Welcome to my little blog.
I once read somewhere, where the author (who I can't remember and I tried searching for it, believe me) had said something along the lines of -
"If you worry about it being perfect all the time, you'll never start writing".
Which is true. I planned to have a blog half of my life. It must be perfect, I'm going to talk about this, etc. And the day I finally decided to write this post was a day where I didn't plan it at all. A day where I just felt like writing what I'm feeling and went ahead and did it.
So, I just finished watching the movie, About Time, and I love it. It was released in 2013, but hey, you're never too late to watch a movie. What Tim, the main character, said in this movie resonated with me. He said that the secret to happiness is to live your life as if you deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of your extraordinary ordinary life. It's basically a fancy way of tell you to live as if you were dying, but I was motivated by this, as I always am with most of the stories and movies I love, and I wanted to share this little motivation with you out there. Whoever you are, whatever you're going through, try to imagine yourself travelling in time to this very day you're in and get the most out of it, enjoy it, as much as you possibly could. Easier said than done, I know, and there are some terrible days where you wouldn't want to relive twice even if you could, but on one random day, or on a particularly bored holiday, just go out there and live, take notice of all the little things, and I hope you'll be happier, even if it's just the tiniest bit, for even that tiny bit is an extra dose of happiness.
"We're all travelling through time together, everyday of our lives, all we could do is to do our best, to relish, this remarkable ride." - Tim Lake, About Time.
