I have sat around for so long now, waiting for the perfect moment to do stuff. Waiting till I finish classes, then finish exams, then finish holidays… you get the picture.
We are always waiting for THAT PERFECT MOMENT when the universe is aligned and you can finally do what your heart desires. Maybe your waiting till you a little bit old, a little bit wiser, a little bit fitter, a little bit richer, a little bit more free with your time or have a little bit more friends to keep you company.
The truth is, no matter what ‘conditions’ or ‘ultimate reality’ we strive for, we will never get there. Reaching your perfect life is impossible. It’s a false reality, always striving for something better. Always living in the future, living in your future self where all your dreams come true and your finally happy. Because once you do reach your ‘dream goals’, new goals will take their place, you will still be thinking about the future and how much better it will be.
Now this post isn’t all just doom and gloom. The good thing is, we can change. We can change the way we view goals. Change the way we live to be more present instead of striving and living in the future. We can put our foot down and actually start doing shit TODAY! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have enough money, enough time, or whatever you excuse is, START SMALL. You are fully responsible for your life. You are in charge, and can change anything you want or make anything happen.
Don’t seek your happiness from chasing the never ending goals. Don’t have the mindset that you will ONLY be happy when you achieved you dreams and desires.
We must learn to live in the present. Its the only thing we can change.
I know this is a common thing people say, ‘be present’, blah blah blah. But truly, it’s the only thing EVER, IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE that you can change right now.
Getting your head around this concept is also quite a task. Once you come to the realisation that reality is present, magical things will fall into place for you.
The more you live in the present, the more you will actually be living. The more of life you will get to experience and the more things you will get to do.
