Wow look at me blogging two days in a row. KZAM.
How has your day been humans? My day was gooood. We had a guest lecture today on positive psychology by a professor from the University of Pennsylvania. And we did something called a thought experiment. Wherein, you just sit and let your mind do all the work.
He asked us to imagine, that today-now, is the last day of our lives, that’s it, everything is going to be over today. And amongst all these years, what had made your life worth living? He asked.
In that moment, the room just fell silent, all of us thinking, what made all these years worthwhile? What moment? One girl said something along the lines of being able to grow through the good and the bad times. A friend of mine spoke about the moment she visited an animal orphanage in Kenya. Another boy had something to say too, something I can’t seem to recollect.
But yes, coming back.. what made my life worth living? We were supposed to tell the person sitting next to us. The girl next to me spoke about her trip to France being a highlight of her life and I well.. hmm. I said, the people that is my friends, my family that I surround myself with-identify with- made it worth living. I couldn’t think of anything else.
At the end of the lecture, I just realised how tiny our life span is and how I am not even cherishing each day-each moment, be it good or bad. So I have decided, to embrace every little thing that happens, to conquer my fears, to..live.
