Okay, it’s been a while since the last post. But. But everything has it’s time and sometimes you can’t push too hard. Lately I was quite busy with some other, arguably, more important things in my life, thus the blog was postponed. It is just a matter of priorities and I prioritized. And now I just feel like posting about my progress again.
It’s time to share some Progress of mine. Since it all began with my first real Breakthrough some time has passed. It’s not been all roses but shit as well and I also had though times while arriving where I am at the moment. But I did enjoy it, because everything is a part of the journey. Life is a journey.
Just a moment ago I realized one thing that might be obvious to some of you. It already was in my subconscious mind because it is somehow natural but I have not stated it clearly when I defined what Progress means to me.
The fact is that Progress is a purely personal thing.
Of course, it can have impact on people around you. This may happen when you work on improving your relationships that people involved will notice if you decide to stop wasting your time with them. Also when you choose to change your behavior because you realized that you need to shift yourself in some way. But ultimately it is a thing that is yours only. You are the person who invests energy in order to move forward and you are the person who will harvest the outcome. And that is good news because no one is ever able to take from you the Progress you already made.
Also it is imporant to recognize the fact that making Progress is sometimes selfish. Occasionally you will need to make decisions and simply prioritize yourself, but you are the person that is the most important to you.
Make Progress people!
Recently, me and a bunch of my old friends had a nice hiking journey. In fact, we have it as a tradition. Back in the days when we were high school kids we started this habit. We had plenty of time during summer vacations so we thought it’s a wonderful idea to explore the beauty of Slovak nature. Slovakia may not be an industrial giant or too powerful country, but the nature that is on its territory is spectacular. Anyway, this year was an anniversary – 10th expedition since we started trippin’ every summer. As a destination we chose Slovak Paradise¹, a National Park we visited on our first hike.
Lately I was a bit busy. Although, busy is not the best word to describe the state in which my mind happened to be, let’s just put it that way. The result is that no post was published for quite a long time. Whatever, I am doing this for myself mainly and if i don’t feel like writing I will not. Period.
I was stuck in a situation that I was subconsciously creating and was not able to understand how to step out of the circle. Nonetheless, it is already gone. Perhaps, I will write a post about it later, with some time passed so I can have a different view.
Negative things aside. I want to share with you the unbelievable positive energy that I received from a buddy of mine. Fortunately for me he stayed around for almost a week and every single day was special. I can’t precisely tell why, but I surely can feel it.
There is a time in a person’s life called adolescence. It is when you think you are already old enough to know better, but in fact you only think that. You know nothing. There is no firm age range when this should be happening. Although it is meant to be while in teenage years, for some it may happen in their twenties, or later, or never. Some may experience it multiple times. It is often a period when you make your huge personal Breakthrough, you change your life in some way. And change is the Progress.
Perhaps the only important definition I need to spell out is what does the Progress mean to me. Naturally, everyone has own understanding and due to that I want to share mine so you can understand how I measure Progress.
