I might ramble on about this a lot but there simply aren’t enough hours in a day for someone to have a fulfilling day. We’re forced to live in such fast paced environments that a day isn’t really a day, but more so a time period in which we must CRAM every possible event. Recently i’ve truly been trying to stick to a set workout schedule, eat healthy, get all my work done while still have some down time. Is anyone aware how IMPOSSIBLE that is? Maybe my multitasking skills need some enhancements, but COME ON. I previously thought if we had longer days then that would solve the problem. The more I think about it however, the more I come to realize it wouldn’t solve anything. Its in American culture to handle a thousand things at once. The beauty of it is that the possibilities for anything you do are endless. You can choose any college to attend in thousands of fields. When buying a product you’re showered with different options, labels, facts and your precious consumer pocket fulfills the needs of some company out there. With each passing year living on this earth is a more intricate process. It’s honestly too much for me to handle sometimes. They say the generation that you raise your children in will be different than your generation, your parents, and so forth. With each passing generation all I hear the older folks say is “I’m glad I grew up when I did” or “I couldn’t imagine growing up in your generation.” With each passing year family life is changing, raising a child is a deceptive investment, and its every man for himself. Its just so fascinating to see that with advancements: people live longer, technology is spawning… and yet its a deranged world out there and is progressively so with every passing moment.
I guess as much as I want a pause button for me to catch up to the world out there…all I really want is to enjoy it. To live up to my life’s full potential. I want to stop and smell the roses as every other person rushes by and ignores them. I want to simply LIVE.
