Well I haven't written anything up lately so I thought I would jump on and do something. So lately I have had some revelations, things like, life is a bitch (one I think I've known for a while.), why drink yourself stupid, and health is important.
Life really seems to like kicking you while your down, I'm sure we all have experienced this feeling, which brings to mind a saying, "its not about how hard you can hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward, life will knock you down to your knees and keep you there if you let it." Which got me to thinking, "why do some of us make it to a happy and fulfilling life, while others dont?" Alot of us will push because we know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, unfortunately there are those who cant because they feel they havent got the power to push through. So remember no matter what what life throws at you keep moving forward, we all have the power, there is something more, bigger and better. Noone ever said life would be easy.
Lately iI have also come to recognise you dont need alcohol or any drugs to have a good time, I personally dont want to drink myself blind, it is a waste of money and a waste of my life. dont get me wrong I wont cut it out completly, I still like having a cold one after a hard days work or on a nice day. I also like to drink with friends, but its the company I enjoy not the drug. I have seen people crab walking due to alcohol abuse and they love it, but I dont want to later in life have memories of me wasted during the best years of my life, I no longer want to deter my future and what I could have for some artificial happiness.
Thinking about all of this got me to change my lifestyle, no longer spending my spare time on a couch, or in a bed sleeping. Now I would much rather be outside Doing something to better my life and get rid of old nasty habits. Just a bit of commitment and a bit of exercise can improve so much. This doesnt mean it has to cut into your personal life, I still enjoy going to the cinema and enjoying a movie or having some drinks with friends. just imagine the possibilities.
With this I leave you to ponder.
