It's a month into the new year... and what df do you have to show for it??!! By golly, this year is moving at the speed of light huh?? Anyyywhoo, I know that life is going by really fast, yet seems slow at times, but actually, it's really fast, so don't waste it. I remember my homie Alexis had a facebook status (p.s. i'm back on facebook and twitter! (blahhh)), that I will now roughly try to remember...
actually, nevermind, lemme go look for it... hold on!
see how fast that took! Back already!
"Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. It's name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against "tomorrow." You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running!! Make the most of today."
Moral of the story, don't waste precious time in your life that you may think you have a lot of. It's constantly moving and will never stop or reverse. So if you don't use it... now! It is gone forever.
I read on another one of my friend's twitter today (forgot who, sorry!) that if you do something for 28 days, it becomes a habit. If you have a bad habit of doing nothing with all of your time, OR not making the most of it, I suggest you make a list of some things that you can do to form new, more productive habits! I have tried to make a semi list. Not sure wether I should wait to start February 1st, (since Feb. has 28 days) or to just do it now. I should probably do it now! lol, anywho, I will share my list, and then you can let me know anything else that would be productive to add!
1. gym/ working out
2. Facial exercises
3. Waking up early
4. eating 3 times a day
5. doing one new thing a day
6. meeting one new person a day
7. doing one good deed a day
8. Filming something everyday
9. Eating an apple a day (?)
10. Eat more fruit and veggies
11. practice Russian and Japanese
12. Practice guitar
13. Write everyday
Doing all of that stuff every day for 28 days isn't too much right? It would probably take up an hour all together at the most. But that's just the start of my list. I have just realized that one of the main things my life lacks is structure. I am a freaking wandering leaf! Trust me, my life will still have all of its spontaneity, but I just need to use my downtime MUUUCH more wisely.
Lemme know ya thoughts on my truth for that azz!
peace in the middle east!
