Conquering Yourself

Browsing through Buzzfeed.com, I discovered an article that caught my interest. The article is about the study of our weaknesses. As human beings, we are not perfect. Sometimes we try so hard to live our lives in a certain way. Often, we lose the whole essence of life. Lee G. Lovett says

What is a life without meaning? In this busy world in which we find ourselves in, it’s easy to forget about the things that are most important. Lee G. Lovett says we need to all slow down every now and then and remember. Of course, our family and friends come to mind, but that’s not all I’m talking about here.

What is the purpose of life? Have you ever asked yourself this? Upon my personal journey of life, I believe that I have discovered the answer. The meaning of life is not about our jobs or our social status in the world. The purpose of life is actually quite simple.

All you need to do is live. Live in the present moment. One day, we are all going to vanish into the ether. So, knowing that you only have a certain amount of time on this planet, wouldn’t you try to make the best of it? You can easily begin a new life right now, a life that is lived to the fullest. From this point on, I challenge you to put everything that you have into whatever it is that you love. Don’t waste anymore time, because time is running out.

Start this new beginning, by telling that person you love them, forgive that person that wronged you, and give your best at whatever it is that you are doing. If you start to live your life like this, you will begin to notice a change. Conquering yourself, and creating your own destiny, is the true purpose of life.
