Forever Lazy, Never Grown

This is my first post of the new year, and I felt that starting it off with this topic was highly appropriate since there is so many people that are talking about what they are going to do this year and what they are going to change and so on and so forth. I also saw a commercial for what I consider to be the most ridiculous and brilliant invention right now: the Forever Lazy. To me, this clothing is nothing but a body Snuggie with no feet at the bottom and a butt flap for when you have to use the bathroom. Oh it is designed to be lazy all right, and there are going to be enough of these sold to keep this product going for a while, but I am fully against buying and owning one of these. I will not be giving it as a gift, I will not be having on in my closet, and I will not be talking to anybody that decides having one of these is okay. Why? Because being lazy is unacceptable, period. I don't care how old you are. Once you become of age to do things for yourself and you have the mental and physical capability to do so, then being lazy is not tolerated. Now, lounging around on your off day or down time is one thing. That is not being lazy. That is relaxing. Vacation time is not being lazy. It is used to relax and rest plus engage in activities that cannot be done during the regular routine. Again, not being lazy. Now, for those that do nothing with their day but sit around and lounge and do nothing productive or of any importance to help or contribute to their situation, they are lazy. Play PlayStation all day every day? Lazy. Always downtown hanging out with no job or school going on? Lazy. Don't even have a side hustle to make money or doing anything to better yourself? LAZY! Yes I said it, and I will say it again. Nobody around me is lazy by any means. Everybody around me works, goes to school, does both, or is trying to do one or the other. Hell I have people around me that are not doing either one and is trying to do both. They still get money. They still do things that are productive. They still take care of themselves to make their situation better and strive to have and do more than what they already have going on. They have goals, dreams, and plans with the ambition to get shit done and do things that they want to do plus the motivation to get up and try to get it done and executed. These are the type of people that I know and surround myself with. I can't stand a lazy mutha fucka for anything in the world. I really can't. Please do not tell me you are a grown ass anything and you don't have shit going on in life. Don't work. Don't go to school. No part time. No side hustle. Nothing? Nah nigga you ain't grown. I will admit that I have just gotten my own health insurance, but that was the last connecting link to my parents. Yes I have the right to say that I'm grown. I have a degree. I have a full time job. I pay rent. I pay bills. I buy the things that I need to survive and find my own way around, but I am not afraid to ask for help when I need it. If I can get it done on my own, I do. What constitutes being grown? In my opinion, it is taking care of yourself if you have the mental and physical ability to do so and not being afraid to ask for help when you need it, to do a good 50-75% for yourself by yourself. That is being grown. We all need help sometimes, and there is nothing wrong with it, but if you looking for a handout, then that is when all this grown shit goes out the window. Ain't nothing in life free, and nothing is going to be handed to you. You got to work for what you want, and sitting on your ass and doing nothing is not the way to get it. You better lit that fire under yo ass and get to it. Ladies and gentlemen that are out there looking for somebody to take care of them, please cut that out. Idk why some people think that finding a significant other to take care of them is the way to live life. No that will not work, and even if you do find somebody to do so, you better not be a lazy mutha fucka for too long because they will get tired of yo ass and leave for someone more productive unless they are just that deseprate. Oh I do not play that shit. I don't help those that don't help themselves. I just don't unless I care that much and they do not have the capability to do something themselves. Other than that, I have nothing for ya. Guess who don't give a fuck? My point is don't be a lazy mutha fucka. It's unattractive, and nobody wants to put up with that. The only people that deal with lazy mutha fuckas for long periods of time are people with large amounts of sympathy and other lazy people. Yeah and even they get tired of that ass eventually. Like that annoying ass dude in the Everest commercial be saying, get up off the couch and do something with ya life. Live everyday to the fullest, but please take care of yourself and do something productive and long lasting in the process. Don't think I know what I'm talking about? Hey man...I'm just saying...
