On Ambition

May 5, 2010

Have you noticed how so many of us, so often feel ‘low’? Maybe it’s just us bipolar ones but as soon as we are a notch below “the-ideal-happy” we become aware of the sink. And we dream of going up a rung again. It makes us realize that something is not right with us. That something ought to be done about it. “Time to distract yourself” we tell ourselves and start watching some inane sitcom or call up some small-talk making person we otherwise would never call. Why?

It’s like hotness. 10/10 hotness is the ideal. Yes, every time I look in the mirror I’m very aware of the fact that I’m about 2.74 (us geeks, we love random decimals, especially if they rhyme with 3.14) on that scale but I don’t start doing sit-ups each time I’m reminded of it? Do you go for a run each time your elbow digs into that extra tyre? Why don’t you? Too much work? And happiness is just a ‘state of mind’ so it can be reached instantly? Minds are *so* much easier to work on than bodies.

You wish.

I say D-I-T-C-H.

Strive for cool. Cool is when you’re trying for nothing.

Take an hour out for a run.

Take a couple of hours out on things you love (has to be double than exercise please)

Live with the tyres and sunken feelings at other times.

And if you have more than three hours to spare to really work on your mind and body. Hell, You’re Sorted.

      It’s not entirely a coincident that I refer to myself as bipolar then? The first step in practice is to write things down. And now you have become testimony to the promise. Will make it harder to break. What with reputation at stake and all.

    ” “Time to distract yourself” we tell ourselves and start watching some inane sitcom or call up some small-talk making person we otherwise would never call. ”

    I must be looking into a mirror.

      And to that I can only mirror you and say that insecurities must be the greatest equalizers, yes?
