In Long Run We Are All Dead

“Thinking about past, worrying about future comes with the anxiety of today’s nature”

We humans are so complicated but one thing is common among us that is not living in the present. We always run after everything whom we think can give us happiness. But are we really happy? Running after materialistic things can give us satisfaction? Regretting about past can change anything? Worrying what will happen in future can change the fact what we are today? In economics there is a saying “In long run we are all dead”- quoted by John Maynard Keynes, one of the famous economists of the World. He said this in the reference to the economy but it also applies in our day to day life.

Thinking about future can’t help us to grow positively but depress us. Planning helps only for next few tasks but we can’t plan our whole upcoming journey because of surprises and uncertainty. Just think for ones if we knew what will happen next, do we really not struggle to change it? That’s the beauty of life just do your work in present, keep a smile on your face and just wait what will happen next can immensely change our life. The bitter truth of the life is no one is immortal, everyone will vanish at some point of their life but because of that we can’t stop enjoying in present. A small gesture of thank you, sorry, love, friendship, can change our life as a whole. People will remember us in their memories so, why not to be the part of their good ones.

Long run or future sometimes helps us to plan our life but it comes with some disadvantages of stress, mental tension, dissatisfaction, fights with inner self and many more. Planning is good but we have to accept that we can’t plan our whole life and be so sure that it will run totally according to us. Just start to believe that life will treat you accordingly, and hope always comes with surprises. Who knows what will happen next instead we can live in the current moment with our loved ones and give them our time. Running after materialistic happiness can’t long last after all they comes with depreciation value and can’t let us to express ourselves.

So, just pause for a second and think, look the faces of your loved ones, set your priorities, don’t be so hard on yourself just smile and be proud of what your are today and work on your upcoming path but don’t take too much pressure, we only got one life to live so live the fullest.

-Love Yourself
