Days without pills: 2 (I'm so fecked!)
Hours slept : An "off and on" 8!!
They say that anything you get easily in life isn't worth having. I say that anything that came easily in life is a blessing, but can too easily be taken for granted.
I think we can all remember a time when everything was so much simpler, no stress, no worries ...yeah and nothing of real value. Yes, childhood was a sweet time, mainly because it involved eating a lot of sweets AND the power rangers were fucking awesome but there's NO WAY you can say it's better than now.
Think off all the seriously bad shit that has happened to you, say, since the start of high school. It sucks, exclusion, bullying, sickness, death, unemployment, homelessness, heartbreak. I'm sure we can can all tick a few of those boxes.
Made us better though, right?
Life keeps tripping us, and we keep getting up. Everytime we do we're smarter, funner, stronger, generally more bad-ass than we were before. Just like being sandwiched between Samuel.L.Jackson and Chuck Norris, and their awesomeness rubbed off on us.
So if you're down in the dumps, the weight of the world is upon you and you can't get over what you've lost. Deep down, no matter how much you don't wan't to admit it, you're going to be much, much better sooner or later.
"The pursuit of pleasure ultimately involves the suffering of pain"
I'll keep builing on this idea in the next couple of posts.
Will I be writing an excited, soppy, loved-up Valentine's post? If I can make it funny...
