Stepping Through the Looking-Glass

[tweetmeme source= “unmaskd” only_single=false]I have a thing for a good opening line. No matter what I write, I want to grab attention of my reader in first 10 words. But this time I don’t want to be fancy. This time I want to start with simple words:

Thank you!

Thank you everyone who took time to post a comment, to tweet, to send a DM on this topic. My previous post, unlike most others, was way more applicable to me than to anyone else. We all can relate to a procrastination tale, but pondering over “to blog or not to blog” decision is certainly less common. So thank you for sharing your thoughts.

The decision has been made. I’m sticking around. At least for some time. There will be a new home for the Unmaskd journey, and although at the beginning it will look very similar to this one, over time the difference will start showing up. Ironically, many people misunderstood the whole point of “going big”, which I can attribute only to my cryptic way of expressing my thoughts. It’ll all make sense at some point. But to be clear, I have no intention or even desire to be a motivational self-help guru. This is all about a journey. My journey.

This process has started years ago for me, and yet it would always bring more frustration than satisfaction. I would take a step forward only to follow it with two quick steps backward. I would try a bunch of approaches to find my inner strength only to let it slip through my fingers a week later. I would fail more often than succeed. This is no longer the case.

Over the last few months I did more for “becoming one” than I’ve done in my life. Moreover, the depth and density of the effort I went through over the last week is more than anything I’ve done. It feels different. The results are different. My view of the world is different. I know. I’ve been through too many fake awakenings. But you always know the difference between dreaming and reality (no matter what Inception tries to tell us). This time it’s real. I’ve gone through the looking-glass I peered into for years. And the timing is not random at all. Talking about this openly as Unmask has been a major factor in this process. In fact, it the single most important factor. I didn’t expect this to happen, but it did, and now I can only wonder if this is what I was  shooting for subconsciously when I went to Twitter sign up page and typed Unmaskd.

As important as the last few months have been, this is just another stage. The journey is only to become more intense, more fulfilling. So I’m not giving up on my umaskd writings. I need it. But since I’m doing this anyway, I think my impact could be bigger.

I can’t say yet how soon this blog will migrate to its new home. I’m going to be very busy over the next months with a couple of projects, so it may take a week or a month. But it will happen sooner or later. This by far is not my major project, but I’ll be investing enough time into it to make it meaningful.

And let me finish with the same totally unoriginal line. Thank you. I’ll see you around.

    Dear Unmaskd,

    At the risk of sounding unoriginal as well, let me just say… no no, THANK YOU sir. Sincerely. This *project?* of yours has been very helpful to me and many others, I’m sure I speak for the masses when I say that it’s very satisfying to know that it’s helped you just as much… After all, that was really the point wasn’t it?

    I’m looking forward to whatever comes next!

    Kindest regards,
    Chantal (chantaliylace)

    Thank you too…I hope you will not spend so much time away from us. I like what you write, in fact, I like the way you think and try to express us feelings through words. It’s a very difficult task, but you have the talent. Your post before that made me thought a lot…. we try to be unmasked everyday just because we think that this new face is better, more beuatiful, truthful and ….perfect….but it’s not the true. When we got unmasked we see the good things, ok, but the bad things too…we see our doubts, weaknesses, jeaulos etc….and what we win? The truth about us….the truth that we don’t need to be perfect…but when we know our possibilities and limits we can break it all. So, don’t stop to write…don’t close the door of your universe to us…crossing universes is the only way, for me, to grown on this insane adventure called life.

    Kisses from Brazil to you.
