“What I pulled away from this is a rather simple concept. Everyone in
life is on a journey. When you just sit and think about it, you can
feel lost/overwhelmed. Then there are the unique people that come into
your life that guide/help/carry you through difficulties that life
brings. But in the blink of an eye those people could be gone. You
never know when you’ll loose one of then. Those special people come
and go, but in the end, you will find “your way home.” Ultimate peace.”
This was a posting describing an excellent music video for a Sigur Ros song.
I’m not super in love with the pic, but I like the message. We’re all so worried about going to school, getting good grades, going to the right college, networking, getting a job, buying a house, buying a car, etc. Is that really what you’re searching for though? This isn’t a one size fits all world, and money doesn’t buy happiness, but it does provide peace of mind. Sometimes you need to be spontaneous, sometimes you need to get on that bus, sometimes you need to prove to yourself you’re really living and not just coasting by every day. Here’s the catch, just be responsible and plan.
If you’re not sure what makes you happy, try doing something outside your comfort zone, and if it’s a poor experience, at least you’ve learned that you actually don’t like, instead of I think I don’t like it. For example take careers, you don’t need to be an engineer, an investment banker, a doctor, or any cookie-cutter employee. Maybe you’d love being a teacher or a designer or painter. It might not pay the bills, but that’s not always what’s important. Find out what’s important to you, and live through your priorities, don’t be afraid to place your happiness near the top from time to time.
Basically, this is the generic theme setting post to introduce all those interested readers as to what the DKD is going to be about. This is another one of your generic writing-based blogs about life, ideas, and the common random filler post. I know this may not sound super thrilling or excite you at all, but stick around, come back, maybe you'll find something interesting, maybe you won't. I guess I can only say a life filled with many disappointments is a sign of too many high expectations. So take this for what you will, most of us are looking for answers, most of us will never find them, but some of us do, and some of us don't need to. Enjoy the road, because the destination isn't always what it's hyped up to be.
