what really matters;

Saturday, February 01, 2014
Recently, I realized a great deal of people putting lots of emotion in trivial, unimportant and insignificant junk. Unfortunately, I’m a part of that trend as well, and recognize that it is essential that we take a step back and appreciate the beautiful, amazing aspects of our lives and remember what’s worth worrying about.

When sluggish internet, electronic devices acting up, or a horrendous long queue is enough to turn you annoyed and uptight, that's a sign. When you’re more concerned with a stranger’s thoughts of you, than how you are perceived by loved ones and close friends, that’s a red flag. This is an indicator that you have become too concerned with the nonsensical, and oblivious to what truly is important.

So what really matters?

I guess the fact that you’re alive and happy — that matters. You woke up this morning, having the benefit of living life for the time being. That’s precious, if you think about it. It doesn't matter that your current situation might not be ideal. Honestly, it will never be flawless, but that’s okay. If a person is seeking picture perfection, there are always something to be unhappy about.
