Ladies and gentleman, it has been one hell of a long time since I’ve posted (really only like 4 months but still.) Over the last year I have changed so much as a person in such a positive way, and I would love to share some things with you since you’re taking the time to read this. PS I have a lot of thoughts running through my head so bear with me if what you read is all jumbled up.
The quote above is from a song that not very many of you would find appealing to the ears, but its the general attitude and message of the lyrics that hits home for me. When it all comes down to it, this world we all live and breathe in is ours in our own way. There are certain things we can control, and others that are out of our hands that we have to accept. A lot of us over-think, worry, get angry or just react to things in a negative way that can completely change the situation and turn it from a learning experience into a problem. Creating problems is unhealthy for you and your wellbeing. For example, on days where you feel like little things just keep adding up and adding up to make for a crap day, what is getting angry and upset going to do for you? A very good friend of mine told me today she was reading something and it was talking about how our first reactions are usually wrong in most cases. We just react because we feel the need to react. When really we all need to learn how to take a step back from situations and just recognize what’s happening and what it means. Some people do this too much though, we call this over-thinking. You can only think about something so much before you find something deep down that you feel is wrong. Get over it. Most things we do or don’t do in life are filled with problems if you dig deep enough.
“The deeper you dig, the darker it gets.”
What I’m trying to say is, you have all the power to control how you feel and how you react. Sure, it’s difficult to control every emotion you have the instant they arise, but I believe it’s possible. I believe in being happy for no reason at all, having a smile on your face for the smallest reason. Today I woke up under two blankets inside of a warm home. That’s awesome. Be selfless. Do things for people just because, you don’t always need a reason for an action when it’s for good. Be kind and loving. In contrast to that… Be selfish. Never forget that this is your life to live. Do what makes you happy, love the things you want, be yourself and strive for the crazy goals you day dream about. I can’t guarantee you that your every dream will come true, but by following your heart you will be on the correct path. And that’s all we can ask for! I know this piece has been a mix of random thoughts but that’s how I write 🙂 and I want to leave you with a thought..
When was the last time you had a second thought about something you wanted? Why did you think twice? Was it worth it to think again or did you miss out on something? I live with no regrets but today something small crossed my mind and I thought twice… And shoot! I should’ve just done it. Sometimes you gotta just throw yourself into the water and let the current take you wherever it wants.
An awesome arrangement of questions that really open up your heart and let your mind explore and find things you haven’t discovered in a while. Really take some time to think about these things. Enjoy!
