Love the contrast
Hilux will still be going strong even when the fossil fuel runs out.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
The term comfort zones has become intrinsic in many lives. Not only does it give us a sense of belonging and assurance but detrimentally it provides nothing but closed doors. The main factor that prevents us humans from this is fear. The thought of the worst case scenario always entrenches our minds. The thought of ” what if this happens when I’m trying to do it” is buried deep in our nature. This can evolve into a detrimental state of mind that we sometimes don’t have the courage and tenacity to undertake risks necessary for our personal development. We often hear the common phase ” step out of your comfort zone” but we often deny and marginalise its message, but it is inevitable that we all have to one day leave this invisible space that entrenches us. We may have to depart this for maybe a minute, an hour, a day or maybe a year but after this process is complete it is undoubtedly beneficial to your wellbeing. Maybe people want to journey beyond the wildest imaginations but they lack motivation and inspiration to become ambitious about their goals. For example a bodybuilder training for mr olympia. When his in a state of comfort he realises that his competitors could be gaining an advantage. This is why he has broken through his personal mental barrier by completing 13reps instead of 10, this is why he spends his days eating chicken breast intend of lamb shanks, this is why he wakes up at 3.30am instead of 4.00am. This bodybuilder’s comfort zone has been eradicated to a point that everything he embarks in is a struggle all the way leading up the Mr Olympia. Pain and sacrifice is what we must endure to active our greatest desires. Just remember pain is temporary pride is forever.
This is one topic that intrigues me so much for this always happens whether I’m in a lecture, tutorial, the bus, train pretty much everywhere i go. Usually it starts when i say hi to someone or if an event happens in front of me and someone else and we both share the same reaction to the particular incident, through agreeing verbally or just through body language. This can lead to a minute conversation with this complete stranger while I’m in the train but once the discussion of a particular issue dies down, it is extremely difficult for me personally to bring fire to the conversation. Also if a person opens up with a conversional starter to you and you mention something contradictory in relation to the statement it kills inside. As a result of this, awkward silences occur. I don’t know whether to say something to start another conversion or wait for the other person to say something and while doing this I’m thinking to myself to what kind of conversion starter i should conjure at the same time as thinking about how he is going to react to what I’m planning to say to him. Like how am i suppose to know whether he is going to flip out and punch me or rudely disagree with what I’m trying to say to him in order to keep the conversation going.
Or on the other hand he/she could agree with you comments and as conversion proceeds you find out that your character traits and interests are similar and can lead to a great friendship. It is this constant implicit fear the prevents me from opening up. To the stranger it my seem to him that i am calm but in my head theres a battlefield as constant simulations of every single outcome that could happen conversate depend on the next action that is taken. I hate this so much, why can’t people just talk about anything to any individual with these constant fears of how he/she could react.Although in many instances in can be easy to speak to strangers. One main confidence boost is your peers. For me if I’m with my mates i feel unstoppable for i feed of them and gain confidence to speak openly. At one instance i was having lunch when a fine ass chick approached us to do a survey. I took control over the conversion and got her number in the process. I guess the boost in confidence could be a factor to impress your friends. As easy as it may seem it is extremely difficult to do this when alone whether on the bus or train resulting in awkward silences. If there is one thing that is to be learned from this blog is to never conversate about any relations with finances or family related matters when starting random conversation. This reason is that the person might be enduring tough financial or family times, which could be a buzz kill when starting conversation.
so over fucking everything. My life is the slowest motherfucker ever. It takes me so long to do the littlest fucking things. Sometimes i wonder why the fuck I’m living cause i am a waste of fucking time to everyone around me. Everyone around me is progressing in life in every facet while I’m here writing this fucking blog about how fucked up life is and how the fuck i should bounce back. I just feel like breaking this fucking laptop right now cause i just feel like everything is moving at a fast pace while I’m moving at the speed of a retarded sloth. I feel like a fucking social outcast for everyone gets along with others quite well but i just can seem to fucking function socially to my motherfucking surrounds. This is making so pissed of the i just wanna lock myself in a motherfucking cave for the rest of my punk motherfucking life. I don’t know how the fuck I’m suppose to fucking excel in my motherfucking life if i can’t make friends with other motherfuckers with the same interests. I have a many acquaintances but close to zero friends that i text or call on a daily basis. i see them having conversations with each other on Facebook about how good their life is and so on and then i try to emulate that to my social surrounding but i fail miserably. This is fucked up and i just want to just do something crazy to remove this feeling that doesn’t involve suicide, drugs and alcohol. How the fuck to normal people make friends and talk normally about normal things and hang out cause i just fucking hate myself for i just can’t seem to fucking socialise in a normal way. I am the shittest listener for if someone said to me something, i would assume something this is remote to what that person said. This the main problem for they think them I’m some kind of fucked up retard with the hearing of a motherfucking 60 year old. Anyway fuck my life why bother reading this shit, it won’t change anything.
Currently one of Australia’s most wanted man, he is the modern day Ned Kelly. After committed numerous crimes he has been on the run from the start of 2005. But what makes this man a distinct individual from other wanted fugitives is that he is a survival and stealth specialist. This mans ability to blend in with the community has enabled him to infiltrate houses and steal firearms and goods without compromising his position. His ability to build simple shelters, hunt animals and harvest native fauna has allowed him to thrive and has made him undetectable in the vast woodlands of outback New South Wales.
One the other see of the equation operation squads have received numerous sightings of Malcolm Naden but due to the vast distances, by the time they arrive Naden has disappeared. Helicopters, search dogs and various measures have been undertaken by the authorities to hunt down Naden but have been unsuccessful.
Ironically local residents have stated that Naden means no harm to the community as he takes only what he needs, but authorities are headstrong with this mans capabilities. On one occasion Naden was assisted by a rural resident as he was bogged in a ditch. It was only afterwards that the residents realised that they just assisted Australia’s most wanted man after notification from the authorities. If the residents knew that there was a 250,000 bounty on his head they would have alerted authorities of his presence.
With his Aboriginal ancestry it may be a key factor to why his understanding of the land is far greater then the army personnel hunting him down. Only time will tell whether he will caught and brought to justice.
I was having a jocular conversion with my friend during lunchtime, when intantaniously a fine young women curiously approached me and explained that she was conducting an insight in to politics in various countries. Her seeing that me and my friend were foreigners she seized the opportunity to interview and accumulate political information about our country. She began asking us basic questions without her knowing that we knew the nuts and bolts of the politics that occurs in our country. As we progress during her QNA session she realised that we understood politics and her questions became more complex. Suddenly her peers were doing the same thing as they came and took her away.
We already answered all her queries and she also managed to get my number. As she was chatting away with her friends me and my friend were comprehending the information that we gave her to whether it was valid or misleading, for some of our statements were contradictory to an extent. We had much more to say plus we wanted to start a conversation with her. She was 10 meters away talking with her friends when she took a slight glance at me when I gave a hand gesture for her to come back. She quickly left her friends as she dashed joyfully to our desk. We then mingled for a few minutes then she was on her way.
After it was over I was hoping I didn’t freak her out with my perspectives and political knowledge for I hope she sends a text or calls, for another QNA session that doesn’t involve politics…. ;)
