The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

The short game

Sometimes, I’m envious of people who have 5 year plans, long term goals. I am a person who lives for the moment. No plans for the future, I don’t even have a life path yet. Going where life takes me is basically what I do. I guess I’m a whole lotta Pinoy in that sense of the bahala na thinking.

In that sense I am all about the short game. What’ll make me happy in the moment, I’m there. No thinking of the long term effects, no second thoughts of the pain that it’ll cause in the long run. I live in the now. Trying to justify this with the adage that says that “Life is just a series of token moments” or something like that.

I should be better at planning. Better at the choosing. There is only so much I can chalk up to the foolhardiness of youth, and my friends are getting better at reminding me of the mistakes I’ve made this year.

So you, dear reader, are you all about the life track? Or are you a short-game-what-will-make-me-happy-right-now person like me?
