Nope. This isn’t a post about getting drunk or smoking out pot like Bob. But if you are planning, go for it. And if you are already on it, what the hell are you doing reading this post?! However, you may surely find something worthy over here. I assure you. But before you read on, a quick question. What does getting high for you mean? Think about it as you go through the post. Maybe you’ll find your answer if you don’t have one.
As I sit in this pub, all by myself, writing this post, I’m high. With Sweet Child O Mine playing in the backround, and my feet tapping to it, I’m not actually high on the two pints of beer that has gotten into me till now *may drink more*, it is this feeling that has got a hold on me. The feeling of being independent. The feeling of not being under someone’s wings to go out and drink (or just go out). The feeling, of solitude. What I really wanna say is, you don’t need anybody’s approval to live your life. That’s the only thing that you have a hold on. Maybe, get high on it? Why not?! That would be the best thing you could ever do with your life.
So what does it really mean to get high on life, you ask? Well, it’s simple. Just be out there. Open and wild. Do what you love doing. Even if it means doing it all by yourself. Music, reading, travelling, dancing. Whatever it is. That is what will actually get you in touch with yourself. For real. Try spending some time with just yourself and no one else. Go out to a nice place and have a good dinner. Or go to a library maybe. Just sit and read a nice book. There’s a hell lot of things that you could do, to get in touch with yourself. And that’s what getting high on life means. There is no greater feeling in this whole wide world than getting in touch with your true self. Just let yourself take over you. And that’s when the magic happens.
You see, a lot of people think that being alone is a sad thing. But there’s a difference between being alone and being on your own. Being alone is something out of your choices. But being all by yourself, that is something you have chosen. Something that you enjoy. Loving yourself is the best thing you can do to yourself. Trust me, it is the only thing that will make you happy even if you are at your lowest. Just pamper yourself a bit after a rough day, and you are fresh as a flower.
All I want to convey is, just know that you are your best friend. Yes, you may need some people to go through life at certain different times, but at the end of the day, it’s only you who can make you happy, or sad. The choice yours. All you got to do is be with yourself a little more. Know yourself a little better. And there you would be, getting high on life. Getting high, on yourself.
P. S.: Had only two beers *sigh*. And man, I gotta pee so bad! Have a good getting-in-touch-with-yourself ahead!! Ciao!
