The worst enemy of the BEST is GOOD.
Man is this a sentence that has changed my perspective on living forever.
Okay, I’m going to have to say it… the classic ‘you only live once’ because man is that true. We really do only live once on this earth… because that’s enough, IF we are wise on how we live it. I mean why live it good when we can live it the best way we are capable of. This means discovering what living to the fullness of life means for us, because I see it too often, we can be so content in what we have now we cover the possibility to understanding there is more waiting out there for us. Here are just two aspects of our lives that we can be so content with we forget to live ambitiously.
Love. Love is something that is expressed in all shapes and forms. The love of a friend. The love of a mother. The love of that special someone. But all love works the same but differently. As the dictionary announces it, love is ‘a strong feeling of affection’. Notice here it doesn’t say ‘a life long, positive strong feeling of affection that brings joy, peace and respect to that other person.’ The world is taught from Oxford standards to simply find love at a level of ‘strong feelings of affection’. RELABEL. Love is this and much more. And this is what we should be striving to achieve… a love that’s unconditional. Don’t settle for anything less. no matter what you have done and where you have been. You deserve love.
Career. Urban dictionary says a career is ‘an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress.’ Now career’s is a tough one because I don’t think anyone aspires to be a Bin man in their lives (good on you if you do though) but that job needs to be done by someone. In an ideal word we would all have jobs we love, with enough jobs for every living soul, but we know that isn’t reality so what should a career realistically look like… you notice how it doesn’t say ‘an occupation undertaken for the rest of a persons life’? that’s because I believe we should never stay in one place for the rest of our lives that it become as normal as breathing or blinking because that’s good but not the best. The world offers so many occupations why not explore them. Now I’m not saying that we should move from job to job because some people may truly love what they are doing so much that it’s as if they don’t work at all. But it also says in urban dictionary that a career should have a opportunities to progress. If you aren’t progressing financially or even as a person. Get out of there as soon as you can. Find a job where even when you retire, your passion for what you do will never end.
Now the list is endless of things you can add or subtract to ensure you are living the best life you are capable of. Lets relabel this whole thing. Good is not good, because you are missing out on the best.
