Life in the Fast Lane, 2013

One of my friends posted today that she was reading how all the people she knows are vowing to blog daily, or exercise, or eat less, or sew sweaters out of dustbunnies for poor orphaned frogs. Well, you get the idea. The thing is, she can't do those things. The most she can do is live each day without too many regrets. Then she apologized for that, as though she should be doing more. All the time. Every day.


I'm so tired of this. I see it everywhere. I see it in myself. I see people who seem to be doing so much more than I am. People who are achieving more. People who are losing more weight. People, people, people.

Again I say, Fuck.That.Noise.

I'm not saying that folks shouldn't set goals or have dreams or lose weight. I'm saying that I'm tired of keeping up with everyone else's goals and dreams. I'm tired of feeling like I'm screwing up or a failure because I'm not keeping up with everyone else's goals and dreams.

Here's the thing. I want them, those amazing people with their incredible goals and dreams to live their lives. In return, I want to live my life, with my expectations, in my reality.

Who's with me?

Live Your Life, with Your expectations, in Your reality.

  1. I'm with you Lovebug ! And yes it's a great day when we have a normal day around Chez Eveland. Our goals should be our goals - not what the grand bandwagon wants eh?

  2. YES!!! Exactly. Why is it so hard to remember that? :sigh:
