It’s how we live that matters most. How do you live? Are you barely making it from day to day? Are you just surviving? Or are you thriving in this life? What could you do live your life to the fullest? Who could you talk to more? Who could you learn from? This life is a continual learning journey, and if you stop learning, you start dying.
Are you getting the most possible out of this gift we have been granted, or are you taking it for granted? Are you learning from the misfortunes that come up, or are you stuck thinking about them constantly? Do you allow misfortunes to run your live, or do you live and love your life in spite of what is going on around you?
The majority of people can’t say they absolutely love their life. There aren’t many people respond, “I’m amazing” when you ask them how they are doing. How do you answer that question? Tell them that you are “excellent,” even if you aren’t, you will feel better just for saying it. Love this life we have.
Earl Nightingale said, “Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude towards us.” Life loves you when you love it first. Loving life doesn’t mean everything goes exactly according to plan, and nothing goes wrong. Loving life means accepting things will not go according to plan, but not allowing it to negatively affect your life. Loving life requires living life to the fullest! This means racing towards your potential, even if you never finish the race. Very few people actually reach their potential. The mere fact that you are working towards it is what is important.
I hope you keep running the race towards your potential. I hope you suck the marrow out of life. I hope you take as many non-material things out of life as possible. Life isn’t about acquiring the material things, it’s about the immaterial that you can’t touch or see. It is about making the most out of our short campaign on this planet. Life is about being happy for the long haul. Life is about understanding stuff happens, and it’s about how we respond to what happens to us. I hope you find all the joy, happiness, enthusiasm and love that you can. That is why we are here. We aren’t here to just be. We are here to love our lives, and make a difference. It's how you live that matters most. Love Life! Live Hard!
