Forever certainly is a very long time. Have you ever wondered what you're going to spend the rest of your life doing? What about what you may be doing in twenty, thirty, or even sixty years? There is a chance you’ll be out and about doing great things with your life, but what happens if you are not?
Something that seems to cross my mind quite often is whether or not I’ll be a successful adult. I wonder what it will take to get the most out of my short lifetime. How should I should spend my days down here on earth?
I would assume I’m going to go to college and get an education, but where do I go from there? There’s so many things in life that I know nothing about, and I can not wait to learn more. But I can't help myself from thinking, “What if I do it wrong?’
Obviously, there is no written “right or wrong” way to do things in life, but I do want to make the most of my days. Personally, I feel like something most people struggle with is having a positive attitude towards daily challenges and obstacles.
I believe everyone should try to go through their days with a smile on their face and willing to learn more. In my eyes, being happy is one of the first steps in having a successful life.
Although you never know what the future holds, you can always make the most of what you have. In some instances you may feel like your pathway is already mapped out for you, I find myself feeling that way quite often. I worry whether or not success will come my way as I get older. I question how I can decide things for myself when in theory it is already decided for me.
The truth is, nothing is set in stone. Life throws some obstacles at us, but we can take the blows as they come and figure things out. That is what I plan to do.
In my eyes, success is not measured by what you do from day to day. Success is how you apply the experiences you’ve gained to your everyday life. From here on out, I will learn to take on life with positive vibes only, one step at a time.
