03 Apr Too Many People Lead Boring Lives
It’s true .. Think about it … Most people wake up to go to their boring job then come home in their boring car to their boring house to watch their boring TV. They keep saying I want to do this and I want to do that but they never do it. If you are going to do this and you just work to get enough money to buy food, beer and weed or whatever you need to make you do it all over again the next day then that is pretty sad .. You might as well just kill yourself … No just kidding it is time for a change if that is the way you live your life. Did you ever ask yourself how many days an average person lives???
I stumbled on this information by pure coincidence … Give it a guess ??? I didn’t really guess as I was reading this but if I would have had a guess I would say 300 thousand days .. Man was I wrong if you live to be 75 years old you would have lived 27393 days if you live to be 100 years old you would have lived 36524 days … And during that time you are not fully enjoying life. If you are an average person you would live to be 75 years old during that time you would have slept for 25 years that leaves 50 years for living … Add to that you spend between 1 to 4 years in the toilet or it might be longer depending on which magazine you are reading … haha. You can find out other things that an average person spends doing in their lifetime e.g being angry, sad … etc in addition to how many days or years they spend doing it …
Life is short really and it is the longest thing you have so you might as well enjoy it and make it worth living …
When I discovered how short life really is. I decided to do something new every year. If I master one adventure then I might do two new things a year.
Most people will not try new things as they think they will make a fool out of themselves if they do. You need to look at life through the eyes of a child. See how they get excited by little things as they discover new things every day. Once we grow up, get a job and start taking responsibility we lose this curiosity.
Young people are so serious these days. My lovely flower and I went to an engagement party. There were a lot of young people there. They were so serious you would have thought they had the weight of the world on their shoulders. Our group was the life of the party. We were dancing and having a great time. It sadness me as people should have more fun and only be serious when required.
Work is dumb and is modern-day slavery unless you have a job that you love as in that case it’s not work. I don’t mean don’t work. You need to work as you have to have a life purpose and you need money to support your lifestyle unless you are born into riches. What I mean is the system is all messed up. It does not make sense to work all your young life so you can make enough money to retire comfortably. We need longer holidays while we are young and healthy instead of consuming all our young lives in work and only getting to enjoy it when we retire. Once you retire you have the money but lack the health or energy or both. These days you either have the money but not the time or you have the time but not the money.
Technology is supposed to make your life easier and better but these days we are trying to keep up with all the new things so it is no longer making our life easier as you have to learn how to use the new technology. Once you have mastered an area it changes then you have to do it all over again. It becomes a rat race. Why do we need all this technology to a degree which makes it overwhelming ??? It would make sense to me that the result of advancement would be more free time to enjoy life since it is so short but now you have to cram more into the same amount of hours. Do yourself a favour take a break from your mobile phone, blackberry, TV and laptop. One weekend a month turn off your digital world and enjoy nature or something along those lines.
The moral to this story if you think of it as a story is to try more new things, cram as much fun as you can into your life. Don’t get angry unless it’s worth it as you will not be living long enough. Don’t take life too seriously because you will never make it out alive …
