Life is not what you think it is, its what you make of it!!
How often have you heard these expressions? Where did they come from? Why a particularly skeptical perspective on life? Who says it can’t be simple? Who says you can’t consume your time on earth doing things you appreciate? Isn’t that really the thing we’re focusing on?
I hear it constantly. I see it utilized as a contention against our way of life frequently. It’s excessively optimistic. Children need to learn they can’t simply do what they need constantly. They need to become acclimated to ‘this present reality’. You can’t simply do whatever you like! One day they must grow up and fit in. Didn’t you know? You can’t simply go around being glad and making the existence you need! Hello, you may make others feel off kilter! Stop that at this moment. Fit pleasantly into society’s account of what a life should resemble much thanks.
Who says life should be hard/inauspicious/exhausting/unsurprising? We were sold the possibility that our objective was to grow up, get instructed, find a new line of work, get hitched, have children, buckle down, purchase a house, set aside cash… And THEN after the entirety of our diligent effort we could resign and have fun. Really at that time would our time be our own. Assuming you choose to part from that way, individuals attempt to rapidly pull you back into line. They disclose to you that ‘it’s not all playing around’, that you’re excessively optimistic. In any case, their view says more with regards to how they feel about their own conditions and restrictions than it does about your world. They can’t see that it very well may be unique, or that it’s alright to need unique. Be that as it may, perhaps we don’t need to follow the story we were told? Possibly you can partake in your life now. Possibly satisfaction isn’t something you need to procure. Possibly you’ve generally been deserving of it.
So if it’s all the same to you, or on the other hand on the off chance that you do, I will partake in my life now. What’s more, I will allow my children to do likewise. Beginning with liberating them from the regular training framework and allowing them to partake in their adolescence anyway they need, not how another person needs them to. Perhaps then, at that point they’ll grow up with a more inspirational perspective, realizing their life can look anyway they need it to. You can’t handle everything obviously. Yet, why not control the things you can? Life can be what you make it. You don’t need to observe the standard arrangement. Accomplish something other than what’s expected. Do whatever fulfills you.
Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just ordinary people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. … Life is like an old-time rail journey — delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.
“When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” -Steve Jobs
