“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain. To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices; but today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” ~ Kevyn Aucoin; American make-up artist, photographer and author.
We all have gifts and talents, and we were given the opportunity in this time, in this era, in this life period, to live this physical life to find them in each one of us; but, sadly, many people ignorantly look for them outside of themselves, and thus they never find anything which can bring them true happiness.
But you, as an awakening and wise person, must not waste your time here on this earth, look within you for whatever is for you expressing your unique self, freeing your spirit and being truly you. That is the whole point of this life. And if you can’t understand that then you will never find true and constant happiness.
To be here on this planet and fully live and enjoy life means to be present, which means you observe before you judge and complain, you learn what experiences may want to teach you before you get angry with life, you pay attention to what is happening around you in the present moment and not dwell in past memories or visions of the future.
The reality of life is that you must be present, focused on the moment of Now; so, live and enjoy wisely, follow your goals and love without fear, respect yourself enough to give yourself chances to become better, find your true passions and gifts within yourself. And for all this, again, be present, because happiness is now, in the present and not in the past or in the future.
Whether you think of an afterlife or not doesn’t matter, your beliefs don’t matter; the only thing that matters is reality, which is that you were born to be happy and successful in whatever you choose to do; but you do have to work at it with heart and intelligence, patiently, wisely, because you have been given time for a reason–i.e., so you can regroup your thoughts, discipline yourself, and learn to create your path.
So, mind your time on this earth, be patient, do not rush into things, plan and analyze what you are going to do, but be constant and do not waste your time.
As long as you are alive, you have a chance to better your life.
