Trying to avoid life

we often look for the complicated, we seek the problems, we build obstacles, we look for elaborate get outs, we find ways to not show up, we seek approval or permission to stop us from starting, we look for others to seek avoidance with, we, in fact, do anything to avoid our lives.

Then we say ‘life’s too short’ or ‘if only I had more time’ or ‘you only live once’ and so on.

Our life is right now, just enjoy this moment and do something without thinking or do nothing at all, either, and it doesn’t matter, but we could choose to avoid spending every moment trying to avoid life and instead live it.

One thought on “Trying to avoid life

  1. I suppose a body would have to consider their life one worth living. There would have to be purpose involved. Passion. Whatever this body was doing would have to be a choice for one, and driven by positive energy for two. Applying constant negatives sucks the life out of whatever we are doing, and the life for doing it out of us.

    Like you, I wonder why some can’t seem to see their worth, their contribution in almost everything they do, even those things they would “prefer” not to be doing, realizing that doing them doesn’t have to take forever, or be forever, that’s their choice.

    So many feel they are being forced into this or that, they have no voice, no freedom. What if instead, they realized that freedom comes when we chose to accept the now, and work for something more, something better, to come as we pace ourselves to get there in time!
