The human experience is something that each of us only gets to experience once. While we are living every day, for many days, we can never go back. What does it mean to be alive?
I’ve got a lot of questions; curiosity is how I’ve learned that we move forward. A few questions that I’ve pondered the past few years still stick out to me:
What do you live for?
How do you help others?
Why do you care?
We all come from different backgrounds, different families, living situations, and struggles. The various possibilities of how to live life are endless. At the end of our time, it seems inevitable to look back on our lives, and in a sense count all of our fortunes and misfortunes. Hopefully, we will come to the realization that all of the things we worried about, didn’t matter.
If we are active and aware of how our minds and bodies work, we do not have to wait until the end of life to come to these realizations.
Regardless of when we come to these realizations, I believe life is about how many smiles we gave out, and how many happy moments we shared with other people. I’ve met many people, and connections became much stronger once we’ve shared a story or found out about each other’s passions and dreams.
Many people my age seem to think that changing the world means making everyone see their point of view, and changing their beliefs. Or, it means changing and influencing millions, or even billions of people. These young explorers doubt their abilities if they do not improve the lives of millions.
What they seem to forget is that if one life changes, the whole world is influenced.
We often try to help and change others before we help ourselves. This route of trying to fix everyone is not as effective as it seems. We are much more credible and reliable when we know who we are before we offer advice to others. Of course, there is always help to provide, even if we do not have 20+ years of experience in our respective field.
I have yet to meet someone being impatient, and still being kind at the same moment. This blog is about my journey of self-discovery, as well as the knowledge, lessons, failures, and successes along the way.
As the years’ progress and the seasons’ change, so will the nature of this website. It is not a template, or instructions, on how to live, unless you wish to see these words that way. This journey of life is to learn, to love, and to share. Being patient builds kindness, and we are all equally on along for the ride called life. Why not make it as enjoyable as possible?
