I know this is going to be one of the most random posts I’ve ever made, but I’m excited! I recentlychopped my hair off, and as I as looking in the mirror moments ago I realized my hair looks exactly like the hair of the main character from my all-time favorite movie! Needless to say, I feel quite awesome at the moment! And on another note, I’m totally being one of those nerdy people right now.
Nerdy ol’ me.
My nerd system is on overload right now!
random fact: I was this |-| close to naming Annabelle, Anastasia. But I thought it didn’t sound right.
Sometimes you just have to choose that healthy food over the yummy Snickers.
Sometimes you just have to choose to exercise over that awesome marathon of your favorite TV show.
Sometimes you just have to choose to eat breakfast instead of sleeping in.
Sometimes you just have to do it.
Not as if someone’s forcing you, but because you know it’s what’s better for you.
We may not always LIKE it but we know it has more benefits and it’s better for us.
Just remember to keep on going and fight that battle with all you have!
Even when you drop off track remind yourself you can’t get stuck.
We often think of certain things in life as the “perfect way to live”. You know what I’m talking about, plenty of money, all the food we can eat, awesome cars, ocean view, etc. But is that really the “perfect way to live”?
Really, if you dig deep down, is that what you want? Is that what would make your life “perfect”? Probably not.
Why? Because along with plenty of money comes plenty of taxes, greed, and ungratefulness.
Why? Because along with all the food you can eat comes illness like diabetes, or high cholesterol, heart attacks, and more time spent on the couch instead of being productive.
Why? Because along with awesome cars comes those awesome insurance rates, lots of attention (mainly unwanted) being brought to you, and way more investment money.
Why? Because along with that beautiful ocean view comes hurricanes, tsunamis, and lots of tourists.
You see, there’s pros and cons to everything in life. So why is it the more glamourous something is, the less we focus on the bad that comes with? Or the less glamorous something is the less we focus on the good?
My life for example. I’m a teen mom. What do people do? They constantly lecture me on all the horrible things that come with being a teen mom. No being able to go out when I want to, not being able to stay up late like I used to, not being able to travel as far, having less opportunity. The list keeps on going. But do they ever say anything good? Very rarely. Like how having my daughter has taught me there’s more to focus on in this world than myself. Or how I’ve learned a lot more responsibility. Or how I have a better work ethic now because my work is going toward something more than myself. Or how I’ve learned to appreciate things more. That list goes on as well.
We need to be able to look at not only the pros or the cons but both and weigh them out.
I know, cliche. You don’t have to tell me!
But, along with Ted-Talk Tuesday’s, I’m going to introduce Throwback Thursday’s. Every Thursday I’ll reblog a popular post of mine for you all to read! Hopefully this will bring up some more dialogue for my readers. And hopefully it will allow some of my new readers to see my old stuff as well 🙂
the world keeps spinning
Every Tuesday for the next month I’m going to share with you some of my favorite Ted-Talks!
If you enjoy this, maybe I’ll continue 🙂
