My Fresh Start: DAY 1

Summer has finally come now and I am out for a fresh new start for 2006. Well, for most people, a fresh new start would start at the beginning of the year. For me, that would be a big NO.

Tonight, I attended a PREVIEW and there were a lot of inspirational talks there. Talks about making it big. In fact, I've been attending it and meeting people within it for about a month or so now. And it is only now that I realize that my true calling in life is to follow this equation:

EAT + SLEEP + WORK A LITTLE + SLEEP + EAT MORE = HAPPY LIFE

In other words, I want to be a BUM. Yes, I realized that by the time I'm in my thirties, I don't want to work anymore. I don't want to work for someone who doesn't give a rat's ass about me. Although I do have a good employer now, and I work with really good people, but in the end, all those things might go away... All those things my be short-lived... And I don't want to be stuck in the middle of that, and end up hating what I do...

The thing is POSITIVE THINKING. I've always been a pessimist. Maybe that's because of the many things in life, in my life to be exact, that hasn't gone the way I wanted it to be. For years, I've been trying to deny this, but in the end, it just hit me right smack in the face. I AM NEGATIVE. The reason why not so many good things has happened into my life...

Yes, I complain. In fact, I complain a lot. But I still do the thing that makes me complain. As they say you can't bite the hand that feeds you... That's what has gotten me in trouble in the first place. Not all people understand people who complain and still do their jobs right... They think that you don't like your job... THAT'S NOT TRUE!

Can they actually say that you hate your job, when for example, you don't want to get up from your bed on a cold, rainy day? Of course not. You don't hate your job, but you just want to sleep a bit more right? Those are not the same things...

Thing is, this fresh start has given me options. Positive options to be able to most, if not all of the things, I want to do in my life. I want to be a bum when I'm thirty. By that time, I might have finished my doctorate degree in Special Ed, but then I still want to be a bum... I might have a school for the Deaf, but I'm not actually charging them anything for their education now, right? Wouldn't that be great?!?

That I might be self-employed, but I can go to MY school anytime without even thinking that I might lose it because I'm not there! *Chuckles* I am amused by what I am thinking now... Before I always thought, that being a workaholic was to be the key in order for me to be at the peak of my life and my lifestyle... I guess I was wrong... It may or may not be the case... I can be a DOCTOR IN HOW TO GET A BUM LIFESTYLE... ^_^

We'll have to see. But I'm very positive about it! This marks the day of my true DAY 1 in this new exodus to my being BUM on my 30th birthday... BUMNESS, HERE I COME!!!

i read somewhere that to be happy means to be able to satisfy your personal heirarchy of needs. beginning with the basics food shelter to self fulfillment relationships and maybe peace of mind.

hmmm...deep thoughts..and a little bit scary. oh, i shouldn't have used that word. that would only make you want to do it more. your plan to be a bum when you're 30, i mean.

anyways, keep me posted on this grand plan of yours. let's see how it's going to unfold.

by the way, i agree with you when you said complaining doesn't mean you hate your job. sometimes, we just complain so it would look like a big deal when we actually do the job. but... just minimize the complaining. you'll get some plus points from the boss.he,he,he...

when there's a valid reason to complain though, you should do it.
