But it does require you to feel.
Gettings things done everyday could be a hard task if we think about it. And that’s the point, if we _think _about it. We cannot actually get things done by thinking about it. We need to just do, to just make it happen, to just create what we can.
The best kind of action is not doing what we think we should be doing, but doing what we feel like doing. This is because it shows who we are and it shows what we really want to do. It shows are individuality and uniqueness. It shows our heart.
I have always dreaded waking up early because I feel like I deserve need to sleep and feel rested. And maybe I do. But that doesn’t change the fact that I’m using my time unwisely by extending my time of rest out of comfort. It’s so easy to fall towards the cushion of our comfort zones, but we all know that’s not where the magic happens.
I discovered (after all these years?) that if I just do it, if I just stand up and show up no matter how I think the day will turn out, things would be a lot more different.
And I guess that’s what I’ve been trying to do now…
I’ve been trying to think more positively. You know, taking something, pondering it, and turning it’s face around so I see the brighter side instead. I think it’s been working out pretty well lately. I feel it’s been working out really well.
I’ve also been trying to just do things. You know, writing that book I’ve always been thinking/ dreaming about. Doing that blog thing and posting on it like a boss. Creating happiness along the way.
But you know what?
I guess the negative isn’t completely so bad as to say it doesn’t serve any purpose at all in our lives. If anything, it’s the only reason why we become positive. How would we know what’s positive if we never saw the negative side of it?
I guess negativity, in one way or another, teaches us a lesson. This lesson must be taken seriously and applied so we won’t have to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. But, if there ever comes a time when we do find ourselves commiting the same personal crimes, then don’t worry too much. There’s always a reason why things happen and perhaps one of those reasons is because we need to learn-unlearn-relearn a couple of things first before we master it.
What makes a goal beautiful is not just the goal itself, but the process of achieving it.
Yesterday, I may have been the most passive and inactive and lifeless employee, sister, daughter, girlfriend, writer, and person. But tomorrow, things could definitely change. It may not be exactly after twenty-four hours but it will happen. Little by little. One day at a time.
So, I guess this means I’m encouraging you to give yourself a break. Live a little. Smile a lot. Work and hustle all you want. Life is more beautiful when you let go of the things that don’t help you grow. 🙂
