The Secrets of Life … and Humans

 

Or is it the Mystery of Life? What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose? You only live once, so live it well?

I don’t think there is a true answer to any question when it comes to life aside from live it, and live it well. Who really knows. We all wonder and contemplate what is the meaning of life and the secret to life. It could vary from person to person and what they believe.

To be perfectly honest, of all the species I think humans make life a lot more complicated and frustrating than it really is. However, on the other side of things, I think we also make it the most fulfilling. What other living creature has the amount craziness, drama, happiness, sadness, stress, anxiety, structure, laws.. (this list is endless) all wrapped up in one day?  And on the positive to all that, what other living creature as lived in this world like humans have? We have literally destroyed this world but at the same time, in ways, have made it better, have LIVED in this world. We have invented ways to discover the world like no other. It’s just sad that in order to better ourselves, our lives and our ‘world’ we have to destroy it.

We are all striving to live in this world, succeed and most of to help save the world, but let’s be honest for a moment.

Take a step back and look at your life and look at what you are doing to better yourself/your life and compare it with what you are doing to better the world?

And I just realized how hypocritical I am. But am I? This world isn’t structure to put the world first. Humans made it to put ourselves first in order to make it and to live here. Yes you can break free of that structure and live by how society tells you and I applaud those that have done that. It’s probably one of the hardest things that anyone could ever do.

So what is the secret to it? The secret to living that fulfilling life and finding happiness?

I think it’s discovering who you truly are, what it truly means to be human and taking nothing for granted when it comes to relationships with your family, friends and your relationship with the world and future generations.

What do you think it is?

Generation Identity Crisis

Every generation is a problem generation. The flappers, the stoners, the hippies, the hard rock, technology kids … and so on. People always complain about the ‘teenagers’ and how they are such a problem and ‘when I was a kid, we never did that, we were never horrible like that.’

Well guess what – you were! Each generation of teenager brings a new ‘horrible’ trend or general characteristic trait. I think now a days, it’s the cyber bullying or ’20yr old’ 12 year olds – you know what I mean by that?  (by the way, I am aware I sound hypocritical in ways but I accept the fact that I, and my generation, had their issues as well. Every generation will complain about the one that followed them.)

First, I will talk about the cyber bullying. I can’t imagine being in high school now with Twitter, and Facebook, Kik, rate me, date me, hate me, …. all those crazy websites that make it so easy to bully another person, and do it anonymously. I know there are sites where you can have people come on and ask you questions, make comments all under ‘Anonymous’ It’s horrible really.

Kids these days  – technology has made it an entirely different war zone out there. When I was a kid – we were never that mean, never cyber bullied by posting tweets and/or comments anonymously … we said it to their damn face!!

It’s sad really how materialistic and dependent these children have become on the world of technology and thoughts of other people. They have accounts everywhere and are determined to get the most likes, comments, followers, friends,…..whatever it may be. From their status updates about their relationships, their ‘fat’ day pictures, to my all-time favourite – the album dedicated to themselves consisting of self pics in their bathroom mirror.  (that being said, I am guilty of posting oneself picture in front of my beautiful backdrop of a shower curtain – but people wanted to see my Halloween costume, so it’s a legit excuse right?!)

It makes me sad to see these 12-18 year olds looking and acting like they are 20+. I know for a fact in the region I live in, there are 4 (probably more) bars that I refuse to go to because they are littered with high schoolers with fake ID’s thinking they are the coolest people ever …. until they are face planted in their own vomit because they are just can’t handle the booze! Or getting an STD from the dirty man who always has his movember stash neatly combed year round.

I can honestly say, I used a fake ID once in my life and it was the day before my 19th birthday. My best friend’s birthday is the day before mine, and we were the last of our group to turn the big 19! And don’t get me wrong, I partied before then and after that. I had my fill and I still enjoy a night out or two.

People want to grow up way too fast! WHY? Growing up definitely has it’s advantages but trust me – there is no nap time when you are older! Life is hard when your a highschooler – because of drama, just stay out of it. Life is hard when your older because of debt, responsibility, children, etc. You can’t get out of all that as easily as you can get out of the high school drama. So enjoy it while you can.

Before I wrap up my little rant, I will tell one last story.

I bought a top, a very nice top that wasn’t too tight, but hugged my curves in a sophisticated way. Nice scoop neck that left more for the imagination than most ‘bar’ shirts but still gave a hint of what was in store. It was classy, sexy and sophisticated. I paired it with some jeans and boots and I looked pretty darn good I think. This top went just past my butt cheeks and the lady at the store complimented it (and she wasn’t on commission) and it even looked great on the manikin. A little while later I was at the bar, having a beer or two with some friends and when I turned around there was a girl who I seriously doubted was 19, wearing the exact same top as me – AS A DRESS!! I so badly wanted to shut this girl down but I think her butt cheek smile said it all. I simply shook my head and walked away, praying for her dignity and self-respect to kick in soon – and that she would fall over and leave nothing to the imagination because I highly doubt she was wearing any underwear.

I really wish I could smack kids these days and teach them to have better self-respect (boys included). But all I can do is shake my head and walk away and know that when they are my age, they will understand (hopefully) and will probably be bitching about how horrible teenagers are and they were never like that….. -_-

For the record – I am 26 and as a teenager I was never like that 🙂 Although I did cause my parents grief with my attitude for about 2 years of high school. My generation – we weren’t perfect either (some of us still aren’t)

So before you bitch and complain about how horrible teenagers are, just stop and think about what you were like. Then just shake your head and walk away.

Screw stuck in the middle, I’m stuck in the past!

Don’t dwell on the past! The past is the past! The past is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift.

There is lots to say about the past and so many reasons to continue to keep your back to it. But the fact is, the past is YOUR past. YOUR journey in life. It is a part of who you are TODAY and TOMORROW. Never forget that.

I know I struggle with that. Sometimes I can’t seem to forget, or let go of the past. Even when I have every reason to forget it and move past it. It’s hard. Plus, the fact that I am a very curious person, I often think of what could have been, or where certain people are from my past.

I can be the the happiest place in my life (which right now, I think I am pretty damn close) and I will still ponder about my past adventures, relationships and experiences. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Sometimes you can learn a lot about yourself when you look back and think about something or someone from years ago. And I often do.

I definitely don’t think you need to LIVE in the past and act as if things haven’t changed, but don’t forget it. Embrace it.

This is where it all began …

I have had multiple blog sites over the many years since the Internet was born. Some I kept up for quite awhile, while others dwindled off like Tiffany’s career. Whether or not this particular blog will be successful,well much like my web page title states – it’s debatable.

I am going to dedicate this blog to not only my life’s conundrums, experiences and adventures that may be relatable, but also to my opinions and thoughts that may just be debatable.

Maybe I can find the answers to my conundrums, or find the words to express how I am feeling, but in it all I really hope to entertain some stranger on the other side of the wireless internet wave,and who knows, maybe inspire them.

Here’s hoping for all of the above.
