Procedure

Just following the rules. Going by the book. Doing as you're told.

Where's the fun in that?

You know, I've never been one for doing things the way someone else or society tells you to do it. That only you yourself can decide how to live. How to react. How to be.

It amazes me how much of some people's lives are consumed by some sort of order. Due to someone else imposing rules on them.

And these rules dictate everything.

From whom they date. Whom they are friends with. What job they have. What clothes they wear. Probably even when they should sleep and how much.

Why can't we all just do what we feel? Just act on emotion. Instead of wandering around like fools, slaves to a book instead of what should be driving us.....

Almost sad.

But I guess that's how it goes. We as people have to follow the rules.

Rules that someone else made up.

I say, less of by the book. More fun. I bet people would enjoy life.

Instead of forgetting to live it.

Because people get hurt that way. I think Voltaire said it best, "Your right to swing your fist ends at my nose."

Hurt. Pain. Suffering.

Noticing a theme.

I'm not proposing intentionally causing pain...Just. Listening to our hearts and souls.

Listening to our hearts and souls is always a good thing - what do yours tell you?
