Have fun or you should be doing something else is a statement that I place in emails, post, connections, etc.
Well today I had someone challenge that statement. He talked about the horrible things that are going on in the world. How being focused on your happiness is egoist. He said it is great to pursue happiness but life happens. Then he went on to say that he doesn't get too involved (too much) with all the horrible things taking place in the world (since he can't do anything about it).
Well I could write a book on this subject and I started writing him a huge response and it got deleted as I was writing it. So I took that to mean that it was more information than was needed to address his response. As you are aware, I believe things happen for a reason, so I shot him a quick response.
It went like this: “If you only have 5 minutes to live, are you going to worry about things that you have no control over? Are you going to continue to do something that you don't want to do?
Since no one knows when it is their last 5 minutes, why would you live any other way?
See the challenge with some people is they believe they will be here forever. They can always get to things tomorrow. Well folks, one day it will be your last 5 minutes. Since you don't know when, “If you are not doing something that is fun, then you need to be doing something else”.
Like I told him, I didn't say drop everything you are doing and become irresponsible. What I am saying is you need to change your perspective, make different decisions and get out of any situation that takes you away from being happy and having fun.
It ain't right. It ain't wrong. It's just my opinion
