It's not necessarily always about power. I believe that the root reason behind a lot of society's most absurd actions comes down to the concept of control. Everyone wants to stay in control of their own lives, at the least. It's when we lose control ... of love, career goals, family relations, friendships, and life as a whole... that the most immense underlying human emotions are triggered. That's when we feel all that we possibly can feel...
Anyway, there are two things in life that we can't control.
Not just the duration of hours in a day, but every quality moment of impact in your life that goes unforgotten.. every memory that your brain decides to treasure or to bury. With time being irreplaceable, the way you spend your days becomes so unbelievably significant. Time isn't just money. It's valuable beyond belief, which is why I like to live in the moment. If you live as if there is no tomorrow on the regular, you'll wind up being more productive and appreciative of your life. I'm not promoting constantly busy lifestyles. I just like to stay on the go yet still make time to take a few breadths of fresh air to smile at the world and enjoy my life.
The other uncontrollable thing worth mentioning, appreciating, and admiring is nature. Nature always goes her own way.. There's no stopping her, and let's face it... Our weather forecasts struggle to accurately predict her moves. Society has been on this "go green" phase in hopes of altering any devastating courses that may put humanity at risk. Don't get me wrong, it's a good cause.. I just feel like people need to genuinely be more attentive and fond of Mother Nature's everlasting beauty from the start.
I like to tell people, "Always be aware of your surroundings."
You just never know when you'll stumble upon a breathtaking work of nature or even hidden city gems.
