I truly believe quotes and sayings are cheesy as hell, but I also think there’s a lot of truth and depth behind the simplicity of said quotes. For example: “Everywhere we are is exactly where we are meant to be!”
Yup, pretty straightforward.
You are where you are for a reason, you obviously can’t change the past but you sure as hell can connect the dots backwards and grasp an understanding of why you are, well, where you are.
Maybe we can learn from cheesy quotes..
The truth of the matter is, some of us don’t like facing the truth. We don’t like cheesy, we don’t like being self aware and making changes. Change is hard, I get that. I totally get that, but when change is the only constant, what have you got to lose? Some money? Another job? Lose more friends because you want to change jobs in hopes of being happier? Because you might have to relocate to have the job of your dreams? Because you’ve peaked at your business and now are stuck on what to do next?
Fuck it, if you really like complaining and where you’re at in life, keep doing what you’re doing, if you don’t, obviously something has gotta give, you gotta start making changes.
Take your passion and hold hands with practicality and do what you need to get done to get that new job, pay off that credit card (cards), take that summer class so you can graduate in the fall, take a leap on that internship you’re scared shitless to take, just do it.
Don’t be scared of the truth, just face it, face your fears for the truth of the matter is you don’t want to regret any of this when you’re older. Accept where you are and make the changes if needed.
