Please don't take this post wrong, because I know that life throws us curve balls all of the time and I am not even sure that I am going to be able to get across what it is that I am trying to say here.
I have been reading a lot of novels that are based in the past. Like the 10th thru the17th centuries. I think about these people and how important their rolls were to the people around them and then 2 generations later, Pfttttttttttttt no one really even remembers them unless they play a part in the history books. And even then, they are just a name, a product or a story. It makes me feel small and wonder what life really means if we only have a few short years to "feel" and then we just don't exist any more.
Like that song "Don't Blink" by Kenny Chesney. Trust me, 100 years goes faster than you think.
It is so true that the only thing guaranteed in life is death. We have approximately 100 years to live this life if we are lucky. To be something or someone to ourselves and people around us. In the history of the world, that is so miniscule! I know that this sounds morbid and possibly depressing, but take it for what it is. A wake up call to me and maybe some of you!
By the way, when I refer to "we" I mean "me".
We put way too much emphasis on shit that doesn't matter! We need to live life doing something, anything that makes us happy. We need to stop worrying about what we can't control. We need to stop worrying about the future and live our best "today". I know it is easier said than done, but really think about it. We only have a short amount of time to live this life that we were given, so we need to do what it takes to make every single day count and be happy.
In 100 years, no one is going to remember that you had 500 one night stands in your lifetime or if you tried every drug out there. Sadly, no one is even going to remember if you helped thousands of people out of poverty or built a school for the needy. No one is going to care if you were hot, ugly or creepy. We won't matter 100 years from now, so let’s not worry about it. Let’s be happy today!
Think about it. If sleeping with that guy/girl makes you happy today and it doesn't go against who you are or what you believe in and doesn't hurt anyone else, then do it! No one is going to care or remember it in 10 years and especially not in 100. And if they do, well, they will be dead too, so again who cares!
So really, we need to make today the best it can be. We need to take advantage of what makes us happy. If we live our lives blaming, complaining and angry, we are only wasting our short time here. We are just wishing our lives away!
Does this make any damn sense?
