Paying Attention To Now

28 06 2011

It’s taken me some time to learn how to live in the now. I’m not saying I’m a pro at it yet but that’s the path I’m on. Or want to be on. I often reflect on my past to enjoy certain moments over again and to remind myself not to make certain mistakes over again. It’s okay to visit your past just don’t wear out your welcome. It’s okay to visit your future as well but the same advice applies.

Now is what we should focus on. What we have to work with right now is what we should cherish and enjoy. That way we make sure not to take anything for granted and live with little or no regrets. But we are human and there is no such thing as perfection so take it easy on yourself when you make mistakes. Just try to learn from them.


Being Perfectly Dysfunctional

19 06 2011

Okay, so I’m trying to get through life like everybody else out there. I sometimes wish there was a book on how I’m supposed to get the right education, find the right girl, make my family happy, make myself happy, find the right career path…it can be a bit overwhelming.

Life is about learning and loving,  making friends and making memories. Nobody told me it was going to be hard growing up but nobody told me it would be easy either. It took me awhile to realize perfection is a myth and doesn’t really exist. And all that time trying to be perfect is wasted because you’re never happy until you achieve something that doesn’t exist. It took me awhile to realize the importance of balance. With everything. That has become my newest motto. It took all of my experiences and relationships to grow up into who I am becoming now. And that means a lot of wrong turns down bumpy roads, a lot of free-styling in uncharted territories, and lots of mistakes that I desperately search for the lessons learned from making them.

What I’ve learned so far is that I want to lead my life by example. I want more kindness and compassion and understanding and equality. A good balance. It’s okay to be dysfunctional. As long as you’re the best at it!
