Cats, Meow

Here is a small fact:

You are going to die.

-The Book Thief, Markus Zusak


Sorry if that abrupt introduction startled you; I had to get your attention somehow, you know. One day I woke up and discovered the inevitability of certain death, and that frightened me to no end. I began to feel like my time was running out. I felt helpless. But then I realized that worrying over this wouldn't change anything, and I decided to enjoy my life, however short, instead.

Many people get caught up in the hustle and bustle of working for a far away future and forget to be happy.

So take a step back.

Set aside that paperwork and drive to a nearby park.

Meditate.

Write.

Learn how to salsa.

Go on a scavenger hunt for groovy socks.

Adopt a cat… or three.

Try to devote a mere 24 hours of your life to you and your happiness, cause let’s face it;

Someday we’re all going to fade into oblivion.

Every last memory of us will be erased from reality.

So stop worrying over the petty grudges and problems of today and start being happy instead. :)
