Today for a post of “Navel Oranges Music Project” I chose “Tomgang” by Shaka Loveless. It’s a Danish reggae song about idling and it got me thinking about my own life. There are so many distractions I have in my life that keep from from accomplishing my goals. It’s as though I put these distractions in front of me to sabotage doing what I love. I’ve been spending too much time “idling”.
For example I love the Danish language and I always seem to need to do something else. Like walk over to the store or go cook instead. It prevents me from doing what I love! All I would need to do is sit down and study but instead I fill myself with distractions. It’s simple and obvious at the same time.
Sometimes we place these barriers in front of us for no apparent reason. Sometimes it’s to avoid doing something that we don’t actually over or because we don’t really know what we want to do. Right now I know that I want to be studying Danish, so I’m going to start removing these needless distractions.
Think about your own life. What is it that you want to accomplish? Maybe you have some art that you’ve always wanted to do or a vacation that you’ve always wanted to go on. What is it that is keeping you from doing it? Is it something you have control over? If you do, then change it! Who said you can’t do what you love?
In the comments below, tell me what it is that you really want to do and how you’re going to make it a priority!
