"Develop interests in life as you see it;
in people, things, literature, music --
the world is so rich,
simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls, and interesting people."
It's easy to forget to embrace life every day -- to take the chance on doing something you've always wanted to do, to jump on opportunities that come your way, to prioritize your own life before your work life, to do things today and not tomorrow, that right now may be the only now so you shouldn't wait until the next time. The world has so much to offer, but we often get cornered into the tiny world we've created for ourselves thinking that this world is the world. But it's not. I'm definitely guilty of it -- I constantly joke about how I'm all about that grandma life: I enjoy going home, curling up with a good book or catching up on my favorite TV shows; I get too lazy to go out of my way to do things with friends because the introvert in me just wants to stay in instead of go out. But the world is so rich and it is teeming with knowledge and experience and culture. Do what you love, make time in your schedule, find energy to do more, and don't regret the could have beens or would have beens. Life is fleeting but life is also beautiful so live in the now.
