Learn to give thanks

It’s not easy to be thankful for everything we have in our lives when things don’t quite workout the way you want them to.

It’s so much easier to get frustrated and curse the stars for not being aligned the way you want them to. Just why? You look up at the sky and ask!

It’s better not to ask, in my experience. Just say thank you for the brief moments of happiness and keep walking. While you are at it also give thanks for being healthy and for you know just being alive. Being able to try again, to wake up and let the sunshine brighten your smile is reason enough to give thanks. You might not be here tomorrow, you never fucking know.

It’s not bad luck that’s after you chasing you down, it may just be bad timing. Everything has it’s own momentum, and if your momentum doesn’t align with his/her momentum what the heck can you do, besides waiting? Or not. Your choice. You decide if it’s worth waiting for or it’s just time to move on. thanks-keyboard

No matter what you decide don’t forget to give thanks. Thank the people in your life for their time and patience, even if they are on their way out. Just do it.

I know these are just nice words and sometimes you wish you could just say “go fuck yourself” or “it was a displeasure to meet you” but instead just say “thank you“. It will hurt them more or at least confuse them. Or you could just say nothing at all, your choice.

Thanks for reading!

 

 

Timing is everything

I was never one to look into the future hoping for a better path, but the past and present have always haunted me. The past always seems so far away and the present is fleeing.

Ever since I can remember I have been analyzing myself and my past decisions. I guess I make snap judgements and quick assertions in the present to convince myself to jump in the pool but never stopping to think the water might be cold. Once I’m in though, that’s when I take my sweet time thinking about why I even jumped in the first place.

It’s a strange feeling when you start to understand your own patterns but can’t quite change them. It’s like we are not even in control most of the time, but our brain goes into autopilot and forgets to let us know. How convenient.

So here is what I realized taking a quick trip to memoryville: Time is not always on our side. Think of all the opportunities you’ve missed because it simply wasn’t the right time. Think of all your failed relationships because you either spent too much time together or way to less, or simply because you where in different stages of your life. Think of how many times you might have escaped death, maybe without even knowing. On the other hand, think of how many times you where in the right place for something big and wonderful to happen.

What I would like to know is how the heck does one contact Chronos to give him feedback and possibly ask for a refund?

Jokes aside, I have to say I have eventually made my peace with this timing issue. I no longer curse the gods for their teasing ways but accept their mocking. Sometimes things don’t work out when and how we want it and that’s okay, maybe it just means we need to work on our patience a little bit more. Other times things happen so quickly and they escalade so fast you even forget to breathe, and that’s okay too.

Life is not a walk in the park for anyone, and even though timing can be une merde, don’t let it get to you so easily. We are equipped to deal with whatever life puts in our way at any given moment. If you don’t believe me just give it time.
