It’s been well over a month, perhaps two since I last wrote a Dope Quote post. It’s fair to say my view point has altered in life and it’s not something I saw coming or even happening due to my stubbornness. I’ve always known where I was going; kind of cemented in my mind a straight path but going away and disconnecting from ‘the matrix‘ helped me understand the importance of vision and being open to let your path be swayed by whatever is thrown at you. Taking myself out of usual environment helped me see what life was like in places like Hawaii and Seattle, in fact the west coast in general was much more relaxed. It’s fair to say the path I saw myself taking a few months back has changed a little bit, the quiet life is what I yearn for. Do you really want to raise kids in London? More on the reverse. I’m OLD haha.

Yikes, to even think that sort of subject matter is on my mind is a tad scary. I blame being 24 – one more year till life starts getting real serious as my teen years will become a mere distant memory. The future excites me! I know I want/need to be out of this city in the next 5 years, I kept telling one of my friends this and her response was ‘well, you better put the work in now then’. Paradigm shift, that single moment of inspiration that makes everything clear. A vision is not just an idea, it’s a transformational guide that everyone understands and drives forward to reach.
A few things about vision and what it does for me -
- Vision excites me. I wake up everyday wanting to edge closer to it, boredom? I can’t remember the last time I was bored.
- Vision inspires action. Let your imagination and curiosity inspire progress.
- Vision helps you keep organised. Adds structure, goals, objectives and even morals to an extent.
Above all, positivity is key. Focus on all things positive – true, honourable, just, pure, lovely, admirable, praise-worthy.
It takes vision and courage to create – it takes faith and courage to prove. It’s time to start building for the future, think long-term people. It’s not about living for the weekend.
