The next time you decide to leave things off for another day, try asking yourself this question. We all tell ourselves that we’ll do better tomorrow or that we’ll start exercising next week or that we’ll be where we need to be next year or whatever. We all envision the best version of ourselves and the best version of our lives, but we put it off for another day. In reality, we don’t know if we’ll have those days. We should work towards them every single day– no excuses.
When you have an argument with a loved one or you’re angry about something pretty dumb or you’re worried about who’s right or wrong, just ask yourself if it really matters. In the grand scheme of things, will this matter? Chances are it doesn’t and it won’t. We shouldn’t waste any time being angry, upset, or sad. It’s just not worth it. We only harm ourselves in doing so.
Are you aware of your mortality? Are you aware of the mortality of everyone around you? At the end of the day, we’re all headed in the same direction, to the same destination. Shouldn’t we be there for each other? Shouldn’t we be nice to each other? Shouldn’t we cut each other some slack?
We’re so much more alike than we are different. We all have the same problems, the same worries, the same families, the same needs, the same aspirations, and so on. We should all achieve to be the person we ourselves need. We should try to leave this world a little bit better than we found it. The love we want, the understanding we would appreciate, the kindness we search for– we should work on giving it to everyone that crosses our path. If we don’t, we’re only hurting ourselves.
