I’m 23 and I could die tomorrow and be totally content with the life I’ve lived.
I find this rare. I do not find many my age who believe the same; they have so much life in them they have not lived. So many ideas and dreams and aspirations…and they haven’t even brushed against one of them.
I have been given and I have lost. I have labored over and exerted effort and energy I never thought was in me to be where I am today. I have experienced. I have personally met, witnessed, and explored different parts of the world.
And the greatest: I have impacted. I have been told directly by people that I have changed their life.
That has to be the greatest feeling in the world.
I could die tomorrow and be totally okay with the life I have lived. And it makes me SAD that so many will never be happy with what they have. My dashboard and IG is filled with Helvetica captioned photos and famous quotes about success and “one day…”
I do advocate pushing the limits for yourself- seeing what else you’re made of. But never allow seeing what you’re made of an possibility of the future. Don’t let the idea of “someday” rob you of what can happen today. And prune those out of your life who never let you feel like you’ve done enough.
Step away from the computer screen for a bit. Put down that phone. And go do something.
