One of the worst things that can happen to you is having your time wasted.
Time wasted on “potential things” when you could have been pursuing something solid. Time wasted clinging onto a faulty relationship wishing for that love to be returned. Time wasted waiting on a call back for a job when you could be sending out your CV to many others. You know you function better as a creative in an organized space yet you continue to procrastinate and wallow in an untidy room talking about “writer’s block” or “creative block“. No! Clean your room/office etc and get to work.
I can go on and on but I won’t. The point is, don’t allow people to waste your time and don’t allow yourself to waste your time either. Yes I said don’t allow yourself. Too often we find our self blaming other people when a lot of times we are the cause of our very own demises. Stop, take a breath, take accountability and focus on what you can improve and make the situation better.
I’m no expert but here are some things I keep in mind when I’m about to go after something:
- Always have a plan – Without a plan you’re going in blindly.
- Always have a plan B – Always have a backup in case your initial plan falls apart.
- Remember failure is an opportunity to know what to do and what not to do the next time around.
- Success is a journey not a destination – there is always room to grow and improve.
- Do what you’re passionate about and not what someone else is into – only you can live your life and wasting your life trying to be someone else will only leave you with regrets.
- In everything you do, weigh the pros and cons.
- Your stumbles don’t define you, your willingness does. Don’t give up.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post, thank you for sticking around for so long I appreciate everyone of you, take care and God bless. 🙂
Little one, your life has just begun
And though the world can be cold
Let your light warm the life of someone
Don’t let your heart be hardened by what may you see
For there’s someone out there looking for the good in somebody
We all want love and we all need a helping hand
You may think you can do it all on your own
But I promise you that’s the biggest self deception of man
Let me kiss the scar you always want to hide
Hold you and calm the pain you feel inside
Reassure you whenever you feel insecure
Prove to you my intentions are genuine and pure
Let us stay up all night talking about places we want to go
Cuddle up on the couch on rainy days and watch our favourite show
Have cook offs and laugh at the mess we’ve made everywhere
Zone out in the bath about the greatness we share
Us camping while I pretend not to fuss at the bugs
You smiling and appreciating I’m doing this for love
Our road trips always filled with laughs and adventure
Taking life one day at a time creating our happily ever after
You look at me with want
You gasp when I touch you
Like I’m the air to your lungs
Filled up with so much passion
Your eyes…. They speak to me
When your lips slowly part ways
But your voice refuse to greet me
What does my presence do to you?
I’d like to hear.. And is it just with me?
Or do you get like this with everybody?
Sorry I didn’t mean to kill the mood I’m just asking
I just want to know if I’m getting on for a spin
Or if it’s gonna be something with potential of lasting
Do you see me in your future
Or would I be left in your past?
Would we crumble at the sight of hardship
Or would we make this love thing last?
Would people’s opinion matter
Or would we focus on our own?
Would we rethink everything
Or would we make this house a home?
The jar is overflowing
I know I’m undeserving
But I’m here and I’m still wanting
When the world gets cold
the words I write will keep me warm
and if one day you decide that you’ll be gone
they would bring me comfort until I can move on
