The best time to exist is right now. There are pros and cons to every era, but at the end of the day, if you’re reading this, you are most likely significantly more wealthy than a majority of the people on this earth. That’s not to say that you somehow don’t have problems, but they are different in a variety of ways. Having food, water, and shelter, for those reasons alone, makes us so incredibly lucky.
And at times, it’s hard to accept the fact that we are lucky. Politics are crazy, we may suffer internally and emotionally, we might have difficult relationships! There are plenty of things that are wrong, but that doesn’t mean that nothing is right. We have a choice to be grateful. We can choose to be thankful for what we have.
You haven’t reached tomorrow yet. Yesterday is already gone. What we have to work with is the present. So let’s use it! Other people may have opinions on how you live your life, but in the end, it’s not their life is it? It’s smart to listen to what other people have to say, but listening doesn’t mean following the whims of anyone who comes into your path. Furthermore, if you’re tied down with what they Might think, you’re fulfilling only a tiny segment of who you could be.
This is right now, take it and live it.
