Here I sit at my laptop typing away to the sweet melodic vocals of Ed Sheeran.
Due to recent events that have occurred, it has caused me to reevaluate many aspects within my life.
Within the past week, a very valuable member of my school community has passed away abruptly. Of course this brings a sense of anger and despondency from others close to this said person.
Today whilst sitting in class, my teacher came forward clearly desolate about this news. As she spoke to us about the importance of living our lives before it was too late, the realization of life dawned upon me.
We all live such a limited time upon this Earth. No matter who you are, no matter how much money you make or what your social status is, we all will eventually die. It is a rather morbid and morose subject to address, but it needs to be done.
Within my life, a few people have entered and have played a pivotal point in where my life may be heading down the road. One must not be frightened of the future, we must embrace every second of our lives and take into account all the finer points; because you will never know when it will be your last chance to do so. I have a problem of evaluating my life to such an extent that it brings me uncontrollable anxiety. We all need to work on planning for the day as it comes. Of course, we can look forward to the future and make some long term plans; but if these plans do not go as intended, you must step forward and carry on. You will not move anywhere in your life with drawing back negative and terrible memories.
When you die, would you like to be remembered for how much of an amazing person you were/are, or would you like to be remembered for how long you sat in your cubicle and filed reports?
Take that leap, take an adventure, take that last shot of Jager, enjoy nature often, and live to your hearts content. There are many more important things to do in life then to live it remedially. Of course work and education is highly important! Do not get me wrong, but it is just that one needs to live their life to such a large extent, that they will never fret on the what if and buts of what could have happened if they chose to take that leap. You may achieve success within your place of employment by putting in those extra hours, but by doing so you sacrifice your own feeling of self success.
Everything has limits, and I suggest that you find your own. There is a difference between living life to the fullest and living life stupidly.
This has all basically been some rambling babble, but I hope that it has all made sense to you.
Live your life, and do not waste any single moment. Do what makes you happy, and never stop chasing your dreams.
