(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I like SNL for good reasons. No matter how hard i try, i struggle to understand how & why there’s a thing called TIKTOK in existence. I mean, how this 15 seconds of entertainment on loop works!! If i want to watch some dance, i will watch a STEP UP movie, for music there’s YouTube. I have a big dislike for such apps like TIKTOK which fuel instant gratification in young generation.)
The average life span of a human is approximately 80 years. That’s equal to about 29,200 days. About 8030 of those are school days & university, leaving you with 21,170 days left. Let’s say you work for 40 years, that’s 14,600 days, leaving you with 6570 days. By the time you retire, you’ll be too weak to do as much as you could’ve. Almost 70% of your life is spent in school and work. So stop waiting until Friday, stop sleeping until 1:00 pm on weekends, stop telling yourself that the week will be over soon because that week might be your dream week. Spend every day like it’s your last & it’s your best. So go out with your friends, pull the all nighter, tell them how you feel, travel around the world, get your hair wet in pool, buy that expensive watch you desire, let go of toxic friendships, fix your GOALS and fetch them, do what your heart desires without hurting others. Don’t wait. Live a life you’d want to relive, or ur just cheating urself.
(Now that you read the entire post, calm the fuck down till this pandemic calms down. Follow rules of lockdown & get vaccinated when it’s your turn.)
Most people have a misconception that “Routine is making me bored, repetitive & lazy”. When you think of comfort you might imagine a cozy warm space with blankets and a hot drink, its pleasant for sure. But Comfort is double-edged sword that typically results in the consequences of contentment boredom and laziness. Routines can help give structure to your life and your nightly netflix chill ritual might be satisfying but your habits could also be holding you back from opening up in discovering your hidden talents.
When you trap yourself in your comfort zone for too long, you’ll transform into a zombie, a mere cog in the machine without meaning or fulfillment in life. When you lose your drive to learn to do and to achieve, you lose the ability to create meaning in your life and while it’s nice to feel comfortable, it often leads to wasted potential.
