Work work work, day after day. All I seem to hear is this is work, that is work, this needs work, and you need to work on that. I understand the aspects of work. I understand the need for work. I am very much a task oriented individual. I understand that life is boring as shit if you have nothing to work for, but today I am I going to put my foot down and say that sometimes we focus to much on the damn work and forget what we are working for. We lose sight of the prize or purpose as we toil away like zombies with our heads hung down drudging through life, trying to figure out what work needs to be done.
So many things in our life require work, really they do, but why are you working? That is the question I am working through in my head. I would like to think that one works toward a purpose, so you are working to move forward. You are working towards something right? You following me so far? So in the movement forward you are in motion. Maybe not in the totally physical sense, but alas you are moving forward. So even if you are toiling away in a cubicle farm there is still a goal that you are working towards. For most the goal in happiness in one form or another.
So lets think about this movement to happiness. There are these things that the Newton guy came up with, not the fig, but the Sir Issac type. There are three of these laws and they are fairly simple to grasp, but if I lose you, pick up a book. Maybe you should have paid attention in secondary school, and if you didn't go choke yourself. Teachers work hard enough as it is for little money, and you are impeding their motion by being a dim witted self absorbed tool. So the first law goes something like this; Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. So an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless something stops it. So if you are a lazy fat ass eating a bag of cheetoos on the couch and forget which was your cheetoo hand, and end up with orange dick, well its because something stopped you. What stopped you, usually its you, you know that apathy that retards to laziness. Yet who knows that might be your form of happiness so go with it there tiger dick.
The second law of motions is; The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector. So mass and acceleration are expressed in the force of your life, not the star wars Jedi stuff, but velocity. This means run fat ass, run. The more you move forward to your goal, and the more weight you put into achieving that goal, the greater the velocity you will have to propel you to that goal. So your efforts do pay off, just make sure you are pointed in the right direction. Without an understanding of your target you will shoot by it.
The last of the laws is that for every action there is an equal an opposite reaction. This means if you run into someone with all of your force their force will be applied to slowing you down, or ping you off in the opposite direction. So many times your happiness can be derailed by the pursuit of another happiness because you run at them instead of with them. If they are not a chip eating fridge grazer, odds are that their velocity is greater then yours, and you will feel like your happiness was hit by the proverbial train of their pursuit of happiness. Then both of you are losing the efforts or momentum of your work. This is conflict, it is part of life, but rarely does it get your happiness, unless you blew by your happiness and the conflict makes you stop and think about it.
This is my thoughts on relationships. If you are running at each other, neither of you can achieve happiness. If you are running with each other, then you need to be running at the same thing, or you will end up moving apart. Three degrees of separation get pretty damn big with the mileage you are going to turn during your life. Its not good or bad, it just is. So think about this when you are looking at your life. Are the people in your life running as fast and hard as you are? Are you running in the same direction? Or maybe you are running into each other and stopping each person from achieving happiness. Work is good, but working to just work is a waist of your time, and therefore a waist of your life. So get a move on, try to keep pace. Build up the mass of your smile, and run with the pack you want to run with. If paths part they part, but understand why, so you know if you are pulling someone to their happiness, or are they knocking you away from yours. Life shouldn't be bumper pool.
So on that note, understand I am a cannonball. I am that fat kid heading for the pool, and when I find my happiness I fully intend to keep running with it. No point is fixed, the universe is always moving, so if you stop moving happiness will blow on by. Get moving and get living, or get the fuck out of my way. If you something is to much work and not putting you in motion to the things you want to do, maybe its time to let them go. Work with me, and not against me, and maybe we can all be happy before we stop moving in this life, and move onto the next.
