I found this poem on another site and it was profound to me. Why do things that you don’t love? I know that sometimes you have to do things because you need to in order to survive. Well that shouldn’t be all the time. You should strive to be yourself and do what you love. Now you do have to make some kind of living. That is what this society is all about. That means you should make the living being and doing what you love. If you love writing – write! Love fishing – do something with fishing! Love outdoors – do something that has to do with that. I am sure you get the picture. Live life to the fullest and savor every moment. Life should be a joy and not a burden. If you are just existing then it is time to change. Change and become the true you or who you want the true you to be. Read and enjoy this poem. Live long and prosper!
“This is your life. Do what you want and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be
waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analysing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Life is simple.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people,
we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and
share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you
create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.”
