Ready or not...

2개월 전

I don't know, man. I got no words of wisdom, no thoughts to bounce off ya. Maybe I should write something deep, maybe I should talk to you about what's going on in my head, but maybe I don't know what's going on either. Or maybe I do. I don't know, all these people getting caught up in this "I don't know" mentality, if that makes any sense. And all they do is sit on their ass and try to "figure themselves out" to the point it's sick and it doesn't let you live.
I don't wanna be like that. I don't know much about myself either, but I know enough to understand I don't got time to sit around and think and "figure" shit out. Life's happening right now. You don't get a repeat.
There's no nice lady in the wings saying "Whenever you're ready, madam". This is it. You're either ready or you're not.

I know, I know. I keep coming back to this idea in my recent posts. I think. Pretty sure. Anyway, it's something that's on my mind, I suppose.

So, since I can't provide much wisdom, I figure I'll let a gentleman by the name of Sully Erna speak for a while. This song below has been my mood for a good few days. It's called "Crying Like a Bitch". And no, I'm not pissed off or anything. In fact, it's an extremely free feeling.

Makes you feel unapologetic, as you should most times. Listen. It applies to a lot of people you meet, both in the real world and online. Here, too, particularly of late. And I'm wondering if maybe he'd be okay with becoming my personal trainer. I mean, he doesn't have to do anything, which is only fair, as I have no money to actually pay him. But watch him, around minute one, where he says

I'm tougher than nails, I can promise you that/Step out of line and you get bitch slapped back

Doesn't he look like a guy who gets shit done? Like he's not sitting around moping, waiting for a better tomorrow. I really love watching those fifteen seconds. Sully Erna's a smart guy.

Also teaches you one needs a healthy balance in life. I mean compare the bare-chested man above to the sweetheart playing the piano below. What an incredibly versatile man. No seriously, if you only listen to one song today, let it be this one, because it's brilliant.

Anyway, I guess that's what's been on my mind. What's on yours? How are you spending the last days of summer?

See? I told you, summer (and life) passes, and one day soon, you will too.

Well Hon, I was enjoying whiling away the last days of Summer until someone reminded me that as the Summer, I too will soon pass, now I'm making a damn bucket list!


Well, I was gonna end on a happier note with some other video of some cute singer, but then I figured what the hell, existential angst it is.
We will pass, though, good to keep that at the back of your mind. ;)


Do share when you're done with that list.

time is your enemy, dixit Sully Erna. Live, cease the day, yes. Go out tomorrow and flip a coin on every crossroad, go where the coin flips you, full connection, full trust, definitely more interesting. You could start a blog "where will the coin take me in 40 days?" :-)

Now that could be fun :) just imagine if you truly trusted the coin, went all in, met new people, seized the day and everything. Who knows what adventure you might have? :) I love this idea, thank you.

Ahahah not sure if he'd appreciate the "gentleman" part, but Sully Erna would sure make one hell of a life coach, wouldn't he. Although the focus of the post is not the music, I have to say it was nice to listen again to the aggressive side of Godsmack, - it had been some time for me - while the second song has been steadily in my rotation since you fist posted it.

About the post; I like to think that a healthy balance between thought and action can be achieved. I mean, life is indeed a line that goes from point A to point B, only you have no idea where point B is in time and the rules of the game haven't been explained to you, so it's good to stop every now and then to figure shit out, or sooner or later your thoughts are going to catch up with you regardless. But all thoughts and no action - that makes for a pretty good waste of time, I agree. Love the energy, anyway.
Oh, and thanks for the reminder about the end of the summer closing in :)))


Oh I'm sure he is a lovely person and true gentleman ❤️ I know, it's great to listen to them, especially in such combos that showcase what a versatile band they are.

And I do believe it's good to take time to reassess and figure stuff out. It's just, well, I keep meeting all sorts of people who make this big deal out of "working on themselves" except they don't really get anywhere and they let life slide by. I like to think you figure yourself out as you go along. I agree that your thoughts have a way of catching up to you, in the end. Can't run from yourself forever, can you?

Well, it is :)) I think it's important to note these things because they can be scary. Everyone I talk to is like but summer just started and it's creepy to think it's already over, but also a good reminder to move it. ;)

I am no longer young, but not quite old yet, either. Life moves much more quickly now than it did when I was truly young. I was forewarned of this, but it still surprises me. There are places I once thought I needed to visit, and big things I thought I needed to accomplish. Now I am realizing more each day the importance of blooming where I am planted, loving my friends and family, and spending time with people I love. I never have wasted a lot of time trying to "find myself", because we change as time passes, anyway, so why bother? My Christian faith defines who I am and why I am here, and that, too, has kept me from wasting a lot of time mulling over those issues. I am spending the last days of summer trying to stay out of the heat of the day and enjoying the earlier, cool evenings. There is a particular insect that begins an evening concert in mid-August. As a child, I thought of it as a sad reminder that school would soon be starting up again. Now I hear it and am grateful that the school calendar has absolutely no bearing on my life any more.
