The Dreamer

Find your calling, everyone has a choice in life, you choose your happiness.

Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed (The Real Reason For The Forty-Hour Workweek)

We should work so much, if we had less, maybe we would work less and do more of what we love and live real life changing experiences. Become who we really are.

Most of us spend the better part of our lives creating and validating our worthiness or our value in the world by what is outside of us instead of what is within us. Don’t define yourself based on what you have or what you do, but who you are.

Siren Song of The Heart: How Your True Self can Ruin & Reclaim Your Life.

This is my thoughts put exactly into words, I was never able to pin-point the problem but there it is, the author of this article describes the source of my everyday anxiety, how I always feel like I don’t fit the mold in my job and in society and the guilt that comes along with it. I shouldn’t feel guilty for not being motivated at work, I should feel guilty for not letting my light shine through, containing it for so long only did me harm and limited my unknown potential. I know it scares me, it scares me to become unconventional but I just feel like it’s time, it’s time to let my light shine.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Rumi

I am a dreamer

Call me a dreamer

All of this freedom and I want to runaway

Great job, nice car, some friends but it’s still not enough I say

Call me a dreamer

It seems unreal to want to settle down

But 9 to 5 job makes the economy go round

I want to break free and find my calling

See the world and maybe start drawing

Call me a dreamer

My imagination is caged like a prisoner

Technology and buying things make me a laborer

Who am I, I lost myself a long time ago

Call me a dreamer

I am a traveller, that’s my identity

Citizen of the world

I have no enemies

What holds us back is making so much money

To spend on things that will never set us free

Chains and balls, are you a slave?

I am a dreamer that’s why I’m safe

Call me a dreamer

I just want to take your hand

and runaway with you

Take you some place far there’s so much to do

Take you to a place so right, we don’t have to stay

Call me a dreamer

I have too much to say

Can’t stand this mediocre life

The kind you sit around and try to start a fight

Parents pointing me in the right direction,

when I want to go left

It seems not right to restrain myself

When I only want what’s best

Dreamers are always unsatisfied

What made me become a dreamer is possibly the fact that I am surrounded with motivational quotes, great characters on tv and online and just a minority of very awesome people who inspire me day after day to the point that I feel like my life is never good enough. That’s when you start feeling like there’s always something missing. That my life is boring and not nearly as extraordinary as it could be. Sometimes I have to ground myself and remind myself that life isn’t a movie, reality isn’t all about fun and fame and glamour, life is work your butt off to make a living - struggles with your looks - learn to appreciate your job and the people you date and constantly try to fit into society. My whole life I felt like my life was a movie and every song is a soundtrack to my life, or that I am meant to be an actress or a movie producer or something. I realize now how naive I’ve been and that I will never be happy with such unrealistic expectations of what my life should be. Everyone around me leads pretty mediocre lives yet I always want to go against the current- and I make myself believe that I have all the assets to do so but I really don’t. Truth is fear holds me back like there is no tomorrow, I never spend enough time on my underdeveloped talents and quite frankly I don’t know if I ever will. I’d rather spend time doing nothing, relaxing, sleeping, watching tv, surf the net and Facebook - day dream about a better life of peace in another country spending days on the beach with a cool group of friends. I never put in the time to find my so called calling, but I do spend a lot of time bitching about finding it. Should I just leave it up to faith then?

▪    Realize what it costs you when you buy into myths of perfection. This was a very powerful reason for me to let go of perfectionism and one I tell myself still if I find thoughts of perfection pop up in my mind. By watching too many movies, listening to too many songs and just taking in what the world is telling you it is very easy to be lulled into dreams of perfection. It sounds so good and wonderful and you want it.
But in real life it clashes with reality and tends to cause much suffering and stress within you and in the people around you. It can harm or possibly lead you to end relationships, jobs, projects etc. just because your expectations are out of this world. I find it very helpful to remind myself of this simple fact.

Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you choose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self-portrait. Everything is a diary. Chuck Palahniuk (via psych-facts)

(via psych-facts)

Ask anyone and they’ll most likely say their family is crazy, and if they don’t say their family is crazy, their friends are crazy. That’s because everyone is crazy after taking the mask off. People are most themselves when not really trying to fit in, when either alone or around those already closest to them, and that is crazy. ― Criss Jami (via psych-quotes)
