I got home this morning and before I got inside the house I saw this snail, this lone, slimy, brown-like creature crawling on our wall in the midst of the rain and sun fighting on who’s turn to take over the city’s weather.
So, what’s up with the snail you say? well, it’s not just about the snail.
Have you ever felt the urge to breakthrough and shine just like your favorite celebrities, heroes, artists and all the other strangers you’ve known but not know personally? I bet you did. If not, stop being an ass and admit it. Just kidding. Seriously. Admit it. Admiration is one way to want something that’s not or not yet entirely yours. Think about it. I’M NOT SAYING I WANT TO BE A SNAIL NOW.
As I read and re-read the ending of “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green, Thoughts kept flashing in my mind, thoughts that I’ve always asked God or this “Planet” why?
I’ve learned that it may not be the universe who’s looking or asking for attention but it’s us, we want the world to know we exist, as said in the book aforementioned. But hey, I’m not here to talk about the book. I just want to talk about how we, people, crave for happiness but neglect it ironically.
I’ve always dreamed in being a graphic artist, the one who creates advertisements all around the internet and out, I wanted to make beauty and art out of advertisements. Guess what? I have attained that dream. Right after I graduated I got hired in a company who creates ads! Kinda cool huh? Yeah, well… for the first two months I guess… I’m now on my third month and I could barely find any fulfillment in what I’m doing anymore. Was it cause I have limited freedom? Am I impatient? confused? what? I ask myself, why don’t I just quit? Then I asked again, Am I a quitter? If not then suck it all in! You wanted this.
There it was, lack of happiness. You strive and achieve but you fall. Why? I believe it’s because of all the negativity you attract in your life, there may be unwanted events happening in your life, I call them “strong, bad, uninvited forces”, which may occur from time to time depending on how you shield yourself from them. Yes I used the word “shield”, unbelievable right? Anyway, my point is, as said in star wars, “Use the Force”. Scientific, Religion, whichever method you prefer. There’s a whole lot of energy around you, use it to satisfy your happiness but never for your selfishness. Happiness is selfishness you say? I can attest to that. Happiness is when I looked at that snail and said “magnificent!”, now is that so selfish?
Simple things can bring you happiness, never forget that. Don’t ever let anger, pain, stress, envy and all the other negative elements given in this planet take that away from you. Mine got taken, but I’m working to take it back and be bad-ass at it.
If you ever feel sad, deprived etc., look back and see how you’re doing. Get back up, move on and kick some ass! Yes, i like the word “ass” and it makes me feel happy!
P.S. Just like Agustus, in the book “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green, my thoughts may be like stars, they’re scattered. Bear with me :)
