What Lies Amongst The Stars

Deeply rooted am I to this Earth, like the greatest Oak in all the lands. But my spirit yearns for the stars and the secrets they hide behind their night skies. So each night when I lie down in my bed, I let that mysterious sleep wash over me, and my spirit goes to that…

Two Forms Of Inspiration For Content Creators

You might be a fellow writer. Or you might be interested in making t.v. shows, movies, Youtube videos, painting, singing, making music beats, doing stand-up comedy, or you might create some form of content that I can’t even think of. But what inspires you to create entertainment for others? Because ultimately- isn’t there a form…

Freelance Begone (Poem)

He struggled to find, as hard as he looked, a freelance writing gig that he could book. He applied to several, begged for even more, but no one would give him the simplest chore. He guest wrote posts, all to no avail. No one wanted to pay him to tell their tale. Months and months,…

Your Life Means Your Path

Going through life doing what other people tell you will get old quick. As a child it’s just how the world works- you learn from your parents and teachers. But when you reach a certain age, perhaps around 18 or 19, you begin to use what you’ve leaned about the world to formulate your own…

Giving Your Ideas A Chance To Grow

Starting something new and possibly time consuming can be hard to do. It’s easy to dream and think about how great things would be if you could do this or that. But when it comes to actually doing “this or that” we usually don’t even give ourselves a chance. What keeps us from trying out…

Your Definition of Success is Defined by YOU

When it comes to the topic of goals people often get insecure.  Take, for example, one guy’s goal may be to graduate high school to proceed into the workforce.  Another, however, may want to get his PhD and then continue into groundbreaking scientific research.  Should the wannabe high school graduate think any less of his…

Your Lack of Success is Inspiring

Inspiration is something we all seek out at times.  Today I offer you a slightly off-the-wall idea for where to find your next form of it.  People can be inspired by artwork, music, celebrities, and countless other things.  But one place that I’ve been finding myself getting inspired by recently has surprised me- the lack…

Escaping Normality

When you think of normal, what comes to mind?  A guy who drinks his morning cup of coffee on the way to his 9-5?  The real question is, why do we all strive to attain mediocrity? Now, some of you could say I’m a hypocrite when it comes to the subject.  I’m going to a…

The Hope of Disappointment

We go through a lot of emotions- I mean a LOT.  But there is one in particular I’ve found people try to avoid at all costs.  Disappointment.  Think about it, when we cause people to feel other things like anger, we almost get a rush off it in the moment.  And although we may regret…

To a Night Unknown

Night, a time rivaled only by the day prior and the day that follows. The classic way of thinking is “There’s always tomorrow.” “Let’s get a fresh Start tomorrow morning.” “Let’s call it a night.” Why? Why do we always look to the next day for opportunity? I wish to reveal to you the under…
