Always Choose to Live

Always Choose to Live
29-Nov

Ever since I began drinking coffee, I trained myself to drink it very slowly, because I wanted it to last longer. I thought about it- if I drink it fast, it would finish quickly. So, my coffee would sit on my table for hours, and I would end up not wanting to drink it, as it would be cold. I did this to myself until a recent realization, coffee is much better when it is hot, and once its cold, it is no longer the same.

Since then, as soon as my coffee was ready, I would drink it immediately, indulging in every single sip. The cup of coffee would last around 15 minutes maximum. Even though it lasts much shorter than I am used to, but at least I am enjoying it. Besides, I can always have a second cup.

The same concept applies to life. What is the point of living a long life, if we are not enjoying it? We encounter quotes saying things such as “life is short, live it”, well I truly believe in such sayings because it is true. I would like to make use of my life and make the most out of it. I would want to do three things while I am here; fulfill my duty towards God, leave an everlasting mark on everyone I encounter, and most importantly live.

My first goal is more of a religious goal, and a self-explanatory one. As for the second goal I have- it is something I always fear I cannot accomplish. I fear of parting one day without having inspired anyone, or changed anyone’s life. For that reason, I work everyday as hard as I can to be an extraordinary inspirer.

My last but not least goal is to live. To live not in the physical sense, but to actually live by all means. We all reach a point in our lives where we have an option to live, or to simple give in to life’s hardships and negative aspects. Always choose to live. Always choose the positive. No matter how hard life gets, or how bad it seems, always look at the cup half full- because life is precious and you’re worth it!
