Life is for Living

I’m sure we all struggle through our daily lives in one way or another. If you don’t,, you’ve got nothing to worry about, but otherwise, this might help you. Many of us feel lost, empty, and ultimately unhappy; we try to make it through each week, stressing over trivial things, not realizing that we’re ignoring what’s important. What ever happened to loving life? It seems as though, in the midst of all our problems and responsibilities, we stopped enjoying the process. Through all the chaos, we lost track of our dreams and passions, and it’s about time we get them back.

Sometimes we feel like we don’t have enough time to do anything other than study. We spend most of our time at school, and when we get home, we do our homework, eat, go to sleep, and do everything all over again. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can still make room for our favorite things in life. Admittedly, spending an afternoon binge-watching a series on the couch instead of studying for a test is not particularly advisable, but taking time out of your day to do what you love is perhaps the only way by which you’ll be able to enjoy your everyday life. Go out, draw, play, do whatever you want, but make sure you’re at least devoting a fraction of your time to making yourself feel happy. 

We’re all getting tired of hearing this, I know, but it’s true: we have one chance at this life, so why not try our best at living, instead of just surviving? Why not take our time to appreciate what we have, and focus on that, instead of our problems? Now, we obviously can’t ignore them completely, but we can’t let them overwhelm us, either. Relax; it’s okay to take a step back once in a while.
