We sometimes have moments in our lives, where we just drop everything, pause, and take a moment to think. Moments like these we spend a few seconds, considering who we are, what we've done, and basically an external outlook on our lives. I've had these moments in the weirdest of places, but that split second of immense thought, proves to be the most serene. I once had a 'self--realization' moment in the middle of a party. There was loud music, flashing lights, the whole lot.
Those few seconds of trance, were enough to put my life into perspective. I stepped outside for a few minutes, away from the the noise and the distractions. I just thought to myself, what is life? We live, we die, it moves on. Is it better to live your life happy but with not many possessions, or unhappy with all the money and glory in the world? (and no, i wasn't high when I was thinking this)
I realized how insignificant and short, life really is. Make the most out of it, have fun, just don't completely throw away your future; after all, what's a life without happiness?
