Reflexiones

No estás preparado… ¿o sí?

No estás preparado... ¿o sí?

Es cierto, llevo mucho tiempo sin escribir en el blog.

Viajes, cambio de trabajo, de país… no son excusas válidas. Hace algo más de un año me comprometí a esta aventura, y creo que me he sentado durante demasiado tiempo en este camino. Las cosas, o se hacen bien, o no se hacen. Pero ya he retomado fuerzas, ya me he levantado. Y espero no pararme en un tiempo.

Hace poco leí un poema que me inspiró a volver a escribir en el blog:

«If it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
Unless it comes unasked out of your heart
and your mind and your mouth and your gut,
don’t do it.
If you have to sit for hours staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your typewriter searching for words,
don’t do it.
If you’re doing it for the money, or fame,
don’t do it.
If you’re doing it because you want women in your bed,
don’t do it.
If you have to sit there and rewrite it again and again,
don’t do it.
If it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
don’t do it.
If you’re trying to write like somebody else,
forget about it.
If you have to wait for it to roar out of you,
then wait patiently.
If it never does roar out of you,
do something else.
If you first have to read it to your wife,
or your girlfriend, or your boyfriend,
or your parents, or to anybody at all,
you’re not ready.
Don’t be like so many writers,
don’t be like so many thousands of people who call themselves writers,
don’t be dull and boring and pretentious,
don’t be consumed with self-love.
The libraries of the world have yawned themselves to sleep over your kind,
don’t add to that,
don’t do it.
Unless it comes out of your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would drive you to madness or suicide or murder,
don’t do it.
Unless the sun inside you is burning your gut,
don’t do it.
When it is truly time
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by itself,
and it will keep on doing it,
until you die or it dies in you.
There is no other way.
And there never was.»
(Charles Bukowski – So, you want to be a writer)

Espero que este texto te inspire a ti también. A escribir, a diseñar, a crear. A aquello que sea lo que haces. A aquello que sea que te apasiona. Si eres empresario, cocinero, taxista, estudiante. O si aún estás buscando tu camino.

Y que lo compartas. Porque, a veces, todos necesitamos un poco de inspiración.

Que tengas buena semana.
