What To Do To Be The Change
Thoughts on making a difference.
The longer I am staying a bum, the more wisdom, I feel, seeps through me. I'm starting to think if working in an office is really how I want the next 20-30 years of my life to be. Well, part of me thinks that is okay, especially if I am able to keep a progressive career track while working in a prestigious company. Surely, my salary would end up being decent, and would allow me to afford some investments. But then, would I be satisfied with that? Would I end up feeling like my dreams have been fulfilled?
After all, there are a lot of other options out there that anyone can pursue to make a living. I'm thinking, if only charity pays, that would be something I would want to do every day. The thought of waking up every morning to help the less fortunate feel lighter in life would definitely be fulfilling. Alright, so I guess that's one side of the future that is bothering me. How will I be of help to others if I end up doing this or that? It is true, though - the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. And I guess the middle class would just remain where they are or switch sub-levels. Haha. If only I can do some mind control, then I would influence the ones on top to spread their wealth so a balance would be achieved. It just sucks to see places like the slums, or people sleeping in the streets while on the other side there are all those elites worrying about how good they would look, how big their next house is going to be etc. Is there something in being wealthy that blinds them from sharing their blessings. Well, there are those who are able to share, but then, how much is that of their stock? About 1-2%? That is just something to ponder on. Perhaps, while pursuing an office career at first, I could spend time delving more on facts on this imbalance, and later on seek to be a spokesperson, while doing some charities? I think that would be cool.
Also, I have a bit of an inclination to music. I love playing the piano, but then I'm about 4-6 years delayed in having started, so my skills are kind of behind considering my age. Anyway, I'm still being pursuant. And besides, there's nothing like being able to relax yourself with your own playing. Music can be very strong and moving. Instrumental ones can flourish you with emotion, but then it is those with lyrics than can really send a message. Listen to "Ain't No Reason" by Brett Dennen. That's one of my favorites. The lyrics speaks of making sense in this world that has completely changed in equality and values. Maybe if I could sing a lot better, I can send a message through that, I don't know. We'll see. There are people anyway who get discovered late in their 20s already, right? Haha. I'm just so full of hope.
I also want to spend a future where I can venture in different places a lot, as well. I have gone to quite a number of places locally already. Only once have I gone to another country. Part of me wants to explore some more what is to be seen in other cultures, climates, and whatnot in the future. I think that is also a good way to maximize life - seeing the beauty of the rest of the world. I think that would give a better understanding on life.
Or for the meantime, I could just stick to blogging. Is that a good idea? Haha. Hopefully, there would be more people here who would want to delve in to this topic a lot more. We just need to have the will to create a strong idea that we can eventually translate outside of us. This world needs some good changing in a lot of different areas. Oh, don't get me started on the environment. :)
