Where I’ve Been

I keep going on the my blog to begin to write some thing and then I become distracted or think, ok well, where I’m I going with this topic in my brain.

I have been off of here for sometime, about 6 months. I get disappointed at myself when I can be so consistent at times, but then when I fall off the bandwagon it’s so hard to get back on.

So, this is me getting back on the horse. Breaking my self back into writing. I have committed to a 90 day challenge with my pal bloominginspirations go check out her blog it’s very inspirational and beautifully put togeather.

I have been wanting to blog, but I realized that if I’m gonna do it I have to just do it.

This is sort of my theme for this season of time in my life that I’m in right now “just do it”. Yes this phrase has already been coined by Nike…but it does fit well into life as a general rule.

Now, I have been kind of indecisive as to what to do next. In life and in writing and in general. There has been alot going on in my personal life that I have had great trouble navigating. Great trouble deciding what to do and to be honest I have been more tossed then I ever have been in my life.

In effort to get a clearer perspective on what do I do? I bought the book The Subtle Art of not Giving A F*!$ by Mark Manson. Now before I get into sort of a review of this book, I have been feeling like alot of self help books have been becoming same, same.

With the same basic premise of; be thankful for what you have, change your perspective, work on the deep seated issues in your life. Set your mind in advanced, stick to a routine, think positive, change your vibration. Which all practices are right and helpful in there own right.

However there comes a time in life when the positive affirmations don’t come so easy and even when you do, do them they dont feel true. You’ve blasted the music but once you turned it off all the feeling came flooding back.

You have cutout all the bullshit people and crappy stuff in your life but all the great things and people are no where to be found at the moment. Or just don’t do for you what they once did. The negative stuff kind of overshadows all the great things you could be experiencing.

But even in this book where I thought I was gonna get some helpful tips on how to truely let go of all the stuff I classify as “other.” I got more of the “change your perception” talk.

So, I was forced to concede that life gives us lots of ebb and flow. In order to cope we have to remind ourselves of what we were doing when we were in the flow state. Even when it feels like these thing are not working, perseverance is key because the one thing that is constant in life is change.

A very helpful tip I took away from this book was to focus on the stuff that you do give a care about. If you care about learning put all your care into your studies. If you care about your relationships put all your care into developing them. Put 100% into everything you do go for it.

I heard a great quote once that said

“If life is a game… then why not play your best game.”

Jordan Peterson

So, here we go on this 90 day challenge

Game on!
