Suicide is an unfortunate event that happens in our society too often.
As well as depression, stress, wanting to give up, etc. And sometimes it’s over small things that are blown out of proportion.
I wanna share these 8 powerful reasons to be alive, and hopefully Inspire you to be positive and take action.
1. You Only Live Once (Yolo)
It’s true though. You only live once i’m afraid. Some may complain about it, but ya know what? At least you/we get the chance to live life. Even if it can only be done once!
All the time you spend being angry at somebody for something they’ve done years ago, will only stop you from living life happily.
If you hold a grudge against someone, you’re basically a prisoner to them.
They might not even care, so why are you bothering to? If you’re mad at your EX still, get over it and move on.
Instead of plotting to get revenge, get over it and move on.
They say life is too short, so stop wasting your time on what’s happened, live in the moment, and enjoy every moment you can.
2. You Can Live Out Your Dreams
I’m a HUGE believer when it comes to dreams, goals, passions etc. There’s a quote that goes like…. If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
Any dream can be accomplished, all you have to do is dream BIG and follow it up with action. Think about how amazing life is gonna be when you live out your dreams.
Does thinking about it excite you? Isn’t that alone something to live for? The thrill of taking action to make it happen?
I don’t know about you but the thought of living out my dreams gets me going. In fact, I already am!
What I mean is, if you’re doing the things you’re passionate about, you’re already living out your dreams. The full picture just hasn’t come into fruition yet.
3. You’re Unique
Nobody can be like you, even if they tried to be like you. Aren’t you glad we’re not all the same? Because if we were the same, life would be pretty shit, boring, and as stale as off bread.
Any talents you have are unique to you. Any skills you have are unique to you. You just have to find it, then take advantage of it.
4. You’re Living In The 21st Century
I’m not saying there would of been anything wrong with being alive a century ago. But it can’t be denied, living in the 21st century is a blessing.
It’s the best time to be in when it comes to technology, entrepreneurship, business, jobs, smartphones, etc.
You no longer have to travel miles to apply for a job, which can save you a lot of money if you own a car. Or even if you use public transport.
We can shop online for clothes, products and pretty much anything via sites like eBay, Amazon and more. If you lead a busy lifestyle, this is obviously 100% beneficial to your schedule.
If you wanna create your own business, you can do so through sites like eBay, Amazon, or better yet, create your own website for as much as £10.
You can talk to people worldwide with Skype, Facebook, twitter, and more. I could be here all day on this topic If I wanted.
The 21st century is a time to be appreciated and taken advantage of!
5. You Can Make A Difference In The World
The same way bill gates and Steve jobs made a difference in our lives. It’s funny really, I possibly wouldn’t even be blogging if it wasn’t for Microsoft.
It’s crazy when you look at things in a certain way. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what race you are, you can make a difference in the world too.
Imagine how good it would feel to actually make a HUGE impact in millions of people’s lives?
Even making a difference in 1 or 10 people’s lives is something. It’s a feeling you can’t beat.
It doesn’t even matter what job you have, because either way, you’re gonna make a difference in someone’s life anyway.
Whether you’re an engineer, cleaner, boxer, singer, dentist, software developer, you’re still making a difference without even realizing it.
6. You Can Make People Smile, Laugh
It’s all about the simple things in life. The simple things in my opinion are probably the most over looked!
When you’re working your ass off on a 10 hour shift, do you ever take the time to smile, laugh?
When you get home from a long shift, do you take time to smile, laugh?
Better yet, when you’re out and about, do you take the time to smile and laugh till you’ve got a stomach ache with your friends? Family? Boyfriend? Girlfriend?
It’s important to laugh everyday man, i make it priority for me on a daily. If you ain’t laughing, you’re not living. That’s how i see it.
7. You Can Learn New Things
There’s always more to learn, no matter how much of a genius you might be. Learning things makes life more interesting and enjoyable. Curiosity may of killed the cat, but curiosity is a good thing.
Maybe you wanna learn how to sing because it’s something you’ve always dreamed of?
Maybe you’re just adventurous, and you wanna learn something new to see if you’ll like it? Whatever it is, there’s an infinite amount of things we can learn regardless of topic.
There’s too much to life to not want to live it and make it the best life possible.
8. You Can Eat Delicious Food
This one is probably my favorite out of all 8. Probably because i’m a food lover… I mainly love Chinese food and plan to go there in future.
Especially countries like Japan!
Then i’ll be able to eat all the Oriental food i want, because i’m greedy like that :).
Regardless of who you are and what food you like, you can’t tell me food isn’t something worth living for!
You might need it to survive, but that’s not the point. It’s the fact that there’s so much variety, so many different tastes, and so many different ways a meal can be made.
Change your perspective a little to see things from a fresh angle.
No matter what position you’re in, don’t let life get you down. Life might not be easy sometimes, but it’s not impossible.
You can be whatever you wanna be, do whatever you wanna do, and be as happy as you choose to be. It all comes down to patience, attitude, perseverance, drive, and more importantly, you.
