Greetings world, we’ve known eachother for quite some time. Life and myself that is.
Like many days, today was another day that caused me to stop and think. I appear to be having more and more of those once again lately. There is much to see in life when you stop and take the time to see it. For example, one may wonder why the elderly woman who hasn’t changed her car oil in 20 years still has a functioning car with no obvious problems while the younger adult with a 5 year old car maintenance properly has been having everything break on it for the last 4 years. (Hah.)
“Life is like a box of chocolates.” I completely, and 100% disagree with that. In a box of chocolates, there will be a thin standard layer of chocolate that you know for sure you’ll get. No matter how awful the inside of that chocolate piece might be you do know there something about it that you will enjoy. Life is not like that. Every once in a while your life will go from being sunshine and daisies to the worst winter in recorded history. You’ve got no warning, and there isn’t some underlying thing to expect there. Life is exactly what you make of it, you are entirely the one who decides how your day is going to go.
I woke up this morning with the most amazing woman in the world, sadly. She had to go to work, I am currently out of a job, excluding a very much so part time job (Truly, I cannot emphasis the part time factor of this job enough.) I decided early in the morning, 5:10 AM to be exact that today was going to be a good day. (Thanks bed for letting me get out on the right side. ) I could make the things complicated for what ails me, but the ending result is that despite certain negativity I find myself being very happy. Everyone will always be able to give you an abundance of reasons for anything they feel strongly about, and a few things for why they may support something they don’t understand, and perhaps a grunt for something they claim to support. But the people who know they’re right, why you honestly, and truly just know you are correct. You don’t give a thousand reasons.
Ex: Question: Why are you happy?
Answer: Because I choose to be.
Question: That doesn’t make sense, what happened to your car breaking down, or your financial health burdens or the various stresses of life weighing you down?
Answer: Like I told you before, because I choose to be.
Question: Please, explain. Why won’t you tell me whats wrong?
Answer: The answer is as simple as I gave it, why would I try to tell you anything but the truth. If something were causing me to be unhappy then I would not be telling you that I am happy, though I may refrain from telling you what ails me. I am happy because I choose to be, I have many things to be happy about. While the human survival instinct is to hold on to what causes us to be unhappy I choose to acknowledge that the negative events in my life have happened, they may cause me distress from time to time but it is my decision to be happy.
People, deny what they themselves cannot have. Things that upset the order. When you choose to take away the complicated veil of information that covers fairly close to everything these days it upsets people I’ve found. A rather great deal. To speak so plainly that there is no interpretation needed of your wording, no secret message, a completely honest sentence, would confuse people nearly as much as it would confuse me to understand why social standards and whats “Right” and “Wrong” have changed so drastically, or why morals are able to be put on hold for the sake of defending a people.
I’d like to finish my first Blog Entry with a Poll I was easily able to use with the suggestion of WordPress. I’m curious to how people feel about this, and intend to write my next blog primarily on it.
If you’d like to have my opinion or thoughts on a specific subject, all you need to do is comment and I’ll make sure to let the world know.
This is Russell signing off, hoping everyone in the world is having a good day. Especially you Cadence, thanks for always supporting me in my endeavors.
