Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive. This is a quote from Hafiz, a Persian poet. Being around people we love gives us fuel and energy to live. They help us keep going.
There are three things that we need in life to be happy, someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to. Someone to love doesn’t mean a spouse or a partner it could be a child, a grandchild, or whatever. This person is someone you care more about than yourself. Something to do doesn’t only keep you occupied but it is something that gives you purpose. The last one is the reason why you wake up each morning.
Take a moment now, to think about what are the things that bring growth and life to you. Once you have identified them, continue to move towards them. Embrace the things that bring life to you. Use them as a light that will guide you through. Stay close to the things that bring life to you.
