Thoughts on Life

Life. How do I even begin to describe this word. Life seems short, but the days seem endless. Filled with so many experiences, so many moments, so many people. Every second is valuable. We learn. We laugh. We grow. It is priceless. Sure, some days are not so good. Some days we wake up and don’t want to get out of bed. Don’t want to interact. Are afraid of facing the world. Just plain scared. Sometimes we are sad. We cry and cry and cry until it feels like all of our tears have been used up. But with these bad days also comes amazing, beautiful, happy moments. The possibilities are endless. We have so much in this world to be thankful for. Trees. Books. Music. The sun. The grass. The ocean. The rain. Hugs. Love. The list is truly endless. There is so much to do, so many new things to experience, so many risks to take and so many people to meet. People. Our relationships with other people is the most important thing in this world. Throughout our lives, we will have many different relationships with people. Some will be short. Others will be forever. I once heard that people are temporary. And that this is okay. At certain times in our lives, we have relationships that we need in that moment. They teach us something. They learn from us. They make us smile. And sometimes they leave. This is all okay. Life is like the sky. The sky is always changing. The sky is vast. It’s open and stretches so far that there seems to be no end. Enjoy life. Appreciate life. Love your life. And when you look up at the sky each day, remember that, for us, life is forever.

  1. I love your take on all the different experiences, and how life seems never ending and we're always gathering something from everything. People really are the most important things in our lives. Sometimes I think we need to focus on ourselves-people rather than others-people. Why do people have so much power?

    1. I completely agree! Although I do think that happiness comes from others, we have to be happy with ourselves first in order to spread joy. Haha even though it sounds cliche. Thanks for the comment :)
