Year 2029...mid winter,

Out of habit you had set the alarm at 7:00 AM the night before...

You wake up with that very same feeling...the one you had left behind a few years ago...

Nervous...worried...

You don't even have time for a quick cup of coffee...

You have to get dressed...fast, and run to the bus stop, unless of course you want to walk all the way to work.

"Will this torture ever come to an end...?"

A whisper in your head tells you to stay there...under the warmth your blankets provide you...

All you need is ten more minutes...

Ohhh....those sweet extra ten minutes...

But a man's got to do what a man's got to do...

You get of the bed decisively...no more room for complaints...getting dressed fast and grab that sandwich from the fridge...after all, you have to eat something during that stupid 15 minute break.

Lights off...door locked...and straight to the bus stop...

You are a bit late...and you know it...

As if you had an appointment, the moment you arrive at the bus stop...

Phew...that was close...

Another day, the same routine...the same images...the same grumpy faces...

9 - 5 ...dream job...right?

You just hate it...you can't stand it anymore...

The same thoughts, while you are sitting on that very same bus seat on the way home...

"I can't...I can't do this no more..." you are whispering...

But the force of habit makes you forget all those "corrupted" thoughts the moment you are back in your little shelter...in your comfort zone...in that tiny old apartment...

It's already late in the afternoon...you can't stay up until late...limited choices...

And the same loop is there...right before your eyes...

"I guess...I have to live with that..."


The actions and the decisions you are about to take NOW, will probably determine the quality and the way your life is going to be in the future...Is that the kind of life you wanna live? Sounds deadly boring maybe?


Then act...do something dammit...

You can be everything you want in your life...but there are chances you might lose in a blink of an eye...

Dare...chase your dreams...

Chase your Steem Hive dream...that's why you are here in the first place...right?

Who knows where this path may lead you...it's a path full of surprises...and anxiety.

But you know one thing for sure...that you don't want to end up being that guy in the story...in 2029...


Showcase Sundays are a great way to revive some of your older posts either because you feel they were under-rewarded or simply because you enjoyed them back in the day.

Here for the long haul ya said? I knew it from the very first moment.

This is the link to the original post...some 432 days ago.

Have a good one people, and stay safe!

Cheers!

Sort:  

I DON'T WANT TO BE THAT GUY!!!! I dread the day I have to work at a job I hate, and go through a shitty routine.

I hear ya...sometimes tho, life has a different opinion. Well bud, I am that guy...for now doing everything in my powers to change that...

And tbh with you I think the only possible way is via cryptos. If that doesn't work well...then I can't even imagine what might.

I hope it works for you and crypto is going to be my portal to escape that possibility. I intend to get a job with my university degree but truth be told, it is more about my desire to be a lecturer/university professor like my dad than anything else. My true passion is to be self sufficient without a 9-5 and to establish something that can build a legacy for my children

My thoughts exactly. F that guy!

As simple as that.

I followed you, my friend :)

Kind of you. I hope you'll find some interesting stuff to read when you visit my blog

Funny that I read this type of wake up calls millions of times through the years but actually never really took action. I hope though for crypto and Hive implicitly to change something for the better in my life. I'm not willing to get back to a regular job. I've been avoiding that for three years and hope to become better and better in earning my living in better ways than the traditional ones I've had till a few years ago.

The funny thing is that I often write that kind of stuff so that I can ream em afterwards and and motivate myself. Sounds weird eh...?

I am not there yet mate. As a matter of fact I haven't tried an alternative way of earning my living yet...I guess all it takes for one to get there is to say enough is enough.

For the Twitterland

So much is awaiting for us, we just need the right track to follow.

Hive towards to the future!!
