Is it all worth it? - by Peter Gatt


This article takes a bit of a different turn from the normal, but I think it's a question we all ask ourselves at one point or another, be it daily, weekly, monthly or just that once.


Is it worth it?


They say that we are all shaped by our experiences and to some extent our past is what decides our present but, is this really true? I think the answer to this is much more complicated than a simple yes or no and really relies on if we choose to allow it to happen.

Now I'm not trying to get all philosophical and deep in such a short post, I mean people have written entire books on this without reaching any conclusive or helpful response, and I surely cannot think to do any better in 1000 words or less. However, let's try and break it down a bit, into an easy to digest tidbit.


I want you to take a moment and think to yourself, how much have you lost because of the fear of the unknown, that want to stay in a comfort zone that you know so very well. This could be anything be it a job and not moving due to fear of the grass not being as green on the other side. It could be that relationship or those feelings that you choose to ignore or back away from due to that very painful heartbreak you once had? What if I had to propose that perhaps the biggest thing that you might end up with is the feeling of regret.


Regret is a fickle friend to have and one that we can never escape from. We get the opportunity to live life every day. So why choose to be an observer and not a participant. In short I'm saying that at times we should take that jump, we should put ourselves out there, we should risk getting our feelings hurt because if nothing is ventured than we cannot really gain. Our life is finite and the sooner we realize that the more we are able to truly live and experience everything there is on offer.


Enjoy every moment because it's over in a blink of an eye.
