“You see these people behind me? They are rushing to work and not paying attention to anything.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget to take the time out to enjoy the beauty in life. It’s like we’re zombies. Look up and take your head phones out. Say Hi to someone you see and maybe give a hug to someone who looks like they’re hurting. Help out someone.
You have to live every day like it’s your last. What people don’t know about me is that I had depression a couple of years back. I never told anyone about it. I had to fight my way out of depression. The person who was holding me back from my happiness was ME.
Every day is precious so let’s treat it like that. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, so live today! I hope you share this post to spread love this holiday.” – Keanu Reeves
I’m drawn to the authenticity and rawness of his message and candid photo. No glitz, no glam, just a slight glimmer of ‘ there’s gotta be more’ in his eyes. In my opinion, Keanu is alluding to the deep disconnection we have with each other which is symptomatic of our modern age; it’s almost like we’re scared to talk to one another. As he points out, even something as simple as saying ‘hello’ to a stranger on the street can have a major impact.
That brief connection leaves both parties with a good feeling, and that positivity ripples outwards everywhere they go. It’s such a small gesture, but it leaves such a huge mark. Be that person for someone.
Your goal in life is not to be happy, but to EXPERIENCE as much as you can. It’s within those experiences that you’ll find happiness.We don’t have to get older and experience massive ups and downs in life. We need to conclude that the moment passes with every second and we pass that moment by wishing in front and thinking in the back.
Focus on the now and you will never have to rush anything. Too many people don’t realize the power of the present time by spending it everywhere but in the present moment.
I wish this message touched your heart as it touched mine!
