Do you think that it is important to take life very seriously?
Taking everything to the extreme is rarely a good thing, but if you think about it, some things in life at some stages of it should be taken to the extreme especially when you have people you care about relying on you. But too much of this could send you spiraling down on top of everything you have built. The best advice i can give you is take things as they are and take them moderately. Things meant for you will come your way in their own time, and that is when you get to give it your all.
No. Simplicity and moderation is what makes a man balance and complete. Jesus lived a simple but blessed life with a few needs for material things because he knows that this life is temporary as life on earth and in the flesh has to end as so willed by his heavenly Father and that he has a mission to fulfill for man. Many people may have so many possessions in life but soon, death will catch up on them and these will all be useless if they do not open their eyes to the truth in Christ's words, that man cannot live by bread alone but by the words that come from the mouth of God, as in Luke 4:4. The more you pressure yourself with material things in this life, the more you may find life miserable for you and your love ones. But the more you live a life of love for others, being prayerful as you are joyful in God through Christ Jesus, the more you have peace and happiness in this life.
I lived many years very seriously and found myself in the end with a full breakdown, suppose because I am a Libra, I now am the complete opposite. The three greatest changes this created is I never have a need to be right, I work at holding no expectations and laugh at myself, making myself my biggest fan. It has been a huge reflection in my writing as well.
No! And it's just as important to not take questions seriously
There are situations in life, I feel we need to treat seriously, especially in relation to what we want to leave for future generations. Being Irish, I have grown up with a sense of humor. I find this is a blessing when facing life situations. I am also an optimist and a great believer in God's providential care.
Seriousness is solidity and death.
Importance is selfishness.
Love is not important; it merely IS.
Responsibility is not important; it merely IS.
Importance causes problems, because it comes from the ego. And ego is the heart of selfishness -- the root of all evil.
Take some things seriously, but always make sure you have a good time and that everything you do, say or think is valuable or amusing in some way, shape or form. Only live once, make the most of it! *Eats a baguette*
No, I think actually most things in life should be taken lightly, otherwise one never relaxes and worries a lot of times for nothing. There are many things in life one cannot control and to take life very seriously means trying to control everything, but if you can't, where does that leave you, tired and frustated at the end of it all, where you could have enjoyed yoursel a little more if you just relaxed. Now, the problem with my reasoning is this: I say this, I know this, but I find it hard to turn it off and I find myself taking life seriosly. So...
there are some things i am deadly serious about, like my relationship with my GOD and the way i treat other people...but for most things i am easy going and do not take things so very seriously. i admit and accept that i am not in control of my world, and i am adventurous, so i tend to go with the flow of things and enjoy life and its many, many adventures.
I just took out my planner for 2012..and then I realized what Mia Farrow asked in The Great Gatsby.."What do people plan?"...
We live life one day at a time..and if we were trained like a Samurai trains, or a Zen Master trains..then we live one incoming breath at a time and we die one outcoming breath at a time..
Since one can only truly live one day at a time, provided we are allowed even that, then there is no sense looking past the moment one is in, and trying to gain the most from it.
seriously for essential and necessary things to be done, then let's have some fun.
to an extent...
whether you realize or not your life impacts those of others. the way you treat someone has an impact on another life and that causes a ripple effect. kindness often (not always) causes kindness to ripple down or up which ever the case may be.
the reverse is true as well. ugliness many times causes ugliness to spread. however, it can stop with YOU.
if you encounter someone who is terminally unhappy,you can say something that may change their day...it may not, but there is a 50/50 chance it will. And isn't it worth the gamble?
Personally, I would much rather be in the car next to someone who has just had a positive encounter with someone else.
so that part of life...the interacting with others part...i take seriously.
the being responsible for others part i take seriously as well.
if you have children in your care or if you have elderly relatives, parents, grandparents it is important to take that part of your life seriously.
B U T you should also fill your life with humor and joy and do things to keep you mentally, physically, and spiritually healthy.
That all depends on what you mean by *seriously*...?
Do you mean to make something - do something useful with your life? Yes.
Do you mean to make choices that impact others wisely? Yes.
Do you mean to be kind? A good parent? A good person? yes, yes, yes...
It DOES matter. Having fun matters. Everything either MATTERS...or nothing matters. No Grey areas.
I say go 50-50 and look at what the circumstance demands. I can't possible go teach a class dressed in slacks but at the same time can't wear a suit to a outdoor game with friends.
life should indeed be taken seriously. However, it is important that you take a break, laugh as if you don't care about the world and then back to business. Life is like a food well cooked. It should have all the ingredients in the right amount.
Dave Matthews said it pretty spot-on...The way my world has been shaped in the past 15 years or so...I can only live for the day. Good Hub!
To a certain extent, yes. It's important to make sure that we're being responsible adults-- paying our bills, being respectful of others, etc. But, if you take life too seriously then you'll never allow yourself to have any fun. I think that life is about finding that middle ground. The place where you're behaving responsibly, but you're also finding time to "stop and smell the roses."
Life is not easy, we shall not like a wound-up clock. be sure to relax sometimes.
Why not take seriously?
Think you are only for you,
you are only for his/her who love you very much,
you are for your family,
you are for your friends,
you are for your society,
you are for your country and
you are for world.........................
Certain beliefs and morals should be taken seriously due to them being very important for you and your life and existence for survival on the planet!
Other certain things
eg"what other people think and believe shouldn't because they are separate to us, and that is for that person as long as that is not affecting your life and happiness!
What do you believe Earl?
Yes it important to take life seriously so we could make it back home to the spiritual world.
