Life is simple, we only complicate things ourselves.
I feel everyone look at life differently based on how life has dealt with them. I never really knew how short and useless life was until I lost someone that meant the world to me and that was when I realized that many of the things we pay too much attention to shouldn’t even be given a second thought.
Life is short and there’s nothing we can do about it other than make sure we use our time here to make ourselves and people around us happy because at the end of it all, those happy moments is what will comfort us when it’s time for us to leave.
When I lost both of my grandparents, I didn’t really think much about it because I wasn’t close to them. They always came to visit but that bond wasn’t there unlike when I got that call from my elder brother that night that my mom was no more. Few weeks after that and I started asking myself questions like “What are we even living for? What’s the point of living?” And when I couldn’t get a satisfying answer to that question, that was when I realized that there was nothing and that was when I started seeing things differently.
Things that normally would upset me, all of a sudden meant nothing to me. Apologizing to people and telling my feelings to the right people at the right time became something I did on a daily basis. If I saw you walk by and felt you were beautiful, I would say it to you without even thinking twice about it because at that moment, all I wanted to do was spread joy and happiness. Life is short and I don’t plan on wasting my remaining days here being sad, I plan on making as much people as I can smile whenever I meet them.
And though I know that life has its own ups and down that would toss us to the floor and deal with us, what really matters is that we come out of those challenges smiling and victorious.
Always remember to do what makes you happy as long as you’re not hurting anyone else in the process.
