Life is not just meant to be lived – it’s meant to be experienced. But so often we fall into an everyday routine, where we wake up, go to work, come home, and go to sleep. We work to live on the weekends, but when the weekend comes, it seems to be over before we’ve had the chance to wake up to it.
And so we forget, in the midst of everyday life, that we have the chance to create our own lives – just as we want them to be, rather than what they “should” be, or “need” to be.
To experience life and what it’s all about, and to make the most of our time here, we need to make an active choice to do so. We cannot expect life to come jumping at us, pulling our arm in one direction or another. We have to go out there, on our own accord, looking for people, places, emotions, and fears – everything that will enrich our lives.
So make a life, not just a living. Make every moment count – in one way or another – and enjoy the journey that life is. Make the choice today, to make the most of your life with what you have. Yes, work is something we all have to do, but life isn’t just about work. There is another sixteen hours every day – one hundred and twenty-eight hours every week – where the choice is all yours.
Be the master of your own life.
