Somewhere along the last 10 years, I lost the passion in my life. I started to try to live “smart”. Be economical, save money, live efficiently, avoid conflict. What have I learned from this? I learned that being efficient and conflict free makes for a boring life.
I stopped challenging others. I stopped challenging myself. Life has become a series of intelligently numb moments. I’ve become one of those people that turn to food for emotional stimulation. I’ve become complacent with just living instead of thriving.
Now, it is 2013. I am not going to make a resolution. I am going to make a lifestyle change. I am going to start living the life I deserve to enjoy. I am going to rediscover the passions in life. The good and the bad passions. I am going to get angry, excited, erratic, eccentric, jubilant… hell, I am going to get damn well dramatic.
It’s time to redefine myself. It’s time to change. And if people don’t like it, I say “Bring it on”. I need some conflict in my life.
