To live really live means to do what you want. To live your life. You will have unceasing discontent if you try to live someone else’s life. If you do what other people expect of or you insist of you.
If you do what makes you happy you will be happy. If you don’t do what makes you happy you will be unhappy.
And working a job, coming home, cleaning, and paying bills might not satisfy. You must live your own life. Do you have dreams of travel and adventure seeing the world? You must not settle. The world is not make-believe; it really exist. All those countries really exist; all those cities; all those people. You can travel there, you could sail there, you could fly there.
What is it that you hope to do? Is it exist? Purchase things and breath air? Or is it live and do and see and travel and meet and build?
There are things you like to do. And if you do them, you’ll be alright.
There’s more to life. There’s more to living. And most people don’t ever live.
There are people who live. And we are drawn to them. They seem magical, impossible. When all they are is alive.
