    Ever feel like ur not living in the moment? That ur just going thru the motions but ur not really there or interested in being where u are in life? Waiting for something better to come along whether it has to do with relationships or a job. Ever feel like u can just get up & go, just leave when u've had enough or fed up when u've reached a dead end & u can't take anymore? Is it good to keep on taking it or is it saner to start fresh & new---a new lease on life?.....

    Just waiting at the moment.
    Slowly planning things out, it'll be fine. =]

    It all works out for the best.

    Don't u wish u could have a padded scream room where u can just yell ur lungs out to relieve stress? I know in Japan they have rooms filled with things that u can break. They give u a bat or crowbar or golfclub & u pay them to break cheap mass-produced objects in a room to relieve stress.

    Ever see u mind drifting when ur doing something menial & mundane? Wishing for something better to happen in ur life instead of the same old same old? Every week the same thing then another weekend & same old routine.....like clockwork.

    The book I suggested above might actually help you. Basically the philosophy is this.....the past is gone forever and unchangeable and the future is out of reach, so allowing our minds to exist in either of these is futile. Focus on the now and you'll be much happier.

    In a perfect world everything would turn out the way u want, but in reality, u take what u can get or make do with complacency.

    And u dont have assholes negating everything u say for the sake of negating.....

    And the vibe, exchange, even flow & interaction with others is always fluid.....in a perfect world.

    Maybe you're getting too caught up in the outcome. By shifting your focus, it's possible to enjoy the journey rather that the destination.

    Yes, it's all about the journey icon_smile.gif .....And everyone should have the time of their lives, instead of leading mundane lives....


    Point is, how do u go about making ur life brilliant & a life worth living? How do u love the life ur living?....

    The only dead end in life is death.

    You can always change the direction you're in. If something in your life isn't making you happy, do something to change it. Learn to force yourself to be proactive about the situations you're in, and make them different.

    Hate your job? Find a new one. Don't like your friends? Find friends you do like. Unhappy where you're living? You can always move.

    I'm not thrilled where I'm at in life right now, but I'm working my ass off to get to where I want to be.

    Going through the motions, why bother? Savor every day, make it count. Dig deeper, reach further, dig deeper.

    dude, it's NOT as easy as you're making it sound though and reality says otherwise. some people DON'T have choices like that available to them those options are readily available to them. you're talking as if someone can snap their fingers and these things will appear. sometimes, these goals take years in order to make them happen. it's all of a matter of having patience and everybody has a limit in regards to that. try telling that to someone who's depressed or who is basically tired of life to simply go out and get something when they may have tried and haven't succeeded.


    Always said no to or they're always passed over for someone more preferred. "Ur not what we're looking for."

    O to win the lottery! If u werent born with a silver/golden spoon in ur mouth, do whatever it takes to make ends meet. Model or act if u were born with looks, use ur mind if u were born with brains to get urself out of ur situation.
