Life Doesn’t Require You

Life can be your playground, if you understand that it’s a game. A game is something that you play, to win or to lose. You must be aware of the game and its set of rules if you are to play effectively. Either you play the game, or you may fall prey to the players that are playing the game. Cue “The Game” by Motorhead

Life can become your prison, if you do not have a plan for it. The plan does not have to be concrete, but you must actively seek out opportunity and execute a means by which to pursue it. If nothing becomes of that opportunity, another one will. Why? Because you’re playing the game. You are rewarded accordingly. Don’t waste any time, maximize it! Your life is simply a loan for a project. Guess what happens when you’re given a loan? You’re expected, well, you’re not immortal, you have to pay it back whether you’ve effectively engaged fruitful endeavor or not.

When life reclaims what it has allowed you to borrow, how far along will your project be? What will it look like? Will it be vivid or appealing? Did you use every SimoleonOh yea, a Sim‘s Reference– on your project, while others could’ve used a hand? Did you fixate on everyone else’s project while your project gathered dust? You must strike a clever balance.

Life doesn’t require you, but you were given it anyhow, and that is why it is precious. I am @ironsheek


About Travanti

I'm an actor, satirist (read that slowly, or you could get the wrong idea), comedic writer (contingent upon who finds my work funny), & macro/microcosmic social commentator. An alum of the University of Louisville, and Syracuse University (Newhouse Television Radio & Film M.S.)... aren't I being shockingly cavalier about it all?

  1. I cannot thank you enough for the blog article.Really looking forward to read more. Great.

  2. Sir Ironsheek – I read your post while snacking on Halloween candy, so thanks for that! 🙂 A pensive post you have here. Had a very spiritual feel to it, which you communicated well. Thinking about my mortality makes me do something productive…NOW! Thanks for the reminder.

    PS – Great posts since your return to the blog world!
