I was pissed off the other day.
Just genuinely pissed off with the weight of expectations fogging up my mind.
They say misery loves company and I say that I was a whore for feeling bad.
A dirty one too.
You had a bad day? Please, that’s a fucking tropical oasis with coconut straws compared to my lot in life or so I stubbornly thought.
There I was trying my hardest to be the sorriest son of a bitch on the block when all of a sudden I had a moment of clarity.
So what in the Hell happened?
Well hold on to your tattered boots and cheap cigarettes there cowboy, there’s some truth in the paragraphs ahead.
That’s it. That’s the secret in sauce right there. Two words. Nine Letters. One Meaning: Embrace it.
If you truly want to set yourself free, you must embrace every choice you make in life. In other words stop playing the prisoner and start playing the warden. It’s more fun that way and you get a genuine, shiny badge too.
Choose to embrace your life and embrace the choices you make.
You’re the one who’s making them, so take ownership and if you don’t like something: fix it.
Embrace it so much so that you give the choices you make a big-old, dumb, family-reunion fuck-hug.
Now I don’t know what a fuck-hug is but I think it sounds pretty funny; needless to say I’m embracing it.
Are dreading having to go to work tomorrow?
Embrace it. You’re the one who applied for the job and the job provides for your life.
Do you have a mile-high pile of dishes in the sink that you’re avoiding doing?
Embrace it. You’re going to enjoy a clean sink.
Do you have to give up your free time to work on your goals?
Embrace it. The work is how you will accomplish your goals.
Are you procrastinating going to the gym to earn the body you want?
Embrace it. Sitting around wasting time hasn’t yielded any results yet.
What I’m saying is this: stop giving your power and your happiness away to trivial matters because the truth is, if you embrace the choices you make in life it’s going to dawn on you that you can change your lot in life and give you a sense of power and control.
When you embrace all aspects of your life, to me it makes the work easier and more bearable.
It can even bring a sense of fulfillment to your journey.
Embracing is the single-handedly the best Jedi-mind-trick I can find along with being grateful.
You get one life to live, so embrace it. Embrace who you are. Embrace your family. Embrace your friends. Embrace your goals. Embrace you.
Please like, comment, share and tell me what you think. What do you need to embrace? What’s your piece of advice when it comes to embracing?
