A Life Worth Living

If you were told you had five more minutes to live, how would you look at your life as a whole?

Would you spend it in regret?

Would you cherish the golden moments?

Or waste it in panic?

Time vs Accomplishment

Measuring life with time can distract one from a deeper connection to their present accomplishments. Not to say that time can’t be used as a motivational asset to push one to lead a better, productive life, but living a long life does not guarantee you live a fulfilling one.

Sure, life is short, but who’s to say what “life” really is? Is it just the length of time of one’s breathing, or can it be measured by the impact of the individual. The saying, “… lives on” is an example where one’s impact pushes that lifelong boundary.

Those who have made an impact to others but died young may be seen as still living. They live in through their teachings and actions.

History can attest for that.

Martin Luther King Jr’s dream lives on through the current day as people still fight for racial equality.

Hitler’s drive and antisemitic ways still lives on through individuals.

Susan B. Anthony’s strength towards women’s rights still flows through to today, pushing gender equality into great feminist movements.

Your parents and their teachings live on through you, which had impact in shaping the person you are today…

A life worth living is set by the individual’s standard, not by time. So set your standard for your life and live it daily, for even though you may die tomorrow, you may live on through the impact you have made on someone else.

One of Those Days…

Some days you wake up and the world feels like it’s pushing against you. Immediately testing you and your ability to cope with even the most simple tasks.

What do you do in this moment?

The only thing you can do…

Accept it and embrace it.

Anything outside of acceptance is on you.

How you embrace the feeling, have it be through anger, optimism, sadness, whatever it may be, can easily set the tone of your day. If you’re going to sit there and be angry at the world for whatever reason is fine, just be sure to accept that anger and roll with it the best you can without affecting those around you. The more you accept the fact that your angry, the lesser it will be as your day passes, potentially leaving an opportunity for tomorrow to be less anger filled.

The more you fight yourself and the way you feel, the easier it is for the world to win against you.

Release your feelings into the universe and clean off that dirty plate you set your mind on. Eating from a dirty plate can lead to internal body issues, so if your mind sits on a dirty plate, mental clarity is lessened, affecting your mental processes and thinking.

Don’t forget, it’s okay to have a bad day. Accept that fact and the bad day effect will be weakened, leaving you stronger and more willing to push back against the world.

The Silver Lining to a Dark Cloud.

You stub your toe, but you didn’t break it.

You got in a car accident, but no one was hurt.

Your father passed away, but he lived a great life.

Your mother passed away, but she’s no longer in pain.

You lost your job, but here’s an opportunity to find something better.

Your partner leaves you, but nows your chance to start anew.

That silver lining can go a long way and shine brightness in the darkest of places, bringing hope, positivity and possibly mental rebirth.

I’m not saying to focus only on the silver lining, but to just acknowledge and appreciate it for what it can do for your mental strength.

Appreciate both sides and universal balance will shine more than you would expect.

Another day

Here’s to the opportunity of seeing another day.

When you open your eyes first thing after a moment of slumber, some sort of gratification or thanks should be felt. The fact that you could fall asleep and never wake back up is a possibility.

A possibility many dare not to think upon.


Another day, I’ve seen many.

Perhaps more than I would have liked to see. Life plays in it’s infinite ways. The beauty of vision, sound and touch, pays in endless form.

To breathe another breath, is another step into this life: a fragile living storm.

Another day has come and it seems no different.

Menial tasks bludgeon me and feelings take over, leaving me with a body tired and a weakened mind. I wake each day and witness the core beauty of life, and say, “This is something worth leaving behind.”.

Be happy to see another day. It may be your last.

Daily Motivation

Some days are bright, others are dim. Others are rainy and some hold clear skies…

No matter the day, you are where you are.

There’s a silver lining to every moment. Acknowledge it. Embrace it.

To focus on the good is a challenge on it own, but allows for fires out of your control to be acknowledged as the beautiful flame that it is…

Perhaps a new start, or to rid yourself of something.

Learn from each bad experience and take the good within it.
