It's been an eventful year. I'd like to think I'm finishing out the year with random thoughts and activities.
WE ARE NOT WHO WE THINK WE ARE.
If you think back in time….how much have you changed? How much wiser have you become?
If you think to the future and what may or may not unfold…….who's to say the fork in the round turns into a spoon. Or maybe a whisk.
Meaning: 5 years ago, I was not the person I am today. Who I am now, is not the person I will be 5 years from now. At this point in my life, I feel that I'm having another "growth spurt". Thoughts, decisions, future goals, priorities, interests, etc (the list never ends) seem to be running through my head ALL the time. And yet I don't really have an answer for any of them. I don't know if I'm the only one but its this time that i re-evaluate everything and question which direction I want to take my life.
Not to say it's a bad thing, but what I call a "growing stage". I know I've grown wiser in the last few years for the simple reason that this "growing stage" would have been mistaken for Lost or Confused.
I'm really excited about the things I want to accomplish for 2011 and what I want to prepare for in 2012. I've feel I've run the hamster wheel for the last 9yrs and it's time for some change. Or at least some new spice.
A year in review....actually, let's go back 2 years:
~I turned 30
~Employeed for an amazing company Europa Sports Products
~Relocated across country to LA, CA
~Turned IFBB Pro
~Became NPC Judge
~Activities: NFL games, indoor sky diving, Ate BY MYSELF at a restaurant and went to a movie (LOL), roller skating, HIked, concerts
2011…..to be continued
Boredom is an emotional state experienced during periods lacking activity or when individuals are uninterested in the opportunities surrounding them.
There’s one thing you have to fear, more than fear itself: BOREDOM
Boredom is nearly useless. The only thing boredom does is to remind you that you are letting life slip by you. Boredom is what you regret spending time on, every time. Worse yet, the more boredom you have in your life, the more boring you are as a person. And nothing can kill an opportunity then by actually being downright… boring.
Frankly, boredom will keep your lazy ass in doors. It’ll keep you from going to the gym. It’ll keep you from trying new events. It’ll keep you from traveling around the world. Or staying in that crappy job because it pays the bills.
No one talks about the boring times they’ve spent, why? Because it’s boring to hear it. Frankly, boredom will drain your life away. You should fear that above all else!!!
So I propose the next time you are out, and you start rooting into the floor with fear that the “timing” isn’t right to talk to a group of guys/girls, decide right there that of all the things you could be, you are not going to boring. You will not be lame!
Then just go and blow the damn set up, simply to see what happens. It’ll be far more entertaining that just standing around doing nothing. I’ll take risk of a momentarily bruised ego for getting shot down, than boredom any day. It’s frankly a lot safer.
"I HAVE GREAT AMBITION TO DIE FROM EXHAUSTION RATHER THAN BOREDOM"!
PS....I appreciate those of you concerned about my "spellcheck" but I wanted to update everyone on a previous post: Dave Bautista's name is in fact spelled with a "U". Not many people know this but WWE decided to leave out the U to make it easier for the public. Hence, I spelled both ways in my blog.
***Just a tid bit of info fo ya! ;P
There comes a time when you must stand alone.
...but know when it's ok to ask for help.
You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.
...Once in a while, Re-evaluate that your dreams are goals within arms reach.
You must be willing to make sacrifices.
...Realize the difference between sacrifice and priorities.
You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.
...Priority = what IS your true priorities in Life?
Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.
...Is unchartered territory safe at any time?
There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.
...Some say that perception is reality. Agree or Disagree?
Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.
...You must be able to determine HOW to better your life if you're going to try.
Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.
...Settling for Contentment, seems to be the easy way these days.
Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight.
...Should I speak up? Do I act now? Is it ok to feel? Don't ask, ACT
