I want to take this time to talk about epiphany that I have had in the past few months that I believe that I needed to have sooner. Why rush? I think about all the crazy shit that I have done in life, and here is my advice. Don’t do what I did!!! I hear people saying YOLO, and right before I slap their knitted hipster hats off their head, I think about that little saying. Do we really have to rush through life to enjoy it? We are constantly thinking about what is going to be the end game of a situation and about the journey. I think a lot of people need to realize that it is a marathon and not a sprint. We are always more worried about getting to the point that we forget how special the journey truly is. I think one day we all need to just have a day where we put our troubles in a bag. Sit and take a deep breath and enjoy the day. That is what is wrong with some of us. This past week has been very interesting in my life. I have had a lot to think about in the past 7 days and I truly needed it. I think we all have to do that just once. Because it is your life, and you can have it Any Way You Want It. See what I did there. It’s a Journey song.

About the author

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
