See your world differently

Get Your Life

I think sometimes we have to step back and remind ourselves that we're only human and maybe that's the very superpower every one of us obtains. That the superpower of actually being human is powerful enough as it is. I mean, think about it: We have to deal with things in our lives that we don't necessarily don't want to face. Obviously the first idea is to run and deal with it later because you have something else to get done which you originally pushed back in the first place. Or, if you’re one of those that actually think twice and face it full force, kudos to you 'cause that’s mad maturity right there.

What I'm saying here is, maybe our lives aren't as perfect as we wished them to be. That waking up, going to work/looking for work, maybe even loving our jobs, hating our jobs, catching the train, sitting in traffic, going home, preparing food, doing laundry, eating the food, recognizing that the only idea of a workout you’ll accept is walking from one room to another, and trying to do as much work as you can so maybe, just maybe, a little load of stress is off for the next day, for the next second. I mean, isn't that what we do? Try to make today better for tomorrow?

Try to remember who are the ones that make your life just a little bit more dope. Try to remember what you can bring to the table of your own castle. You're the queen and king.

If you ask me, that takes a hell of a lot of energy. What takes even more energy is trying to decipher and eventually choose if the things we do every day, the people we are surrounded by—are they worth it?

From the many things we need to get done (and that’s all depending if you’re in a good or bad mood), to saying “f*** it all!” everyone tries, in their own ways. To say the least, life is horrible, like it’s really bad, no doubt. But it’s also pretty sweet, and we should think about those moments a bit more. That's an even bigger superpower we all have to face—willpower—and which world we're going to wake up to the next day: a world that we conquer with positive outlooks, kicking butt on a daily basis? Or a world filled with our drained ideas, thinking that we suck and everything else does too?

You choose.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
