Make Time Because You Will Never Find Time
Have you ever been in a situation wherein you would always wish there’s more time to do things you want than the actual time you spend on the things you need to do?
There are some lucky ones that get to do what they want while they get to do what they need as they’re paid to do the things like and with that, they’re also doing what they need. While others just have learned and mastered how they could love what they need to do. Or in plainer sense, some people learned to love what they have to.
Before I get any further for nothing specific and probably start writing anything gibberish here, was there any point in your life when you wanted to do something but you felt you can’t? Or that you’re too afraid to get what you’ve always really wanted because you’re too afraid to let go of what you already have?
I have few wants, while I have countless needs. It may be the opposite for the others but really, I have limited yet rather expensive or perhaps, for the lack of better word, ambitious wants. Well I guess most wants are often ambitious.
Let me ask you something. What if you knew you’re gonna die but you know someone else’s life depends on you? I know that’s rather morbid but most of the time, we tend to hold off our dreams and ambitions lives for someone else’s or to help their dreams come true,whether consciously or subconsciously, at some point of our lives we’ve done that. Or maybe still doing.
Are you living, or should I say, depending on your pay check?
If not, then good for you. I thought I wasn’t. Little did I know that some of my goals and dreams and ambitions and wants and needs (as they all seem to have become fuzzy making it difficult for me to determine which is which and which shouldn’t and should be), these things drive me to reach out for what needs and has to be done, but sometimes, they become too much that they sort of slaving me.
Everyday I have to wake up early in the morning to get ready for work because I would always remind myself that I’ve got a house to save for and that I couldn’t stand a day without doing nothing to work on that goal. Everyday I am doing what I have to thinking that there’s nothing else I could do. Like I had no choice. But of course I am wrong.
I have a choice, it’s just that I don’t act on it. It’s just that I don’t acknowledge it. Or maybe I do. I just don’t act on them.
Do the Things That Makes You Happy. Just Do It.
I just finished watching a movie entitled, Stranger than Fiction, and like any other movies (it doesn’t matter whether they’d be comedy or love story, I would at some point cry in some or most of the scenes — that’s always the case). I did cry. But unlike any other movies, I felt deeply moved by it. Moved in a way that I would actually write about it or mention it on my post. Of course I’ve written about Nicholas Spark’s The Last Song. However, this one’s clearly a movie that made me think about what exactly was I trying to live for? Like if I would have to stand still for one second and think about what I have been so busy about, could I really tell myself that I have been doing something that’s truly worth it?
You see, we would always put off what we always wanted to do in exchange for something we have to. We always have to wait. I have a terrible habit of doing that. I don’t live for the present, I live dreaming and thinking about moments that I want to the point that I don’t get to live the present. I am very idealistic. Sometimes unrealistic.
Alright, that’s too much emotions in just a single post. I’ve read and watched enough. Perhaps I shall leave you with something to watch. Below is a video of Nike’s amazing campaign about how everyone just have to live it. Just do it.
