Look Out and Trust Yourself.

Have you ever felt this way. Where you are somewhere where you don’t want to be and constantly thinking how it would be on the other side? I’m sure many of us have felt that way and know that the wondering and imagining can just drive us crazy. The sad truth of the matter is that most of us don’t take that chance to experience it or even want to climb that fence to touch the coolness of the water, to see the sun in a different light and to experience something that is just a dream for the most of us. Yep, I know what you are thinking. Why the hell would I want to tackle the waters with all those obstacles? Why would I want to take the chance to be disappointed? Because we got one shot at this. Sure you have heard that statement many times. Sure it stopped meaning anything to you because every damn person says that. But think about it. After you have come to the last are you going to be happy, satisfied or extremely mad inside that you didn’t do more for yourself? Again. All of this is just a thought and I usually bring this up once a month. This is like me looking you in your face, splashing water in the cracks of your eyes and shaking you to wake the fuck up. I don’t want to hear the excuses, there isn’t a reason to try to reason with me. Look yourself in the mirror and figure it out, you have come this far in your life to make the decisions that matter to you and if you can’t believe in yourself to do the things that you want to do, who the hell will?

  1. Sorry I haven’t visited your site in awhile. But I just read that and remembered why it’s so awesome!
    I think we don’t tackle the obstacles to get to what we want because it’s easy to make excuses. “If i try for the job I really have the passion for I would have to start at part time or on contract and I’d basically have to start over”. I hope you get the idea because that is just an example. We make excuses for our lack of ambition, which I fear is just a fear of failure or fear of the unknown.
    So therefore I agree although I don’t think I put is as well as you did. But seriously we have to wake up and do whatever it is that makes us feel alive and not like we’re just numbly going through the motions.

  2. Ashley,

    Thanks for the response! I think it is important for us to remember what is important to us. We can lose track in what is important and a total waste of our time. We can listen to the people who look at us crazy for thinking the way we do, but those people are comfortable living the way they want. Let them and you live the life you constantly dream about and know that it isn’t going to be easy, but life isn’t easy in the first place.
