Letter to Myself in Youthful Bliss

Younger Self,

Life is a crazy, and equally amazing adventure. Aside from the fact that you’re hurtling through space at 67,000 miles per hour (19 miles per second), and rotating at 1,000 miles per hour on a largely unexplored blue orb in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy, the twists and turns of life make it an unforgettable ride. The truth of life is that there are no truths, and the possibilities are endless. Life therefore, is what you make of it.

Make the most of it. Plainly and simply. Pursue your passions and what makes you happy. We are all living on borrowed time, and the sands of the eternal hourglass will empty; and whether or not it will up-end in order to begin the countdown again, in the same or variated pattern is unanswered. Who are we? What are we? Where are we? Why are we here?..the fundamental questions of existence have no concrete answer.

For this reason, I can offer no legitimate advice on how to live your life, other than to make the most of the opportunity. Every day that you have breath in your lungs, is an incalculably lucky gift. Be productive, maintain balance, and keep your perspective transparent. Be open-minded, and navigate the up’s and down’s of life with an upbeat fluidity. In the end, the only thing that matters is the health and happiness of yourself, and those whom you love.

Do your best to stay present in each moment. Perceive every passing second with sensational clarity. Memories form from intensity, not monotony. Explore, pursue new things, and travel to the far reaches of the globe when possible. There are experiences to be had, and you have the ability to peruse the innumerable options lain before you at your discretion.

Choose wisely. This includes not only habits, but also the people you associate with, and the paths that you travel. This is easier said than done, as wisdom tends to come with age. But if you listen to your heart and soul, the answer will usually be clear. Stay active, learn new things, and follow your dreams. You have unlimited potential, and possess the capabilities to construct your life to your liking.

To sum it up, as the saying goes, “Seize the carp when in Rome.” 😉

P.S. Speaking of which,  take life only as seriously as it needs to be taken. Smile long, laugh hard, and don’t dwell on the opinions of others.

-Self
