you attempt, making the attempt is just as important right? Take this year long blog project, right now I’m farther behind than I have been before, yet I’m still here.
I’m still writing this for myself, and hopefully some people are reading this. I’m not writing to write, I’m not trying to hone the craft of my writing, I’m writing this for my own therapy. Yet as a creator, I want to make sure at least someone reads these blogs. I do not expect to have an audience of more than any number of people, but I hope that when I promote these entries, that some people are paying attention. My mind is a jumbled mess of ass backwards ideas, thoughts, and dreams. While it is something to strive for, I very much doubt I’ll ever have a calm mind.
