Already Living

 

 

Ever felt like you were waiting for life to happen?

I think college students are especially prone to feeling this way. I was thinking about this not too long ago, wondering why society requires so much preparation for life when we’re already living.

I’m already breathing, already alive, aware of the difference between right and wrong…what more do you want from me!!!! By the time people start feeling “free” they’re in a lifelong relationship and probably have serious commitments, rarely getting any solitude, no time to step out of their bubble and into deeper forms of thinking.

We have to make time for self-time. I get really into my studies and have neglected just about everything in my life to get through college, but ultimately the world will not end if college doesn’t work out, or anything else for that matter.

Set goals, plan, and prioritize but always…ALWAYS keep in mind that you are human. As one of my favorite quotes states:

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
-Buddha
