What is consistency? The undying will and power to do the same thing again and again without fail. We are not born Gods, yet are meted with things that are only possible for them.
Mind feels like a nightingale flying high into the soaring skies and looking down on a multitude of interesting things. Thoughts come and go at the speed of light. You chase one and others go into nothingness. It is hard to be consistent and yet, we are demanded by circumstances to be so.
Consistency is a slow poison. It will kill you one day.
Be consistent in your job. Be consistent in your duties as a student. Be consistent, be consistent, be consistent. Our minds are not created to be bounded by the shackles of mediocrity and the mundane. We like to imagine, we like to daydream, we like to feel our heart flutter.
Life is exciting when you feel the happiness flowing through your veins and deep in your bones. They say do what you love. But, anything that repeats bores us and gets abhorred by us, in due time though.
What we mostly do is distract ourselves from the ever-so-repetitive life. People pursue hobbies, read books, draw, Tinder the heck out of town, hang out with friends and many other things to just not focus that the cycle of life will repeat itself.
We hate our humdrum existences trying to distract ourselves from it every moment, yet find comfort in it ever-so-often. Food, clothing and shelter, the basic necessities (Internet is not a basic necessity, its more of an illusion to be bound by) are fulfilled by that repetitiveness of life.
That’s the reason we accommodate the boorish nature of consistency in our lives.
Being consistent is simple.
Just do it.
As Nike would say it.
Your true power is not in your difference, but in your consistency of being different. The world will always adjust to consistency, yet struggle with change.
Here’s to you being consistently different and hoping you don’t get bored.
