I was once asked to give a presentation with my team some days ago. It was titled ‘Life’. I sat down with my team members in a heated brainstorming session on how to summarise ‘life’ into a 3-minute presentation. “That’s like trying to fit an elephant into a tote bag”, I said to myself.
Since the presentation was due the next day, I tried to work my head around it on my way home. I was obviously having a fair share of writers block because after an hour the notepad was still empty.
After 15 minutes, I realised the problem; I was trying too hard. “Life is easy” I said and I began to write smiling.
The Words I wrote:
We try so hard to attain perfection in life that we end up not living it. We spend quality time blaming our misfortunes on some evil being out of reach, when the antidote is simple: Live life!
Life is beautiful. This short statement has received lot of criticism as life has been termed ‘unfair’. I would argue life is fair; if everyone knows that life is unfair, that is fair enough.
Accept life’s beauty and live consciously with the goal to live happily and fulfilled and watch how the odds will continue stack in your favour.
Just like the philosophy behind the law of attraction; by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. So stay positive and life will fall in place.
As a wrap, rather than spend your time brooding over the great things you have lost in life or things you don’t have yet, appreciate the things you have.
Happiness in life is key and is not worth trading for any earthly thing. Live life. Regrets steal our joy and automatically add us to the list of those that hate life.
Don’t join them, enjoy life. A popular acronym ‘YOLO’ says you only live once, but in Mae West’s popular saying, if you live it well, once is enough.
