just take a magic pill


If you don't like your life, just take a magic pill. Have some magic surgery. Yeah,that will fix everything all in one swoop.
Don't worry about doing anything differently. Don't change any of the things that caused the condition for you. Nah,just continue to live your life the way you want with total disregard for consequences. If your fat, don't diet and exercise, just have surgery. Can't get your dick up? Hey, viagra... No hair? Don't worry you can buy that too.
What about a drinking problem? Hey, here's a pill we can give you to make you sick everytime you drink. "Ok buddy, thanks man... I need that! Hey wait a minute, I already get sick every time I drink and I still drink! DUH!" Still keep on drinking though.
It seems that people are more worried about who is being voted off American Idol and Survivor and not concerned enough about who is being elected to manage their home town.
Then they sit around and complain about the state of everything.
If you want things to change in your life then you need to be the dynamic that causes the change. Stop bitching about the state you're in and begin to change things. The hardest things to change are the ones that need to be changed the most. Get after it, do something that will make you feel good about being you. Stop waiting for the world to come knocking and fix your problems. Even if someone or something does come along, are you going to be able to appreciate what was done if you haven't taken any effort to get there yourself? How much appreciation do you have for the things that were just handed to you on a platter? I know that I don't have much.
I have more appreciation for a $75 lawn mower that I bought and used for 2 years and then sold for $50. Why? Because I took good enough care of a piece of shit lawn mower that I was able to sell it for 2/3 of it's original price. This from a guy who lived in his car for 2 months.
Self appreciation comes from appreciation myself. They say "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Well, in my mind, I'm an "other." I'm going to take care of myself just like I was a stranger. That way I can demand the same amount of respect from the people that come into my life. And maybe, I won't let myself get pulled into a relationship or situation that I don't want to be pulled into. Just a few thoughts. Hope everyone has a good day.

Wow, you too? I thought he was just talking about me. Just remember, abutoo, everybody suffers the consequences of their actions. What may look like an easy road to you may have been hell for them.

%90 of the time, if it's really worthwhile, it's not easy. It only becomes easy with time. Starting off on a new road is always difficult. I'm just saying, that sometimes, you have to start down that road.

Sometimes, it's easier said than done. We, (a general WE), usually have to hit rock bottom before we can pull ourselves up by the bootstraps. Those that want to, that is. I know, I've been there...

Good post, thanks

I've had my hard times. There was once when the neighbors cat killed a squirrel. If nobody had been looking the squirrel would've went in the pot. If the cat had put up too much of a fight, it would've been in the pot too.

Always be proud of what you've done. It sounds like you've done good. I said good not well. It's intentional.

I like you and wish you whatever you define as success in life

I'm a drinking man still drinking. Could you tell?

It doesn't change the sentiment. Good luck!!
