You can’t wait for opportunity’s.

July 30, 2008

If you spend all your time, waiting for a chance to do something, eventually it will come along. But perhaps, after waiting so long, it is no longer what you wanted. Or maybe you can’t take advantage of the opportunity anymore.

You can sit down and say, “all that I is wait, just for a little while”. But that just isn’t good enough. Some people don’t realize this, they merely sit and wait there entire lives for something which is waiting for them just around the bend.

Instead of sitting down in the road of time and waiting for someone else to walk by, you can go out and try and find your chance. Out in the world there are people to me, goals to achieve, chances to miss, and chances to catch. There are things both good and bad, which will change who you are forever.

But you may never find any of these things which are waiting for you, if you never try.

You can’t think that if you wait, you will be able to do something, weather its a btwist, or sky diving, or asking out that girl(or guy) you always thought looked like a nice person. There are some people who waste there entire lives giving chase to their dreams, and then there are the people who never even try.

Whatever the excuse is you give yourself, it simply isn’t good enough. You might think it is impossible, maybe you think your not ready yet. Maybe you just think its to much work. But that’s all wrong, for whatever reason, and I think everyone has their own, you don’t want to try. For me, well, I’m scared, yep that’s it. Maybe, no matter how hard I try, it won’t be good enough. Somewhere along the way, despite my good natured over confidence, and my eternal overoptimism. I seem to have unknowingly convinced myself that I’m going to fail.

Unfortunately, fear isn’t something that just goes away because you know its there. You just have to ignore it and push on through. Nothing is impossible, we just tell ourselves that it is, because we are scared of what we might otherwise accomplish. Everything you want to do is within your grasp, you just have to get past the thinking it over stage.

This is where a lot of people get stuck, you think about it, you plan, you perfect, and you never actually just give it a try. Want to see the world? well you already have everything you need to do that, start walking! Maybe you want to be the best at something? Not impossible, hard, since your going to have a little competition, but you can do anything you set your mind to.

Maybe you really won’t succeed, maybe your going to fail. Maybe, even though it isn’t impossible, no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t do it. But at least you tried. I may not know a lot of things, but I know one thing for sure, if you never try in the first place, you will never know what its like to succeed….. or fail.



Theres more to life then what you see at first glance.

Well, today at 11:00 PM, thirty minutes ago, i was walking across my carport to the separate room where i have my computer set up after getting myself a snack, and i happened to look upwards and down my drive way, and i saw the stars. On an impulse i decided i wanted a better look at the stars. So, with burger in hand, i walked to the end of my drive way and sat down cross legged, leaned back, and took a moment to enjoy life. I sat out there for a good thirty minutes, hey, the stars are beautiful, have you taken a look lately? At the time I thinking something like “nothing beats sitting at the end of a driveway in the middle of the night eating a veggie burger!” It was quite fun, and it made me think that maybe theres more to life then you think, and maybe you just don’t take the time to look and find it.
