“I need a pause button!” How many times have you heard someone utter these words? We all seem to be searching for this imaginary and unreachable pause button. With the constant slew of demands the world tosses our way, we all just want a quick second to compose ourselves and figure life out, without life actually continuing forward. Think about how wonderful that would be? Imagine you have some unfortunate car troubles. The mechanic tells you that in order to drive your car again it will most likely cost upwards of a thousands bucks. Stress right? But what if we had this pause button? What if we could just pause life until we somehow managed to acquire an extra grand….and then were able to proceed on…..what a world that would be…
Alas, we live in a non imaginary world things like “pause buttons” don’t exist and life keeps forging on despite our undying wish to stall. It really is crazy to think how much happens in a day, and what sort of issues and problems we have to sort out in a 24 hour period. There is always something to be done, something to be paid, something to be late for, something to not want to do, something to enjoy, and so-on and so-on. That is what keeps life interesting. At least that is what we must tell ourselves to avoid going crazy.
I haven’t blogged much in the past year, not because I haven’t had anything to say, but because I haven’t found a moment to do it. I of course spent numerous hours watching netflix and other useless activities that could have been used to blog…but we will forget that….and say that I just couldn’t find the time.
2014 has been a whirlwind of a year. I have learned a lot. Expectations have been met. Expectations have been shattered. The youthful dream filled person I was before has been knocked down a couple pegs, and honestly, it probably was for the best. I was able to experience the realities of a relationship and the consequences of allowing a relationship to become the center of my own life. Needless to say that any song by Adele…makes WAY more sense now. Lots of good is happening and lots of hard work is now in store to take me where I have always wanted to be. This realization has been rewarding. Hard work brings fulfillment…and in order to fulfill my dreams… hard work will need to be sought after and not ignored.
It’s time to end 2014 better than I started it…by being 100% true and honest and believing in my full potential. Things will happen, if I make them happen.
