The ole’ Familiar

No comments

So.. what makes it hard for you to move on to something better? Are you content, too lazy to move on, have you just given up or are you simply comfortable with where you are? As you grow older you grow wiser. Well, That’s what they say anyway. Perhaps, the saying was with time comes knowledge. Yeah, I think that was it. Well, that’s besides the point. Getting older definitely gives you knowledge. I say that simply because as you get older you stop putting up with simple stuff. You stop going out so much and pretty much play it safe. By playing it safe you stay at home a lot more and staying at home gives you time to think. I personally don’t mind being in my bubble. I play to win but my team is small. It makes the game a lot longer to play with so few people but that’s just the way it is. The ole’ Familiar.

That phrase “ole’ familiar” came to me one day when I was driving home from work. I got home, took my shower and put on my favorite sweat shorts and I actually said.. “aw hello my old friends” .. lol. Do you have a pair of sweats that you like to put on all the time when you are relaxing at home. Perhaps you have a favorite shirt or hoodie that you like to wear. That favorite piece of clothing gives you a sense of security. It makes you feel safe like there are no worries in the world. Yes, everything makes sense now that you are in your good ole’ familiars. Maybe it’s not clothing at all but a place that you like to go to that helps you relax and clear your mind like that park or that lake. Do you know that people can give you that same feeling. That good ole’ familiar. I hear people say all that time ” I cant wait to get home ” when they leave work. It’s not because you have anything to do particularly its jus that you want to get away from all the b.s and find you a nice little piece of familiar.. right? Trust me, I know how you feel. I listen to people talk all the time. I have a motto that I live by. It simply goes ” let people talk.. and they will tell you what you want to hear”. I want to say I made that up but I’m not sure anymore, hashtag Age. One thing that I’ve noticed is that most people have more than one thing that gives their minds clarity. A majority of people have more than one place they can go to that can gives them peace. On the other hand the last remaining few have more than one person that they can talk to about different things that can help ease their minds.

Are you playing it safe or are you living your life to the fullest?    To be honest it really doesn’t matter which direction you are headed or by what means you take to get the most out of it. I’m writing this blog to talk about what we already know and that’s.. well, what we already know. We know that foods we like, we know the people we deal with. We are familiar with the places we will go and the places we don’t want to be caught dead at or in. That’s now our style or our cup of tea. What you do says a lot about your character right? The company you keep says a lot about who you are. You keep to the same ole’ same that Good ole’ Familiar. Look around. Is that familiar getting you where you want to be? Is that familiar opening the doors that you want to open fast enough? Well I think I’m going to leave it like that. I’m going to leave this door open for argument and debate. Sometimes we have to think outside the box and step away from what we are comfortable with and get some new uncertainty. What do you think? Feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Is it better to stay the course or step off the ledge and catch a little air.
