Cute little fella isn’t he? It’s crazy how the little things can have such an impact on us. Like the flickering T8 that hangs above me or the fan spinning slowly as I work through the night. The world is huge and packs so many possibilities. Despite this, many forget there’s much more to life than the usual bullshit. Of course almost everyone “knows this” but few actually listen. People become so enveloped in day to day dramas that they forget about really matters. They lose focus.
I’m guilty of this as well. I’ve lost sight of what really matters to me. I’ve always said that my work is the most important thing, that nothing comes before it, but these past few months are a showcase of how I’ve failed to dedicated myself to it. Instead I’ve been wasting my time listening to what idiots have to say. I’ve been dedicating too much energy to projects that don’t benefit me in any way, not to mention exhausting all my resources in the process. It’s time to get back to work.
I hear people complain a lot. What interests me is not their complaints, but their actions which equal to none. It’s so easy to complain and blame others for your own incompetence, so why not stop for a moment and listen. Listen to the wind. Listen to the rain. They hold so many answers in the form of epiphanies. If you would only listen. A moment of realization is all you need. The little things help us remember. Maybe they’re there for moments like these, where we forget what we’re about. I know what I want. The building blocks are in front of me. All that’s left is for me to get back to work. Do you really feel like you have to deal with bullshit? The truth is you don’t, but you choose to. Freedom is right around the corner. It always has been. The rest is up to you.
