I think a lot. I analyze even more. What can I say, I’m a psychology major. It’s just what I do.
Recently I decided it’s time I put my thoughts on paper. Or on Word. At first I wasn’t going. I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t really into this whole blogging thing. I’ve had a few blogs here or there but not ones that lasted long enough for people to “follow” them, whatever that means.
Anyhow, I was thinking to myself the other day, what if I could really impact someone else through putting my thoughts into words? It’s like that one song from Prince Caspian that my sisters are ALWAYS singing by Regina Spektor. “The Call.” Except we’re not running in circles and worrying about saying goodbye.
Basically I’m putting my thoughts out here for the world to see because I want to make an impact in someone’s life. And because I don’t want to be 35 years old one day and hit a midlife crisis.
I was once told by a mentor, “Be the lamppost that gives light to people in the dark.” That’s my motto. So long as the flame is burning, I’m gonna try to bring light to others.
After deciding all this, I was chatting with Constructive Attitude last night about how I’m jumping on board with Symphonic Discord. After “initiation,” what was the most important requirement of me? Finding a shnazzy name. I told Constructive Attitude that I would leave the name up to her, seeing as I’m not that creative, and I would yay or nay it. Then instead of discussing plausible names I started complaining about the pain I’m having in my upper right wisdom tooth.
And boo ya! A light bulb went off in my head. I’m relatively young and I’m writing the wisdoms that I’ve come to gain thus far in my short life.
And there you have it.
Introducing… Youthful Wisdom.
