“Good things happen when you meet strangers.” Yo-Yo Ma
Good Afternoon world!
Normally I don’t post twice a day but since I’m out of class early, and putting off studying for finals until tomorrow I decided to post once more.
Today I was checking my emails, and it gave me a notification that someone from WordPress liked my post, and even commented on it. Now those of you who are basically blog superstars, and have people follow you almost instantaneously you probably think I’m a little nutty for getting this excited but I can’t help It! I’m acting like a Twi-Hard fan on crack who finds out they’re making another movie happy!
I created this blog with the intention of just writing, and getting my online portfolio going so employers In my field of study could take a glance at it. But then I really started to enjoy the writing and topics I was coming up with, and it was making me happy. After a while of writing you do want someone to respond, or at least agree, or like with what you’re saying. Anyways after this person liked my post I then started smiling, and thinking how amazing it is that the work you think is bad or mediocre someone else finds enjoyable.
It also had me thinking how we as humans spend our entire lives trying to make sure that everything we do is precise, and perfect to the point of being anal. We want others to see our work or performance so impeccable to the point of when someone reads, or reviews whatever we’ve accomplished they know we are an intelligent human being.
I say we stop over-thinking. I say we just do whatever is asked, or assigned and not care what people think. Because If your only goal Is to complete things so you can make someone else happy, then you’ll never be happy. But If you enter a task knowing that no matter what you’re giving the best, then you’ll be happy. And I think above all that is what counts. So I dedicate this post today to djmatticus.
