Start Living Your Life to the Fullest NOW

Imagine having a bank account with $41,513,170. You can't deposit anything in the account and on top of that, you have to lose $1,440 every single day and can't stop it. Sucks, doesn't it? What you should know is that I am not giving you random numbers; that bank account is your life. (or, the average life span which you will have. More or less) Every day, you lose 1,440 minutes that you can't get back. And chances are, 99.9% of those lost minutes have been wasted on meaningless and unfulfilling tasks. 

We're all afraid of dying while having not lived a meaningful life. Even before these troubling times, like me, you've let your days pass by without experiencing things that you have always wanted to and I'm 99.99% sure that after everything cools down in the hopefully near future, you will all go back to your ways of living a colorless and joyless life of passively scrolling through your phones and letting the world "out there" do its own thing and pass you by yet again, while still wishing there was more to things. 

We all complain about how we don't have time to do the things we want like learning new things or trying out hobbies and bettering ourselves. But what's the excuse now? We've all collectively wished to get the chance to do things we've always wanted to do, and now that we're given that chance, we're wasting it again by complaining about the circumstances through which we've gotten the chance.  (Drinking game: Take a shot every time you read "Chance") I have had a list of movies that I've planned on watching as soon as I got the chance to, and now that I have that time, all I keep doing is adding more movies to the list and YET AGAIN, saying I don't have time to watch them.  You see where I'm getting at? SO is it really the circumstances we're in that "hinder" living to the fullest or is it us? 

Each person has their own goals and joys in life, and all that matters is that they go after them, though they rarely do. There's nothing stopping you from making a move and you should stop being afraid of making the wrong choice because not making one is the only wrong choice. You may be stuck at home right now, but so is everyone else. You always ask for time and now you have it, so adapt and do what you've always wanted to do. It's as simple as that!

Living a fulfilling life isn't about being the most productive or successful person out there. It is one that makes you happy and makes you feel content. So just do you! That's all that matters. Do what you want to do and stay true to yourself while doing it and the world will seem like less of an ugly mess.

Now I don't know about you, but I'm gonna listen to myself and watch a movie from my watchlist because that's what'll make me happy and feel more complete. Good luck with your own little task of joy! Remember, time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time
