Distractions In Life


" I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there. Perhaps,
it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live, and could
not spare any time for that one."
-Henry David Thoreau

Many times I would find myself in a state of mass confusion. It was as
if I had no perception of where I would go with my life. I was trapped in a
realm of things which were unfamiliar to me. When I tried to experience these
new adventures I ended up back where I started in a slow state of death and
decay. New ideas and thoughts seemed impossible for me to grasp. It seemed that
anything that was new to me was too much of a hassle. How could I move on in a
positive manner in this state. All that I wanted to do was the same old thing
over and over like a broken record repeating itself over and over until it wore
itself out. I finally, wore myself out. I started to feel as if I was the worn
out record player and that I would be dropped into the trash when I stopped
working the way I was supposed to.
After a short while I found some inspiration from an unknown point. I
had realized I would not succeed in this battle called life without serious work.
The only one who could help me was me. I knew that I wasn\'t meant to do the
exact same thing for the rest of my life. I had to escape this bottomless pit
and move on to the next adventure. "I had several more lives to live and could
not spare any time for that one."
I moved on to another life. My "new" life was very hard to get used to,
but was well worth the trouble. I began trying new things and actually enjoyed
it. I realize now that I only have a short time in my life and I have to make a
difference here, before I move on to the higher place. I need to speak my views
and express my feelings. I need to have fun and work for what I believe in at
the same time. Soon I will move on once again to a whole new realm of adventure
and a whole new set of standards. These progressions are what are keeping me
alive and will follow with me long after I have passed on.
