Today, people don’t seem to take advantage of what they’re given and appreciate life, as though people had back in earlier times. They tend to think of it as just another object someone naturally obtains at birth. Life is a blessing, which is why I believe people should live it to the fullest. In reality, we don’t have forever to accomplish goals we have in life, make an impact on people’s lives or just the world in general. More people need to start living life to its fullest extent everyday, instead of waiting until they have realized time is running out, and they haven’t done all the things they’ve wanted to do in their lifetime.
Looking back at history, you will come across many everyday people that lived with a cause, they all lived with a goal in life, which they were determined to accomplish. They wanted to be known and make an impact, for example: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mohandas Gandhi, they all made tremendous impacts on our lives and lifestyles. Today, the amount of people who live for something is steadily decreasing which is becoming an issue.
Many people today, don’t have the best intentions when it comes to their life, or the way they live it. They just look at life as if it’s something we have to go through and deal with. Instead, of doing the usual boring, lazy things most of us do, we need to start getting out there, experiencing life, the world, and all its mysteries. Make names for ourselves, and let our legacies rage on for many centuries to come. Although, there aren’t many people who do live with a purpose in life, there are a quite a few that do, which would be our soldiers. They fight everyday, risking their own lives to protect the lives of all Americans and their freedom. We need to figure out what it is we want in life and go for it, have at least one cause that helps you get out of bed in the morning and keep living your life the best you can. There would be a lot more happier people in the world if they were to do so.
The question isn't how long are we going to live on this earth; it is how much are we going to live on this earth. In his 36 short years, Bob Marley achieved more than most who live to a so-called ripe old age. Bob once said, 'My life is only important if mi cyan help plenty people. My life is for people. That's who mi is.' He lived on earth but thought the thoughts of heaven. In his song 'Rasta ...
I feel as though people today, don’t live their life with as much cause as they did in the past. Over vast periods of time, less people lived life with purpose. People began to just get through life, instead of living it to its greatest extent. We need to start realizing our lives wont last forever, which is why we must live the best, and to the fullest as possible, while we have time.
