Day 25 of 365: You're Going to Fucking Die!

Day 25 of 365: You’re Going to Fucking Die!

I wish I had more time… I swear.

Wait, that sentence can be taken a few different ways. I was initially referring to my day, man. I’m fucking swamped these days and have little to no time to sit and ponder life (something I’ve grown accustomed to doing).

But also overall. Like life itself is pretty fucking fast. One day you’re learning to tie your shoes. Then you grow up and get your first crush. Then you do that ‘what is my true purpose’ thing. Then you’re 40. Then 50. Then 60. Then dead at some point after that (and that’s if you’re lucky).

It’s a shitty deal, man… or is it?

It all depends, right? I think it all depends on how you spend your time.

Like if you are doing dumb shit because everyone else is doing it, you are wasting your fucking time. I know people who are traveling to the same destinations to see the same shit that everyone else has just to feel they are a part of the club. That is a waste of time.

I know talented people who are not doing anything with their God given talents because they are busy chasing ass, or high and drunk frequently, or binge-watching the fucking idiot box (TV), or just plain scared to. You are wasting your life, my friend.

You get one shot… that’s all. No another quarter into the video game. No retries. No rehearsals. This is the big show… right now.

Shit. I have a girl that I love that I am currently walking away from. That’s some hard shit to do knowing that life is ephemeral. But you know what, I only get one chance in this body that I know of, and then I’m dead. I can’t waste my time trying to prove to her dingy ass that we could work out.

Nah, son. I’m out.

No, but seriously. Wake up, my friends. Do those things that you put off doing for whatever reason you put them off. Fuck that. Fear is fake; embarrassment is fleeting. You are only robbing yourself of the possible joys life has on the other side of you actually doing that thing.

Do you want to be a YouTuber? Do it. I did it and it’s not that hard. It’s a little unnerving at first but you’ll get used to it.

You want to paint, write a book, learn a language, whatever it is, just do it. Start today so you can be closer to completion. I swear it is easier than you think it is.

Alright. I have to go. I’m cooking dinner plus doing some editing work. I just had to get this off my chest, plus I get calls here and there from people who say they enjoy my writing. This one’s for you.
