What is your attitude toward your life?
My attitudes toward my life are:
The former one is related to my "role".
As a daughter, big sister, student, and global citizen,
I always have to remember that my life is not just mine.
Even though sometimes this attitude is burdensome, it always keep telling me that I have to cheer up whenever I am so depressed and "do what I’ve gotta do" for the people I love.
Strictly speaking, it's a kind of a sense of duty.
So even if my life is not that happy or awesome, I cannot give up because I believe there's something I must do before I die.
Maybe it sounds a bit heroic, but responsible attitude also makes me feel that I am special and worthy of living.
The latter is my ultimate desire.
Who am I?
What is the essence of my life?
Do I really love what I am doing right now?
Am I honest all the time?
Am I doing my best right now?
Am I wasting my time by regretting?
Seeking truth sounds philosophical, but not really.
I hate to pretend that I am okay nor satisfied with something that against my nature.
It’s unnecessary to define my attitudes specifically, but sometimes this work is very useful when you are curious whether your life is worthy or not. Or… when you want to get a spurt of energy.
I think, every day, we should “start over” with a confident and grateful mind :)
