Nah, obviously I don’t. But that’s just another lame reason to skip out the things people don’t really feel like doing.
I don’t have the time but I will always try to find some if agreeable situations require it of me. This week, I’ve worked my arse off Monday through the holiday through Sunday. Yet, I still found the time to do some laundry, cook something for dinner, talk to my friends, even play games and watch tv series late at night. Yes, I’m constantly tired but I’m happy. Or contented, more likely.
I know, I must also say this to myself, but people who complain about not having the time, about living the same routine each and every day, must learn how to manipulate circumstances around them. I mean, you say you don’t have time but still you sleep through the night, you eat your meals, and you live your day and you’re still alive. Whereas people, who had the time of their lives, who actually cannot provide food without someone else’s help, rot in the streets. So be grateful and accept what is there before you. Try experimenting on your days or weeks to diminish having the same tiring routine. Each day lived is precious so get up and stop wasting it, and maybe, we can really be able to say that we’ve got time, though not plenty, but enough to do things needed to be done.
Tip: Be the first to ruin your own day early in the morning, and be prone to pain. So the next time you had your day ruined by someone, the next time you get hurt, you won’t have to feel the same impact.
I am constantly being hit hard in this chest where my loving heart rests. One time was by a very good friend who left for good, about almost 7000 miles away from here. Twice was when the guy I used to love left me alone, brought me to tears and made me believe that he and I, we were never meant to be. Thrice is now. I’m currently having heavy breaths, and a throb in my chest which makes me feel that right now, I had my third official heartbreak.
Just what am I supposed to say?
Have you ever sat down, on your own, and think about life, the past, present, and future of what you are, in this world?
I have. Numerous times. And I still continue to do it ever since I was a child. I never intend to share vicious thoughts of this 23-year old brain of mine XD but here’s a list of some of my own virtues that I am wholeheartedly trying to live, from the day that I learned to appreciate them up til now.
- Always keep your cool. There’s no sensing what an individual can or will do when a single string of control snapped. And every time it happens, it’s not bringing good results. I admit that I have a very thin patience. Every now and then I would have to remind myself to keep calm, control my actions, and avoid bursting out my emotions.
- Do not look forward to the future, but always do look forward to tomorrow. I learned and started to live with this lesson back in college. Some people might think of me as a woman without a plan, without a future. And if ever I would be given a chance to explain, I would say, time and again, that I am a woman living in the present. And in my opinion, it’s a lot better than living in the past or in the future. I may not plan how to live my future, but I know I am enjoying every single bit of moment living in the present. The ‘future’ is just a fantasy after all anyway, until you’re finally there.
- One cannot buy happiness. Simply put, happiness is priceless. Do I even have to elaborate this one?
- Stop whining about almost everything. Try to see the good in what you do, in who you meet, and in things you encounter. I mean, if you live just to complain each and every time, where’s the justice in having a good day? You not only ruin others’ days by raving about things, you also let yourself be consumed by bad mood, by bad energy, and all throughout your day you’ll feel miserable. So stop it, surround yourself with people who will not pursue and agree with your complaints, but with people who will try to put you in a good mood.
- Reading is the best mind’s medicine. People who read are intellectual people. Try to have something to read around you at least once in a while. And if ever you came across this little piece, I applaud your urge for taking the time to read it. 🙂
- Be a good listener. You got a friend who needs someone in his/her darkest days? Be beside him/her, and try NOT to give bits of advice unless he/she ask these of you. Your friend needs your presence, not your so-called “based from experience” speeches. So be there, and try to listen. You got someone you’re having an argument with? Let the person speak his or her mind first and as you do this, try to weigh your reasoning before going for an all out war with words. You don’t have to shower someone with thoughts of what you are fighting for, you just have to accept someone’s way of thinking and it’s your choice if you let those things penetrate your own thoughts.
I made plans for September at the end of August. My plans for September were pretty much easy and achievable, I was pumped up for making it all happen.
Then first week of September came and I was like “Meh, one week won’t hurt,” I slacked off, I played my games, I never even bothered to mind my laundry, until it was the last day of September already, and I accomplished nothing.
Good thing I woke up as September ended. XD
But, really, I don’t mind. Making plans was just another reason and an excuse for pushing yourself to do the things you require yourself to do (does that statement even make sense? XD). Or maybe for me, for I’m just a one plain stupid lazy kid who never really ought to accomplish anything, without requiring myself, that is.
In short, “making plans” was not really a label meant to be working for me. It’s probably more like “going with the flow” or “do or die situations” or “on the spot” thingys, yea those would do some sweet scent with my name.
