50 Questions Day 3

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind

            3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

For todays question you guys are just going to have to bear with me while I try and figure it out. I think I am just going to try free typing and see what comes out. Let me know what you think.

      To answer the question I think I would say that the biggest reason that we do things that we don't like is FEAR.  Plain and simple. Think about it. For those people that hate their jobs what is the number one thing that they would say that hate. Not the economy. Not the rising gas prices. No they would say their jobs. Then you have to ask yourself why do they keep going to work instead of finding a new job. FEAR. Someone who hates their job would tell you one of a few things as to why they don't get another job like, there are just no jobs right now, or how do I know that someone else is just not going to lay me off 6 months down the road, and so on and so on. Here is what I say to that logic. 2 years ago I decided to change jobs. Thats right, right in the middle of a recession. The guys that were in my training class were all talking about how long they had been out of work, i.e. 6 months, a year. When they came to me I told them that I had only just quit my old job 4 days prior. So that leads me to believe that there are jobs out there and if you have two brain cells to rub together and any amount of will power you can find something you like if not love even in todays job market.

Now for the part about not doing things that we love, the only reason that I can think of off the top of my head is that we are just being lazy. Take me for example. Before I moved to where I am now I used to throw darts at least 4 nights a week and loved every minute of it. I would play in leagues and in money matches. But since I have moved I have probably played darts 2 or 3 times and I have been here for 4 years. Part of the reason has to do with my work schedule because there are some nights that I just don't get home until really late anyways. But I think the big reason is that I have just become lazy. My favorite thing to do now is come home sit down and watch television. 

In conclusion, if you don't like something that you are doing then lets just go with the easy answer, STOP DOING IT STUPID. and if you are not doing something that you like then, GET OFF YOU BUTT AND GO DO IT. Lets just see if I can take my own advice.

Have you a great night or day depending when you are reading this and I will see you tomorrow.

I'm so lost!! but to answer your question, we do things we dont want to do bc that's what adults are expected to do- so we lose our inner children who's primarily purpose is to have fun and enjoy life. Life is about a balance between the 2-the Fun and the boring!!
