What Makes Life

Are you standing like a rock overlooking everything?

Are you wondering is this the best that it could be?

Is this the best that it could be? Is this the best that it could be?

Why are you so sure of what you cannot see?

There is more to life than just the obvious, the observable

What makes life what it is is not the forgettable.

What makes life what it is is the beauty all around,

Invisible but to those who choose to look above the ground

Choosing to endure is one of the hardest choices

Choosing to see makes one free

Being free is the way to be

Yes, life is a matter of choosing to see

There is more to life than just the obvious, the observable

What makes life what it is is not the forgettable.

What makes life what it is is the beauty all around,

Invisible but to those who choose to look above the ground

Every moment could bring anything

Every moment is a chance to be free

Every moment you can choose to see

Life the way it is meant to be (Free)

There is more to life than just the obvious, the observable

What makes life what it is is not the forgettable.

What makes life what it is is the beauty all around,

Invisible but to those who choose to look above the ground

What makes life

A Note On Prioritizing

These days, everything is vying for our attention. Our immediate surroundings and, debatably equally, the whole world via our technology. Work, family, television, incoming calls, to-do lists, news, music, games, friends, weekend plans, emails, and much more can capture our attention at any given moment. With only so much time, it is important to focus throughout the day on what deserves your focus, and not on what doesn’t. Now, please don’t confuse this with discerning the distinction between want and need. Yes, that is important, but not the whole story.

I’m sure you’ve heard about balance. It’s important to balance priorities, do what needs to be done, and make time for family. Just as important, we must put aside time to care for ourselves, and realize that, sometimes, taking a step back is more important than continually pushing forward.

In short, stop and compare the things that are vying for your attention and determine which of them is more worthy of your time. Now, this will be different for everyone. Everyone has their own unique life experiences, values, and personality that uniquely determine what is ‘right’ for them.

So, ultimately, you are the only one that can truly tell you ‘which is more worthy of your time’.

A Dose of Inspiration

It’s commonly mistaken; taken some me time is inconsiderate, especially when this and this needs to be done. This couldn’t be further from the truth. For one, stepping back and recharging ensures that you can get the job done properly (have you ever heard of burnout?). It is not a luxury, it is a necessity; self-care is important for sanity (that about sums it up). In this modern world, it is hard enough getting from A to B every day all the time while juggling many different priorities. Yes, the show must go on. This is can be interpreted many different ways, however. ‘The show’ is your life. With a little bit of self-awareness, you can direct ‘your show’ and the direction it goes it. You can’t control life, that’s a well-known fact, but you can control how it effects you and how you react to it.

“Growing into your future with health and grace and beauty doesn’t have to take all your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.” – Victoria Moran, Author
