Has anybody noticed anything? Anything at all?
I’m looking around and seeing all of this festive decoration all over. When I watch television you see all of the commercial telling us to go spend money, for men to put up Christmas lights around the house and whatever else acitivities that happen around this time.
But think about this, it repeats every single year. After the holidays we will be talking about resolutions and weight loss, during the spring we will be talking about working out our bodies because we want to go on vacation in the summer. The summer time will bring something else and before you know it we are back to this very same place.
If you feel that you are just repeating the same shit over and over again, that is your fault. If your photographs of events that you have been a part of, especially the ones in bars and clubs that you frequent, are the same, that is your fault. Nothing is ever going to change unless you want it to and wanting is just the first part. You have to do and keep on that path for a month or two before it is a new habit. If it is easier to come home and watch television and you are constantly pissed at the world, that is your fault.
A little Story that I wasn’t surprise at, but didn’t care.
There is a person on my gchat that had a message saying that work life sucks. I asked him what he was going to do about it. He said just keep on complaining and just take it. I shook my head, I didn’t respond back and moved on with whatever I was doing. Was I shocked? Sure, initially, but I moved on just like he has moved on by just taking it. If you take it like that and it seems like you are doing that every single year and all you are doing is getting older than that is your fault.
Actually everything is your fault. Plenty things we can’t change, but what we have the ability to change is totally up to us. If we continue to rinse and repeat and hope something to happen to us and we just keep dreaming of what we want and not take action, we are simply leaves that precariously let the wind take it anywhere it wants to.
Think about this. As soon as that leaf falls to the ground, that is it. There is no lifting off the ground. There is no motivation to do anything else. The leaf is useless and is usually forgotten and trampled over. If you want to become that type of leaf, go ahead.
So if you want to amount to who you are now, go ahead. Do that. If you want to be somebody different than who you are, you know what you have to do, so do it.
The last remaining post of the year are going to be about some of my favorite photographs I’m working on putting into a self project I’m going to put together at the start of the year. I have a couple of people I know I want to give it out to, but if you are interested in it, please let me know. I’m extremely excited about it! It layout of the next post will be interesting and would love to know what yall think.
