So yesterday I started using Periscope (watching vids, haven’t made one yet), and there were primarily 2 accounts that were live streaming consistently while I was up working throughout the day, those being Daniel DiPiazza & Under30Experiences. It felt as though the entire time I’m sitting at my computer, prepping blog posts, drating e-mails, & working on my campaign, they’re simultaneously telling me “Join us Brandon, we want you to experience life with us”!
In those moments, I was both pushed, and ripped apart.
Watching a group of people in my age group going off to Ireland and experiencing new things made me work faster and harder to get everything off of my brain. I’m putting work in to make something of myself and help the people around me, including all of you. The purpose behind everything I do has always been to gain and provide opportunities to learn, connect, entertain, grow, and motivate.
As much as I was pushed to move forward, I was also feeling myself being ripped apart. It was mostly the mental strain I was putting on myself knowing that I am actually within arms reach of making something happen. In an effort to make sure I stopped spending money, I’ve cancelled all of my excess monthly subscription, and the only time I leave the house is to drop off a package, cut grass, or watch Southpaw for free (Review here), otherwise I’m working on either building this site or raising enough money to take advantage of the opportunity presented to me. This will be my 4th post in the past 24 hours, averaging about 4-5 posts a week. Some are planned, some happen spontaneously, but I am always trying to share, motivate, learn, and connect with anyone who chooses to be involved. I am nowhere near where I want to be, but I take what I have and make the best of it.
As I’m writing this, I feel as though this post is becoming more therapeutic. I guess I needed to write this to understand where I am in my life right now, and I feel better. I remain optimistic that everything will work out, I’m not going to stress myself out about getting ahead, but I am going to keep pushing myself to move forward. It’s 10 after 1AM and I think It’s in my best interest to rest for a few hours until I have to get up and drop a package off.
