Day 100’s Topic: Priorities.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
As each day, as each week, as each month passes … I guess I do wonder about my own priorities as a person. I’ve had a lot of bumps in the road during this personal journey, with lots of stumbling around until I finally found a course of action that I can salvage some sort of happiness in the meantime.

There are times I wish I could just sit down and sort out what kind of priorities I really want out of life at this very moment.

Should I:

Buy a car?

Raise a pet cat?

Buy this?

Start that venture?

There are so many things to make your head spin when you really think about it.

The frustration, at least for me, derives a lot from feeling somewhat “forced” to survive over just pursuing my dreams. But at the same time, life isn’t all that bad, either.

I enjoy my job. I can take care of myself to a decent degree. I finally have all the independence I could have asked for, which was something surely lacking for someone like me who had to live with the folks at home for a while.

And yet, here I am. I find myself pondering. I just wonder about what I should really be putting all of my attention toward in the near future. I wish I could just clone myself and accomplish a million things at once, but that’s just not gonna happen, now is it?

Day 95’s Topic: Not quite alone in tough times.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
Looking back a few years, I guess I can admit I was pretty much one step away from being hospitalized. I doubt my family would have let it happen, but I was in a pretty bad spot upstairs.

At the very least, I think I should have technically been placed in some kind of care. What I got instead was a lot of mental meandering for quite awhile. I was too darn embarrassed to seek help, let alone be brave enough to admit I had problems. It was a paradox of sorts.

But believe me, and I do mean this, I had my share of problems at the time.

My family was basically very hush-hush about my situation. I didn’t really like others knowing what I was up to. I am sure the neighbors probably wondered, but we all have our respective issues and personal dilemmas to deal with, right?

Everyday NhanSense – Day 92

Day 92’s Topic: Slow and steady.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
There are certainly days I think I am moving “too slow” in life, like I am falling way behind in some race we all are supposed to be aware of, for some reason. I have former friends and peers who have already landed their big-time careers, started a family, moved to exciting cities to live in and so forth.

But then again, this was a huge mistake I had to come to grips with many years ago, as a wise friend once pointed out to me – it doesn’t matter about them because you have to live your own life.

And this is the correct way to perceive this kind of stuff. After all, we all advance through life at different paces because we are all in fact vary from person-to-person. In strengths, in weaknesses, in ambitions … etc.

Because there is in fact so much diversity among individuals, why do we try to compare ourselves so much like we are anything but apples and oranges, respectively, to one another?

One person has what it takes to be a great scientist. Another person isn’t that great at science, but is an excellent artist in their own right. There could be literally endless comparisons, but we all somehow want to think of one another as “the same” when we totally are not.

Ultimately, when I finally came to realize that my own destiny, my own divine plan laid out by God himself, was certainly not going to pan out the way I had envisioned, I found some sense of closure. I will admit it did really suck at first. Heck, it almost destroyed me. But the amount of lessons I learned as a result of everything, and I am still learning by the way, have all been valuable in so many ways.

Day 90’s Topic: Chilling out.
——————————————————————————————————————————————–
At my core, I guess it’s safe to say I have always been a bit of a laid-back person in all kinds of regards.

As a child in particular, if I had to choose between going outside and exploring or taking it easy at home, more often than not I would choose the latter. Whether I was being a couch potato or I just wanted to play video games, I was a kid who liked the comforts of being at home in my own zone.

And over the years, as I got older, part of me never really shook off some of these “lazy” habits. Even in college, I found myself often taking it easy inside my room in the dormitory, only desiring to leave the place for class, food and when I felt like actually getting some fresh air.

But don’t get me wrong. There are definitely moments where I feel like I am not enjoying everything life has to offer while being like this. I am completely aware I miss out on so much.
