I still haven’t quite gotten the hand of Tumblr. I’m also not on here that much either to get the hang of it. *shrug* Oh well!!
Now for the reason I’m posting…
People often tell me I need to take a break, or I work too hard. I laugh because I feel as though I don’t work enough. If I could go 24 hours straight 5 days a week without rest, I would. Lets face it though, that’s not going to happen. I used to go 4 days a week without sleep. (ask me about it). After you do that, you kind of feel as though you can accomplish anything. (Side note the only things used to keep me up were energy drinks, multivitamins, refusal to be sleepy, and prayer. No illegal drugs. I wouldn’t suggest anyone do that though. This is not an endorsement of not sleeping but me sharing my life. So go to bed now!!) Though that sleep regimen was murder and has ultimately given me insomnia I know that if I push my limits I can achieve the seemingly impossible. Before that, I didn’t really push myself. I didn’t know how. I didn’t know the benefits of pushing myself. Now I do. That time taught me so much. It taught me how to just go for it and don’t stop. That time taught me not to take no for an answer. When people tell me to take a break I laugh. I laugh because they don’t have my responsibilities. I laugh because they don’t have my drive. I laugh because they don’t understand. I enjoy every day of life. I have to or otherwise there’s no way I could work so hard. There’s no way I could relentlessly pursue my goals if I didn’t enjoy what I do daily. When the clock stops for LaToya Rene I want the people to say “She did it. She lived, she loved, and that crazy girl didn’t stop. And she did it all with a smile.” I might be crazy, but I’m not stopping until the game is over.
Anytime I hear elderly people speak of regrets its them wishing they could have done more. You never hear of them saying, they wish they could have done less. They talk about feeling sorry for not living the life of their dreams. I encourage anyone to live the life they dream of. Take a stand for you. Don’t just exist, Live!!! When great is an option, good is not enough.
