Life for people now has become so fast, mainly because of the different things that have become available to anyone, and technology is one of those things.
With the rise of technology came the comforts of life that our ancestors never would have imagined. From transportation which speed is almost as fast as a bullet, in a figurative sense, to comfort rooms that are self-supporting, life has become easier.
Did it really? In a practical, industrial, managerial sense, it did. But in life sense, technology quite altered it.
Altered in a way that simple things, or life, has become more complicated than it should. People forgot to enjoy the little things, the more important things. Instead, people have become avid rascals of the so-called rat race and it’s still far too long before people would try to stop in keeping with that societal craze. If they’re not avid followers of the rat race, then perhaps, they’ve become slaves to it.
It is true that the society has become different, and as people, conjoining with the changes, developments and trends of the society is a must, not only for reasons of blending in but in essence, for survival. Because of this need to adapt, humans tend to forego themselves, making them lost in a world of multi-cultures and disposable beliefs. If people get lost, they either self-destruct or try to find their way back home. While others go to self-destruction, meaning, they don’t really get to know what they want or do what they love, some or most, find their way back and live life as fun and as lively as they could.
And that’s what humans all wish and aim for. Live life as fun, as happy, as great, and as fulfilled as we could – despite this so called new society.
There are a lot of things available to find balance between life and the pressures of everything. From hiking, mountaineering, swimming, writing, singing, dancing, painting, surfing, biking, pottery, baking, cooking, playing but perhaps, the easiest could be by finding inspiration and motivation from the stories and words of the people who have gone ahead or those people we look up to and could be even from those ordinary people who did extraordinary acts.
These words, who were woven from experience, are now what we call quotes. These quotes can act as people’s driving force to run away from the chaotic life race and into the world of peace, contentment and chasing dreams.
Feel free to indulge into these intelligently crafted words – these quotes for living life – and possibly find your adage to live by.
