Going with the Flow

February 11, 2010 4 comments

This is something I tend to do. I think my problem is that I’m too easy-going sometimes. I just go with the flow and accept whatever life has to offer, then make the best of it and move on. That’s why I very seldom get angry.

Whatever happens, happens.

So how is this a bad thing?
What if going with the flow doesn’t take you where you want to go? Then what’s the point? I’ve always thought that you can’t control the situation, but you can control how you react to them. This is true, especially if the event already happened. But if we’re talking about the future, then it’s a different case. While you can’t always control how the situation will be exactly, you can definitely still try to make it happen. That’s where my problem is. I’m taking the attitude I have after an event happened, and applying it to the time before the desired event happens. In the end, I just end up working around what would otherwise be the desired outcome.

Point is: know what you want and strive for it. Don’t settle for less.
Time to fight the flow!

Take Two… Action!

This is actually my second attempt in creating a blog. I didn’t follow through with the first one. I’m not one to routinely talk about my days and spill my guts to the world for sympathy or fabricate my content to portray a sugar-coated life. I just wasn’t into the “daily musings of a typical juvenile undergoing post-pubescent depression” type of thing. In any case, I’d contract an acute case of “who-the-@#$%-caresosis” whenever I came across blogs like that. As I’ve said in my earlier blog, I just find it superficial telling my thoughts, activities, wants, etc all the time as if there’s an imaginary audience to my online reality show.

But perhaps that outlook on blogging is too negative. I understand not all blogs are like that. In fact, I’ve come to respect a handful of bloggers for their content. So I’ll set aside my old views on blogging and give it another try. Everyone has their own reasons for blogging. I actually came across some of my old writing from years ago, so I was able to see exactly what went through my mind at that time. You know you’ve grown up here *points to brain* when you can look back at what seemed to be troubling issues, and see them as funny and minuscule now. But those were the building blocks that made me who I am today, and I think that’s worthy of note. So I’ll be doing that (again) here, now.
