oh no i’ll sell em for a dollar
they’re worth so much more after i’m a gonner
and maybe then you’ll hear the words that i’ve been singin’
its funny when your dead how people start listenin’” —If I Die Young by The Band Perry
At this business event/lecture thing like a month ago, the speaker said something that is stuck in my mind. He got on the topic of job interviews and standing out, and said that it is important to know three things that distinguishes yourself from the crowd. He said it is very important to know these during an interview so when the interviewer gives you time to speak about yourself, you don’t just freeze up and and start to sweat (story of my life). All this time has pasted since that evening (all of like a month), and I still have no idea what distinguishes me from the next person. It seems like it would be an easy thing to come up with since i have been living for almost nineteen years now (I am getting old!). But, for some reason, I really cannot think of anything. I mean, I have some ideas but I am really bad at wording things, and I don’t even know if they are things that are distinguishable. I just need three things; it can’t be that hard.
i miss all my friends from back home. i feel like i have not talked to y’all in forever. i feel distant, not myself. it’s just not the same. and i am to blame for not even trying to keep in contact with them. like i just have blown people off. i miss those that i used to see everyday during high school. y’all were just always there. friendship was effortless. but i guess this is just the test. if i really care then it would still be effortless, just a little distance between. i am sorry for not putting forth the effort. i miss you.
Everything is fine.
The rules of life are made up.
The rules only exist in your mind.
Of course there may be courtesies
And closures and laws to abide,
But the zeal with which you play
Relies on where YOU draw the line” —Jason Mraz
Anger and regret are a waste of time and energy. When you mess up, recognize what you did wrong, promise yourself you won’t do it again, take steps to make sure that you’re not in that position again….and move on.
thank you! i love them! ;]
