Musings Episode 66: Introspection…

So apparently, this is my 200th post.

WOO.

Life has been very interesting, over the past month or so. In going through a bit of writer’s burnout, though it has disrupted my work flow, it’s also given me time to really just sit back and think on a few things. Think on nothing, but think on everything. That sort of grey area where you have everything and nothing figured out at the same time.

At the moment, I’m more of the latter than the former.

At the moment, I’m more wrapped up in avoiding stress as much as possible and finding everything and anything that’s constructive to keep me in a good mood.

Sometimes it’s a bit of a task – but really, times like these are moments when you can actually grade yourself on how well you cope with life.

Eventually, you just get to a point where you’re fucking tired.

Tired of stressing out, tired of focusing on the negative, tired of concerning yourself with solutions…tired of worrying, tired of having highs and lows – just, tired.

I’ve been told before by many I have a way with words – something I pride myself in.

I enjoy helping people find solutions and apparently judging by past experience aren’t too shabby at giving someone a pep talk to make them feel better.

….but what happens when the motivator needs motivation?

What happens when the person who talks everyone else up needs a pep talk themselves?

I’m slowly starting to acknowledge not all the time do I actually take the time to stop and sort my own wandering thoughts out, and understand that can be an unhealthy habit – probably why the writer’s burnout happened in the first place.

It’s been a while since I’ve properly just stopped everything and checked under my own mind’s hood to make sure the engine’s still in check – hence now, neglect has that “check engine” light flashing.

But once it’s all sorted out, everything will be running like new again – a person can go through these moments and think it’s the end of the world, when in fact it really is just a moment that’ll soon pass.

Kind of reminds me of the adage “this too shall pass.”

After a while you realize it – whatever’s going on – a mental block, a situation, an argument, even your own insecurities or thoughts running wild – it all comes to an end.

Eventually, you just get so tired of dwelling you really don’t give a fuck anymore.

Eventually, instead of doing what so many others are expected to do under stress, sometimes the best thing is to just laugh or chuck it in the fuck it bucket and move on.

Why?

Because at that moment, it’s the only thing that makes sense to do.

Be kind to yourself by being kind to your body and your mind – don’t stress. You’ll only make yourself sick – take some time out to really get to know you, and eventually nothing else will matter.

You’ll find yourself not worrying about outcomes or reactions, others opinions or even next week – you’ll learn to filter.

Keep focusing on sorting your own self out, focusing on what you want, and nothing else. Sort yourself out first, and you can help sort out others after.

Take a little time to listen to who matters most – you.

One more thing – I know I’ve been slack on the For The Weekenders posts – bear with me – there’s a pretty awesome one coming your way this Thursday. Promise.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

…..I know ironic title right? Albeit this one being up late, I wanted to share some thoughts about time.

In the past it’s always been stressed how important time is, how time is money and money is time, how time is more than just time but an investment, and so on.

But time is also a sort of one way road – or more accurately string of bridges. What do I mean? Well…read on.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

The reason I say time is a “string” of bridges is due to the fact that every decision or action we take in life is something that takes up time – and once it’s done there’s really no looking back.

This is why you always hear those little classic quotes that encourage you to leave the “what ifs” out of your life, and are constantly reminding you that without change you’ll never grow.

Change is intrinsically linked with time – anything or anyone that changes invests a certain amount of time in doing so – it all takes time and a willingness to do so.

Scars heal over time or are forgotten.

Health is restored (or changes) over time and is improved.

Success happens over time and inevitably changes or improves lifestyle.

Every single thing you do is linked with time.

Each decision you make alters something in the future.

I wouldn’t say there’s no going back, but as far as human intelligence is concerned there’s also no reversal of time – no “turning back the clock.” Or at least humans haven’t figured out how to yet…

Hang on a minute – that last bit sounded really “definite” and realistic – let me clarify.

your time is limited steve jobs quote rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

In other words, there are decisions people make and characters people mold that can always be changed or improved, but as far as undoing certain things the change that was already done will always be there as a memory – or a lesson.

This can range from sticking together with family, changing careers, getting married, or joining a sport.

Even if we undo those said changes, as far as time is concerned they happened and are now imprinted as a memory – some forget, some always remember.

But like an arrow released from the bend of the bow, time is spent the same way – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Like a bridge burnt immediately after you’ve driven over it, there’s no getting it back.

You can rebuild the bridge.

You can reload the bow.

But the original bridge burnt or the first arrow spent can’t be taken back.

This is why throughout my life I’ve always been considerably careful about who I associate with, what actions I take, what memories I make…basically how I invest my time.

Even writing everyday for this blog and the official site is an investment of time that’s made.

when i give you my time i'm giving you a portion of my life that i will never get back so don't waste it rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

…it’s quite healthy to do so, being careful is. Not pessimistic – just careful. Don’t misinterpret what you just read as choosing to live in a sheltered environment – but the same way eating healthy and exercising lead to a great looking, healthy body, is the same way being in healthy environments, associating with positive (and like minded) people who have your best interest at heart, and doing what you really want to do in life, increases your positive yield on time spent.

So just remember, your time is precious – and just like how there are some stores that you can’t get a refund at after spending money, so goes the same with your time…ergo choose how you “spend” it wisely.

Just a little inspiration to kick off your week. 😉

As always…

Stay awesome.

“There is a…

Happy New Year…to Your Success.

there is a wisdom of the head and a wisdom of the heart charles dickens, charles dickens, rego's life, quote wednesdays, wisdom quotes, quotes about the head and the heart, emotion, logic

..and sometimes, one of the hardest decisions is deciding which one to listen to. Charles Dickens had it right.

There are times when you have to toss logic and emotion in the air, and try reaching a middle ground. Sometimes there is no middle ground. No grey area. Learning from mistakes and gaining wisdom all lies in the way things are looked at.

Once you find your own path, the rules and beliefs you apply to your life can become unbreakable, and in turn you’ll seal the way to your own success.

As always…

Stay awesome.
