This is a new series I’d like to start, maybe every Friday set aside some time to share my opinion on some sort of topic. Whether it’s life, something in the video game or movie world, or it might be just something that was on my mind. Sort of like the regular Way Earl Sees It, but more structured. In this time of giving, I feel as if I should give you, the viewer, the reader, the subscriber, a gift. Not a physical gift, an Ipod, a PS3, or some blu-ray player that I’m hoping will never really catch (I don’t wanna spend $30 on a movie I’ll only watch once), however a mental lesson, a life lesson if you will. I’d like to share my thoughts, help you and even myself with coping and making it through life. If you don’t wanna read this, think I’m preaching to you, I’m not. I don’t preach, preachers do, and I’m not a preacher. I’d rather you listen to a preacher than me.
I hear so many people complain about life. I hear people whine about the position they’re in, the people they’re around, complaining about how they don’t like their life. It’s one thing to state that you’re unhappy on something, that you don’t like something in your life, that something really burns you. That’s life. If you’re out in the world today and you don’t already know it, life ain’t fair. Life can have you feeling like you’re on the edge of the world sometimes, but other times it’s gonna roundhouse kick you, then keep kicking you in the gut over and over until you get up, or you can just choose to stay there and keep gettin’ kicked. It’s another thing to constantly whine, constantly brood over those things. It’s unhealthy to let that fester in your gut. If you know what I’m talking about you know it’s no fun to bearound someone that just complains all the time and is just so pessimistic. It’s not just lack of optimism, it’s also laziness. If you’ve got something in your life that you don’t like, change it. Don’t just sit there, whine about it and expect it to get better on it’s own, you get up and you fix it yourself. I understand you can’t apply this standard to all things-bad family, etc., but that doesn’t mean you can’t change your attitude, or even other people’s. It’s not always your fault either. Sometimes you might just have to pray and help others to get better understanding. Sometimes you might just have to get over things, but long story short-There’s never any situation that you can’t get out of. When life kicks you in the groin of couple of times and throws you to the ground, when you get dealt a bad hand, it’s up to you to do a little praying, get up, dust yourself off, and fix your life. If you’re lucky, you might just have some people around you to help you. You can’t change the past, but you sure can change your future, I learned that from Heroes. Whenever life starts to beat you up, you can’t let it get to you, you can’t let that keep you laying on the ground. I know I’ve said it 15 times, but it’s your job to either A) Change your attitude B) Change Others’ Attitudes C) Get Over It and Adapt a Little or D) Change your life yourself. Life’s what you want it to be. (I am so glad I didn’t say Life’s what you make it to end this one….)
