How long did you think about your first blog post?
I belief it’s all about “getting started” and don’t think too long about what to write. It’s always good to introduce yourself and what it’s all about.
My name is Emanuel Waibel, I’m 29 years old, live in Austria and I work as a Taxi driver.
I started about seven years ago to do self development, critical thinking and asking myself where I want to go, how I want my life to be like. I’ve made some mistakes in my earlier years that dragged me into uncomfortable situations like sitting in front of my bank account manager who told me that I don’t get more money until I change something about my spending habits. Or sitting at home waiting for my girlfriend to call and tell me that she forgives me… what never happened and now I’m single since nearly three years but fortunately my bad habits about spending money changed and I’m nearly out of dept 😉
What also happened nearly three years ago was that my father died at the age of 59. He lost his fight against cancer, and today my aunt is also fighting against the same kind of cancer. This makes me think a lot about where we are going and what is our purpose in life.
Is it all about working, sleeping, eating, loving, hating, give and take, struggle, pay our bills and fight against every thing that is happening to us and/or our loved ones?
If there is God or Allah or Buddha or any other spiritual force, why they let all this shit happen to us?
Well, the biggest breakthroughs happen in difficult times when everything seems to go totally wrong. Everybody has got his stories to tell – the good and the bad ones, the disappointing and the empowering ones, the strange and the normal ones. Every life is full of moments and events, but it’s not only about single moments in time. Life is about every second that we manifest the next moment that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
I want to create a legacy, want to live a life that matters, a lifetime that I can look back at and find it was good. Not only for me, but for a lot of other people around the globe. I don’t want to lie on my bed knowing that my time to leave this world has come with a feeling of regret and sorrow for that I have not done what I could do.
I want to connect with people around this awesome planet who belief in a brighter, better future and share my thoughts about life because it is the most valuable thing that we have called life.
With best wishes from Austria
