I have always been a born questioner. For as long as I can remember, if someone told me to believe in a certain concept or idea I would always ask myself if I truly believed what they were telling me. Eventually I learned that if someone else's belief in something did not immediately grab my attention or make me ponder then I would just discard it as useless. Then for a long time afterward I stopped questioning things and just learned to work around obstacles. If I met someone who was arrogant and/or stubborn then I would just assume that that is how they always were in their daily life. For the most part I was right nearly 80% of the time. I soon came to realize that no matter how much I may want to make someone understand my perspective it still boils down to whether or not that individual is ready to see the world through a different pair of eyes.
This is my very first full fledged blog. I don't know exactly what I'll end up writing about but I am sure I will think of plenty. Even though I am considerably young, 26, I have read tons of very intriguing theories about a multitude of topics. Everything from history, sociology, religion, philosophy, psychology and a bit of quantum mechanics. Our Universe fascinates me immensely! How can we not question and analyze our own existence?! Yes, sometimes it can be a bit of a bummer to question our own mortality but if you do it often enough it pretty much becomes second nature. I have done it numerous times. There were a few when I thought I was losing my mind but it actually made me appreciate EVERYTHING so much more. NO ONE really knows how we came into existence, at least not yet. Until then, we need to just live in each moment and treasure all we have and will soon have. There is no better time to begin than RIGHT NOW.
