And most people have been on the net long enough to read some rah rah shit about how your life should be spent chasing your passions. But there's a huge chasm here that I believe plays a part in why so many people feel this sort of emptiness about their place in their world. My football story wasn't even good enough to get a movie made after it, like Rudy. I could make friends through it, create some fun and amazing experiences with it. And for many years there was this emptiness and longing of wanting that. Most of which actually do provide for me and my kids. And it just so happens, I was able to enmesh my design with my passions and cultivate a life that had both meaning for me, and the ability to provide. If you're lucky enough that your design and passion aligns, the that's lottery type stuff. Lots of people drift through their life with this sense that they lack purpose, jumping from job to job trying to "find that right fit".Our passions are often a product of things we've been exposed to. You expected a "no" right there, but I pimp slapped you with a "Yes, I did." Tom and I went out after the game and partied with super models all night and did a butt ton of ecstasy. But I wasn't designed for it enough that it would provide a real degree of sustenance for me. It wasn't until I woke up one morning after a practice with an indoor team, where I was so sore I couldn't turn my head that I realized I was done with such stupidity. I found out I was pretty good at this whole writing thing, and that I really liked it a lot. For the great majority that feel as if they are wandering aimlessly at times, the question they sit around and ruminate on is "what do I want to be when I grow up? Then there's the other kind of people who dream all day about developing or finding their design and finding what they are passionate about, but are never brave or ambitious enough to do anything about it. You're going to be sitting on the toilet one day when you're like 79, flipping through whatever cosmic device that's been invented by that time, looking at lion memes, and it's going to dawn on you, right there in mid-shit - "I wasted a lot of years, doing a lot of stuff that I wasn't designed for, nor passionate about." Lions understand their design.You will need to correct my email address; AT to @.
An earlier questioner asked how metal blades in wet shavers lost their sharpness so easily on human hair.Does any reader know why alternating blades makes each one last longer?A golf ball has dimples on its surface to increase the efficiency of airflow over it and let it fly further.You on the other hand, can't take down a fully stuffed burrito from Chipotle or get your two year into bed at night without a fight that leaves you completely disheveled.One thing that social media has done is saturated people's minds with is meaningless platitudes to make them feel better about who they aren't. There's not a day that goes by that I'm not inundated with some catch phrase or meme about being some wild animal that cannot be stopped, and how you can't let your passions elude you. Not really a fan of women who want to step on me with elephants while firing fully automatic machine guns into the air.
