It’s 3:40 in the morning and it’s hot and I can’t sleep.
So, naturally my mind wanders to the future… Where do I want to go with my life? The future is a tricky thing to plan for because it never turns out the way one plans.
I’m feeling stagnant and bored. I need a muse, some inspiration, some fire, some romance. Something to spicy things up. Something to motivate.
I’m thinking about becoming a “Big” through Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
Pouring out into others makes room to be refreshed oneself.
Everyday is a chance to progress into the person you strive to be, to stay the way you are, or to regress into your old self.
I’ve come to realize more and more that consistency (or the lack of it) is key to becomings, character, and change. It’s not about how long or how much, it’s about how consistent.
Who a person is in a single day, every single day, is who they are.
I’m not saying that if someone eats a quart of ice cream by them self one day that they’re a fatty, but if they do it everyday they will be. If someone is being hormonal and grumpy one day they’re not an awful person, but if they’re mean every day they could be. If someone kills it at the gym one day it doesn’t mean that they’re necessarily fit, but if they go consistently they will be.
Every day compiles into a lifetime, and every day contributes to who a person is and where they go.
Some days get more progress than others, but I’m going to take advantage of my opportunities and my days to try and reach my goals and grow as a person.
Life is stinkin short, y’all. Make the most of it (and all those other cliche, but true, sayings).
I just want to pour my soul out on someone and not have to worry about the mess I’ve made."
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low. Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home. Only know you love her when you let her go.
Staring at the ceiling in the dark, same old empty feeling in your heart, ‘cause love comes slow and it goes so fast.
Well you see her when you fall asleep, but never to touch and never to keep.
‘Cause you loved her too much
and you dived too deep.
Well, you only need the light when it’s burning low. Only miss the sun when it starts to snow. Only know you love her when you let her go."
It’s definitely time to reassess my life, values, and goals.
And by that I mean to actually set some goals for my life.
“Without revelation [or vision] people run wild,
but one who listens to instruction will be happy.”
Proverbs 29:18 hcsb
