Wise Words Of A Friend
I recently had a conversation with a really close friend of mine. A special someone that I unfortunately never get to see anymore due to the fact that theres a giant ocean inbetween, seperating us. However when we get to talk, our conversations usually end up in these late night/early in the morning 4 hours long talks.
We talk about everything. He's just one out of a million; one of the few people you'll meet in life that will just easily captivate you with every single word they say. It's hard to believe but every conversation gives me so much, he's already taught me so much about life, the people in it and myself.
When we were talking the other day, we touched on the topic of what we want our lives to be like in the future. And a few questions crossed our minds-
Ever since people grow up they're taught to go to school, study hard, to then end up in a job that gives them nothing but pay their rent. I mean isn't there more to life?
Why is it so weird to others, not knowing what you want?
Why do people give you confused looks when you tell them, you don't want your life to be planned out from the start?
People associate being lost as something bad. Confusion is bad. Fear is bad. What if these things arent bad at all?
Why do we always, always have to know whats gonna happen next?
I feel like people need to start to learn that it might sometimes be the right thing to just let go of their fixed plans; let go of their ideas of what should happen tomorrow, next week, next year or even in 3 years.
Life has, and always will, turn out differently anyways. The tricky part is to understand that exactly this is the blessing we have in life and what we should be thankful for every day.
So now I feel like I should end this post with some words of my friend, that have stuck with me ever since: "Life is to precious to not do what you love. What else will you have to look back on in the future?"
