Lately, I’ve been going to the wrong direction and thinking in a wrong way. I lost focus of what I always love to do and that is---- to BLOG. To make some clarifications I asked myself,
“What’s wrong, Erica? What makes you down? How will you be successful if you’re always like this? What are the possible ways to put you on full strength again? Where is the eagerness you used to put in yourself to reach that goal? You need to answer these questions right here, right now. Don’t waste time. Come on! You used to repeat the phrase make use of my time again and again in your mind. But what are you doing? You’re just sitting there and looking at nowhere. Isn’t this the right time to use it? ”.
Don’t get me wrong, but I really talk to myself often.
Remember my last post before this? You can read it back if you want so you can understand clearly what I am talking about.
If you just know, Blogging is a big deal for me, earlier as now I am practicing myself for bigger purposes. I am putting myself to the test, to ready myself to make my career successful in the future, and this is a perfect way to start. I always wanted to be a WRITER. I love writing; I always have abundant imaginations and can make them out of a story.
I often picture myself holding a book in front of the Medias throwing questions of how I made it, that the book I have created is now a bestselling not only in my continent, but also worldwide. That my name is very famous and is always seen in magazines and newspapers, and paparazzi are everywhere to snap photos of me for their own article, and they might also put it in their blogs too. And that I’m well- known by people just like how Ophra Winfrey is right now, and so as Bill Gates, and the others.
Doesn’t it feel good to be true? I want these things to happen, I really do.
But in every big achievement it is necessary to start at the small one, because there is a saying, “In every thousand miles we start with one step”. But how will it be as big as my imagination to make it in reality if in small areas I am not making a move? I should stop being happy-go-lucky and should set a goal.
Just like yesterday, I know there’s something nice to blog about a grandpa and my unusual feeling of what happened that the readers will find it touching, but I didn’t post it because I’m lazy and tired. I’m tired because I’ve been doing nothing the whole day. See? This is not good. When I get a job I can’t be like this. Do you get what I mean?
If you’re telling me that maybe I’m getting the wrong choice of career, you’re wrong. This is what I love, being in the industry of authors, editors, writers, columnists, etc. This is really the profession I wanted to take. I’m just being TOO LAZY.
And I find my courage again when a friend of mine, Mr. John Marine, had an article about blogging stuff which I find it absolutely true. He inspires many people across the world including me. And his words are very powerful and meaningful that you will get up from where you are seated and start doing what you really love that is good for you and for your career. I appreciate everything he does for me all the time.

And this time, I’ll make it sure that I’m heading the right direction to success with God’s guidance.
