We try to live the best life we can.
Making the right choices.
Or so we think.
Others think they know better.
They are just trying to help.
Suggest you change your ways.
Because THEY think THEIR way is the RIGHT way.
Sometimes we listen to other people’s advice. Sometimes we do not.
The truth is that in the long run, we can never be sure if we are living the way we should, or if maybe others figured it out instead.
I was just thinking about my life philosophy. Some say it is too simple and therefore silly, some think it is just plain wrong. While I listen to other people’s opinions, in general, I am pretty happy with my choices so far, and having my own best interest at heart, I believe that I am living my life the best way I can at any given time.
Being a realist, I am aware that this all might be a lie. An illusion. Maybe in a little while, I will see the light. Different from the one I think I see right now. Who knows? How can others be so sure that they are right and I am wrong?
If you ask me today if I have any regrets and if I am happy with my life, I will answer with a “no” to the first and with a “yes” to the second part of the question. But life is not over yet. The only moment that I will truly know is when my time comes.
I feel similarly about “the way of life”. How can you be sure of anything you are doing early in life? I fantasize about being a hundred years old and looking back on my life to see that it WAS a good one. That I DID chose the right path. Any and everything can be incorporated into that – lifestyle, finances, diet, family and friends, hobbies, etc. I wish to stick my tongue out at all the naysayers then. But will THEY be around then?
Whenever someone turns 100 years old (or more), we want to know their secret. Do you think they actually know what they did differently than their peers? An even more important question – Will you listen to THEIR advice? I hope to tell younger generations about my secrets to a great life, but will they listen? Probably not. Maybe because not every solution applies to everyone’s problems. Or maybe because it will be a different generation. With different problems and different perceptions.
