Deep Thoughts

Obviously, its been a few days since I posted, although that post WAS awesome, I've been doing that a lot lately, posting only like 2 or 3 times a week. Not necessarily a bad thing, just a fact, although I would like to get back to posting every day. Just lately I've been drawing a blank, haven't been able to think of much interesting stuff to talk about.

Anyways, I was looking through blogs, and came across one that Jack Sh*t did a couple days ago, about regrets, and it really hit home. Heres a little piece of it:

English writer and clergyman Sydney Smith once said “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.”

Being young, I haven't lived enough to have many regrets, and for the most part I enjoy my life, other than the being over weight thing which is being worked on. But on those times that I do find myself thinking "what if it had happened differently?" its always things I didn't do. Not to get into too much personal, and entertaining detail, but like the time I surprised this incredibly beautiful girl with flowers (somehow she knew they were from me, even though I didnt leave my name) then chickened out and didnt even make an attempt to ask her to Prom. There are many examples of funny stories like that. Years down the road, when I'm reflecting on my life, what will I end up regretting, and will I look back at myself right at this very moment in time, and regret that I couldnt wake myself up and make my life healthier now.

I definitely do not want to look back on my "glory days" only to find out that I didn't have any. Its for that reason that I need to get ahold of the situation, improve it, and take control of my life. Take control and steer it in the direction I want.

Take Control..... I think thats my new motto.

P.S. I love how sometimes I don't even have a goal in mind, and then the words just start coming out.

  1. In the seven habits of highly effective people...he has you imagine you are at your funeral and to think of what you would want people to say about you....who would be there? What would they say bout who you were? Your work colleagues, your wife/girlfriend, your family. What would you want them to say, then plan backwards. This was a very good post. I think you write better when you just ponder.
    Oh, and I have a blog award for you, just scroll down.lol.
