Living and dealing with life.
It's the little things in life that matter that makes the most impact on your future. Sometimes when you try to plan things out too long your life gets too complicated. Not that it isn't good to plan. The unexpected happiness is what you find when you least expect it. Remember, life won't be here for you to enjoy forever? Either you'll vanish or it will. With this said and imbedded in mind daily how could you not live happy with purpose.
Do you want to build walls?
"If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself; tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth it's riches for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor place. And even if you were in some prison, the walls of which let none of the sounds of the world come to your childhood, that precious kindly possessions, that treasure - house of memories? Turn your attention there. Try to raise the submerged sensations of that ample past, your personality will grow more firm; your solitude will widen and become a dusky dwelling past which the noise of others go by far away."
Rainer Maria Rilke
Get off your high horse when opportunity strikes. Explore your desires when faced head on. If, you make a choice and what you have found does not suit your fancy than get back on and take another ride. Get it? Life is like a marry go round, staying on too long will get you dizzy. When the opportunity slaps you in the face get off, and do something about it. When the voice inside says its the way to go, get off and explore your options. There is no time like the present to make an impact in your life. Every impact, big or small is living.
Some people talk about life as if it's not all fun and games. Nothing is entirely fun and games, but if you are not out there playing the game you will never notice the fun in the game,
Do you remember when you were a kid, around and around, your eyes were pealed to your passion. You never read too much into it than? What is different now. Try something, anything. Don't ponder over the outcome. If you consistently plan your future and ponder over what will be, you will surely get confused, distraught and irritated. Unless the drive is so deep within you, exploring things that are better left for the devil will devour you. Have confidence in yourself.
My grandmother once told me two important things. Leave well enough alone and if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
