I was prancing the isles of Michael’s Arts and Crafts the other day when I stumbled upon this dapper, minimalist stationary card. Its cobalt blue hue was strikingly eye-catching with the words “Do What Matters.”
…But passion is barely seeping through the cracks these days, which shouldn’t be the case. What i’m trying to say is, no matter how busy or successful I get, part of my DNA is evidently slipping away. Passion should be the center of our universe.
Life is too short to be solely nerd’ing around. Start the semester hard, keep at it, finish hard, yada-yada-yada…
Give yourself time to do the leisurely whims your heart beats for. Who wants to be that guy, many years later, on a rocking chair, retired and regretting. You feel me? Live it up, folks!
Do what personally matters. Perpetuate the needs, while prioritizing the wants on a higher regard. We were built for uniqueness. Whether it’s a passion project you’ve been slacking on, a therapeutic bubble bath, or the dinner recipe you’ve been dying to try, just go and do!
Besides, what matters most is our sanity, and without it we’re merely lifeless creatures running in busy, never-ending laps of 0% satisfaction.
