Problems happen. That’s life. I’m putting some thoughts on paper (so to speak) to get people I know and hopefully myself to possibly change them for the better. I’m what you might call a knowledgeable procrastinator. I know what needs to be done and the steps to take to accomplish those things, I’m just too damn lazy or stubborn to take them. If you’re like me in this, it probably pisses you off as it does me, and it probably causes even more stress in a life that already seems to have too much. I could go on saying, “hey, be happy you’re not homeless and you don’t have to dumpster dive for your meals.” But for some reason, that doesn’t get the reaction it actually warrants. So, instead, I’d like to encourage people to understand there is no past, there is no future, the only actual time is now. It doesn’t matter what you did, it doesn’t matter what you’re going to do. All that really matters in life is that you make the best out of whatever situation you’ve either been given, or put yourself in. i.e. you have to work, to make money, to house yourself, feed yourself, and pay for the smart phone you’re most likely using to read this. There are not too many people I know who love their job. I’m sure if you thought about it, you probably couldn’t name many either. My point being, it sucks, but the trick is to try to figure something out about your job that can bring you little bits of happiness here and there. Now, bring those thoughts to a wider scale and plug them into your life as a whole. If you’re able to change one thing from a problem into a success at a time, before you know it, the journey of life starts to become bearable, and if you’re on your game, it has endless potential. Something that helps me sometimes, is to slow down, look around. Not everything has to be done today. I know that sounds like the procrastinator in me coming out, but you know what I mean. When stuff gets bad and it seems like everything that can go wrong, does, that’s the time to take a step back and enjoy the scenery. When you’re debating on another rolled taco or the treadmill, that’s when you need to get your ass in gear and hop to it. To sum up… Despite what people say, life is not short, it’s the longest thing we do. Think about what you can do to make your time better and do it. The time is now.
