Let’s be honest. Life sucks sometimes. You have to be grateful for the things you have and the people that are surrounding you throughout your life’s journey. Most of the time we are always searching for something more, and never take the time to appreciate what we have at the moment. I wanted to talk about five brutal truths not many people want to face in life.
1.) You are going to die.
Shocker right? I feel like sometimes people aren’t thinking about this. I think about death everyday of my life. I tell people that and they sometimes think it’s weird or there’s something wrong with me for thinking that way. But, yes you will die one day. We all will. I think it’s important to appreciate what you have everyday and just be grateful for what you have at the moment.
2.) Your material possessions will most likely bring you short term happiness
How many wealthy people do you know that are depressed and lonely, but have any material possession you can imagine? I know many of those people, and I would never want to end up like that. Buying exotic cars, houses, clothes, etc. will bring you short term happiness, and then you’ll always be searching for the next big thing. Don’t get me wrong it’s nice to have nice things. I enjoy having nice things. But I realize it’s not going to make me happy. Just take notice..
3.) The people you love in your life are going to die one day too
The people closest to you in your life are going to die one day. I think it’s important to tell the people that are closest to us that we love them everyday and how grateful we are that they are in our lives. Someone can be gone in a second, and I am sure some of you reading this have experienced the loss of a loved one so quickly.
4.) Time is by far our most valuable asset
We only have so much time on this earth, and one day (we don’t know when) it will all come to an end. Time is our most valuable asset. We all have 24 hours each day. It’s up to you to decide on how you want to use them.
5.) People aren’t going to remember what you did for a living or how much money you made, but how YOU made them feel
People aren’t going to remember how many sales you had for the company you worked for. But, when you’re gone they will remember how you made them feel, and the impact you had on the world and the people around you. It’s definitely important to remember how we can add value so someones life each day throughout our busy lives.
