I’ve begun my personal blog once again, though I question my own logic and sanity in such an undertaking. yet as creatives we are nearly obligated in such fruitful endeavors because they do a superb job of yielding a bountiful harvest within our artistic souls.
I’m not trying to impress anybody, we already have a new rat race with social media and all of its many contestants seeking to win a reality show they themselves spawned. My sense of purpose, self worth, and confidence isn’t derived from toxic competition with others. You cannot even truly, authentically compare yourself with others, the variables are entirely too skewed. For instance, here are mine:
asian + caucasian
6’0 ft tall
good overall combination of tech wizardy + creatve artistry
well adjusted emotionally,mentally, intellectually
rather clean + hard working
yet these maths cannot be compared with others in a accurate, objective context because the things which brought this about is almost randomly generated. My age bracket, my origin story, my secret talents you know nothing about, and other proclivities. How my childhood was, who my parents were, my overall beautiful disposition in life, attitude toward work and play, etc.
I’m not saying I’m better than anybody at all, just that I’m best at being who I am and that’s as good as I’ll ever truly get. I illustrate this with the following quote:
You’ll never be better than anybody just as you’ll never be less than anybody. -Peaceful Warrior
