Okay, listen. The average life expectancy is of 83 years, more or less. There are 365 days each year. The average life expectancy is, then, of 30 295 days. Neat, huh?
What does that mean?
It means that you only have 30 295 days to do whatever you want. It means that, after 30 295 days, nothing will matter. If you failed, there will be nobody to blame you. If you succeed, you’ll get no prize.
It means that, it doesn’t matter how hard is your life, it will pass. Do not worry.
Take life as a game. You’re in a sandbox with 30 295 days to do whatever you want. You can cure cancer, you can write a wonderful novel, you can become a fantastic journalist or a brilliant teacher. But then again, if you don’t, nobody will blame you.
I find that thought quite relaxing. Life isn’t a goal, life isn’t a mission. You just happen to be in a sandbox game. You stay here for a while, and if you have fun, it’s great! But, if you don’t, no problem. You’ll get out someday.
