The misconception of what truly matters is spread worldwide. Most of the population think that we humans must focus on what will make us productive and useful to the society. However this philosophy is an epitome of hypocrisy. By complying with our responsibilities is just a status quo that means we are in a position that is obliged to be a responsible member of the community but it is not what truly matters.
But what are the things that really matters? Or what are the things that should matter to us?
Here is the answer to the questions.
Determine what you want in life. Don’t waste time experimenting on things. Life is too short to fool around for a long period of time. It is not bad to try new things from time to time, actually it is healthy. However it will become unhealthy when you start to continuously do a thing you’re not happy with. Never settle with disappointments, it only means you’re focusing on things that don’t really matter.
Next thing to know is if you’re contented with your life as of the moment you’re journeying to get what you want. Sometimes people think that by getting what they want, they’re going to get through a lot of sacrifices and hardships but they are wrong. If you’re on your way to your goal and you’re unhappy, there is something wrong with your journey. The road to your goal is expected to be long, but never difficult. If you’re experiencing difficulty, you’re focusing on things that don’t really matter.
The last thing you need to realize is if you regret something you did. Wrong decisions done in the past are something worth remembering, however these wrong decisions are not worth regretting. Whatever mistakes we did before, we must learn to forgive ourselves, but never forget those mistakes. These wrong actions are what will serve lessons for us to be better today and be successful tomorrow. When you regret your past, it only means that you’re focusing on the things that don’t really matter.
The dimensions of time are very important. As you can see, the future, present, and the past are all entwined to each other. You must always remember that what really matters is the things that makes you happy and contented. Live your life to the fullest. If you already understand your purpose in life and you know what you really want and you’re contented with how you’re travelling to get there with no regrets from the past, it only means one thing. You’re focusing on the things that really matters.
