Life is human’s best and worst teacher. You go through a couple of bumpy roads here and there, but that doesn’t stop you from following your dreams. Teens go through so many moments in their life because they’re already at that stage. I mean, from rebellion against authority to drama and sour relationship, that’s just life. And I’ve decided to dig deeper in depth into the meaning and concepts of human nature….Honestly, if it wasn’t for my college friend, Josh Chen, I wouldn’t have been so interested in going after the meaning of life, the processes of human nature and the human mind….Right now, this is my first step to achieving voicing out not just my mind, but my heart and soul. This is also a hobby in the making. A possible columnist in the making like Josh, here I come to carpe diem.
~ Felix Chow, an excerpt from About Bone
I know Felix is inspired by what I write: echoing the voice of my favorite columnist high school teacher Jaime Richards and the voices of the people I care about in my life, my parents, my friends, great figures like Emerson and Thoreau. The list indefinitely goes on.
But inspiring others, I believe, is only the first step.
Now that my younger classman Felix is also taking a stance on voicing his opinions and striving to touch lives with his life philosophies, I also plan to start a chain reaction too, and a friend like Felix is crucial to initiating such an effect.
Therefore, I’d not only like to honor Felix for his brief takes on writing and on life, but also to encourage him to keep going…as any mentor would, if I do say so myself.
But this isn’t just a recommendation. This is an invitation.
I invite you to read and reflect on what Mr. Chow has to say in Philosophically Speaking.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. See for yourself.
SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 UPDATE: Felix has switched blogs.
Read his Updated post here: End of the Road.
I commend you Felix. Keep writing, and keep touching lives in ways you can’t imagine.
Because, at the end of every day, I too realize, optimistic changes don’t have to be extremely world-renowned to be impacting. They can start small too, and lead to even larger changes down the road.
Start with the Daffodil Principle and see where it will take you. 🙂
Here is a great example:
Oh and Felix? By the way, “you’re welcome” (for inspiring you to be a columnist as well.)
God bless your heart my bro. ❤
