Where are we heading towards? Death. The ultimate truth. The inescapable end. There’s no need to be afraid, though! Not everyone remembers this inevitable truth, however. We are running blindly in a chaotic race, knowing not where we’re heading. Is this the right way to live? We might continue running in the rat race, only to discover, in the end, how the entire chaos has been futile. You might live for more than a hundred years but you’ll die for certain. Guaranteed!
If you’re healthy and in the best of your spirit, it is time you introspect and examine the course your life is taking. Are you really doing what you’ve always wanted to do? Really? Now is the time to start living, this very moment. We’ve chosen 3 absolutely great things you must give a try your hand at before you die:
1. Experience the power of love
The word “love” usually resonates with romantic relationships for most. Is it really so? Or is love a much more profound and deeper experience? Love is what drives us when times are really tough. It inspires us to keep going and is often the strongest and most powerful experience that redefines existence. Love can take many varied forms- you can love the mighty snow-clad mountains, the soft gentle breeze or the charming green of the exotic forests. Love inspires hope, which eventually gives way to growth. Growth, in turn, powers our lives. Therefore, love with all your heart and surrender. You’ll be surprised!
2. Never be afraid to take risks
Let not fear prevent you from taking risks. You’ll never know what you can do if you never try! You’ll fail, fall, and rise again. Never stop. Keep going and take risks. Remember, there’s only one constant in our world, and that is change. It is essential to push the limits and strive hard to succeed. It does not matter if you fail, what’s important is to learn from mistakes, every time. To put it in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing but in rising every time we fall”. Even single time! Come on, rise again. The world is waiting!
3. Travel the world!
To find yourself, you must actually lose yourself first! The best way to lose yourself is to travel. No matter what you do or where you live, always make it a point to travel whenever you can. The world’s a great book and those who do not travel read only a page. Travel is a great way to experience the world’s incredible cultures and their philosophies first-hand. If you cannot travel great distances, consider exploring your local area- you’ll be surprised how many gems still lie undiscovered! The main idea is to let the soul revel in adventure and freedom, for this is a great way to relax and unwind. Travel inspires new ideas and helps you truly live each and every moment. As J.R.R. Tolkien once said, “Not all those who wander are lost!”. Some find their way. What about you?
