What's important to you?

January 24, 2006 - Get free updates of new posts here

So I had a great argument with my gf tonight and I have been thinking for the past few months about

What is important to you?

Shit, I do not want my blog turning into a motivational speakers blog. For that great stuff check out Steve Pavlina, but for here I just want to speak my feelings that I think other young professionals, college students and bored workers may enjoy.

We all go through arguments with our loved ones, get rejected by that job really want, don’t get to work on that project we thought would save the company or lose that receipt you need to return those pants that you thought were really cute. Okay, last one was a joke but you catch my drift. Realizing what’s important to me helps me feel better when times suck.

Thinking about what’s important to me, helped me realize that a lot of stuff I get angry or depressed about and such really isn’t that important. It helps me think about what means most to me:

  • my loved ones
  • my health
  • my happiness

Are basically all I need in life to be satisfied. I think about this when someone is really passionate or upset over something not going there way. I think is it really worth it to argue over a comma on a website or other situations, NO.

So let it go, smile, relax and think about what’s important to you. This was message from “the more you know…” =P If you made it this far, leave comments about what’s important to you and how you deal with difficult times/situations.

    I know one thing NOT to do when trying to get over difficult situations, and that is to drink. I went through a rough period in my life a year and a half ago and a drank alot. It was a bad idea. It just prolounged really getting over the problem. Usually what I do to get through difficult times now is to be around my friends and talking about shit. Its not good to keep it bottled up. Also, I go and play golf. I cannot be upset about anything on a golf course. Do something you love to do. Thats my advice. By the way, ive been RSSing your blog for a week now and I dig it, keep up the good work.

    gonna have to go with loved ones and my own happiness too.

    it’s a good perspective to keep! everytime things goes bad and whatever silly negative things may sink into my mind, I remind myself of what’s important to me.
