Once in a while, I wonder whether I fear what I fear because I lack confidence in myself or because I lack ambition.
My boyfriend the other day asks me whether my ring finger is longer than my index finger. I just thought he was pulling something cheesy, but then he started talking about a study of successful women in the business world who all had a similar trait of having ring fingers that were longer than the index finger because it’s a sign of being exposed to higher levels of testosterone in the womb. I don’t know why I just wrote out that story, but its interesting.
But it just made me wonder, what are these women like and what other traits do they have that helped them come so far. What sort of things do they find to fulfill the maximal level of happiness?
What is my life goal? What sort of change do I find significant? What unique traits do I have that I can use to create change?
Cause it’s not about now, but about the future. I realized that after seeing a short clip of Dumbfoundead. It stunned me when he said that he didn’t see himself as a rapper forever, but he wants to do something to invest in the youth, because they’re the future. Still being in my early twenties, there’s this living-for-the-now mentality I’m slowly realizing is a wrong one to have. It just simply means to be thankful for what you have, always.
And at the end of my worries, it always ends at this.
Be thankful for what you have and you shouldn’t worry if you’re truly working with all effort towards reaching a goal.
When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are.
Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own."
