Some where between the last couple of times I’ve been blogging and right now I’ve decided that my life-long aspiration is to make as much money as theoretically possible while doing the least amount of work possible.
I guess that’s what every person wants, but I’m actually trying to accomplish it. Because I mean, it is possible. It’s weird - I spend all my time thinking about shit I want to invest in, in the future, the kind of lifestyle I want, the freedom I want, the things I want to buy, places I want to see, the kinds of lavish things I want to indulge in… And I feel like it’ll happen one day. I’m passionate as hell about it.
It reminds me of The Secret. The basis of the movie is that we all function on the Law of Attraction - everything that happens in our day-to-day lives are the reprocussions of our thoughts. I have a highly cynical friend who believes it’s all bullshit, but I don’t know. I think the concept in it’s most elementary form leaves a lot of room for it to be attacked, but I don’t know… I feel like there’s something extremely legit about it.
The last few months since I’ve watched it again for the first time in a long while have been amazing. Life has been going my way, and I feel like it has a lot to do with my mental state. The things I think. The way I feel.
It’s funny looking at myself sometimes, though. I feel like I was 100x more cynical and pessimistic about humankind, people, human nature and all that such a long time ago. I don’t know if I’m content and more optimistic these days because I think I’ve found some magical route to bring me easy self-solace, or because this stuff is actually real. Golden trail or delusional.
I feel like I could be both at the same time, but either way I think it’s working. And whatever I think is right, right?
So a couple nights ago I wanted to stay in and chill so I watch tons of social documentaries on class and economics. One of the most interesting ones was Freakonimcs which was basically a summarized visual depiction of the book written by University of Chicago Economist Steven Levitt.
It features a bunch stuff ranging from our views on names and how it depicts socio-economic class. And the housing crash from a few years back. I took a sociology class back in sophomore year and I’ve been interested in this kind of stuff ever since. And I’m about to be taking Economic and Statistic classes anyway so I figure I might as well know a little bit.
BUT this link takes you to the wikipedia page, but if you don’t read the book and you have a netflix account, you should definitely invest an hour and a half in this. I watched it and now I want to buy the book.
I know wikipedia sucks, but it’s the easiest shit for our generation hahah.
I would just like to say to the world that I’m being stalked by a black kitten. I’ve bumped into this kitten coming home at the bank, when my little siblings see it outside, when I’m coming home at obscure hours of the night. Last night someone pointed the kitten out when we were coming through white oak which freaked me the fuck out.
I know black cats are supposed to be bad luck so just in case something crazy or ratchet happens to me I’d just like to say it’s all because of this homeless, crazy ass, stalking black kitten.
Recently I’ve been self-experimenting with the idea of the law of attraction. I’ve been obsessing with this movie I’ve seen a long time ago, but just recently decided to take seriously called The Secret.
The entire premise is that we are the creator’s of our realities. They say that your mental state - i.e. emotions, ideas and self-esteem - draw occurances into our current living state. If you’re constantly talking about how much you hate someone, then you’re always thinking about how much you hate them, then you always see them - ergo you’re making your life worse. So basically, they say every thing you want is atainable so long as you believe it is atainable and you align your mental state with the track you need to follow to obtain it.
It sounds redundant almost. Everyone hears the “Anything is possible” cliches, but I’m finally going to try and take it seriously. Well, I have been taking it seriously, and life has been good.
I have two amazing jobs, I’ve been surrounded by people that do nothing but make me happy, I’ve been in a consistently good mood, and I’ve been having so many surreal “Wow, I can’t believe this is happening to me” moments. It’s been freaking me out. I’ve been focusing all of my energy on making sure things go my way (even in the smallest of examples), and it works out everytime.
I also finally made my vision board and the most noticable things on it are these sentences that say:
You will live an abundantly fulfilling life; I am living an abundantly fulfilling life
You are surrounded by people who love and support you
I have everything I want
I will always have enough
I’m just excited about all the amazing opportunities that’ll begin to present themselves once I move to NY in a month. I just want my life to stay on this track forever. I’m probably experiencing the best time of my entire life right now, and all I have is college to look forward to. I’m a very fortunate person.
