I had a bad day at work. It was poo and I left frustrated. I got home and stewed about it. After a while I started to think straight. I remembered all the stuff that I’ve learnt over the last few years. I remembered that although I have had a bad day I need to remember to breathe. In the grand scheme of things, the negative thoughts I held about the day were all in my head. They weren’t real problems. The day felt awful but in actual fact, it didn’t have any weight to my life. I felt fed up and if I thought about it, it didn’t really matter.
I dunno. It’s not perhaps the best attitude to take but it helped me deal with it all. I’m alive, people were annoying but I’m still here. There’s no point fretting or worrying about it now.
Every day I look at Facebook and I see a lot of posts from people who are seeking attention of others and it made me think “what would their grandchildren think about those posts?”
Obviously I don’t think that in the years to come, our descendants will scroll through the thousands of posts that we’ve posted on social networks but what if they did? What would they think of all those perhaps inappropriate things that have been posted by their grandparents?
It’s weird to think that we are leaving a digital legacy behind us with every little thing that we post. What would they think of all those passive aggressive posts aimed at people you probably won’t remember?
I dunno, it’s an odd thing really because we have no way of knowing how this will pan out, but it’s interesting to ponder upon.
I don’t know if this is good advice to people or not but from my personal experience it’s held me in good stead.
There have been times in my life when I’ve just wanted to give up and run away and I used to do it. As I’ve gotten older I’ve found that I shouldn’t run away from stuff, in fact it’s been better that I’ve put myself through whatever shitty situation I’ve been in.
It is tough though, when you feel stressed and anxious it’s hard to think straight. You feel as though your whole world is imploding around you and there’s nothing that you can do about it. As much as I hate to say it “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. By sticking with whatever situation might be crappy (be it work or whatever), we’ll learn that we are stronger than we thought we were.
As I said at the beginning of this post, this might not be good advice for everybody. Sometimes sticking around can make matters worse. In situations when you’re unsure, weigh up the pros and the cons of sticking it out.
I feel a bit philosophical today. I am having a nice relaxing day off and I’m just doing things here and there and I feel good.
I’ve been doing a few chores around the house and tidying up. There is a saying that goes “Tidy house, tidy mind” and I suppose that is true. I feel a lot better having given the house a quick spruce up. The washing up is all done and I cannot wait for the house to look tidy again.
The funny thing is though is that it’s not taken me long to do it. I’d have to say maybe an hour, maybe a bit more but other than that, it’s not taken much. Yes it’s my day off and I probably would have preferred to have just sat around all day playing Minecraft and watching TV but instead I’ve spent a little bit of that time doing stuff around the house. Life isn’t all about leisure.
What I find interesting is that I have realised that although I have a full time job now, I am still able to find the time to do the stuff that I enjoy. I thought the days of me sitting around doing nothing were gone but today has proved that wrong.
I dunno what I’m writing today. I just felt like blogging. I’m not going to bother to read this back before I hit publish.
I’ve started to feel like my old self again. I’m making time to do the things I enjoy.
