Dying at twenty-five: a reminder to live

When you're young, you think you have your whole life ahead of you. But if we don't actively engage in keeping our lives exciting, new and thrilling, this statement is only partially true. It is up to us to actively shape our lives.

Many people die at twenty-five and are not buried until they are seventy-five.

The other day I stumbled across a quote. It is unfortunately not known from whom this quote comes, however, a quote does not have to be from someone important or smart to be important or smart. Personally, the quote appealed to me because I'm about in the age group mentioned.

Of course, this quote does not mean that many people actually die at 25 and are not buried until 50 years later. Death takes place metaphorically in this quote. It is not the people who die, but their ambitions, dreams or simply the fire that burns in them. At the age of 25, one has one's life reasonably under control. You usually have an education or a degree behind you and have already gained some experience on the job. You may also have a partner and have already traveled to one or the other country in the world. You have already "everything" experienced

The only problem with this is that life is constantly changing. There is always more to learn, more to see, more to feel, or more simply put, more to experience. It's important to keep learning new things when you're out of school. It's important to go places you haven't been before. It's important to expose yourself to the unknown. Because if you only move around in environments that are already familiar, life can quickly seem lifeless. I have already explained why things seem lifeless by means of a Quote from Alan Watts explained.

It's important to still be enthusiastic about new things when you're 50. After all, life is short enough in and of itself. If we then spend a large part of our days in the same rut, we waste our already limited time. Of course, it's hard not to rest on your laurels, but the comfort zone is the grave of dreams.

So try something new every now and then. Learn something new and see where your path takes you. Even if you die at 35 and are buried at 75, you will have lived 10 years more than most.
