Today I am going to share something that is very personal and thoughts that define me a lot. This is my secret and where most of my motivation comes from.
When I write “The End”, I don’t mean the end of a movie or of a song… I mean the end of my life. That’s one thing that we humans all have in common, actually more or less all living things. Everything that lives will die one day.
Yes, sometimes I am scared
To be honest, it scares me sometimes to think about death, and I think more often about it than I would like to admit. But I do believe that it is good to think about the fact that one day we will not be here anymore. We shouldn’t ignore that fact and we should carry it with us… at least that’s what I do.
How is he going to turn this article into something positive?
Well, be patient I will get to the point 😛
YouTube Channel “Unus Annus”
You might also have heard about the channel “Unus Annus” (and no I cannot link to it). And no, it doesn’t mean one anus 😀 It means one year. Markiplier and Ethan (CrankGamePlays) created “Unus Annus” together and they said from the beginning that this channel would be deleted after 1 year. A lot of people couldn’t wrap their heads around this idea. To me, the message of the channel is just beautiful. The core message basically is: Our time is limited, so let’s make the best out of it. And they did! They had a great channel and uploaded a video a day.
Well, this channel is basically my segway to how the fact that we will die one day influences me. I exactly think that: “Our time is limited, so let’s make the best out of it.”
Everyone has bad days
Sure, I have my bad days too… where I might not want to do anything. But then this fact keeps me moving. I often think about the moment I’ll die and I just know that I don’t want to have any regrets, I want people close to me to be happy and cared for and I want to leave a positive footprint on this earth.
Life is hard and it’s not always easy to keep moving, but to me, it’s the only right thing to do. Being kind, giving your best, and don’t be bothered by small things. If you are bothered by stupid things, just try to see the big picture: in the end all these little things don’t matter at all… so why loose energy on them?
If you would ask me: What do you believe happens when we die? I don’t know… probably nothing. But that doesn’t matter. No matter what happens after death, we have this time right NOW, so let’s enjoy it and be grateful for it and give back to others.
The past, the present and the future
That’s also one big thing about me: I do think a lot about the future (more than the past), but I try to be in the moment as much as possible because that is truly the only thing we have, the NOW. Like right now I am writing this article and I am fully committing to that and enjoying it as much as possible. Afterward, I will probably start thinking about what I should do next.
My goal with this article is as always to let my thoughts out, but also to make people think. If you never thought about this topic, you probably should. If you feel the same as I do and you are scared sometimes, you are not alone. We are all in the same boat, so let’s make this boat something beautiful while we are here 🙂
