Why I Started This Blog

Hi everyone, and welcome to my third blog post. I hope you enjoyed my previous posts and that you will continue to read the ones that follow. If you have any feedback, in whatever form, I really appreciate it if you get in touch. This really motivates me, and helps me improve. Because, having an idea in your head and then getting it right on paper can be hard. Anyway, I thought the time to be right to explain why I started this blog in the first place.

I Like to Write

First of all, I like to write. To me it is the easiest form to express my creativity. During my years in school I had little problems filling pages, putting what I knew in to writing. Nevertheless, only occasionally I would write something for myself, a poem every now and then, or I would work out an idea, but never to a point where I kept doing it regularly.

Where, I suppose in my younger years I was not aware of what I could do with my writing skills, later on I just had too many other things going on to get my mind into a state where I could write. An urge developed in me nonetheless over the last year and a half. Where I would get inspiration and had ideas but still felt blocked to get them on paper.

In retrospect, I understand why this happened. At the time I was living a life where my work would always be at the forefront of my mind. Most of the things I thought of were related to work, my perspectives on the human body and mind, and on nutrition. Similar ideas still fly around, but now I identify less with myself as a Physical Therapist. Therefore, I feel fewer obstructions in my thoughts and I actually have more headspace to follow up on them.

Stream of Ideas

Also, I realized that the less I identify with my thoughts in general and the more I reduce the amount of things I do, even more head-space opens up. Consecutively, thoughts and feelings do not dictate my state of mind as much, but rather come in to being as a result of it.

Further, during my travels I felt a growing sense of connection with the world around me. I noticed that wherever I go people will tell many similar stories, even though they all come from different places. Regardless of where they are from, if they are rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy we all seem to be sharing this human experience of ours in the same world.

Therefore, I figured that my travels should not necessarily be limited to my own experience. Before I took off I really had the feeling that this should be my time, my experience, in solitude and disconnected from the rest of the world. Soon though, I realized that this is nonsense and impossible. I had no idea at the time that I would be able to travel exactly how I want and still share this experience. Where I used to disconnect from the things that happened around me, they now inspire me to express myself in my own way.

Everybody Does What He Can

There are great people around, both alive and in history, close to me as well as people sharing their knowledge, lifestyle and ideas through blogs, vlog’s and other mediums to let the world profit from what they know. Not everybody has the time to read 100’s of science articles every year, but there are people who do this and break it them down for us.

There are people sharing their lifestyle on YouTube allowing us to profit from their experiences and there are people sharing their recipes so that we can still eat an awesome healthy meal when you are without inspiration. In general, there are so many perspectives being put out in to the world, it is up to us to let them shape us in whatever way you want.

In conclusion, this bigger sense of connection led me to revalue certain thoughts and feelings. As a result, I feel more confident and find it easier to express myself despite what other people might think. At the same time I am being inspired by a variety of people and causes that actually motivate me to do the same.

To join in on this exchange, I chose to write here to offer my views and story, so that people can profit from what I do. I hope this will inspire them finding their own way in to living their own authentic life, from repairing cars to working in an elderly home, and from volunteering in a neighborhood to writing a blog, every single one of these things are equally valuable.
