"I was talking to my mom last night, I don't remember what about exactly, but I do remember telling her that "Everybody needs to take lessons in how to live life from Dillon." 'Cause everyone totally does, and you rock."This might have been the kindest thing anyone has ever said to me.
And it started to get my mind churning about why such a thought even occurred.
And I honestly couldn't figure out why.
I suppose it's hard to look at my own life in comparison to others, well, since it's my life and I'm unable to observe it from the perspective of an outsider looking in. I don't think anything special of the way I'm living my life - only that i try to do exactly that; live it. I decide on something and I do it. Sometimes I procrastinate to get it done, like any other person. I like to be organized and consequentially plan out my days, in which I might decide on more "somethings" that any other given day.
I'm rarely spontaneous, but love spontaneous people.
I get too dedicated to things I involve myself in, and tend to put more stress on myself than necessary.
I try to enjoy little things. A sip of sweet tea. Reading. Sunlight.
Traditions feel like a part of the past, while creating the future, and I enjoy the nostalgic qualities that they produce.
Dressing well is a part of my life.
As taught to me by my lovely mother of mine, it takes the same amount of energy to be mean as it does to be nice - so why not be nice?
I don't like to disappoint. Myself or others included.
Also, compliments tend to go farther than you think.
I'm not quite sure how, but I have come to be admired by my style (which by no means am I flaunting, since most of the time I don't really like what I wear and feel like I look ridiculous wearing) and certain people in particular are overwhelmed when I say something nice about their clothing. One friend in particular I posted on a photo that I liked her dress. Months later, during the first time I saw her, the first thing she told me was how happy that comment made her.
I must have high standards.
(I do have high standards.)
So, long contemplation made short, there is no reason that you too shouldn't feel like you're living life to your fullest. Just DO, however it is that you DO.
