Sometimes I just sit and think about life in general—about my life, about the things I’ve experienced, the things I’ve endured, the joys I’ve had, the sadness I’ve had, the people I’ve met along the way, the future people I am going to meet, and the opportunities I’ve had because of the choices I’ve made, or because of life circumstances, or being in the right place at the right time.
With the exceptions of one or two moments in time, I would not change a thing about my entire life—including all the negative, bad, and disappointing things that have befallen it—because I have learned a lot along the way. It has shaped me into the person I’ve become. I have become smarter and wiser because of it but I am also still learning.
Life is one big learning lesson and I love nothing more than learning new things that I know nothing about. I love soaking up all kinds of information. I’m like a sponge for knowledge. I want to know and learn it all!
Where does it end? It never does—that’s the problem. There’s not enough time in this lifetime to learn everything about life so I do what I can with the time I’ve been given and hope for the best. I love being a well-rounded individual. It’s better than having a limited mind with limited knowledge and not being able to converse with people on a variety of subjects. I’ve found the more informed I am, the more interesting life becomes.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, sit and stare for a really long period of time while contemplating your own life and how you can make it the way you want it to be while embracing the little twists and turns along the way.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Always make the most of every single minute of every single day you have been given on this earth—or even on the moon should you choose to go there. Be as happy and informed as you possibly can be. It’s your beautiful life to do with as you please. Embrace it.
