Life is full of risks. There are those we can plan for and those that just happen, changing our lives forever in the blink of an eye.
Think about it, life can provide us goodness and opportunities, but it can also provide us misery and unhappiness. What I’m trying to say is, life is unpredictable and for that alone, it can lead to unexpected events. All this to say that my life has changed dramatically over the years.
Growing up, I always wanted to know my purpose in life. I remember asking my parents the question, “What is my purpose in life?” And their answer was, “It is not up to us to know your purpose in life, it is up to you and only you will know the answer to that.” But this has made me reflect deeply on the subject for a very long time until I finally knew my purpose life. Because you see, the best two days in your life is the day you were born and the day you knew why.
Throughout my life, I have learned so much from my parents and I couldn’t be more grateful. If I can recall the most important thing my parents have taught me about life, is that life moves pretty fast. At first, I didn’t understand, I thought that I would remain forever young, but later on, I realized that it wasn’t true, and the next thing I knew was that I was no longer a youngster, but a teenager.
Growing up as a teenager, I remember asking myself these questions:
Will I be successful in life? Will I have a job? Will I be married? Will I have a family?
All great questions in which I’ve asked myself, and I’m sure many of you have asked these yourself, but is there an answer? For me right now, I don’t know the answer, I believe that only time will tell you. Over the years I’ve learned that one cannot be focused on the future but be focused on the present. Time has changed and will continue to change for as long as we live on this Earth.
So in the end, life is the greatest gift one could have, and because of that, you should appreciate every second that goes by. Like I said before, life can be unpredictable, things can go wrong and things can go right, and in most circumstances, you never know when or how it may happen, but regardless, find your happiness in today and not tomorrow. Live life to its fullest, and focus on the positive!
Life can change in the blink of an eye, so make the most of it.
