That age-old saying is stupid. Why shouldn’t people be curious? Curiosity doesn’t kill you; it makes life exciting and creative. In my opinion, it’s comparison that screws us up. Comparison killed the cat.
It’s so easy to get hung up on what we don’t have and what we haven’t achieved, rather than making a plan to get it and being thankful for what we do have in the process. Until a few days ago, I had been doing a lot of that. And now, I could bitch slap myself for it. Seriously. And maybe even throw in a judy chop too. Because the truth is, I have way too many blessings that I don’t deserve to be moping around because of what I don’t have. That’s pathetic and a sure fire way to an unhappy life. And ain’t nobody got time for dat.
And you know what could have saved poor kitty? Work. Good ol’ fashion pull-up-your-bootstraps, get-ya-shit-together hard work. If you want the fabulous life painted in your head, do something about it. Dreams may build the mountain, but to get to the top, you’ve got to do the climbing.
Be humble, be eager, be ready for embarrassment. And don’t take no for an answer.
Okay, I’m done invoking my twenty-four-year-old wisdom.
(Btw, I’m not trying to be preachy or sound like a know-it-all douche. This is basically a get-off-your-ass post to myself.)
