As far as we know we only have one life to live. Each and everyone of us has only one single life to live, realize this, you are not coming back! We only have have this single life to achieve whatever we want to achieve, to do whatever we want, to have, to be…whatever we want. Why would you spend your time doing something you hate? Truth is there is so much opportunity out there, the world is full of opportunity, you can learn absolutely anything you want, anything, the world’s information is at the tip of your fingerprints.
The odds of being a human being are 400 trillion to 1! How crazy is that? its amazing that we even have a life to begin with. So set some goals for yourself, and genuinely do it for you and not for anyone else. What do you want to be? What do you want to create? What goals would you like to achieve? What do you truly want in life? these are the questions we should be asking ourselves daily, no matter how ridiculous they may seem to others, or even ourselves.
I think the purpose of our lives is to be happy! I mean, what else could you want? Material possessions, fame, loving relationships…..although we may think that these things bring us happiness, I really don’t think they do. I think happiness is just having an absence of desire, and to be completely satisfied with what we currently have. I am not saying it’s bad to have goals and dreams, in fact you should, I do and so do millions of people, but don’t obsess over these goals thinking that you’ll magically become happy when you achieve these goals & ambitions. I also think enjoying the process is very important. Let’s say your working towards a certain goal, you work hard and sacrifice a lot towards it’s attainment, but are you actually enjoying the journey? Realistically, to achieve an ambitious goal will take years, many years, and if your not enjoying the process & the journey in attaining that goal, then whats the point of doing it? Ask yourself if its something you truly want to do and achieve in the first place. Like I previously mentioned, if your striving to achieve a goal because you think it will bring you happiness, then I think you need to rethink and ask if its something I genuinely want to do.
In the end, our actions don’t really matter that much, we only live for about 80 years or so and the universe has existed for billions. We are just a tiny mark in the vastness of the universe. Why care so much about what other people think? Do what you want to do and have no regrets, be present and enjoy the moment, it’s the only time you ever have, don’t stress too much or worry, in the end it doesn’t really matter. I don’t know much at all, I’m just trying to figure everything as I go along, and I thought it’d be cool to share my thoughts. I am not perfect, I have many flaws, but as long as I am improving and learning that’s all I care about 🙂
