On top of the horrid acne issues I had in the past, I also had body issues.
Damn, you never really realize how many problems you had/have until you write them out! They tend to get swished around in your brain, like a laundry machine being powered by a constant rotational stream of thoughts. It’s never ending and can drive people mad!
This is why people should write more; it’s the only way we can freeze a thought effectively. We can try to focus on one in our head, but how long is that going to last, really? That is unless you are on adderall or something (not that I’m recommending it!).
Before I go on a rant about why drugs are bad, let’s get back on track. What was I talking about again? Right, my body issues. Yes, I still have them (I’d personally like to be less flaco, or skinny, and more muscular). But doesn’t everyone? Even those with “perfect” swimmer bodies (*drool*), because they have to keep working out. Okay, before I continue any further I must find a pic to show you guys what I’m talking about. 😛 NOW do you see what I’m talking about!? Distractions.
This is Aarón Diaz, a.k.a. the sexiest man alive. AYY, TE AMO!
Getting back on track (for real this time!), I will echo what I mentioned in my last post, that one can never be fully satisfied. We just have to work with what we got. The point I’m trying to make is that I didn’t always do this, which left me feeling even less satisfied than I would have been. While we can never can be fully satisfied, we can come pretty close if we want it enough, if put in the extra effort, go the extra mile…
Got a crush on someone? Tell him! Or her. Want to get a good grade? Study! Not happy with the way your body looks? Work out (I’d recommend doing Insanity, which is what I do pretty religiously — you can find all the videos for free on YouTube)!
It’s pretty simple. We just like to make these simple tasks that we know how to do more difficult than they actually are out of laziness., and that difficult-label causes the goal to be pushed to the backs of our minds by less cognitively draining, less stressful thoughts. It’s not a bad way of living; it’s actually quite defensive, to preserve your own energy.
But there is a downside, a pretty big one: you’re limiting yourself. If no energy is dished out, none can ever come to you because there would be no room for it to enter. “You get what you give!” And if you’re not getting anything, how do you expect to go anywhere, change, improve? Life is full of change, opportunity, but we don’t have to be. I’d highly recommend it, though.
Be who you want to be. Do what you want to do.
Because I guarantee you nothing bad can come out of following your heart, which can be way stronger than adderall!
If you have a heart (and I’m pretty sure all humans do), you can do it.
Hopefully that motivated you. It sure helped me. Time to study now… One more final and then I’m free! Free to write the sequel to The Gene Pull! Super excited. 😀
