A slave to your desires

A slave to your desires

Watching Tv late at night
Checking your phone when you’re trying to get shit done
Eating the cake or snacks
Porn

We’re all slaves to our desires, yet we are unchained and the gates to escape our pit are unguarded

We know this.
We know we can free ourselves
We know if we do we can grow
We can get that shit done.

But we don’t
We allow ourselves to be pulled back in
Pulled back to our desires away from the gates of freedom

We are slaves to our desires. Until we decide we are not.

Choose Your Pain

Long term reward normally has a short term pain…

For example I have Exercise induced asthma which is a weird combonation because long term, Exercise helps manage the asthma but short term after a run for example it causes a bit of a choughing fit.

On the other end of the scale we have short term pleasure which normally resulys in long term pain if repeated.

Lets go for a weird example and say someone starts watching porn (In a relatiobship) which as a one off or on occasion isnt an issue but if the porn watching contines, you get the short term pleasure of the quick relese, but the long term pain is that the porn starts interfearing with the intamacy between you and your partner…

The sex life is compromised and then the relationship starts to fall apart…

Where as if they went through the short term pain of not masterbating for one night so they had the sexual desire for their partner the next this would result in long term reward (Providing that the rest of the relationship was spot on)

Obvisioly a bit of short term pleasure every now and then isn’t an issue but eventually you have to decide what you want for the rest of your life, becuse which ever one you choose the long term is geting effected.

Life is…

Life is good
Life is great
Even though I’ve not felt it as of late

Life is good
Life is great
I’ve felt down
I’ve felt lonely
I’ve felt stressed
I’ve felt
Because I’m alive
Not matter what I feel
I’m living
And that is great
That is life.

Life is good
Life is great

The Mirror

I see my future when I look in your eyes,
There is no doubt that I’m with you forever
Just me and you together.

I look in your eyes and
I can see that it’s only you
That Can make me happy
I can see That it’s only you
Who can cause me pain
I can see that it’s only you
Who can deceive me, Who can Lie to me

I see my future when I look in your eyes,
There is no doubt that I’m with you forever
Just me and you together.

Through the pain,
Through the pleasure
wherever I go
You’ll be there
You’ll be the cause
You’ll be the solution
It’s just me in you

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Ok this isn’t entirely true, if you go to Rome you’ll see ancient history blended into modern-day living and it makes one beautiful city (I think I’ve never been) Old and new clearly can live together there.

However…

When it comes to me and you

Old cannot live with the New.

The old way of doing things and a new way of thinking that is.

You want to achieve that big goal. That requires a new way of thinking.

But thinking alone can’t change anything…

So you have to change the way you do things too,

You can’t want to lose weight, but still, do the things that made you gain the weight in the first place.

You can’t get rich by doing the stuff that got you broke…

Do you want change?

The old way has to be evicted.
