It’s amazing how our priorities are majority of the time on things that barely mean anything.
We spend so much time and money on a lot of “blahs” empty nothings. Perhaps that is what makes us human or we just like to take the easy way out. Don’t we all?
We have dreams and aspirations but only a handful of us actualize those dreams and aspirations. Those who go past the ordinary, depriving themselves of immediate satisfaction, growing through pain to become extraordinary.
I generally keep my eyes on the price for about a month when trying something new. When it gets way too frustrating, I find the next big thing. There really isn’t any magic wand or genie 🧞♂️ that makes wishes come true. There are laws to everything in life. You reap what you sow. There is no alternative to hard work and we know this with all certainty.
As tired as I am when I get home from work, I manage to squeeze in 10 minutes of workout, I can watch tv 📺 till 10 or 11 pm but I can’t get myself to write. Which is harder, working out 🏋️ or writing ✍️? Working out makes me look good which is something physical ( I don’t work out because I want to live long) on the other hand, writing makes me feel good and I write because I have committed myself to it.
Even reading my bible or studying is a struggle. I’d rather scroll through my phone 📱. I guess what I am trying to say is, we spend so much time on things that adds value to us physically, whereas those things that makes us different and special, those things that brings us inner joy and fulfillment, we struggle to keep our focus on. There should be a fair balance.
It’s hard, I must admit. However, it can be done. We just have to keep trying until we get it right. Taking the high road isn’t an option. No pain, no gain.
What’s your struggle?
