“You know all those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.” –Anonymous
It’s always nice to have a blunt self-reminder, especially when its honesty is borderline palpable. We should preface the proceeding inspirational train of thought by saying that last week we were taken by a horribly misquoted Heraclitus, something along the lines of “nothing is forever,” which we then tried to spin into a ray of positivity (and by this we mean we tried to give a pep talk to the overwhelming sadness of a well written diary entry), but failed miserably. We thought this week we’d take a different approach, opting for a quote thats anonymity meant less time spent resolving its apparent identity crisis and more time reflecting on its meaning.
What we were trying to extract from last week’s three-word thought was something along the lines of “don’t be afraid of change” and “never settle.” Sure, these are remarks you’ve heard maybe a thousand times, but at some point you must prompt yourself to act on them. Frankly, we could give you a million and one reasons to discontinue your epic daydreaming charades, but no one can better convince you of this than yourself.
Change is maybe one of the hardest and most rewarding aspects of life. Embrace it.
And because we’re sure you’re dying to read the saddest (short) story ever written (kidding, we all know that was every one of Nicholas Sparks’ novels – again, kidding), we’ve attached an excerpt from the perfectly inspirational gloom of last week’s post below:
This excerpt, though sullen, probably couldn’t be truer:
“The point of this post is to prompt self-reflection. These moments are never the easiest to partake in, especially when they require sorting through that box you’ve had packed away in your mind’s attic for the past year (maybe longer). And we think it’s time. You owe it to yourself to always look beyond what you can make out in the distance. “
