You were given a life. What will you make of it? Will it be majestic, or will it just be ho-hum? The greatest lives are lives that are lived with a deeply inspiring love for the self in place. If you don’t make up a dream, then nobody is going to help you live out that dream. You are the one who has to meet your future self with open arms. You cannot keep meeting your past self like an old friend whose conversational topics have long since expired.
You can keep talking to them about the new stuff that’s happening in your life, but they will only give you back a set of pre-canned responses based upon their past experiences. Face it; you are the only one who can keep your life fresh and interesting. You do this by understanding that life is not about you, but it’s about what you do with yourself. Having a human body isn’t much of a feat if you just turn into a sloth.
Take this moment and redefine what you live for. If you aren’t living to make yourself the best you can be, then you might wanna take a second to ask yourself why?
