Calvin & Hobbes are all grown up – so I’ll have to grow up too…

August 2, 2011

Hey there my dear old fellows,

lately (more like always) I’ve been refusing to grow up, acting more irresponsible and struggling with myself about stuff I have to do, but I don’t want to etc. Yesterday I’ve stumbled upon several grown up Calvin & Hobbes strips, which reminded me, that growing up can be nice too :). Here an inspiration for me and my fellow-growing-up-denier:

Acceptance…

July 10, 2010

I’ve just realized that today: for me acceptance is just a pretty word for “I declare myself for defeated”.

If I accept the things, like they are, I admit that I’m not capable or don’t want to change them… And that’s just wrong, I think.

A lot of people say to me at one point or another: “You’ll see when you grow up, that’s just the rebellion of the youth, it’ll go away…” (is it a disease, or a mental disorder?) or “Once I was also young and stupid like you, but someday you’ll see that it’s senseless and you’ll grow up”.

So let me translate that (to myself): “Growing up means giving up, if you want to be part of our “normal grown-up club” you’ll have to give up and call that “grown-up”.

Well, no thanks, grown-ups, your club sucks big time! I’ll have to accept my absence of acceptance (is that some kind of paradox now or what?) and do the best of it :).

Hi 🙂

Here is one interesting “Motivation picture” from the Blog of Garry Canavan- I don’t really know who the author is, but it’s worth showing:

I really agree with it. You should never forget about the child in you and may be trough your children you’ll pass it forward…

Best regards,
