Good evening folks. Now sometimes i hear people say that they're not enjoying their life, or that they don't really enjoy living. I don't really agree with this because i think they're focusing on the wrong thing.

Living, by itself, is nothing. Living is like a canvas. No one looks at a painting and says "what an amazing canvas". The things that you enjoy doing, the things that you get satisfaction from in life - they are the paint on the canvas. Being alive allows you to do those things the same way you can't really make a painting without something for the paint to stick to.

Living, while pretty amazing, doesn't feel that great. I mean who gets off on blood flowing through their capillaries, or shedding and replacing cells? That's just the canvas. What we do with the paint is the most important thing.


  1. I always try to think to myself that life is awesome when something brings me down, and I do agree with this.

    1. I'm sort of the same there. I just remind myself that i'm a walking, self aware, flesh robot that can do whatever i want. I mean how cool is that?

  2. Amen! Very wise words, hopefully they reach someone who needs them. Life is too precious and wonderful to waste moping around!
