“I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, “aw shit, he’s up!” -Steve Baroli
We all are busy in our life, we all are living in the world of relevancy and fighting the battle of egos day in and day out, we nowadays only have time to criticise everything and everyone.
Everyone wants to feel needed and important, everyone wants to be loved and fit in a world where the so called society not only accepts them but also worship them for their greatness. Many of us are under the cloak of pretentious humbleness but what good is it for, how many days, months or years can one be under that cloak. Once stripped off, everyone will see the relevancy hungry cannibal hipster we have become.
The followers, views, likes do they really define us? Do they really define what kind of a person we are ? At the end of our life, will we remember how many followers or likes we had ?
Why do we want to grow our followers on the social media applications ? Is it for having a reach where one could change the world for the betterment of the society or for feeding and boosting our own ego or for people to know that you are important and needed by many ?
Thousands of people come and go, ever wondered why are we born or why do we die ? If god created us then why does he want his creation to die, what exactly is life or what exactly is death ? What is the purpose of life ?
No one can know the answers to these questions, maybe someday we might come to know about it.
All we know is that we are born and dying, getting closer and closer to death, so it’s high time that we stop dying and start living. We might make some mistakes in this journey called life but it’s okay as we are not meant to be perfect, learn from the past experiences. There is no rule book to life, is there?
We know the starting and end point but what really matters is the middle part where we need to experience all the possible emotions one can feel. We need to have hardships, we need to fall and get back up, happiness, sadness, love, heart break, it’s all part and parcel of life. We need to live this life to the fullest.
No one should on their deathbed regret anything about their life, whatever is said to be done shall be done. Whatever you want to to do in your life, one should work towards it and accomplish it, whatever a person wishes to speak to someone should be told to the person. Because once you start counting your final breath there is nothing we can do except regretting why didn’t we do something what we wanted to do.
We all are human beings and should live like one instead of behaving like robots. It’s okay even if we do not achieve what we wanted to in life but there shouldn’t be a regret that we never even tried. It’s easy to leave what your heart wants you to do but very difficult to live with it for the rest of your life.
Experiencing all emotions and creating and living new memories is the point of life, giving something to this society is the point of life. It is a very subjective matter with no wrongs or rights.
What according to you is the purpose of life ?
