This may be an extremely short post because it is reminiscent of Neil Gaiman’s “Make Good Art” speech. I am nowhere near as eloquent as Neil nor is my message as lofty. However its repetitious nature puts them in a similar category. Your life directive is simple. Figure crap out! That’s what you’re supposed to do every day from your birth until your death!
All of these large humans are making noises with their mouths that seem to mean something – Figure that crap out!
Laying on the floor and want to get from here to there – Figure crap out!
There’s all of these symbols in these books that other people are able to decipher. – Figure crap out!
Started getting unsettling feelings when this particular person is near. – Figure crap out!
Just got punched in the face figuratively or literally. – Figure crap out!
The plan for the next 20 years just got ruined. – Figure crap out!
The crap is not going to stop coming! Sorry if that word is offensive to someone reading this but that’s another thing for you to figure out. Problems, challenges, opportunities, moments, obstacles, etc. Whatever label works for you does not matter! The thing that does matter is your disposition toward the things that come your way. If you constantly lament everything that comes down the pike, then you are bound to dislike this journey. Plenty of people with all of the reasons in the world to enjoy life have checked out of their existence because they could not see the positives of their directive.
It’s not always going to be easy but now you know what to do every day!
