I’ve often wondered if I’d want to know how much time I had left here on earth. Given the option, would I choose to find out the exact number of sunrises I’d be able to watch? Would I countdown the days, the hours, the minutes, not wasting a moment of what precious time I had left? When you know your days are numbered, I assume, squandering even seconds is more than unwise.
Isn’t it funny then, that that is exactly what we do. Whether or not we know the exact amount of time we have left, we do know that eventually, it’ll run out. There’s no denying that. Then why do we delude ourselves into thinking that time is an unlimited resource? Why do we convince ourselves that what we didn’t say, what we didn’t do today, we can just as easily do tomorrow?
More often than not, you can. More often than not, you’ll wake up the next day and have another 24 hours to your name. But the problem with thinking that your time is infinite is that you don’t realize how little you have left until it’s gone. Until you can’t say what you wanted to say, can’t do what you needed to do.
As knowledge increases, complications also increase. Life becomes complicated because we try to understand and make sense out of each and everything we see, feel or hear. We over analyze situations trying to find reasoning behind it. Just let it be. You won’t find the reason behind why? yet…Why Do We Still Ask Why?
Not everyone realizes it, but life is actually very simple. We make it complicated. Not intentionally, but it just so happens that way. Emotions, we develop them. Situations, we create them. Relationships, we indulge in them unfairly. Commitments, we make them. We do it all. We are responsible for our actions, and we are the ones to blame for all the complications we create.
Key to living a simple life is by enjoying it.. to be carefree of any judgments, and living life to the fullest.
Simply Indulge and Embrace life’s complications, its the only way you will get ahead.
