What is life all about

“One day your life will flash before your eyes, Make sure it is worth watching. “ – Gerard Way
First of all, I’d like to tell you that there’s no good or bad in this world. It’s just people. And what they do. And what they say. And what they write. And what they choose not to do or say or write.

It’s that simple and that complicated.

It’s just the things that we do for us and the things that we do for others.

It’s what we’d like to be and what we really are.

It’s words versus actions.

It’s courage and faith versus fear. Versus over-thinking. Versus the sense of being irrelevant.

The idea that one man can only accomplish so much in the time that is given to him.

The idea that other people have been “blessed” with better looks, more luck, or the proper connections.

It’s about comparing yourself to others.

It’s about pursuing happiness instead of creating it.

It’s about becoming the person you’ve always wanted to be instead of trying to find that person.

It’s about the power you have.

It’s also about the power you choose to give away. To others. To the past. To the future.

It’s about going to sleep late at night, no matter how scared you are of nightmares. It’s about waking up in the morning, no matter how scared you are of your dreams.

    “It’s about the power you have”. Indeed, we are all bestowed with power from creation. We only have to look inwards to discover we’re as powerless as we think.
    Keep inspiring!

    Well said, as I mentioned to a youngster, your friends will change as you do. You will discard and pickup throughout your life. Pray that those you choose to keep serve you for the better.

    I have a different opinion about your thesis statement. But that is neither a good nor bad thing.
