“Life is short. Live your dream, and share your passion.”
I’m a bit divided on this philosophy at the moment.
That’s interesting, swtspontaneous Care to elaborate?
My parents certainly didn’t follow their dreams. It’s a modern day philosophy that we have the privilege of hoping to fulfill our dreams. Life really never turns out the way one expects anyhow, so I subscribe to simply living in the moment…And even that is a privilege as plenty of people simply live for their children. Then there’s the matter of how I feel today… See my post for details…Simply divided. But then perhaps it is because I no longer hold to dreams and hopes…I hold to surges of emotions from moment to moment: a dangerous non-committal way to live.
Yes, well, I don’t subscribe wholeheartedly to this philosophy myself. Nor do I take it all that seriously. One of the lines that I question is: “Life is simple.” I don’t know. Perhaps life itself truly is simple, and we humans complicate it. But we humans are what we are, and so life is not so simple for us.
But the quote is just inspirational. It doesn’t even begin to address the complications of human existence. Hey, if it did, all our great philosophers, psychiatrists, and poets would be out of business. 🙂 I put the quote up just as something lighthearted and inspirational. – something to consider, not necessarily something to wholeheartedly embrace.
By the way, I read your most recent post. I also read your post about your traveling life having meaning. You don’t say, though, what that meaning is. In any case, that is something YOU will have to decide for yourself. Neither your father nor your mother nor anyone else has the right to tell you where or how you should find meaning in your life. That’s one of those little life’s complications that I mentioned earlier. What works for one person doesn’t necessarily (or even usually) work for another. Each person is different, each life is different. You will have to decide for yourself what has meaning for you. I wish you luck.
