There is nothing quite like the feeling you get after a hard workout. People think I love lifting and running. And I don't. I hate it for the most part. It grueling, it's hard, its difficult, and most times I'm dreading the process. But if you can find the spirit to go and give it your all and be present There's not a feeling like it. It's not suppose to be fun most times. Its suppose to be uncomfortable. As I'm lacing up my sneakers most days, i'm dreading going out there. I don't want to touch the road, my feeble brain is just like "stay home". But that isn't where growth comes. Growth is found in those moments you don't want to push yourself yet still do. It's the times you don't want to go that will reward you the most. You will unlock things about yourself that you never knew you could accomplish. All you have to do is go. You're not going to love it and most people don't. They just love what it brings them after.
You're not your job. You're not your khakis. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. And I am Jack. I am Jack's total lack of surprise. I am Jack's smirking revenge. I am Jack's wasted life. For six months I couldn't sleep. With insomnia, nothing's real. Everything is far away. It is all a copy of a copy of a copy. I am Jack's cold sweat. I am Jack's inflamed sense of rejection. Those are quotes from one of my favorite books/movies by Chuck Palahniuk. Aside from writing 'Fight Club' he has also made grade books like Choke and Snuff. He has some pretty insightful view on the words and as you can see, some very quotable material.
Things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That's the only lasting thing you can create. Let your past decide your future. Or we can decide for ourselves. Maybe its our job to invent something better. I don't know about you guys but I've never been complacent with little things. A lot of people I know live for the weekends. They live for the small events. They live for getting shit faced, they live for small talk and small friends. Not that there's anything wrong with (some) of those things. Its just not me. I've traveled to many third world countries. At first, my travel was only intended as a vessel for me getting shit faced and having a good time. I was young and not as knowledgable about the world I suppose. But my visits to these places made me take a hard look at the disparity in the two worlds we live in comparitively. Ever sense then, i've really stepped back and began to learn more about the problems in the world, and I'm passionate about joining organizations and learning about how I can solve some of these issues and crises other kids and countries experience.
