: DREAM FOREVER➕LIVE TODAY
"Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today." -James Dean
As we leave childhood and move on with our adult lives, our dreams seem to be left behind. Of course, there may still be a lot of wishful thinking, but most of our dreams might wither and die.
The above quote embraces one of the biggest dilemmas of life: whether we should live in the moment, plan for the future, or reflect on the past? The truth is: to live a fully engaged and productive life, we probably have to master the art of all three!
Being engaged means feeling present, energized and focused, and to live productively, we need to produce outcomes that help us fulfill our dreams for the future. All this can be possible if we’re able to look at our past, so that we can transform experiences as building blocks for a joyful ride.
Finding the balance of these seemingly contradicting perspectives is one of the great secrets in life. We need to combine efforts to make sense of the past, live in the moment and dream of an amazing future.
Are we living to our fullest? Do we try our best each day to enjoy life? Did you say, "I love you" to someone you care about? Did you let your child, parents, or friends know how important they are to you? Do you dwell on your problems more than your achievements? Are you putting off that much-needed vacation until the time is right?
We’ve all had people in our lives who died long before those who loved them expected. We can’t possibly know what will happen tomorrow, so it’s vital to enjoy today. This is of course easier said than done! However, by focusing to be positive, optimistic and present, we will definitely start the process of creating instant joy.
It is time to dream bigger and live life as if this was the last day we had to make our mark on the world!
