What does it mean to really live?
I've come across this topic several times. Often with motivational speeches that say "live your life"
, "it's far too short."
For me, I want to live more than an ordinary life. It may sound overplayed and misunderstood. But I don't want to merely exist but I want to live a life worth living. To me, it means taking advantage of all the opportunities that are made available to me. And to take advantage of those opportunities with a sound mind and good judgment. I don't want to be held down to the pressures and anxiety that come with society. Including, making decisions based on others' perceptions and not my own. As a young person, there are so many pressures that often bog your mind and lay heavy on my heart. For me, A lot of "really living," is the conscious decision to not allow life's failures to get you down. I take failures as lessons learned for the future. I've always heralded the principle of "living for yourself," I feel that once you know who you are not what others think of you, is when you're able to start living. I want to live the life that was created for me. My faith holds that I am living this life for much more than myself. For some people living is enjoying a great book, traveling to a new city, going out to eat, visiting a family member or even dialing a friend. Case in point, I want to live.
These are just some pictures that I found inspirational.
We’re all In search of something greater and beyond ourselves. Right?
