Hi, boys and girls, you may have seen some 'status updates' mine regarding what most would describe as something took from a "self-help book" and I wanna give a quick clarification.
Trough my years here on DA a lot of people send me notes of gratification for the micros, that "made someone's day", that is "inspiring", that help, in some way, to cheer up someone, I had my bad days too, and received a lot of support from people I hold 'till today special care, I'll have more bad (and good) days in the future, and it really helped when someone cheered me up. I'm having the best days lately, this year has been fantastic so far, and I'm really grateful for everything that has being goin' on in my life.
So I want to help, in the way I can, you see, my deviant page it's like my home, and I try to be the best host around. Some may think here is not the best place for that, I don't know, and I don't care, if something help cheer up anyone, even a little bit, either for a micro, a journal, or a note, it would have made my day. Some days you just need a word of advice, something to 'ignite' you.
And my advice to you today is this:
Move on, time is constant and it doesn't wait for you to be ready, sometimes you'll have to suck up and heal in the middle of the fight. Don't look/expect changes and opportunities in people/places that will never produce good fruits. Choose wisely, your life as it is now is the result of your choices.
Get out of the pity pot, the world doesn't feel sorry for you, so why should you feel sorry for yourself?
Don't look for excuses, we were trained to find excuses to hold ourselves back, aim higher, don't look the world trough a key hole.
Get off your ass, you want to have a better body? Go to the gym, or run in the park; you want better grades? Study, you did, and yet you failed the test? Study harder.
The things that matter are long term things, and that's why most doesn't achieve, because dedication and patience is hard to have these days. So, they get in petty lies, feeling sorry and regret, sometimes not even that, it's easier to shift the guilt, try once, fail, and give up, clamming life isn't fair.
Get of your ass, if you expect the girl(boy) of your life will accidentally pop up, or your future boss will knock your door later tonight, or that you will sleep and tomorrow wake up with the body of a DC super hero, I got bad news, it WON'T.
But if you go for it, dedicate your time and be patient, I garantee, you'll have better chances to get what you want, not only that, life may surprise you with something even better along your journey.
And Remember: Be patient, that job you dream will come, you'll receive the salary you believe is fair, you'll meet someone that 'makes your day', you'll be able to pay the bills, you'll make your family pride, you'll make your own family, create your own history, travel to places you want to, but can't now, everything will happen and much more. But before that you got to hold your ground in every spin the world gives. Hang in tight, it will work, it might not now, but it will, just plant the right seeds, and you'll get the right fruits.
I'll catch you guys later
