I strongly advise you listen to Modern Guilt by Beck if you haven’t lately. Especially while driving and not texting.
Ambition and motivation. As someone living on this particular place in the world, I have the privilege of having just about everything I need and still being too lazy to go out and claim it. Domesticated life is wonderful but is easy to slump into and settle. What about dreams and goals? Where did those go? I like to blame my college experience on destroying all of them (because it did), but also negative people. I can’t blame them personally though. I should never have allowed myself to be surrounded by such bitter folks. More often than not, people confuse me with them. At worst, I’m optimistically hopeless. At best, I am ambitious but fruitless. Bring on the fruit!
I lead a satisfied life in general speckled healthily with days of utter sloth and cynicism. Maybe I really do need more fruit. Actual kind.
Let’s all get motivated and do something we wouldn’t do this week. Skydive, go for a run, floss. Figure it out and tell me what you do when you’re in a funk created by work and the forgetfulness that somewhere in you lies talent. Dan, you are not allowed to post a snarky comment. That will be your thing!
Time to get out more, enjoy what’s left of these crispy fresh days before Winter 2011 swallows us whole.
