12!

I want you to read this thread, very carefully. Because that's where it all began.


I don't talk about my early days on HIVE (or STEEM) too much. The context usually isn't there. But my story is quite interesting, I think. You see, I was never really a "part" of any community back then as I am now. I belonged to a niche, and that's about it. It was all business. And business was good, pretty good really ;) It was during the ATH of steem and most of my steemstem posts were in a range close to $100, yeah no kidding! $100! $50-60 was almost a norm.

And yet when real life issues got in the way, packed schedule, moving between countries, I left. Let me rephrase that. And yet, I could leave. The allure of that much money meant nothing. There was no anchor holding me to this place.

The reason I bring this up is, I am faced with very, very similar (almost deja vu-ic) circumstances in life right now and any other time, I would have left again.

But the "problem" is, I having so much fun right now on HIVE, it's almost unreal. This time around, I belong to a community, not a niche. The relations are much more on a personal level and business has become secondary.

Maybe the wise panda was wrong after all. It's not just the money. It's the anchor that's holding me, the fun, the interpersonal relations we have established. Talking to Dada, Linco bhai, Reaz bhai, and the নাটেরগুরু Sakib gives me a sense of belonging. But that thread up there, that's where it all really began. That single thread of comments is probably the single most important reason why I'm still here writing this post. Everything on my watch list is significantly up and green for two days, except one. Guess which one LOL! And that's exactly my point! I'm not here for the greens! Sure, it'll be a jolly ride If it ever does really take off. HF well done lol! but that's not why I still find some time after every hectic day to spend some time chatting with the folks! It's the priorities, and they have become a priority.


And just like that a month went by, in the blink of an eye. Believe it or not, I had taken up a similar challenge on myself back in February this year, to write regularly. That stopped after 5 days :D But the constant push this time around takes me to my 12th post for the month. 4 more than last month. It's a nice number to stop at, don't you think!

Sentiment is a strong thing, sometimes much more than we care to admit :)

We want to see more than 12 bro. You and Sakib bro both are such creative writers which always worth reading. Sometimes money can’t hold everything. It’s the relationship and bonding between people which are much worthy than money. Like you, I believe so..

Ofcourse we will bhai :D

Indeed bhai, money can not be the most important thing. It is very important, yes. But at some point in life it's the mental peace that we desire so strongly!

You know this very well that it is never about the number, it is always a silent fight. It is a resistance. It is always a sence of longing that is identical to many of us even if our age, background, current state of life are all very different. It is always a personal fight for me. To prove that which path is more rewarding. The easy one? Or the difficult one? I have always chosen the difficult path, to me it has always been rewarding. I am sure you will choose your path, doc. To me I am under no illusion:

This is not the tale of impressive deeds…Is a piece of two lives taken in a moment when they were cruising together along a given path…With identity of aspirations and conjunction of dreams......"Ernesto "Che" Guevara, The Motorcyle Diaries

That's the way I feel about it.

It may sound cliched dada, but I guess the more difficult the path is, the more rewarding the outcome is. But at the same time I also think it's not so simple as labeling the two paths "easy" and "difficult." It's more of a "correct" and a "wrong" path and as it so often happens, on the blockchain and in real life, the "wrong" path is the "easier" choice.

Sorry champ, for it took me this long to reply. I wad trying to find our first ever convo on the blockchain but couldnt find it.

Isnt it amazing how far we have come since then? It was exactly like that for me too as it was for you. That insatiable thirst for a sense of belonging is a hard thing to come by. Yet we are here. We are doing what we wanted and hopefully it will be the same till the end. And it wouldn’t have been possible for the rest of our mates! Nor will it ever be!!

Yeah I couldn't find that article on you blog too for some reason. So I had to google the title of the post to reach the article :D

Isnt it amazing how far we have come since then?

I know right! It's been just about 6 months and it feels like an eternity we've been on this journey! Theory of relativity kicks in I guess :D
