Are You Missing Your Life?


Someone pushed the fast forward button. It was just Friday and when I woke up today it was already Wednesday. When there is so much going on, the day’s disappear and I barely remember them. It’s like a blur of days that turn into blurs of weeks and months. Why do we insist on living this ridiculous pace?Sprinting is meant for short distances and not throughout our entire lives. We are not meant to be crossing off an endless lists of things to accomplish every second we spend awake. How can we find balance when there is none to be found? 

Chase had an essay to write comparing two  articles about whether we should remove sports from school. One of the claims is that sports distract kids away from learning and puts the emphasis on the wrong thing- in this case sports.  I say this. Today, look around you. People are so jam packed with things to do that they are distracted from living. That is the real travesty of all. Maybe we should write a paper on that because we never get a minute back. What do you think?

    that’s a great idea and someone should write a paper about it. Someone once said “I am a human being, not a human doing” and that has always stuck with me.
