Going to try to make today’s post a little more positive, though posts like this will probably be few and far between. I’m not a cynical person per se, but let’s face it – the world is going to shit. There are a lot more things to be angry about than not. That’s why I’m going to take a page out of Kid President’s book and give you a kickass pep talk.
I know there's something that you've always wanted to do but you're too chickenshit to take the first step. If I had a penny for every time I've heard “I wish I had learned to play piano” or “you know, I’d love to take a dance class”...it wouldn't do me much good since the penny is soon to be obsolete... But what’s stopping you from doing those things? I know, I know. You just don’t have the time. Well, how about not spending every night watching Netflix? God forbid your shows go without watching for one night. What's your next excuse? You just can't afford it. Well, if you stop using up all your bandwidth watching Netflix, your internet bill won’t cost so much, stupid. There, two birds with one stone.
Look, there are a million reasons not to do something, and if you’re going to let those reasons weigh you down then, fine. But stop complaining to me about how you wish you could learn to sing or how you’ve always wanted to take a cooking class but never did. I always used to complain about how badly I wanted to take singing lessons but I was too shy to sing in front of anybody. A few months ago I decided to suck it up and it has been the best decision I've ever made – aside from purchasing the deluxe DVD edition of Beauty and the Beast. Also, my biggest aspiration in life is to become a writer and for so long I thought I didn’t have what it takes so I didn’t even try. Well, you gotta start somewhere, hence the conception of this blog (much to your chagrin). So, I’ve crossed TWO things off my bucket list, and you have yet to cross off one. WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE? Seriously, it’s so easy. You just have to STOP with the bullshit excuses.
Stop being so lazy, get off your arse, and make your life worth living. When you’re on your deathbed, are you going to feel like you’ve lived a full life when all you’ve accomplished is watching the entire Saved by the Bell box set? Not likely, stupid.
