You like pain but only if it doesn’t hurt too much
And you sit, and you wait, to receive
There’s an obvious attraction
To the path of least resistance in your life…
…‘Cause it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you, to you, to you, to you, to you
– Alanis (Wake Up)
The effort that it takes to go beneath the surface, to seek the truth, to appreciate the emotions, to hear a contrarian view
Is the difference between a life lived on lazy terms
And a life lived on your terms
Because the truth is – the lazy life isn’t our choice. It’s been dumped on us. By the average world around us. Seducing us towards it. By showing how thrilling the experience is right now. Why should you care about later?
The truth is – by living the lazy life you are living someone else’s life.
It’s easy not to do the hard work. And it’s easy to call it your choice.
Just that, it isn’t!
