Our lives are meant for something. We have our purpose and that is why we are here. But what if one day we never woke up from our sleep?

This is just one of those vague questions that makes me feel uncertain. Asking myself, what if I never enjoyed life? What if I never meant for something but I was not able to achieve it?.

As I am afloat finding answers to my question, I was unconsciously listening to some motivational dialogues when suddenly a question popped out questioning myself, "What are you doing now? Are you going on the right path to where you wanted to be? What have you achieved right now?" and at that moment I was left in silence. It made me realize that I had a dream and I just wasted decades wasting my life of not chasing my dreams.


Choosing between passion or career is a difficult question especially we don’t have all the same economic status. Some may be on top of others while others may be below.

We all want the same thing and that is to do the things that we love. We don’t want things that make us feel depressed.

Then again, it doesn’t go to all of us. Some of us have some priorities in life; taking care of the financial income of the family, being the breadwinner and more.

Frankly speaking, most of us prefer a career for personal reasons regardless of how difficult it may be to work with a job that you do not like.

That’s a huge number compared to people who enjoy their job.

Ideally, everyone wants to pursue their passion. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to have your own company or become a freelancer but to have a job that you truly enjoy.


Talking and listening to other people’s stories is my favorite pastime. Especially to stories related to personal experience, horrifying experiences and aspiring dreams.

When I’m with my friends especially those who are younger than me and they started talking about their own goal in life, I always try to listen. I always said to myself, “This seems interesting”, and I would just sit and listen.

There was one time that my friend opened up that he needs extra income to support his family. On that day we had a little conversation and we talked for hours coming up with an idea and then finally something came up. “Why not try opening a mini grocery in your place? And while you work at the office you let your wife take care of it.” We both think that it was a wonderful idea and I even added that if he needs a capital I could lend him a bit of money to start his venture.

After a few days, we met again. Have a little talk about our previous discussion and he opened up that his wife would not agree to that idea because of so many reasons. To avoid confrontation with her wife he set aside the idea and goes back to where he started.

Fear is the reason why borders exist. Fear hinders us to see the future. We are human and we are limitless.

Just look at the kids, because they don’t know the meaning of losing they always achieve what they want. Their imagination is their guide and eagerness to achieve it is what drives them to achieve it.

We don’t want to be in the same situation over and over again without knowing what may be the outcome of our desires. We always want to change and make progress in our life.


There is no definite answer to such questions it's like counting the stars in the night without blinking your eyes. There are many possible answers but it is unsure of those is the best answer.

So what is the best solution?

The only solution for a doubtful answer is to sit and not take action. Sometimes the only course of action to solve a particular problem is not doing anything. Let your mind wander and it will find its own solution.

Do not overthink! Because it would only lead to self-doubt.

Never procrastinate! Because your brain may trash your idea.

Once your brain gives you a good idea, immediately take action. You are only given 5 seconds to react else your brain would flush it out. Time is everything.


My point is, do not waste your time. Your time is your life.

Make it worth it! Make it meaningful!

Do not waste it on things that make you useless.

If you sleep for more than 8 hours, Make it at most 8!

If you watch TV for more than 4 hours, read a book instead.

If you spend more than an hour on social media, put down your phone and go out with your friends and be socialized.

You are blessed with life to breathe, make it worth it.
