tumbling tumbling

the other day i read a book called the fuck up by arthur narsesian. it’s about a slacker whose life goes down the drains only to start looking up in the most fucked up way possible… and then, just when he seems to be about to achieve happiness…. everything crumbles and starts to fall apart and he rushes down past even the lowest of lows that he had ever experienced before.

it touched me somehow. it makes me realize that at any point things can drop even lower than i could ever imagine. it confuses me, too.

should i appreciate life knowing that what is good is now? or despair, knowing that the worst is yet to come?

yes, trials and tribulations are sure to come in your near future, dear, but Buddha says EXPECT them, but dont DWELL on them, and when they come, roll with the punches, learn from them and become a stronger person for it. Trust me, it’s already happened to me several times.

I’ve always found that simple self-delusion works best… yes, the worst is yet to come, no you dont have to think about it.

generally, thoughts of dancing monkeys tend to make me happy, even in the face of the impending doom that is the future.

to fear or to be scared all the time will only keep you from doing your best.

In all of us is the ability to achieve good or evil, it is all about karma. There is no all-consuming experience. It is a chain or a cycle in which everything is renewed. What I guess I am tring to say is bad times last as long as you want them to. Some of the time people sabotage happiness so they have the feeling of control over how much something has affected them. I think that people tend to protect themselfs and in the end it has a destructive effect. Life is a feather on the wind. You never know where it will take you.

Kim i think I’ve got a simple and not so mystic solution to your common thought. Thinking about a problem doesnt do anything but thinking positively about a problem makes it seem better. Really you have to cherish every little good thing that comes in life. Dwell on the kind words. And wether or not you think of the bad things doesnt matter as long as your doing your best you wont have any regrets cause theres nothing more you could do. To put it simple Live off of lifes "PRESENTS".

there’s something that turns me off about mtv books…

but the perks of being a wallflower is really good, too.

No wise comments for your blogged question, but nice layout, the layered look is neat.

Do not look at tomorrow with despair. As life goes on, I learn more about myself and what makes me happy and I find it is easier to be happy. With improved knowledge of self life progressively improves.
