Day Seven: Let Social Media Inspire You
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey
I picked this quote from Goodreads, the social media tweets were not inspiring me.I find William Purkey’s quote very encouraging.
Why should I care if people are watching me dancing, if I am getting pleasure doing it, I should give my heart and soul to it. Let the world do their own thing to please themselves.
The problem with love is we do get hurt, whether it’s a spouse, a friend or even a child, they are capable of hurting us, if we love thinking we won’t get hurt, it’ll cause us to suffer, if we love unconditionally without hoping to get a return, we will be at peace, with ourselves.This seems to be the only way to love, unconditionally that is!
In my childhood I was fond of singing, I’d sit in the corner of our house and sing. There was no one listening, but the happiness I derived from it is unimaginable.
In my judgement any place on earth can be a heaven, if we want it to be. After all what do I know of heaven or paradise, I only know what I’ve read. It’s not like someone actually went to heaven and came back with the news what the place is like. I know I’ve seen some books titled, “Heaven is Real.” I do not feel any satisfaction from it.
But I do like it when I’m contented with myself, I have nice people around me who care, I get to go out to watch a movie or have dinner in a restaurant, these things make me happy. Also I’m not sick, I’m allowed to eat whatever I want within reason. It feels like I’m in heaven!
