Greetings, young masters. Every week there’s a new reason to be excited with a new playlist of the hottest, newest, and underrated tracks that have surfaced during the week for your pleasure.

Ray to Riches: Volume 18

Date: March 6, 2016
Title: Feeling inspired

I’ve been living with a certain vibe lately. I want to do more. I want to create. I want to have fun. I want to change the world. I’m truly blessed to be constantly surround by individuals that excel in all sorts of different fields. I feel like I’m starting to understand, by learning more about myself and learning about others, is that there is no limit to what you want to do. The first step to creation is initiation. There’s been far too many times in my life where I’ve wanted to do something, but never committed to it.

I can attribute these past failures in my life to two different reasons: lack of resources and horrible management. However, I can not allow these two things to continue to hinder my motivation. Many times when you feel like you don’t have grasp on something, you just want to let go. For example, as a younger self I remember wanting to edit videos but I didn’t have the right components. No camera, no software, no video. I quickly let that idea fall through the cracks.

But now, I have realized hat there are ways around it. I mean confidence was always an issue too. You didn’t want do create something that was shit. You want others to enjoy your product. But there’s no way to be perfect at anything unless you work at the craft and hone your skills through practice. I’ve recently taken on some new hobbies and I’ve been approaching life a little bit differently.

The work life is not an easy life. Everyone always seems to be working for the weekend. It’s such a toxic thought that infects the entire office. I’ve been working corporate for half a year now, and so I’ve seen most of it. It’s Monday and people say “Ugh, it’s Monday”. It’s Tuesday and they say “Ugh, well Monday’s over”. Repeat this a couple of times until you get to Friday. “The weekend is finally here.”

I don’t think anyone should be working for the weekend. I say work for the day. Live in the moment and seize the opportunities before others take those away from you.
