Life Is Not a Problem to Be Solved, but a Reality to Be Experienced. When it comes to things that matter, time isn’t on your side. Life isn’t like solving a math equation where you have all the time in the world to solve it and the answer you come up with will be 100% guaranteed to be right. The one thing you can always be sure of? There are no do-overs in life, so it’s important to live every moment as if it were your last — because it very well could be! Here’s how to do just that.
I used to think life was like a problem that needed solving. One of those puzzles where you had to figure out the answer and you were done. But now I know better. Life is not an equation with one solution- it’s just reality. The fact that life is going on all around us whether we’re looking for the answer or not. It’s happening right now, and it’s happening right here. This sounds like some new age mumbo-jumbo, I know, but when we stop trying so hard to find out how things work and just accept that they do work no matter what we do or don’t understand about them- then life becomes this amazing journey instead of an impossible puzzle.
Thriving in an Uncertain World
The past year has seen unprecedented uncertainty in the world. The US presidential election, Brexit, and geopolitical conflicts are just a few examples of this uncertainty. With these events unfolding it’s hard not to feel anxious and uncertain about what tomorrow will bring.
But how can we thrive in an uncertain world? How can we take charge of our lives and live with purpose? One way is by embracing discomfort. Many people today want things quickly and easily – they’re looking for life hacks or shortcuts that will lead them to success. But nothing comes easy in life; if you want something you have to work for it. It’s through embracing the uncomfortable times that we learn who we are and grow the most. Challenges may be painful at first but they often lead us toward fulfilling our dreams and goals.
Facing Challenges Head On
It is easy to think of life as a problem that needs solving. All we have are problems and obstacles that impede our progress and we often feel like the only way out is through. But what if we looked at life differently? What if instead of seeing it as something that needs fixing, we experience it? There are moments in life when everything seems to be going wrong, where there’s nothing good happening. In those moments it can be difficult to find anything positive or even see any light at the end of the tunnel. But when we view these negative experiences from another perspective, they can become opportunities for growth and learning. Challenges force us out of our comfort zone and into unfamiliar territory which helps us grow stronger by challenging ourselves. When we take on challenges head-on, with an open mind and open heart, they will always lead us in a new direction or give us insight into ourselves that would never be found otherwise.
The Importance of Mental Wellness
It’s so important to take care of your mental wellness. Life is too short and we don’t realize how precious it is until something bad happens. That’s why taking time for yourself and prioritizing your mental health should be the first thing on your list of priorities. Take deep breaths, spend time with family and friends, go for walks in nature, or just spend some time outside in the sun. There are so many ways you can make sure you’re taking care of yourself mentally without it feeling like work. Just remember that life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.
Life is an ever-changing experience. The only constant in life change. With that in mind, we have to learn how to embrace the changes life throws at us and not resist them. Resisting change will lead nowhere and cause you frustration and unhappiness. But embracing change can lead you to new paths that may be more fulfilling than what you originally thought was your destiny. So don’t fight against the inevitable, instead, use it as an opportunity for growth.
Learning From Failure and Successes
It’s not that I failed, it’s just that I found 10,000 ways that won’t work. This is an excerpt from Edison’s response when he was asked about his difficulties with inventing the lightbulb. It highlights the importance of perseverance and patience as key components for success in life. We must be aware of our mistakes and shortcomings to correct them and learn from them so we can grow and develop our strengths. Failure is inevitable in life; what matters most is how we respond to it. If you’re willing to take risks by trying new things out of your comfort zone without fear of failure or being rejected by others, then you’ll more than likely be successful in life.
Finding What Makes Us Happy
What makes us happy? It’s an age-old question that has many different answers. People have different wants and needs. Some people are happy with what they have while others may be searching for something more. It can be a difficult question to answer because there is no one size fits all answer for everyone. There are so many things that can make us happy: family, friends, our jobs, or even our pets! With so many choices it can be difficult to figure out what will make you happy in the long run. Luckily, this blog post was not written by me. Instead, I’m going to quote some other experts on happiness:
I am still just as interested in understanding human emotions as I ever was – in understanding what makes life worth living. But now my focus is on understanding not just how we experience joy and sorrow, but how we sustain these feelings over time; not just how people go through life sad or elated, but why they stay like this over such long periods of time; not just when emotional experiences happen to us, but also when they happen within us. – Daniel Gilbert
We don’t fully appreciate happiness until it’s gone – Jeanette Winterson
Happy life looks much better than a successful career. – Abraham Lincoln
I have come to this conclusion after living in so many different places and meeting so many people. I don’t know if I’m right or wrong, but it feels right. The more I experience life the more I get to know myself. The more I know myself the better equipped I am at understanding other people. Life is not a problem to be solved, it’s an adventure that requires our participation.
