“A zombie film is not fun without a bunch of stupid people running around and observing how they fail to handle the situation.” – George A. Romero
This is a guest-post by Melody Fletcher from DeliberateReceiving.
The world as we know it can be divided into two kinds of people: Those who go through the motions, merely existing, never making waves and content (at best) to live mediocre lives.
These individuals have lost their spark. They wander through the streets, from home to job and home again, glassy-eyed, listless, nearly unconscious and on auto-pilot.
In short, they’re zombies.
Then, there are the others, the few, the surviving humans.
These individuals don’t merely exist, they live.
They deliberately choose to earn their money in ways that they’re passionate about.
They engage with others, have deep, meaningful conversations and are always on the go, excited about their lives.
Zombies merely exist.
Humans really live.
Which one are you?
Zombies vs. Humans
Zombie: At best, you’re bored. At worst, you dread the next day and spend Monday through Friday waiting for the weekend.
Human: You’re excited about life. You go to bed at night looking forward to the next day. You get up in the morning and can’t wait to get started.
Zombie: You do what you think is necessary. You do what has to be done. Somebody’s got to mow the lawn, do the dishes, clean the house, earn the money. Life’s full of things you don’t want to do, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
Human: You’re truly passionate about your work – you’d do it for free if you had to. Sure, there are some tasks which you like less than others, but you find ways to make them fun or you outsource them. You prioritize activities that make you feel good.
Zombies: You’re worried about fitting in. You don’t want to rock the boat. What will people say? What will people think? Better not do anything unique and risk the criticism of others.
Humans: You couldn’t care less about what others think. You’ll do what makes you happy, and if they want to talk about you behind your back, you’re happy to be the entertainment.
Zombies: You commiserate with others. When you see someone exciting, your friends make statements to you like “we could never get away with that…”
Humans: You inspire others. You’re the one who gets away with what the others are talking about.
Zombies: You’re frequently bored or even depressed. You can’t remember the last time you felt really good.
Humans: You’re one of the happiest people you know. You feel good almost all the time.
Zombies: Your mood depends entirely on the situation you’re in. Something good happens, you’re in a good mood. Something bad happens, you’re in a bad mood.
Humans: You know that you can deliberately change your mood at any time. You can be in a good mood no matter what happens, and you frequently exercise that choice.
Zombies: You can’t remember the last time you tried something new or learned a new skill.
Humans: You frequently try new things. You don’t mind maybe making a fool of yourself in order to have a new adventure.
Zombies: “No”, “I don’t have time for that” or “I can’t do that.”
Humans: “Hell yes! Count me in!”
There’s Hope For Zombies
The good news is that if you’re a zombie, there’s still hope for you.
Unlike in the movies, where once you’ve been infected, you’re forever doomed to wander the earth in search of braaaaaaiiiiiins, if you’ve been living as a zombie, you have the power to change back to being human.
Nobody is born a zombie.
We’re all humans to start, but years of training can convince us to “face grim reality”, “grow up” and take everything way too seriously. And slowly, over the years, we turn into zombies.
But it’s not too late. We’re not doomed. We can throw off the shackles, denounce our zombiehood and go back to being human.
We can get back our excitement for life.
It’s our birthright to feel good, to be happy and to have fun adventures.
That’s what humans are supposed to do. And just because someone, somewhere convinced you to be a zombie, doesn’t mean you have to be one.
You Have A Choice
In each moment, in every situation, you have the ability to choose how you’re going to react to it.
You have to mow the lawn?
Grab your MP3 player, but on some kickin’ tunes and dance your way across the grass.
Or, let the neighborhood boy do it while you lay in the hammock and sip iced tea.
Yes, you do have time for that.
Someone’s got to make a living?
I know it’s scary, but there are tons of people out there who make a good living from something they absolutely adore.
Why not be one of them?
When was the last time you did something just because it was fun?
When was the last time you played like a little kid, instead of claiming you were too tired?
Your life is moving on with or without you.
You can be a zombie if you like, but understand that if you do, it was your choice to do so.
Or, you can decide to rejoin the human race, to remember who you really are, that life is supposed to be an awesome adventure and more fun than you’ve had in a very long time.
Come on. We humans are waiting for you.
