Life comes and goes but it never stays for too long, truth is it is a momentary experience.
We only have control of the now and I mean only now. Not yesterday nor tomorrow, not even a split of a second ago. Our window of control is limited, but never gone as such.
Life can feel as though it continues on a cycle of bundled emotions passing in and out justifying our reality’s, however within a split of a second everything can be changed dramatically. Let’s face the music, finances are unstable, work can be uncertain even if its promised and tomorrow is a complete mystery. Even the more certain things around us which tend to provides us with any kind of comfort are not always so certain once we drill into its solid surface. Our closest of companions can have a change of heart in a moment and there is nothing we can do to change it. Truth is we are all taking a chance on life, call us chances but we are all gambling on a stance that may or may not pay off in time to come.
We go to school or college not promised a carrier but instead to open us to an opportunity to buy into the next round or to see how far we can progress. We fall in love with complete strangers that live their own internal reality in hope to connect just enough so we can have the same understandings and views on things. We study investment opportunities and stock exchange not knowing when it will collapse again and still we are unsatisfied with our forthcomings. See life is not about who will end up on top or who is destined for greatness because we are already there, the opportunities are open for all that seek. No matter what stage of life you have started from, it is still a starting point. We are all at the same position in life, clueless and ready to learn. if we start from riches or rags, an individual must be exposed to both sides of the spectrum to gain the understandings buried within the experiences.
Life is a vicious cycle of survival, even back in the B.C food wasn’t promised, shelter nor safety yet after hundreds and thousands of years later we find ourselves in the exact same situation. We hear about individuals that have it all, making the right decisions at the right time. Call it destiny even luck, but I believe they were in the right place at the right time, with the right mindset and opportunities at hand.
Tell me when it’s all set and done, can you honestly sit back and tell me that you were satisfied with your efforts during your time here on earth? Life is an ongoing cycle, there is no start or end, we feel that the days start and stop because we go to sleep, however on the other side of the world there are still people in the hustle and bustle doing the exact same thing as you are, trying to survive.
See we don’t live life day by day, month by year that’s not how thing game works, we don’t live on a quarter mile at a time as they say, No. Life is lived moment by moment. As soon as that one hundredth of a mill second has past, its gone. There is no reset button, no check point and no return. The only moment that matters and counts is the moment you are in right now. The only time you have control of your life is now. We don’t have control of what tomorrow will bring, or the mistakes we have done in the past, nor how the world economy will play out. The only power and control we have is on the individuals we are, that’s all.
We get tied down on what others think of us, the path our lives are tracking on, constantly comparing ourselves to others, how we will survive in time to come, what we said a moment ago and for what? Happiness is many things for a lot of different individuals, but internal fulfilment is much simpler to understand than we think. If the illusion of life is the total amount of time that we are gifted, but only experience a moment at a time, then we can see that our play is right hear and right now only, that’s all. To be happy and appreciative of this exact moment will be the driving force of your ultimate success and overall fulfilment.
To strategize and think for tomorrow is a must, but make sure you can resonate with it and make it a joyous experience because we need to also face the music which is that; to participate in a smooth sailing journey we must also set ourselves up for good tides.
To be constantly worrying, upset, living in regret, denial, in fear and shyness, to give up on our dreams when times seem all so hard will do us no favours. If we live life a moment at a time, why don’t we indulge within its experience during the process of it all. What’s the worst that can happen if you are working from good intentions? A momentary awkward moment? Don’t dwell too deep within the mistakes we make take them on face value and understand that they will help us grow. Take a chance on your dreams because you’re already taking a chance on life as it is! We cannot predict the future or where we will be in five years from now, even though at times it appears we can. Truth is life can change in a second and we have no control on that, but we do have control of the person we are and the actions we make in each moment that comes to pass. Once a second passes its done. When we dwell on the passed it serves us no favours, only a world of pain and for what, when we try to predict the future we are just living in a fairy tale land of fairy’s and make-believe.
The mind cannot differentiate the difference of reality and make-believe because we are social creatures, we live and experience a reality from within before we decipher and enjoy it externally, that is why when we dream it feels as though it is real. This is also why when we dwell on the past and the future we experience it throughout our body. The way we look and understand our selves in the moment will also play an effect on how we are perceived and how much we are willing to come out of our comfort zones. Understand that life’s journey is one of multiple possibility’s and many cross roads at each decision point we make and these roads don’t have speed limits or secure destinations, we are just taking another chance on life. The reality is the more we secure our experience by career, personal understanding, environment and personal growth will be the pavements we will tread on to reach our next destination. Will you choose a beaten road of darkness or a fresh sealed pavement to take you to the next opportunity?
Take a chance on life and more importantly on yourself. Remember that this moment right now is the only moment we have control over and the only time we can choose our play. Reminisce on the past and think of the future but don’t dwell to heavily into it as it is still to be written, we secure the style of future by our efforts and intentions. To experience the moment that we have now to its fullest will continue to give you a more joyous and satisfying reality. If we live moment by moment then every moment that we are living is being adding to the result of our ultimate understanding, so make it count.
Rid fear, uncertainty’s, shyness, lack of confidence and remember anyone that has ever achieved their dreams were also uncertain during their journey however they kept pressuring until it became a reality.
