I will be turning 26 on October 9th. One of my best buds is going to throw me a party at her house and I am having it anime themed!! I am going to dress up as Ponyo!
This past year of being 25 was quite a year. In no way will I say that anything terrible happened, because I know that there are people who suffer horrible experiences. I just felt I learned a lot of lessons.
I believe I experienced a taste of a mid-life crisis, a break-up, a period of anger towards myself, losing myself, becoming more of myself, felt intense jealousy, felt intense love, and my favorite, fully accepting and loving the person I am for the first time.
I do my best to remember the following now on a daily basis:
-Stop being so damn selfish. Remember that the BEST HAPPINESS I can ever receive is by bringing joy to others.
-Think of others and ask how other people are doing.
-Don’t complain even in silly situations. I have a lot of blessings.
-Spend time with my parents and family and friends.
-Time is precious and cannot be wasted.
-Eat healthy, Exercise, and read.
-Drive safely, a car is a weapon.
-Let the angry people be. Not everyone will like my comedy and what I do and “That’s the way it is” (Celine Dion song remember?)
-I can only control my actions and my feelings. I can’t control anything else.
-I need to have a good balance of work, fun, and time off. I always have had trouble balancing because I go hard on one thing for a while then it gets stale and I move on to something else. Here are examples of that: Dyeing my hair different colors, getting piercings, getting tattoo’s, drinking, dating, stand-up, writing, drawing, being lazy, being sad… I have an impulsive and addictive personality and I must keep a watch on myself that even if I get addicted to a good thing it can still BE BAD.
-Do things for me and make myself happy, but remember that I am always learning and can’t be so stubborn.
-Work hard and be NICE. Nobody wants to help out a jerk or be a friend with a flake.
-Instead of being envious, wish all the great things that I would want for myself for that person. Everybody has a different life and a different path.
-There is no one like me.
-Keep your damn mouth shut. Somethings need to be kept to myself and somethings I can share.
-It’s hard to constantly feel pumped, excited and inspired all the time, but even if I feel shitty just keep working and have patience. My time will come. Just ride the wave out and know that everything will be all right.
-Allowing God back in my life and trusting him that he has a path for me.
I feel terrible for a lot of my actions and thoughts, but we are human and deserve chances.
