Ulog #24
Date: July 20, 2018, Friday, 11 am

I have not been posting recently and I miss Steemit. I have been down and procrastinating and out of focus with anything and everything. I feel like I am drowning at sea and I keep gasping for air and paddling with my hands to keep me sane and live each day.

I've been just looking at myself selfishly for some reason, possibly repairing damages and nursing my ego or whatever. Life is too damn freaking hard. Hahaha! But it makes me laugh because despite anything and everything, we still have things around us that inspire us and make us want to go on, if we only look at their direction. If we only choose to see the light, we will see it. Even here in Steemit. Light is here and hope is here as well.


People get tired, get sick, they drown but they push. Like my mentor @surpassinggoogle. His FB post was a prompt for this post. I remember when we first chatted, the next few days, I told him I had a Steemit song, and it's MC Hammer's Too Legit to Quit and he said, you are more like gonna be too lazy to quit. Hahaha! I am lazy and a procrastinator, I guess he figured it out as a first impression because I am very inconsistent, even if I can be consistent. His FB post yesterday, got me thinking about my Steeming. Here I am, I believe in him and ULOGS yet I don't move and focus. But here he is, more dead than me, deader than me. Hahaha! Yet he pushes and pushes to make things happen. I feel awful and at the same time inspired. I went through the ULOGS tag once again and see people doing their 70th ULOG but I'm here on my 24th. That makes me want to push. Put my heart where my mind is, I believe in ULOGS. So, today is a start of a revamp of @mermaidvampire.

Then coincidentally, I checked my friend's page, @meetmysuperego and one of her recent posts is entitled: Give Up Tomorrow. I was like, wow, it's a sign that I should not give up but go on. Hahaha! It was a ULOG and she tells about her busy days and no posts in 10 days because of all the pressure and stuff in her work. She invited me to Steemit, she is the reason why I am here. So, I look at her, too! She is one of the awesome people in Steemit, for me. She pushes and loves the platform regardless of the life she lives that has a lot of roles in it.

Life is too demanding, but we must never lose focus, priorities and action. All of us have lives to live, priorities to prioritize, roles to fill and dreams to make. We can't stop, keep pushing. We drown, but go keep paddling.

Be lazy to quit Steemit.

Keep Steeming!

You are both Magnificent! God bless.. Have a nice day!

"But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
~ Isaiah 40:31

When you feel like giving up, you are missing out on what God has to offer. There are so many things that demand our attention and while it may be good to leave behind unhealthy relationships, jobs, and habits, it's also important to keep fighting for what is good and right. Fight for marriage, fight for your kids, fight for your health - don't give up! Know that you are not alone, and know that we are in the hands of God- He will provide us with strength when we need it.


What an inspiration! I will fight for my goals.

You are both awesome.

When we need the strength to keep going, the best place to which we know to turn is God’s Word. When we feel like giving up.


It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32

Keep going, keep running, keep moving, keep praying!

Jehovah is your hope
He's your strength
He's your confidence
Whatever you lack,he'll supply

yes, it's true. maybe that's part of us being human, we have mix emotions that sometimes we get lazy and wants to give up. I even think that way but i still don't because here in steemit i can express my emotions through writing, unlike facebook if you express it all others will judge you right away with out knowing the reason. I found steemit as my home, where i can learn about life, how to handle it. i learn what's the best thing to do and even motivation. That's why eventhough my writings still not notice, i still want to live here. We must live here to have fun, and express sadness. Keep steeming @mermaidvampire because you're awesome with out a doubt. God bless.

Your post came at the right time. I haven't posted for a week. However, your post is a call for me to get up from my slumber. @surpassinggoogle's Facebook encourages to continue the struggle despite my situation.


Go! Talk about your favorite movie or a song that psyches you up. Or better yet make a ULOG. I will make a contest and a challenge soon, it will be a prompt for us to be able to write a post each day. Let's keep steeming!


Thanks for the advice.

Just hear your name and @surpassingooggle I feel so positive coz thats how you taught us to be strong.Keep it up Don't give up if you give up it is just like a house that one pillar is cut off.

You are so unique. Sometimes i feel the same way, i have been motivated to stay strong and keep pushing my dreams.

Be lazy to quit Steemit.

Well said. If you think you are lazy, then be lazy to quit what you have started. I started my ulogs a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoy ulog.

Yeah I'm too "lazy" to quit too. Hahaha. We just need to rest from posting from time to time so we don't get burned out.
