A few hours ago, I was at the Oracle Arena, home of the Golden State Warriors basketball team, cheering my favorite team on. I was ecstatic and pumped to be sitting amongst 19,000+ roaring fans when my friend got a text message.
It was really, really bad news.
Instantly my world froze. The vibration of the fans’ chanting faded to the sound of my heart pounding. Right then and there, I broke down uncontrollably.
Please promise me one thing – LOVE YOUR LIFE.
All of us living in this world have problems we need to endure. Every day can be the worst day of our lives. But keep in mind that no one’s issue is too small. Nothing will stay bad forever. We can always turn it around. Follow your passion, do something that makes you happy and love your life.
I, too, often struggle with the reality of life – a broken home, a sick mother, countless failed relationships…etc. This is why I work so hard to maintain a lifestyle with constant travels. Some may say it is my way to escape. Sure, it can be. But most importantly, traveling is my passion. Seeing new places, trying new cuisines, and being with nature make me feel alive. It provides a balance for me. It keeps me grounded. Most of all, it helps me appreciate life.
Through this post, I urge you to do the same. It doesn’t have to be traveling. Your passion can be cooking, singing, shuffling, blogging, or ANYTHING. Just make an effort to go do something that makes you happy. Create that balance so the inevitable negative things in life won’t weigh you down.
This is important to me because another passion of mine is to inspire. I share my travel experiences because I want to inspire those who want to travel to do it too. And now, I want to ask you to follow your passion so you can create and live a life that you’ll love.
Do you have someone you love that seems to be struggling with life? Give them a call and spend some time with them. Help them find their passion so they can love their life too.
