We are different. You and I. We live in different parts of the world. Probably. We think differently, we act differently, We have lost different things, and, most certainly, we want different things. We feel lonely at different hours of the night. We see the world differently, we have certain perspectives, ideals, and principles. We believe in different things. But the biggest difference is that my struggles are mine alone. So are yours.

We come to the conclusion that fear can be defeated. Never destroyed, but defeated, time and time again. A never ending battle. I have come to the conclusion that I am in charge of my own destiny, that I can forge my own legacy.

Simply put, I write. And my words find their way to people from all over this world. Maybe it all means something to some of them, maybe it doesn’t. But that’s not why I write.

I write because it makes me happy. Big, big word that one. But it makes me happy. Writing has been the only true constant in my life. As long as I choose to write, no one can take it from me. There is nothing the outside world can threaten me with, there is nothing you or anyone else can give me or take from me that will change my desire to scribble words.

For I, and I alone, can write my own stories. No one is going to write them for me. No one is going to go down this path for me. And, truth be told, no one told me to choose this path either.

It’s all me. It’s my decision, as it’s my struggle.

But what happen sometimes. Fear and Confusion happens sometimes!!!

Some mornings find me afraid of what’s going to happen. The lazy hours of the night would never find me sleeping either; they find me at my space,a complete nervous wreck, trying to figure out how to pay bills, how to buy fittings here and there, and all the other stuff people think about from time to time.(no thoughts for 5-9, I hate the idea)

I find myself in a dark place, and I see no way out of it.

Truth be told, it’s frustrating. Because it feels like the whole universe is conspiring against me. But, like I previously stated, I chose to walk down this path.

We are different. You and I. We might never met, and odds are that we might never actually meet. But you have read some of my words. Maybe they have meant something to you. Maybe they did not or might never. But if they did mean something to you, and you are capable of doing so, please consider leaving a small donation when you “SEE” a chance to. It makes the world go round, It makes the world a better place for you and I.

    1. For Example: The experiences of the people of the third world countries and that of the developed countries are not the same…I have the urge to speak of the experiences of this two set of people that do not see life the same way…
      “Her wrong tune” not all humans see life as gracious and a platform of happiness.. a tune could sound so sweet to me but you could find it very annoying…
      Hope I did justice??

  4. Charles, thank you for stopping by to read and follow Hope For Today. I look forward to reading your blog. God bless you as you teach others how to respect and care for this beautiful world we have been given!


  5. I can relate to a lot of what you said in one of your posts. It was about how you didn’t want to take a negative thing that happened in your life, and blog about and create this world where people feel bad for you. You wanted to make a positive out of a negative and create a way to have something good come out of a bad situation. I loved that. I try to do the same thing. I wanted to comment on that post, but I pushed a button on my phone and now I can’t find it! You just have a great story. Wish you the best.

      1. It’s always inspiring to see someone committed to a dream. This 13-day cycle of the Mayan calendar is about learning how to believe in our dreams and you were a perfect demonstration of it. 🙂

  6. I think yes, you can reach out to the community. But you need to tell them what exactly the should donate for. Is it about a project you want to start in order to break through or whatever. And you need to keep them updated about the progress. But why not trying it, Charles?


      1. Oh, I don’t demand it or want to talk you into something. It is your project and you asked me for my opinion. That is just what I think would support your needs better! Blessings to you, Charles!

  7. When money is involved, you have got to trust the best people around… I am in Nigeria and we have our fraud issues…
    I trust you Erika and you would be the reason I would trust others as we build a strong online community that is focused in bringing sound and educating articles and visuals to my people here in Nigeria..
    I need your assistance hunny 😉
    you have being here from the start and you know what we stand for..
    I need a secured paypal account ran by you 😉


  8. I write because I’m breathing. No-one ever said it would be easy. It isn’t. Sometimes it’s incredible fun. Sometimes it’s terrifying. That’s life and that’s writing, too. We’re not so far apart, just in miles.
