Alan Watts Famous Quote Friday
“Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.”
Alan Watts was a philosopher, writer and speaker. British born but moved to the United State in his teen years. Better known for his Eastern Philosophy, but he studied many religions and his main interests in life were personal identity and a higher consciousness.
His words are what everyone wants, a life full of things you like. This can easily be achieved with the right mind set and motivation. Sure miserable things will happen in our life but let us not focus on those things. We as humans spend a lot of time focused on the negatives in our life, the things we don’t want, when really we should be more focused on the positive things. Give more of your attention to the things you love, the things you want to do. Don’t give so much attention to the difficulties of your path to the things you want but more so feed your mind with the ideas that you are on your way. Tell your mind that you are already there. All Alan is simply saying is do what you want with your life and if you don’t like it change it now. This is your life and this is your chance to live it, so if you are miserable change it now. Fill your life with things you want in it not things you don’t.
