Today wasn’t the best day for me…….I looked at myself in the mirror this morning, and thought to myself damn, ‘why did I settle?’, ‘why did it take so long for me to realise this path of happiness?’, ‘Why was I afraid all these years to live the life that I wanted to. I was so dumb and stupid to think that I could ‘pretend to be happy’! I hated the fact that I was following the masses and living a life that I wasn’t comfortable living. I knew I couldn’t be the only one thinking like this so I discussed it with my babi and we came to the following conclusion ……Mediocre living and thinking are comfort food for most people. It’s easy, it’s predictable, it doesn’t require much to keep it going. People don’t want to invest the effort to create an extraordinary one!
This is the advice that my babi (who was has been on the journey to happiness from day 1) gave me today. ‘Know that now you’ve consciously chosen to make a decision that you want to create a life that looks like it belongs in a movie, it should come as no surprise that 99% of people won’t understand you. Some will hate and doubt you. Some will envy you. Some will just shrug and say “Uhh, go for it.” Some just plain won’t understand you. Some will say “prove it.” Regardless of what they think or what they say, you got to tell them “Gotta go, work to do, history to make.” Because ultimately you’re doing the stuff most people just talk about doing. Your doing the stuff of legend. The stuff people will talk about. You’re the one people want to live vicariously through. Truth is? The world needs more people like you.’ This speech alone from him (which btw I had to record so I could play it to myself over and over again) was enough for me to feel like tomorrow is going to be different from my shitty day today 🙂
