Tonight I watched Phil’s vlog and he said something that I think I really needed. Every now and then I need a reminder that I dont need to stress and worry so much. He said..
“You still might not get a job or you might get a job completely unrelated to anything you’re doing. Everything in this life is a silly silly joke, just dont take it too seriously 90% of the time, thats seems like the trick to success.”
You could pass or fail an exam, you could bomb an interview or get fired..but one day you will be dead and it wont matter. He also said in his video that when your young, you are always fighting for “success” and basically just stressing and killing yourself to gain money, fame, things..whatever you think will make your life better. And you spend all your youth chasing things that dont matter and your unhappy. Then, when your old, you try to trade all your money, all your “success”, everything you’ve gained to get your youth back, to try to be happy. I think we realize what matters and what we should have done when its far too late.
I take life way to seriously sometimes but I want to stop that. Im pretty good about not stressing about things, Ive become a lot more relaxed about life and it feels good. I consider myself happy but I think there’s a lot of life Im not experiencing. I dont think Ive really grasped the idea of carpe diem and all that jazz..you know the whole “be the best you, you can be because your the only one there is. Follow your dreams no matter how crazy because who else is going to do it for you?” idea. I think Ive found my New Years resolution though. I hope 2012 brings a lot for me and I hope I finally find a path I am confident in. But I also hope I continue to find happiness in the things I do and experience and with the people in my life. I put way to much thought into my goals and plans to the point I get over whelmed and shut down when it comes to making decisions but Im going to take Phil’s advice and jut try something, start somewhere, and go where the wind takes you basically.
Goodnight. Also..link to the video..
