WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN LIFE?
WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN LIFE?
How much time do we have in life? No more, no less than we were supposed to. No one knows exactly how much. You can live a very long or a very short life. You can live your life well or not so well. It is your choice and no one can take it away from you.
We do plenty of things. There are so many activities, tasks, responsibilities, journeys, events better or worse. It is such a strange, unusual, chaotic mix – our life.
There are plenty of pieces building up this structure. They are very different. They have different weight. It is our choice what we do with those elements. To some of them we give more attention, some of them we take lightly, and some of them we just forget. Choose wisely.
Family and friends.
When you are born, you are among other people. You live among other people. They say you die alone. I don’t believe that’s true. At least, not for everyone. When you are surrounded by people your whole life, when you seek for their company – they will be there for you. You need to be aware that if you never answer your phone, there might be no one calling you when you are old. When you don’t care about the others they would not take care for you when you need them to. When you take care of your children and grandchildren, they will be there for you when you are old. You can’t go around. If you were “always too busy” grandma before, you should not be surprised when your grandchildren visit you twice a year. You reap what you sow.
Each of us has different talents. Some are more talented, some less. But it really doesn’t matter how talented you are. What matters is what you choose to do with your talents. You might have been talented in math or sport or dancing. Maybe when you were in elementary school you have been good at drawing? Till this very day you like to take out your drawings and remind yourself how everybody used to say “you are so talented”. Okay but that was back then, what’s with your talent now?
There is this saying “As many languages you know, as many times you are a human being”. I believe in it. The world is so diverse, full of amazing tastes, places, stories, customs. Feel it. It is impossible to get to know every culture, poem, song. You can’t climb every mountain and feel all the seas and oceans, but…it’s worth to try. Be curious.
There are plenty of opportunities around you. All the time. Sometimes you let them pass you by. You need to catch them just like butterflies in the net. Not everything will turn out to be a great success. You will probably fail many times, but then other chances will appear. Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid of not taking opportunities. If you let them pass you by, they will eventually stop appearing at all.
We live for something. What is it? I don’t know. I don’t know what is your aim in life. Maybe you need to set your goal for yourself. But you need to live for something. Leave something behind you. Become someone – a great writer, an outstanding actress… or a loving mother. Be a great friend. Be really good at something.
There is way too much evil in the world. It is visible, loud, flashy. But there is also good. And good can overcome evil. Out of something bad you can always make something good. Evil can be defeated. Bring more good things to your life. Smile honestly for no reason, just like that. Say “thank you” to the lady cleaning up the street. Give your seat to an older person in the tram. Forgive your enemy. Help your friend. Don’t expect anything in return. It will come back to you anyway. If you do good, the good comes to you.
