The title of this blog is actually a quote from a dude we’ll call… Snowflake as he comes in and out of my life like one… Won’t say to much about that. Anyway, this person was actually referring to me with this quote. As I am a person who does things like I mean it.
It’s always puzzled me how people can through the motions of life doing things because it’s expected, things that they don’t want to do, and usually the result of these half-hearted efforts prove that maybe, they never wanted to do anything in the first place. Wouldn’t we be happier if we only did the things we wanted to do? And, when I say that, I really mean it. When you’re a child, you have to learn responsiblity therefore you require some guidance from a parent or parental figure. But, at some point in time you’re the one in charge, the one calling the shots. Or at least you should be… What would it be like if we only do what we mean to do?
I know it’s kinda hard to believe that I do only what I mean, but, honestly it’s true. I work at the place I do, because I want to. I live in the city of my choice, I have the friends I do because, I love them…etc. And, therefore, I’ve given myself permission and the necessary tools to live my life like I mean it. Which is why I’m sooo passionate about it, every aspect of it.
People are increasingly looking to live a life with meaning. Okay…so, what were you doing before that realization, living a life with no meaning??? Yikes!!! For how long? I believe that it’s our futile attempt to live up to another person’s expectations that keeps up from living our lives, pursuing our happiness with meaning. We don’t want to percieved as “selfish”, when honestly, it’s yourself that needs you the most. If you are depriving your life of meaning, it’s hard live it–I didn’t say exist in your life, as that’s pretty basic. The machine that is the body, the motherboard that is the brain works until there’s no electricity left and then it stops working. But, between then and now, what are we going to do? Me??? The answer is clear: What I want, and I’ll do it with meaning.
