A Breath of Fresh Air
Tyler Hayden once said, ~Life is like a fan on a hot day - behind it you're missing out, but in front you feel the advantage.~ If you think about it, life is in some ways like a fan or in this particular case an electric fan. How and in what way you may be asking yourself? Essentially, you want to stand in front of it rather than behind it in order to experience the pleasure of the comfortably cool air and not the hot air that's tremendously uncomfortable. In other words, when it comes to life itself each one of us want to experience for ourselves the exhilarating breeze of excitement concerning living life and not being afraid in taking some risks while doing so. What it primarily comes down to is stepping out from the behind your comfort zone that can at times be incredibly hot and stuffy, so to speak, and gradually go with the flow wherever life takes you. Without a doubt, being able to stand in front of and enjoy the comfortable breeze of living life most definitely feels good in every sense of the word. For it's certainly an absolute blast indeed as there is an innate energy felt when you step from behind the metaphorical hot and stuffy comfort zone to enjoy the quintessential cool wave of having fun, especially when your best buds/gal pals are by your side. You see, it's all a matter of perspective and having an uniquely weird/crazy/odd outside of the box way of doing/looking at things. Thinking about it further, whether its by yourself or with your partners in crime you take the opportunity to play around in a talking into the fan and trying to sound like Darth Vader kind of way, which we've all done back in the day. Hey, even though it may be deemed absolutely childish you do it regardless what other thinking because it puts a smile on your face. As I said before, you would rather in front of the fan instead of behind it so you can in all intense and purposes be propelled forward as it pertains to one's professional career. I think it's safe to say there are times where the potential of moving forward in a new career path can certainly be a scary situation for anyone thinking about changing professions and it's not as simple as pressing buttons on a fan. True, even though you can easily press a button to change the space, speed and direction of the air it doesn't necessarily work that way job wise as there are a number of options given in regards to the proverbial pace/speed/direction concerning the possibility of a career choices. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as pressing 3 or 4 buttons as we have to take into account a number of buttons to press, in a manner speaking, in considering the best decision made for a new career path chosen. Let me ask you this question to those living the single life regarding the dating scene, how many of you are standing behind the fan of your of your own heart because of experiencing utter heartbreak. Oftentimes, there's a mindset that it's much safer to protect one's self behind the fan that it your own heart and what keeps you from moving forward are the rotating fan blades of past pain. In a sense, each fan blade is considered to be a representation of doubt, anger, confusion, hatred, fear, bitterness, utter contempt, disappointment, frustration, etc. that help shield you from potentially getting hurt again. However, if you want to ever truly fall in love again you have to force yourself to move in front of/away from the hot air of painful past issues being dealt with for quite some times and all it takes is a guy/girl who has the ability to somehow circulate some much needed freshly cool air within your own heart. Chris Assaad said,~The fact is that there is an ebb and flow to life. There are highs and lows. There is bitter and sweet. There are gray days and sunny days and it’s all part of the package. If it were peaches, sunshine and roses all the time we’d probably get bored pretty quickly.~ In retrospect, when it comes to the fan of life we're all going to experience the type of glitches where it seems the soothing air isn't coming our way in form of not spending enough time with friends, not being able to find a job that's less stressful, finally meeting someone who you'll fall in love that doesn't blow hot air in your face or whatever the case may be. Ultimately, take it with stride without complaining because it doesn't help matters any. In the end, be patience for that soothing breeze to come your way and when you do eventually do experience what you've been patiently waiting for it will hit like a breath of fresh air.
