Are You Living The Life You Want?

Unholy Confessions

Friday we had the whole, “The world is ending, Oh my god, what are we going to do”, thing.

But it got me to thinking about how susceptible we are to things we read, see and watch. I know people who missed work because they honestly believed the world was going to end. Is that really a way to live your life, is that living at all?

Every one of us goes through our lives living each day, but do we actually live? Are we doing everything we can to enjoy every day? I doubt it. We may think we are, but more than likely we’re going through life flubbing through it, only doing what we have to do.

What about doing that which you want to do. The one thing you’ve wanted since you became a grown up. When are you going to do that? Are you still going through life trying to figure out when you have the time?

Life doesn’t wait for anyone, I’ve learned that with my writing. If you don’t start what you want now, regardless of where you are on life’s path, you’ll never get to where you want.

Starting from now is when to do what you want, this moment. Every second you’re not doing what you want is a wasted moment doing something you don’t want to do.

Life doesn’t keep time, it only cares about the passing of time. If you’re time is passing faster than you like, slow it down and do what you want to do.

Create something, make something amazing. Do that thing you’ve always wanted to do with your kids. Make plans for that one trip, that one experience your kids will always remember.

If you’re still reading this, you’re not doing what you need to. You’re still staring at what I write and not doing what you it, which is what you most want in the world.

Are you living the life you want? Answer in the comments.
