i think, therefore i write

it’s been a while since i have gotten off to this drawing board.  honestly, i have been intermittently getting into a lot of ideas that i wanted to write; but i end up not doing so because of new endeavors that i have been indulging in… and some unfinished business that i needed to commit to.

sometimes it takes a while for us to learn a very important lesson in life; an oxymoron with a hard nutshell like me can be a perfect example (at times):

1. it took me over a year to firmly lock and secure the foot brake pedal while parking on an uphill or downhill… the chugging gear sounds eventually went away after thoroughly remembering and following a friend’s advice.

2. my mom passed on to me the so-called new york subway slogan: “if you see something, say something.”  i say something because i’m just friendly, but people take it the wrong way.  i can be a fool for opening my mouth sometimes, but i found out that not saying anything at all is what keeps other people’s buttons from getting pushed…

but i keep saying something anyway… for friendly purposes

3. i have always assimilated that we cannot please everyone, but like the uber-personable, sales mentality that i have, i still take the time to accommodate apparent dead-ends and loose cannons.  while i forgive in the end, i always find out that it has always been a numbers game.  you win some, you lose some.  the winning prize has always been way worth it though.

4.  i realized that once i push myself further away from my comfort zone, the more adversities i encounter, and the more ostensible opposition i get.  it only takes one victory of an attained success, however, and about a year or two to totally forget these social obstacles.  i hardly remember the ones i had over five years ago.

5. when something is presented to you, take it.  it is only me who can decide what i want in life, not the others who at times really mean well no matter how much authority they have.  we all have different principles, but i cannot end up carrying someone else’s burden and indifference because we cannot see eye-to-eye.  i give and leave to ceasar his own problems and the ones i own, mine.  now, i am honestly glad i took the road less traveled.  it will finally make a big difference… to society and the entire world.

6. to love is to let go; and not expecting anything in return.  done it a lot of times, and this time it has come back to me a hundred-fold… so i am not saying “no” to someone if i instantly make that connection with her.  it is similar to the universe leaving us a hundred dollar bill on the sidewalk and we prefer not to use it.  that is utterly plainly saying no to a blessing.  i optimize mine to give back, not to preach. 

that’s it for now.  i have somehow hard-coded these social ethics into my system.  i keep learning though…. lots of good stuff happening.  till the next entry…

    been fine. working and saving money. how you been? i wish i could say i shared the same outlook as you. i even envy your desire to act upon impulses such as those. people like myself are polar opposites. we have to work hard to get the desire to talk to other people, for reasons like those i just stated in the post you commented on among others.sorry, its life questioning time i suppose. if only life could be easy enough, like for those people that are too stupid/careless to give a crap about anything but their own happiness. this is why they say ignorance is bliss. and sometimes it sucks to be slapped with an innate drive to be otherwise.
