So today I had a brief convo with a friend of mine. Mostly about my weekend, broke it down on how things went and how things didnt. But a few things that he said to me had a profound affect on me, it was fresh breath of air.
He told me this:
“You’re never gonna get what you want if you’re always worrying about other people”
It hit me like a freight train…
truth hurts. I do worry about others to much….about what they think.
Do I have what I want? Have I ever gotten what I want?
I cant pin point something that I truly wanted and gotten.
No, not the material.. but things of true value.
Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero – “seize the day and place no trust in tomorrow”
today will be the first day of the rest of my life.
Honestly I have a lot and I am EXTREMELY blessed with what I have…….but I dont have what I want.
sounds selfish. But I have never been selfish.
My friend proceeds to say, while im recovering from the hit
“just change it”
“kill old Lloyd”
but..I might need help.
