After a long hiatus, I have finally resurfaced on our beloved planet Earth. I know no one’s really interested in knowing where I have been all this while, but I’ll tell you anyway, I was suffering from a rather MAJOR writers block. When I say major, I mean major. It’s not that I didn’t have ideas, I did, but nothing concrete, you know what I mean? Most I could get out of those ideas in words was barely two sentences. This highly discouraged me from continuing, and I would end up erasing those sentences too, which left me with nothing, but a blank word page. I got so tired of this happening all the time that I actually stopped trying to write anything. The whole essence of having a blog just vanished in thin air because of this. However, I realised one thing- if I had willed that I have to write something, I would have. It does not matter how many sentences or pages I could fill, but the fact that I am, at least, writing something. So, this blog post is entirely dedicated to our mate – will, i.e. intending something, because this guy right here can move us to do anything – quite literally.
If you think that I won’t be making a reference to philosophy here, then I have to tell you, you are most certainly incorrect. (Shame on me, being a student of philosophy if I can’t see the day to day things with a philosophical angle). Talking about will, one philosopher that immediately comes to my mind, who has written extensively on will is Immanuel Kant, one of the biggest names in the world of philosophy. Although, he hasn’t exactly written about will in general, but he does write about what he calls as a “good will”. By which, he means a will which is absolutely good in nature and unconditional. However, that is a different thing, and I wouldn’t bore you more with it. What I am trying to write about here is how will plays a huge a** role in making us do things in life. It can be seen as the driving force.
We all have different aims and goals in life, but not all of us are lucky enough to have achieved them. Sometimes we do work towards them, but still fail in achieving the targets set by us. It makes us wonder, as to what was lacking in us, due to which we didn’t get what we aimed for, and only after deep contemplation does one realise that we lacked a definite will. If one possess in them, a will to do something, then there is nothing which can stop them for getting what they wants. Nothing is impossible, if you have Mr Will by your side, motivating you, and guiding you towards your goal. I realised that I lacked will to write, and this realisation is the first step towards correcting your flaws and overcoming them. So, just have a will, and trust me, all you want will be yours.
Signing off for now,
