How do you spell procrastination? Eh… I’ll figure it out tomorrow. Bwahahahahahaha… I slay myself! Today’s song choice is Best Days by Graham Colton (his name makes me crave graham crackers whilst riding a colt… just me? Okay then…) So, in this song, S’mores dude (mmmmm marshmallowy chocolatey grahamy goodness) is talking about not putting things off until tomorrow… because then tomorrow turns into another tomorrow and another until before you know it you’re gumming your food and laughing at Lawrence Welk reruns from the comfort of your Jazzy. I’m the guiltiest of the bunch. Back in the olden days, whenever I’d start a new “die”t and I’d mess said diet up approximately 10 hours later, I’d always say things like… Monday… I’ll start over on Monday (can’t start on the weekend because that would TOTES ruin my whole weekend). Then, Monday would come and it would be, maybe next Sunday around 11ish… after the all-you-can-eat donut buffet. Another reason “die”ts don’t work… there’s never an opportune time to start one… there’s always going to be something coming up that will derail the “die”t. Don’t “die”t, just live life… live it in moderation and don’t wait for the next convenient starting day… there isn’t one.
TANGENT ALERT!! Maybe I should buy like a big flashing bulb for this here blog… every time I start rambling on and on about the wrong topic, I’ll put up the flashing bulb and you can head to the fridge for a nighttime snack… or more like 15 by the time I’ve quit jabbering. STOP THE INSANITY!
So, anyone watching the Celebrity Apprentice… Gary Busey, right? What planet is he on… probably the same one Donald Trump bought his hair from. SEE… There I went again! How was the bologna sandwich?
You want to do something? DO IT! Do it now… don’t wait until it’s too late or you’re too old or you’re too poor or you’re too ill… just do it!! (Nike is totes smart! Yo, Nike… I need me some new tenny runners!) I have certainly not mastered the “living in the now” kind of thinking. I have literally frittered away a good chunk of my life… at least 10 years of my prime 20s… gone… and I have NOTHING to show for it. Not a thing… unless you count 300 plus extra pounds of fat and a permanent butt-shaped indentation on my couch. I’ve done nothing… had minimal fun… accomplished minimal accomplishments… BUT… I did basically single-handedly keep the fast food industry in business (you are welcome, Ronald McDonald).
That kind of living can wear a person down. A person subsists on accomplishments and success and if you aren’t getting those things periodically, you can end up feeling worthless. I’m glad I’m changing that… I have things I want to do, places I want to see, people I want to smack upside the head, donuts I want to eat (whoops… wrong dream)… No more using my weight as an excuse to not do those things. Tomorrow is too late… do it today!!
Best Days by Graham Colton
And it’s a winding road
And it’s a long way home
So don’t wait for someone to tell you it’s too late
Cause these are the best days
There’s always something tomorrow
So I say let’s make the best of tonight
Yeah let’s make the best of tonight
Here comes the rest of our lives.
Question of the Day: What have you always wanted to do that you have put off until a more “convenient” time?
