Today I decided something important. Yeah, yeah, yeah - by now you're used to me deciding important things on a monthly (even daily) basis. But that doesn't diminish their importance. The truth is, I have a lot of important decisions to make.
Well, I'm not going to be afraid to make them any longer. This is the year that I finally sack up.
Yeah, I know, that's a physical/anatomical impossibility. So, for the purposes of this purposelessness, think of it theoretically. I am going to get ballsy for once in my life. Or, better yet, for life. I'm going to do everything I ever wanted to do,be everyone I wanted to be, but was too scared or intimidated or uneducated or daunted or lazy to try. And we're not just talking about doing a half Ironman and applying to doctoral programs.
This includes but is not limited to: skydiving, sailing, deep sea fishing, traveling or even moving halfway across the world - alone, if need be -keeping my mouth shut when I am tempted to speak, being more decisive, speaking up for myself when I am tempted to let people bully me, going to more sporting events, going to more concerts, staying up later, training harder, volunteering more, getting up earlier, doing nothing more often, and not being so g'd nice all the f*%$ time. I'm going to ask for what I need, and I'm going to get it, dammit. I'm going to live dangerously every day. (Well . . . maybe I draw the line at attempting human Frogger on I-4.)
The sack-up has officially begun.
It's never to late to be the person you've always wanted to be. What have you done today to live dangerously?
