My hidden alias.

    I've begun to reach a point in my life where I want to find the hidden Wonka within me. What is a 'Wonka', you might ask. The Wonka is whatever you want it to be. But for me, its meaning, a passion, something that I'm yet to find that will drive me to wake up every morning with nothing but a dream. It's something hidden but identifiable, small but large, far but close. It's something that will define me, as me.

    Where would one find the willy to their Wonka? Great question. I don't know, otherwise I wouldn't still be looking. But that doesn't matter as it is not so much about the Wonka itself, but the journey that one must partake to not only find it but also refine it. How long will this expedition last? Who cares, why not enjoy the journey? it's the best way to learn new things, identify strengths and weaknesses and even find tranquility within this ever-growing, fast-paced environment that we live in.

    Take some time within your day, week or month to invest in yourself, as there is nothing or no-one more important than you. Your emotions, attitudes and beliefs rub off on people, so why not rub some of the good stuff around. You don't have to save a thousand orangutang's (although that would be amazing!) to be a good person. Becoming a better person, means something different for everyone. The simple act of investing in oneself, will bring so much intrinsic value to your life, that you won't ever stop.

    Who knows, you might find have already found your wonka but you just don't know what to do with it. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter where or how you find it, it only matters that you are looking. I'm still searching, and I will continure to search even after finding my wonka as one door closes, another opens. 

Regardless, I wish you the best of luck and a happy wonka hunting season!

    Join me as I experiment with new ideas and challenge old ones. Wherever this journey might take me, I can only assume that this could be the start of something or the end of nothing.



P.S - I love coffee :)
