When it’s my turn to take my 2 year old to daycare, we drive by the cemetery.
I point to it, and tell my little Viking, strapped in her baby seat, that we are all going to end up here.
And so we must live the best life we can.
Like the good doctor said,
“don’t die with your music inside you.”
My version to that was, don’t be anyone’s bitch.
But I think I’ll wait until she’s older, like when she’s 3 maybe, before I use that language with her.
Until then, don’t die with your music inside you.
Raise Your Standards.
If you don’t ask much from yourself.
Then you will keep getting what you keep getting.
This guy I know, he wrote that the one thing he clearly remembered that helped him change from being a janitor to a multimillionaire businessman, was that he raised he standards.
He expected more from himself.
So there are things that I used to do, in the spirit of pleasing others.
But now I don’t.
There are people out there who believe they need to be placed in pedestals.
An idea that they have people around them promote. Thinking that we all dance to their fiddle.
Not all of us do.
Don’t allow people to turn you into a person that begs for their approval.
Some people, because you love them, will have you feeling small and use emotional blackmail that will have you crawling on your knees as a price for them to welcome you back in their arms.
Because you are emotionally invested, the indecency alludes you.
But one day, you eyes will be wide opened.
Maybe that day will come when you start raising your standards.
You do something long enough…if you do the right things long enough, then the right things will appear in your life.
It works both ways.
You the wrong things long enough and the wrong things will come up in your life.
Like when you leave something undone, knowing the consciences, but being surprised when they become a reality for you.
You leave shit undone WTF did you expect to happen?
That’s been me lately.
If you mess around with universal laws, you will get burned.
But if you use them to your advantage, then you benefit.
That’s my wish for you this year.
Compliments of the New Year.
And use this universal law to YOUR benefit.
