“Dance like no one’s watching.” “Live like there’s no tomorrow.” “Live, love, and laugh.” These quotes are fairly familiar as I see them frequently on Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Though they are used a lot, the meaning and value of these phrases should not be lost. It’s easier said than done to smile when you’re sad, to keep moving when you’re tired, and to think positively when you’re feeling down. However, I’m a firm believer in the fact that we have to do these things in order to continue progressing. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in resting and taking some days off to just relax and recuperate, but eventually we have to get back to the hustle. The world is always moving and it never stops for anything, with 7.2 billion people on this planet (and more coming every day) it is important to take the time you need, but to eventually get back into action. This, as I already said, is easier said than done. I have found myself feeling blah many times in my life. I didn’t want to do anything but sleep or be lazy with my dog, Gizmo.
When in these funks of mine I usually snap out of it with the help of my friends, family, and inspirational videos or quotes like the ones above. A common teaching in film school is to not be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I know how to write a script, film a video, and edit it but someone else might be a better writer or editor, and it is okay to ask for help because in the end the movie will better. So aside from film, in those moments of blah I look for my team of helpers to bring me up, and they usually do. A team is important in life because they support you and keep you up when the struggles of life try to knock you down. Even Batman eventually joined the Justice League. To all those that have helped me through ups and downs, thank you, this blog is for you. For the individuals that are looking for a team of their own, keep going, you’ll find one eventually and remember to ask for help when you need it. Together everyone accomplishes more!
Thank you for reading my blog and as always stay awesome!
