A Marathon Not a Sprint

Ayaya....happy new year to you, to you and to you! 2021 will be a great year for us. Taking a trip back to the beginning of 2020, if my memory serves me well, my plan was likened to a traveller that had no particular destination but was on a constant plan to find the self, improve, discover, embark on something worthy of adventure, was fun and fulfilling.

If I were to visualize it, I looked like a hiker going for a hike with a huge bag pack behind me, it was a different year, normally I wouldn't embark on such journeys alone, but the truth was/is that "if the people you surround yourself with do not share your dream, you'd only end up chasing the wind and wasting your time."

It took me a while to realize this, but perhaps I only spent so much time not realizing it so that I could be better prepared to realize it when the right time came. So yeah after apparently chasing the wind for so long, 2020 geared me towards taking up the journey alone...

Much of the discoveries I made and the adventures I found were etched to the Blockchain, might seem weird how a piece of technology could matter so much to ones life, but would you believe me if I told you that this piece of tech has some actual life to it?

.....perhaps it is due to the projects built within it by people who put away their differences and poured their hearts and souls into building dreams into realities through the tools presented...or perhaps it is due to the relationships built and connections made through sharing common interests, feelings and/or ideas, or maybe its just the hunger for the discovery of something different...

Certainly, everyone involved might have different opinions, but the feeling/effect is the same...

Hive Blockchain was simply the highlight of my entire 2020, from the establishment of tribes and communities to the breakout from Steem. You know how when someone on a journey takes a bus only to find out that everyone on that bus shares the same ideals and are looking for similar things, you don't want to ride to end.

Online communities have never meant so much to me or made such impact on.me as did in 2020. 2021 is here and I'm still on this Hike, there's still so much I have to know, discover, implement.....perfect,....

....however, unlike the beginning of 2020 when I was blank as to what I was doing or where I was going, this year, I have developed a hunger for something, so everything I do is more focused and with more focus comes more momentum, and I believe I will be able to cover more grounds with more momentum.

The hike is far from being over. To everyone who've impacted me on my journey, a massive thank you to you from the depth of my heart, non of this would have made sense without you all,....our quarrels, bants, cheerful comments, supports, encouragement are appreciated, thank you!

Cheers to a wonderful 2021...

I feel my path is much the same as yours. Early in the the year right before the break from Steem I was losing a lot of motivation to keep blogging. After converting all my Steem to Hive, I started to feel like I had a little more influence on the chain. Add to that the extra coin allowed me to start exploring all the great projects, communities and games that were starting to appear. As I learn more about crypto and the blockchain each day I see all sorts of future possibilities opening up. It is a main focus of my day and I wouldn't have it any other way. Happy New Year!:)

Thank you for your comment. This sphere breathes, I can't fully explain it, when it reveals itself to you, you find out that you want more, more understanding, power, influence, know-how, it keeps going, till you've become a part of it and it you. This sphere makes me feel like this a lot.

Cheers to a great year

Happy new year oaldamster...I was just telling someone how we sort of planned the virtual hive fest that took place without knowing it, I guess you remember the idea behind steemtopia..steems virtual world, it was nice to see something like that actualize and implemented. Hope you've been great

Thanks! Going with the flow currently. Hope you are doing well!

It was almost if we were able to forsee a possible future with that virtual realm idea. And then 2020 happened. Where it become almost too real.

This might become a thing though. Virtual presence in a digital realm. Next add more senses, like smell and touch.

Then wearing a suit that helps experience it, and we are on the next level. Being presence in a completely made up virtuality.

That next level Hive-Fest will be mind blowing!

Yeahhhh you get, funny enough I read a post recently about a Japanese scientist who is working on the ability to transform electromagnetic signals into taste,so someone can actually lick their screen and taste a particular food. Lol its crazy...

Ah the life of a traveller, forever wandering through the world searching for something that actually lies deep within. There is something about this place isn't there! It seems to stir something and drive us forward.

Hope that continues for you in 2021 man, we'll hike it together 😀
