It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! But apparently my wednesdays are getting wiser again (though, don’t be fooled by my seemingly up spirit lately, my Uni is getting way off track and I don’t think I’ll be able to get things back together before the end of the year. I’ve let it slip too far to catch up on things again..)
Anyway, I read these words in the paper about 2 months ago, and they stuck with me, so I figured it was time to share them;
In fifteen minutes, everyone will be in the future.
I suppose it’s a bit of a spin on Andy Warhol’s famous quotes, but I like it nontheless. It helps me put things into perspective. Why dwell on the past. or even on the now. It’s gone before you realize it. And also with the whole procrastinating your good will. ‘I’ll start tomorrow..’, or, ‘Well, I’ve already fucked up for the rest of this week now!’ etc. What’s going on now can seem forever ago in just a little bit, so don’t worry about it too much. In fifteen minutes, you’ll be in the future. In fifteen minutes, whatever is bugging you now will be in your past. In fifteen minutes, you’re your future you. in fifteen minutes, whatever was bugging you will be part of your baggage and nothing more than that. Hey, isn’t that liberating?
