Quote… Food for Thought…

Syndrome: Oh, I’m real. Real enough to defeat you! And I did it without your precious gifts, your oh-so-special powers. I’ll give them heroics. I’ll give them the most spectacular heroics the world has ever seen! And when I’m old and I’ve had my fun, I’ll sell my inventions so that *everyone* can have powers. *Everyone* can be super! And when everyone’s super…  – no one will be. 

I was chatting to a friend yesterday about the fact that the talents and the abilities which we all have and believe to be our own are in fact a figment of our reality. This is due to the fact that nothing in life is really ours. Nothing in this life matters unless it is acknowledged by other people around us. The possessions, skills and talents that we have are only important when other people say that they are. 

If you are shy and wait for people to tell you that you are good at something, that reassurance either will never come or it will come far too late after you have had a spiralling decrease in your self confidence and the belief that you can’t do something. Or you can be at the other end of the spectrum where your ego and the belief that you can do anything completely dominates who you are making you over confident and believing that you are indestructible. There are times when it is better to be shy and then other times when it is better to show confidence. However these skills which we either believe to have or are told that we have are becoming less and less important, this is due to the accessibility we have to everything. 

For example the increase in personal technology we now have the opportunity to take photographs at any moment in time, it is encouraging us all to become photographers. Each person can use their phones and then edit the instigram application which allows them to feel that they have a creative talent, now that creative talent which people believe they are ‘gifted with’ is something which is becoming less important. this is because when everyone can do something and they know that they are good at it the need for photographers declines. the job title of photographers is slowly going to disappear as the superior talents which they only really made use of are now displayed to everyone. This encourages everyone to use them, therefore making everyone a photographer. That way no one will be classed as a photographer.

a year.

A year is an awfully long time. So much can change and so much will have passed. Taking the time out to see how far forward we have all come is something we as people rarely do. 

When I look at myself on this day last year, I was a nervous, self conscious, shy school girl who couldn’t say boo to a goose. Now I still feel self conscious and shy, but I have produced a face which allows me to hide that side of me. Everyone feels shy to a point, the only thing that differs is our ability to mask it with other aspects of our personality. I think about how I couldn’t commit to doing anything, everything was far too scary and foreign. I did not have the confidence to have a go at things anyway. Now things still baffle me and I worry that I won’t be able to succeed but I know each time that this happens I am learning from it and therefore it allows me to move forward. 
Some quotes which I have collected for a potential tattoo really enlightened me this morning and gave me a reason to smile. Some are in latin and I love the idea that with the translation, the meaning is locked to the beholder. You are the key to others understanding. You are priceless as you pass on the inspiration to others around you. 
When I have one of these quotes on my arm it will remind me how far I have come but also how things which I desire will require a fight or perseverance in order to get to the finish. 
You are the creator of your own destiny.
Semper ad meliora – always towards better things 
Luctor et emergo – I struggle and emerge
Dum vita est, spes est – while there is life there is hope 
I also have this desire to jump to this time next year, to be able to see the changes and decisions that I have made by then, how I feel I have succeeded or where I have been able to learn new things. I am always changing and learning, when that stops life is not worth living for education and the sharing of knowledge is the spice of life!
