Isn’t life RIDICULOUS?
None of us have a clue what we’re actually doing. We live in this gigantic globe spinning around wildly in some kind of solar system. We’re floating on by, clueless as to what’s really out there. What afterlife is promised. What the hell we’re actually even doing. I sure as hell don’t know.
So here are some life motto’s I live by that may offer some perspective:
Here for a good time not a long time
This has been a lifelong motto of mine that I still live by religiously. We’re living off borrowed time. If we remember how long humans have inhabited this planet, we realise how insignificant a fraction of our time is here. So make the most of now, wherever you are in life, abandon fear & just have a good fucking time. You’ll be surprised at how many doors & adventures it will open up.
Fake it till you make it
Realistically speaking, we’re not perfect. I don’t have a clue what i’m doing half the time but it’s important to have a vision. Your attitude determines the direction you’ll go, as long as you believe that you can attain it. If you have an intense desire to teach english in South Africa, or to be some badass photographer getting paid to travel the world, you have to believe it’s possible and act as if its happening. Live, eat, sleep & breathe your vision until your dreams become a reality.
If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there
I’m not really a planner of life, i’m an enthusiast constantly hoping that whatever comes my way is there for a reason. I don’t believe in too much routine, I like listening to my instincts on what feels right at the time. This is why this quote resonates so well with me…Our whole life we’re required to make decisions. Some are important, some are defining and some are simply wrong or right. We take left turns, we take right turns. We simply choose a road, and we move forward. There’s no point in dwelling on the past, there are always far better things ahead than any we leave behind. Always.
Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life
It’s a beautiful thing when your career and your passion comes together but it’s even more rewarding when you see that you’re breathing positive energy & vibes, inspiring people out there. It’s a funny thing….jobs. I always laughed at the idea of a 9 to 5 job. Sure – there are hard days like any other job, but essentially it really comes down to the fact that as long as you choose the job you truly love, it will not lead you astray. The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling. If you can’t stop thinking about it, you shouldn’t stop working for it. If it brings you purpose, don’t be afraid to pursue it.
Whatever will be, will be
Inspired by my best friend, this quote will justify just about everything in my life. Seriously. Whatever happens, will happen. You are not God, you don’t get to decide what happens. If it’s meant to be, the universe will make sure it sends you the right signs at the right time when you are ready for it. Don’t settle for ordinary, be extraordinary.
Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted
Time is fucking precious. Perhaps one of the best gifts in our lives. How we choose to spend it, whom we choose to spend it with and where is so important. It’s important to note that no one else in this life lives YOUR life except you, so you do not need someone’s validation to justify how you’d like to spend your days. Just enjoy the ride.
The biggest obstacles in our lives are the barriers our minds create
The mind is one of the most powerful weapons on earth, other than our soul of course. Bring the two together, and you are an unstoppable being. If we can change our thoughts, we can change the world we live in.
Home is where the heart is
I think the idea of one home is almost unrealistic, it’s fleeting and changes like seasons do. I don’t think home is the place you’ve grown up your whole life. I feel as though it’s where your heart longs to be in this very moment. That’s home to me.
