Get Your Shit Together

Your life is a wreck. Who’s fault is that?

Too many people seem to be living life like they’re going to live forever. Like they have all the time in the world tucked safely into their pocket and life is just some video game they have all the cheats to. So I hate to be the one to break it to you people living in your little fantasy world, but you’re not living forever. You’re going to die. And you don’t know when. So tell me: why do you insist on wasting all of your limited time?

“When I die, I wanna know that I lived for a reason.”

I’ll never understand how people can go through life doing the bare minimum, if even that. I’ll never understand why people lack the need to find meaning in life; why they have no goals, no desires, dreams or plans. They grind through their work weeks like zombies, only looking forward to Lady’s Night at the club and weekends out all night at bars. All they care about are their views on Snapchat, their likes on Instagram, and comments on Facebook.

Life is what you make it. Your problems are your own and no one else’s. The situation you’re in right now is because of you. If you think otherwise, then open your eyes and look around. Stop pointing blame. Stop waiting for something or someone to come along and save you. If there’s something in your life that you don’t like, then get up and fix it. If you want something, then go get it. It may not be easy, but nothing worth having in life comes easy.


The job you have is the job you chose. Stop complaining and work it. If you’re going to do something then why not do your best? Show up on time. Hell, show up early. Work your hours and then some. You go to your job in a pissed off mood, get in arguments, then leave early and wonder why you’re about to get fired with an empty wallet.

“If you don’t like the job you have then what do you do it for? The cure to pain isn’t something you buy at liquor stores.”

There’s a cycle of negativity spinning all around you like a twister, and you’re the one that keeps it going. You’re the one that keeps doing the same thing over and over, yet at the same time hoping something will change. I’m pretty sure it was Einstein who said that’s the definition of insanity. Nothing will change if you don’t change it. You won’t change if you don’t. Nothing will get better, and you won’t know true happiness until you yourself set goals, make plans, and do what needs to be done.

Find your passion and put in the work. Put in the hours. You have one life and a limited amount of time that’s ticking away as I write this and as you read it. Hopefully, I’ve inspired you a little. Go get your shit together.


Hey, everyone! Hope you’re all having a decent start to your week. As I mentioned in my last post, a publishing company has recently contacted me and requested I submit a piece of writing to them for a series they have going on. I’ve written the first draft of a short story and could use some feedback on it. If you’re interested, email me at

Thanks for reading!

Talk soon,

  1. I love this, and I love more to see how your writing has flourished since I had been gone. I’ll bet if you go back and read some of your initial post you’ll say…. dang it…great going!!! And ps. I plan on living to 100, everything else will be extra credit for me. And yes, karma is good and bad and we own it.

    1. Can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’ve taken the time to notice the progress of my writing. I myself haven’t even. I’ll def have to go back and see coz it feels like I’m sort of running in place.
      Lol, love the optimism! 🙂 I struggle with maintaining such a view but hopefully I can get there. Hope all is well with you Donna! I know whatever you’re doing, you’re enjoying life and living it to the fullest. Much like you’ll continue doing well into your hundreds. Lol lots of extra credit ;P
