Nope, I am still the same sarcastic, cynical, mistake making, horror loving, drinking, writing arsehole you and I have both grown to love. (yes I said arse).
That’s not to say that I don’t want to make improvements or changes in my life for the better such as the fitness thing, financial, spiritual, etc. But this statement cracks me up. People make resolutions to make changes that they rarely stick with. Why wait? What’s the point?
I mean if you want to change some aspect of your life, then why the dramatics? Wake your ass up and make a conscious choice to change for whatever reasons. No need to wait? I mean why wait to be the person you want to be when you can be that person today? Besides if you want to get technical, the new year traditionally starts with spring or something for you lunar calendar people who don’t rely on the ol’ Gregorian calendar to make choices.
I mean people make promises to do shit everyday and to what extent the decide to stick with it is usually forgotten by Valentines Day if not, MLK day. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not here to “Bah Humbug your effort to make positive life changes but honestly, if you wanted to, I mean really, really wanted to, then you would not wait. Keep it real. Most folks want to lose weight or make more money but don’t want to make the effort towards those goals. You can’t or won’t lose weight while not being active and stuffing your face with junk food/soda/etc. If you’re not going to work towards a lucrative financial situation (a better job/career/business venture) or at the very least save some damn money, you won’t be financially comfortable or at least prepared for that raining day. This is especially so if you are constantly one to order out or go out every weekend.
It this simple people, Changes warrant well… changes!!! It’s a known my strongest opinion (and probably a fact in most cultures…lol) that when any individual procrastinates making a change of some sort, it is because they are afraid to or simply do not want to. Why they do not want to is perhaps a matter of being comfortable in what the current situation is or using it as a crutch. Why lose weight when you can use it as a disability or be lazy & not wake up? Why not start a business? Or get a lucrative career when you can rely on handouts or is it fear of change? No matter what it is, we allow these “security blankets” to hinder whatever resolution we are putting off in the first place.
If you want to cut people off, stop bending over, being taken for granted by folks, then leave those people behind today not January 1st. Why keep beating a dead horse? Why continue to allow people to feed on your vibes and energy? And not to play Devil’s advocate but if you constantly asking why people don’t want to be bothered with you, why your phone doesn’t ring or get notifications, or why you’re bored and alone while the world spins… Then sweetie, please evaluate YOURSELF…like ASAP! Everyone can’t be the culprit so stop the victim act and get YOUR life together! Instead of feeling sorry, wallowing in self-pity or regret, let go of the past and find so happiness in your miserable existence…. Then maybe (just maybe) folks won’t be hesitant to pick up the phone when you call or hell they may just throw you an invite!
That’s just my advice… There’s is no time like the present & the future isn’t promised. So what are you waiting for? Stop procrastinating and start your come-up TODAY!!!
Well Until Next Time Kiddies
