“Where there’s a will, there’s a way, kind of beautiful
and every night has its day, so magical.
And if there’s love in this life, there’s no obstacle,
that can’t be defeated.”
AVICII – Waiting for love
Nowadays sharing has been made easy. In a blink of an eye anyone can be a musician, vlogger, blogger, instagram celebrity, podcaster or anything else. The world is constantly filled with information and new stars will find their way to the top. One could think that it’s utterly pointless to write a blog, make music, help others and try to change the world since someone else has already done it.
And pointless it feels. Fucking pointless to be honest. For over a year now I’ve been writing a blog and during this time received circa 5-6 feedbacks of my blog. Overall during this one year there’s been approximately 1 200 people reading my blog. Lately I published a new song to soundcloud. 40 listeners, only a few feedbacks.
Summa summarum from time to time I feel like my endeavours are pointless. Whatever they don’t matter. Sometimes I feel like I’m just talking to myself in this blog. Primarily I write this for myself but I wish that someone else would get something from this: inspiration, hope, peer support, anything. If I make music I wish that it would touch others. Only just that I’m not a musical genius like AVICII nor musically talented. I just love to make music, unleash creativity and try out new things.
For some odd reason it’s easier to criticize than to encourage. Easily a negative comment slips from our mouth rather than a compliment. If you think about something good from someone you’ll easily keep it as your own information. Regardless sharing the good could give so much to the other and encourage to move on.
Though I haven’t gotten as much positive feedback as I had hoped still I continue to write, making music and helping others. A good friend of mine said wisely: “As long as you do things from your heeart they will touch others even though you would never know it.” I just have to rely on this wisdom and believe that what I do matters.
