Why live?

Why do we have to go through school?
So that we may learn the skills necessary to live a good later life.
So that we may learn a little about friendship and love.
So that we may collect a few sweet memories.
So that we may one-day realize it was all play.

And so with life.

For many, it’s such a struggle. It is so much pressure. It is also to a bit extent purposelessness. And some hurt.

And for a few others, it is the greatest gift. Life.

But what is it about them that makes their life worth living?
How do they experience life so intensely that they enjoy living?
What makes their life so much fun?

It’s often just the simple things, to be honest. All the gold in the world could not fill the soul within. The joys of life do not necessarily lie in things of great expense, but in things that make you come alive. Maybe it’s a dream, a big goal, an ideal they’ve envisioned that pushes them and makes them want to jump out of their beds. Maybe just the possibility of dreaming something fantastic and making it into a reality is reason enough to want more from life. What do you want from life?

It will give you what you ask for. What do you want from life?
What?

Life has dealt so many failures in the past. Life has put us through so much, crushed so many of our delicate dreams that we dare not ask again. We feel safe in our comfort zones and just take life as it comes, however compromising it may be.

What happened?
What happened to that 17-year old in you who could do anything in the world?
What happened to that dreamer?

It doesn’t take much. It doesn’t take much to bring the adventure back into your life.
Just ask yourself what you want from life. How exactly would you want to live your life?

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have enough time, enough money, enough resources, whatever it may be – but just ask yourself what kind of life do you really want to live?
If you don’t love your life right now, you can change it. You can imagine a better ideal and live the life of your dreams. It is possible.

Stop with the excuses. Even with the ‘how’ you are going to do it.
Just focus on your dream and let your mind flash ideas upon you!

You are NOT a powerless device, following routine, and sleep-walking through life. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. To live it as you please! Your past may not have been good, and even your present may not be pleasant, but that doesn’t your future cannot be. Take charge of your life and make things happen! Take the risks and come alive.

We have been living dead for far too long. It’s time to shed all the negativity and the limiting beliefs of what’s possible and what’s not – and live life to the full. It’s time to recreate. Recreate your life from a new perspective.

Do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Write the poems, sing the songs, go help out at the old-age homes, do whatever it takes to awaken the life in you. That’s the fire that’ll truly make your life worth living. And that, in turn, will awaken others around you. Go for life! It’s a glorious adventure.
