There are no random acts…We are all connected…You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind…― Mitch Albom (via psych-quotes)
Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.Chuck Klosterman, Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story
Sometimes, I think that indecision is such a contradicting force. I’ve always thought it was the kind of thing that, if embraced, makes things easier. And I think I was right- Indecision is the grey area that so easily turns into contentment. You become okay with not knowing, and routine, and living within the same kind of boundaries you set for yourself- and you live comfortably.
There is such a fine line that indecision stands on. When choosing to stay indecisive, you begin to settle and root into the ground below your feet. You subconsciously make decisions based on the concept of ‘staying.’ And don’t get me wrong, but for some, this might be really ideal. Becoming okay with a lifestyle just because you couldn’t decide to make changes. Going through the motions just because it’s what you know best and it’s never given you an issue thus far. To me, that is such wasted potential. Some of the best moments of my life have been the ones of extreme courage when I went out on a limb without promises or guarantees. The times where I evaluated where I want to be and rid of what was holding me back (even when I liked it at the time). To be honest, those are the times that I used indecision as drive and motivation instead of waiting for an answer in the sky- those times lined me up to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. Whoever you are is exactly who you wake up and make your mind up to be, and I truly believe that.
At this point, at my age and with everything that’s going on around me, I need to remember to remind myself to never get too comfortable or embrace contentment and indecision too much. Be flexible and love the journey, and maybe even fuck up a few times. But always leap forward. Know your role and be the only factor that defines it for you. No matter where you are, how far deep your in or how far away you are from your goals, nothing is ever permanent and it is never too late to become who you intuitively know you could be. Be that.
On that note, I’m going to take my pants off and do the homework that I’ve been putting off all day/night
