"Everyday you can say, "I'd like to X one day. Just not right now" and one day you'll wake up to find yourself dead. Out of time."
See I do a lot of wishing, and saying I'll do something one day. I probably do it too much, but hey it's nice to have goals right? Well, as long as you go through with them. Normally when I say I'd like to do something, I mean I will do it. I have several grand plans. Considering the fact I've not really planned my life out at all (I should probably make a start on that) I make a lot of smaller plans. Which all weave together into one big plan.
So just what would I like to do? I'd like to know archery, how to ride a horse, classical dancing, a martial art (one day I'll probably take Tae Kwon Do back up), fencing/kendo, a musical instrument would be nice but I can accept if I can't actually do it, travelling, and even falconry. Oh and free running/parkour. Yes, I'm incredibly old fashioned. Very much so. So what am I doing right now in order to attain these goals? Well there are several things I need, the most important of all is confidence. I need to be able to go into a task with the thought that I can do it. This is something I'm not brilliant at but I'm getting there. Or I would be if my efforts to lose weight were more successful.
That's something else I need to work on. I know that I don't really need to be thin to do most of what I want, but I do need a general level of fitness. Also yes most of those can give me a heightened level of fitness. I actually own a wooden sword (I'm dangerous, no way I need a real one yet) and I do play around with it a bit. So far I've only managed to kill one light bulb.
There are several positive steps in my life I can take. One would be to join a gym, but I don't have the confidence for that. Or the funds actually. I can also try to find some kind of martial arts lessons around here. But I don't know how successful that venture would be. Plus, again, confidence.
The general point really is that I'm not just wishing my life away, I'm also doing something about achieving my goals and dreams, and you should do the same. Despite how depressing my life can be right now, I wanted to focus on this more. Plus there is such a thing as a problem that just can't be blogged about.
