I sit here at my desk in my apartment looking out the window watching the snow fall to the ground. Its a beautiful amazing day. Fresh snow, crisp air and knowing that the people I love might not all be beside me but they are all around me. Then I start to feel this sadness come over me, How come everyone can’t see how lucky they truly are? You are given a chance every day to change your life, to change your outlook, to be a happier you and to help everyone around you. Time is so precious its the only thing we have no control over. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades! All slip by and when we look back to see nothing but regrets. I should have done this, I wish I did that. Then while you are sitting in the pity pool you’ve created more time slips away from you.
I refuse to let time slip away, do I still have to wake up go to the gym, go to work, pay bills and fulfill my obligations? of course, but I will NOT waste my time. I want to explore this amazing world we live in, I want to meet as many people as I can. I want life to immerse me in all that there is. I often say “there is nothing but time” but I am totally wrong! There is everything else but time. Everyday is gift, every moment a blessing, death is coming to us all, it is just a matter of time. So why would you waste excessive hours and hours in front of a computer or TV. Why would spend time with “friends” that really don’t give a shit about you. Every second of your life is so valuable you have to treat it like so. Your time needs to be more valuable then anything in your possession. You are that valuable! Your time is that valuable so why waste it on materialistic items or friends.
None of this is easy, to really take time and look at who your are and what you want to become isn’t that hard. Putting your effort behind what you want to become is hard. Wanting to change your life or a piece of it is going to take work! It will require you to think every day, to wake up and have a direction and purpose to your life. Do you not want to have a purpose or are you willing to be a drone to life? This is not about goal setting, this isn’t I wanna lose 20 lbs before summer to look good. There is no goal, this is ever changing and striving to go to the next level and then the next level. You have to refuse to settle for a life of mediocrity, you have to choose a life of continual self improvement.
Do not let anyone or anything block you from your path, People will look at you and think your nuts or your “friends” will say you’ve changed. If the people around you do not see that what you are doing is for you, for you to be happy. Then should they really be around you? What you are doing is just for you, this is not to impress people. This is not a shirt to wear or a post on FB. You have to make this for you.
I write this blog for me, I do this cause it really focuses me to see life. I publish this because I know that what I feel and have gone through others must have. We are not so different, no matter who we are or what we have gone through in life. I want people to know that they are not alone and we are all fighting the same fight, to be happy!
When you take that first step into change, that makes you true hero, you become self rewarding. You don’t need anyone to tell you that you are doing a good job! or keep going you can do it! Your results in change and how it makes you feel will become so exhilarating that you will drive to continue this path of self improvement. Time is running away on you, every second that you don’t do anything your happiness is drifting farther and farther away. Who you truly are is getting farther away. So stop wasting time and thinking about regret or what you want to do or become, just take the first step and GO!
Happiness is a mountain, Its the little steps that climb Mountains!
