Why is it that we get to be who we are? How do we get so lucky to have been given the gift of our life and not the life of this person, or that person whom we may know or whom we may encounter along the way? Have you ever encountered that person or those people who make you realize how great it is to be you?
Recently I’ve had some thoughts about this. I realize many people this age are thinking about various aspects of their life. I have decided to think about me as a person with lots of potential left and lots of living left to do.
There is so much to learn, experience, live and enjoy! We have to just go for it! Nike created a great slogan a while back… Just do it! Maybe we need to create a slogan for ourselves.
Getting back to being who we are and all of that… Recently I have seen groups of people who seem so totally different than how I am. These people seem so disconnected with their lives. They seem to be just being and getting by and living day-by-day with no thought of planning for a bigger life through setting a higher goal for themselves.
It makes me realize that not everyone is thinking like I think. Not everyone is excited about what the potential is for their future. Not everyone even can think of their future, because they see their present as so awful.
So, how are you thinking right now? How are you thinking of your present circumstances and projecting to your future? How has that served you?
Recently I heard someone talking about, how does someone learn to run fast? The answer, just run fast? Maybe we need to just do it! Just go for it!
We’d love to hear from you about these thoughts.
