Many have asked this question if you knew the exact day that you were going to die, would you be living your life differently? You don’t have to see when you are going to die to start living life. I am learning that all you have to have an honest willingness to participate in life. Everything else works itself out.
You indeed, do not have to be rich to change your life, you have to have a desire to improve. Allowing myself to explore my thoughts and feelings, for me has opened up a whole new way of living. I find that most people get stuck in a rut. At least I was stuck in a rut. When you live a life of faith, that wall around you that you put up to protect you suddenly starts to fall. Life expands, and so does your willingness to participate.
No one should live in fear of others opinions, thoughts, and judgments.
There are many different ways to start a life of self-discovery. For me, it is writing my thoughts in this blog, re-reading them, and then choosing what is appropriate for now to share and what is not. Some may find that getting lost in a good book is a good way of self-discovery. Self-discovery is the act or process of achieving self-knowledge. Self-discovery is about finding your identity and not allowing people, places, things, or situations define you.
It is so easy to lose yourself. When I graduated from high school almost twenty years ago, there were about 3 billion humans on the planet. Today, there are 7.3 billion humans on this plant. In twenty years, we doubled the number of people that live on earth. With the advancement of medical technology and increased knowledge, humans live longer. Back in the 1500’s you were lucky if you lived past 30 years old.
Think about that for a moment.
Everyone has a time-stamp on their life. We do not know the final date stamp. Today, when I woke up, I was grateful for another day. I hope you feel the same.
