Life is short and you should get the most out of it – as cliché as that, many often forget about this and instead of making every second count, they count every second and let their time get wasted.
Imagine having a life that’d only last for one day, how would you spend it? Would you stick to the thing you hated? Would you leave words unsaid? Would fear hold you back still?
Some people died young but they made their lives meaningful by holding on to what they were passionate about. They didn’t get into something to test the waters; they went into things to make waves. One of them who I admire most is Anne Frank, who died at the age of 15 when she was in the Nazi prison camp. She lived a short life but her bravery and her encouraging story lives on in the form of an inspiring diary.
“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” – Anne Frank
She’s right. You never know how strong you can be and how big you can accomplish if you stop trying.
Most of us are very lucky, we have plenty of days and years to go in our lives. If you can live every day to the fullest and just always try your best in everything, you’ll die with no regrets and it really doesn’t matter whether your life will be long or short.
If you’re desperate and feel like giving up your life, think about this One Minute Fly, and all the remarkable people like Anne Frank who died young. Stop counting down your days, make the days count.
