Who Am I? Well I guess in some ways I'm like most
human beings and in other ways I'm not. I tend to enjoy a good laugh
more than most and never try to take anything so seriously (except
for my work of course). Being "laid back and easy going"
would probably be an understatement in describing me. Afterall, why
should any of us be so uptight and serious all the time? I just don't
see the point. Just like I don't see the point of acting like a jerk
so I always try to be the "nice guy". Although I do notice
sometimes theres truth in that old saying "nice guys finish last".
But hey no one can always finish first and we can only be ourselves.
That said I enjoy being me and so should everyone else (not being
me, being themselves). Sometimes I say too much and other times not
enough, but whatever I say I always try to keep meaningful (meaning
either entertaining and/or informative). I love my family, friends
and the company they give me but I also enjoy the company of myself
because we all need those moments of inner peace. I always enjoy meeting
new people, especially those I have a lot in common with but who also
bring a little something extra to the table. Movies (at home or at
the theatre), snowboarding or "jus' chillin" with friends
or by myself are my favorite past-times, but I'd certainly like to
add more to that list. I've been told that I'm a good listener but
I've always considered listening to be a pretty easy thing to do anyway.
I always try my best to understand other people, although sometimes
I just find certain people to be incomprehensible. I'm glad everyone
else on this world is different from each other, unfortunately not
everyone can be different in a good way. Sometimes I focus too much
on the negative aspects of things, I'll have to work on that or take
up being a critic as a career option. I enjoy sports but more on the
active side as opposed to being a spectator. I tend to be more of
an artistic, creative type rather than the brainy science guy, but
I still know 1+1=2. I enjoy any kind of work that allows me to be
creative so I am grateful for the job I have as a Marketing Manager
and Web Designer. Also, props to LEGO for inspiring my creativity
during childhood. When I think of more to say about me, I'll add it
in but that's it for the time being.
Now if you're not already bored, I will give
you my little insight on life. Like Forrest Gump's mother said,
"life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're
gonna get". Sometimes you flush and sometimes you bust, the
trick is to know when to quit and when to go for the gold. Theres
nothing wrong with quitting, so long as doing it leads you to success.
Like anything else, too much success is bad for you. It breeds envy
and hatred because not everyone can be as successful as you. When
you come to that road, leave success behind and travel on the path
to happiness because in the end, being happy is all that really
matters. Life is a constant balance, though we don't always see
it but for every action there is a reaction and so every single
thing we do has a consequence. Show respect to others even if they
have not earned it and pity those who do not respect you for they
have no respect for themselves. Humbleness is the path to heaven
and pride will only make you blind with arrogance. Be happy about
the good things you do but do not take yourself for granted because
we never truly know what we deserve. Life itself is a gift from
God and everything else we receive in our lives is a blessing. Love
your family and friends but yourself as well, otherwise how can
you love them? Most importantly, love God for he is the giver of
all life and the one who ultimately grants us eternal peace.
