Many of us live yet don’t experience living…
I have a couple of theories why this occurs:
We either wait for nothing (i.e. – we don’t know what we’re waiting for)
or we endlessly wait for something that isn’t coming.
So we either waste our days trying to figure out what to do with out lives
or we obsess in the act of doing, busily working and setting never-ending goal to attain “real happiness.”
Neither type bothers to stop and smell the flowers.
Somebody already said: It’s not the destination, but the journey that counts!
So what about you?
Are you waiting for life to happen?
One last quote from Kung Fu Panda:
Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
But Today is a gift. That is why it is called: “present.”
My point is, stop fearing the future, stop dwelling on the past!
Stop living life like a zombie and live for something more than a brain!
What do you wait for?
Zombies wait for brains.
And maybe nothing else.
