Lately, I’ve been declaring my love of G.O.T. through a few Game of Thrones playlists (which you can see here and here). This one will be my last but I make zero promises about whether or not I’ll be mentioning the show again before the season is over. I most likely will because this is what obsession dictates but we’ll at least cool it on the music related front for a while.

So I just watched the latest episode and it made me think about a few things. It might be terribly far-fetched but this episode was clearly a setup. This isn’t a negative point. Every good television show, movie, book, etc all have a period in the story that is purely there to lay the foundation. You can’t have the major payoff without introducing the scenery, setting up the characters, their motivations, wants, and desires.

I won’t go into spoiler territory at all. The internet is dark and full of terrors but this blog will not be a jerky spoiler zone. What I will say is that the obvious foundational aspect of this episode made me think about this blog and my life in general.  

Every high point only happens after you’ve put in the work.

Every goal is achieved after you’ve laid the foundation. 

Every climax occurs after sufficient build up.

When it comes to my life and this blog, any sort of big opportunity that I’ve come across has happened after hours of work and dozens of attempts. The journey isn’t always glamorous and some moments are more enjoyable than others but ultimately it’s all worth the rewards along the way. 

Our lives aren’t made up of strategic storytelling and we aren’t living in a medieval fantasy but we do live in a cycle of highs and lows that take a series of steps to get to. As I wait for the sixth season to reach its ultimate climax I can’t help but look inward and question whether or not I’m laying the right foundation for the results I want in my life.

I’m still sorting through these reflections but it’s interesting how a fantasy show about gray morality and a few Game of Thrones playlists can spur all this introspection. Haha. You really can find creative growth in the strangest places!
