Life and History
Ever wonder what would have happened if something happened differently?
Don’t lie, we both know you do and, as much as I hate to admit it, so do I.
Whether it goes completely wrong or exactly the way I want, I happen to be one of those people who at 2am who would stare off into space; ‘what would’ve happened if it happened a different way?’, ‘I would have been screwed if that happened’. This is one of those things I am not proud I do. I would gladly trade this for, say, biting my nails or fidgeting, but that’s not how life works because I would finally be able to sleep.
Life works like one of those viruses on TV, it keeps evolving and we can never know what will happen next. I find that to be quite stupid. Humans have lived for thousands of years and we still can’t predict what will happen next?
I realised I can never control it, but all I can do is enjoy the ride and overcome the problems as they come. It’s worked so far. Maybe just give it a go, what’s the worst that could happen?
As stupid as I find it, it makes sense. It’s the beauty of life. You never know what is actually behind the door even when you are about to open it. It’s almost like there is no peep hole. Lets see it from the other side, if you knew something was going to be hard, maybe fail would you have done it? I know I wouldn’t. This is exactly why we never know what is going to happen.
When I started thinking about a topic to write a blog on, the first thing which came to my mind was how I ponder over everything, I was a bit nervous about talking about it at first, but I realised if I am doing it someone else probably is as well and just because I got past it doesn’t mean the other person will. What type of a geezer will I be if I don’t help a fellow geezer out? A bad one, I think.
What we have to realise is life is never perfect, someone’s life may seem perfect but everyone hides their problems, and only the best bits are shown on Social Media. What helped me stop overthinking and just moving on from the past is reflecting on all I have achieved so far. To most it might not mean a lot but to me it’s everything.
Getting through school, getting into university, knowing that everything I have I earnt it. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be as small as getting out of bed and getting on with your day. Achievements on any scale don’t have to be big and glamorous, it just needs to make you content. And don’t think about the what-ifs, the important thing is you’re here now. Let’s move on and get it.
Geezers, we got this!
