A big BANG theory!

in LeoFinance3 months ago

I haven't blogged much early this year from Jan through to may, a few posts here and there was all I had time from amidst settling down in a different city, hunting for a house and travelling. I got a bit regular from May, and kept up the pace before slacking off.

When I haven't written for a long time and am struggling to get the motivation to restart, I sometimes look at my account analytics, just to get a kick up my arse. Because believe you me, it's one sorry looking curve! Every time.

It reminds me of what could have been. I have been on this blockchain since the very early days, late 2017 to be precise. It's been just over 5 years last month I think, and there is no excuse I shouldn't have reached 10k HP by now at the very least, and yet, I am quite a bit off the target.

But that's me being a bit harsh on myself, because that doesn't tell the whole story. And even if I haven't blogged as much as I would have loved to, I wasn't completely detached. I have traded regularly with HIVE mostly - haven't done too badly there I believe. I have been paying bills off of crypto for quite along time now. (Not many on the chain knows this, but you can take a couple of wild guesses who does :D)

I have also kept growing the amount of "spare" HIVE I own gradually. I am now (sort of!) comfortable with the amount I have as my trading volume, It probably is finally time to give my eggs-nest a break. Up until now I have created an eggs-nest and then ended up delving into it after a stupid trade to recover the losses. I never ended up paying the debt back to myself, it sounds nonsense, but it makes all the sense in the world if you really think about it.

So this is me, paying the debt I owed to myself...

...or putting my money where my mouth is, literally!

They say landmarks are important. Landmarks becomes monuments with banging impact! Well, here's for many more to come hopefully!

That's a "big power" move, doc. Just keep going and keep on posting, 15k HP next I'm guessing? I hope to reach that point one day, slow and steady.

Currently even I am off track, not posting according to my plans and goals, not even engaging as much either, but it's that way not because I don't want to, it's more like I can't at the moment. Life is handing over a ton of responsibilities and I am getting cornered; for which, in the end, I can't get much done. The efficiency and focus isn't there anymore, but even I know I'll get back on track, we all do, sooner or later.

For now I can relate with you with the house hunting part. We've been in this area for over two decades now, but we are having to move out because of some personal issues.

It's quite a hectic task you know, finding the right location, the perfect house for a family of 6. Yet, I think we're getting close to finding a snug little apartment that will fit quite well. Hoping for the best.

Good to hear from you bro, It's been a while!

15k HP next I'm guessing

In the short term, yes. My eyes are on 20k 😁

I'm a bit too familiar with how overwhelming that can feel. I wish I could tell you it gets easier...It doesn’t. But you do get used to it.

House hunting in dhaka is a pain in the rear! Good luck with the shifting!

Same bhai, you're posting after quite a while. Can't see you much on Discord either, I guess everyone is busy right now.

My eyes are on 20k 😁

I'll be happy with half of that in a year or two. 😏

It doesn’t. But you do get used to it.

That's how I see it too, it never gets easier; we just grow thicker skin and learn to handle such issues more efficiently.

I'm gonna need all the luck I can get. These days finding a proper house and a proper deal in this city is like going on an unicorn hunt.

The more desperate you are, the bigger asshole your landlord becomes 🤣

If that ain't a fact... 😵😂

I know how it feels to look back at all times you were not publishing and working on your account. You might feel you would have gotten more stakes and stuff going on if you didn't have all the offline activities taking your time.

It's okay since you are fully back and I can even see that you have paid the debt you owe yourself by making sure your stake is up to 10k like you've thought it should be.

From here you can build further, and have no regrets any more. Congratulations on how far you've come, sir.

You see, the thing about reality is that we will always have regrets no matter what 😅

It's important to push through the regrets and keep going. I think regrets are good, it becomes motivation itself if we look at it the right way.
