Why do you love me?

Why do you love me?

It’s hard enough to say “I love you”

Harder to think of why we love a person

Harder still to have to explain it

It’s magical when someone tells us they love us

 

It gives the sense that the certain person has chosen us out of many to express this distinct feeling

It makes us feel special

Don’t deny it, it does.

But when we say we love someone, do we know why?

Growing up is a trap… don’t let me scare you but it is

If you’re a “new” adult I’m sure you know what I mean

No one tells you how it’s gonna be

You sit in class and you’re like I can’t wait till I start working and I don’t have to think about these damn lectures and assignments

Here’s what I say – enjoy those “damn lectures and assignments” they are probably one of the easiest things you’re gonna have to deal with

Growing up …

This can’t be it…

This can’t be it…

I want to be more than this

I know this isn’t it for me

But do I work hard enough to get the things I want?

To get to where I want to be?

I guess if I had to ask…

But sometimes I can’t help it

I’m not motivated

I wake up and I say, “today will be different”

And guess what?

It never is

It’s the same cycle

I wake in the morning and immediately my eyes pop open

I can’t wait till it it’s time for me to close them again

This can’t be it

This can’t be how I get to where I want to be

This can’t be how I live the life God has given me

But maybe it’s not so bad

Some days I smile

I smile a lot more than I thought I could

Some days I frown

I frown a lot

Frowning is my default state these days

Maybe it’s because I know I’m not “doing it right”

But wait, I still smile sometimes

I smile

When I’m happy, when I’m not

I smile because it means people leave you alone

When you smile people assume that you are happy, that you are okay.

And I guess that’s a good thing

It is the best look to have really

That’s a lie, I don’t really smile

People would testify

I’m a grump

This write up has too many angles

Let me be more coherent

*clears throat*

A good number of people are not where they want to be

Who do you take it out on?

Why are you unhappy?

Whose fault is it?

No one really

In fact it’s most likely yours

I know mine’s mine

It my fault I’m here

I could do so much more

I want to push myself

I want to be able to say I tried everything I could and it just didn’t work

But I can never say that if I never try

I always make excuses

I have excuses for everything

You know that thing called comfort zone

It sounds so safe

But it could very well be one of the most dangerous places you could find yourself or rather keep yourself

This post is too long and it’s still not very coherent

But I’m sure someone gets what I mean (I hope)

Write soon xx

Free time

Free time

Value

Value – “the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.”

Am I adding value?

Does this add value to me?

My friend asked me a question yesterday.

It was 30 minutes to the time when we usually leave the office – 2 hours after work had officially closed.

I did nothing in those two hours. Okay I watched Maleek Berry’s Kontrol video like 6 times. But that still translates to nothing right?

I stayed behind only because I wanted a ride a home.

Anyway, so yeah, I walked up to my friend’s office to wait with her for the final 30 minutes.

I met her working on something. We engaged in mindless banter for like 5 minutes. Then I sat down to continue doing ‘nothing’.

Then she asked me – “What do you with your free time?”

I confess I got defensive (she didn’t know I did) But in my mind I was like: “B***h what do you mean???”. She didn’t say anything offensive but I got defensive just because I knew my answer was ‘nothing’ and I knew it was not ideal.

I spent the rest of my time there thinking…but really, what do I do with my free time?

What do you do with yours?

This post isn’t quite done yet.. but I’m tired… 😦
