Captain’s Log 5,905
Sometimes, something just hits you so squarely between the eyes that your breath is sucked right out of your soul. I call them soul-stopping moments.
I was cruising around on Facebook earlier this morning when I found this on someone’s timeline. Bang! Kerpow!
I spent too much of my life doing this in one way or another. But no more. I am not interested in compromising my values for anyone – being judged for my salary (you could be earning so much more), my English major (a stupid major that has no value in the market place), the cheap little car I love and drive (you can afford something nicer), my looks (you don’t really spend much time in front of a mirror, do you?), how I dress (not very classy or sophisticated), or my choices to live life as a quirky experience rather than the American dream (too old for silly shit like geocaching and all the pirate stuff – plus I will be damn sorry I never got married, settled down, and had kids).
To those who might choose to hammer me for any of these things, I simply say…….
Go fuck yourself……and have a nice day.
When people put you down, they are only doing that to make themselves look bigger and better. Life is too short to try pleasing the asshats of this world. I had a lovely discussion on the boat last night with someone I admire deeply. This very subject. And then, when I open up Facebook this morning…..I see it again.
Listen to what the universe is trying to tell you.
