Nothing is ever easy. I wrote this a while back and I feel like I need to post it again. No guarantee that all the links work but if they don’t I’m sure all you intellectuals out there can figure something out.
What’s so wrong with the world that we can’t just look at ourselves and be happy with what we have been given?
Why do people care so much about what others think of them?
I try to live as if only my opinion of myself matters to me. I wear what I want to, I think what I want to, I do things when, where and how I want to. This world is so messed up. We have this idealist notion that to be sucessful we have to look good. Sure it helps if you don’t smell like ass but what’s to stop the most horrid looking person from being the most sucessful person around?
Cause everyone knows we’re strange
So why do you feel ashamed
Everyone knows we’re different
So why do you feel ashamed
We love you all the same
This country is done for. We have over extended ourselves through warfare and now there has been some question of corruption in just about every part of the government. Was this always happening and I was too young/uninformed to know it or is this new? More importantly, what are we to do about it?
Run away? I’d rather not. All these issues and no one to stand up for what’s right and tear the public away from their couches to take action? Anarchy?
The Feeling makes me feel pretty good. The Feeling is a British rock band. British rock bands make me feel good? I wouldn’t mind traveling. I would totally go to Britain. I definitely think that would be pretty fun.
Working in London as an up and coming computer specialist? Yeah, something like that would be fun. Maybe Australia if I really feel inspired and crazy.
Nothing is simple any more. We’re all competing. Which is fine, it’s good to give people a reason to excel at what they do but at the same time everything needs to be taken in its context.
Not everyone is the same. But, with enough work and determination any person can do any thing. Pigs can fly, monkey’s can write Hamlet and I can make a time machine out of a Delorean. It can all happen.
Speaking of that, I want a Delorean too. Some guy started making them again with parts he found online. Someone pass me his number, I’m going to have to ring him up.
Christmas is coming up. That’s fun times. No school for a few weeks, presents, family, friends, hot chocolate? Yeah, I’m all for that. After that, New Year’s. Always fun times. Probably just have some peoples over to chill and play games and watch the ball drop.
So all in all, the world is a crazy messed up place and if I can do something about it I’m sure gonna try. Apart from that, things would be so much more awesome if I had a helicopter.
Everyone take a good look at yourself and forget anything anyone else has said and judge yourself on how you feel. If after that, you don’t like what you see then find out how to make it better. The only person who can judge you is you. People who don’t get to know someone and just determine that they aren’t worth a second glance aren’t people I want to be associated with.
And if things get you down, just smile. Be happy you are alive.
Ok so maybe part of me was just too far into making no sense but there was some good stuff in there. We have to make the best of what is given to us. We all have skills and talents that we discover or create. Let’s make the best of it. I ask every person who reads this to wake up every day and look themselves in the mirror. Ask the following questions of yourself.
Do I like what I see? – this can be either physical or something deep down. I prefer the stuff underneath.
What can I do today to smile? – because I believe being happy makes us successful, this is incredibly important
Can I make someone else smile? – why only spread cheer to ourselves? Share and enjoy.
When I go to bed, will I be ok with what I’ve done? – the end of the day offers time to reflect. Truthfully, you don’t have to be happy to accept what you’ve done. It’s just important to know that the things you do are what you consider to be right.
It’s 230AM and I watch way too much Knight Rider. May you all find your peace. I have mine.
