Life is always messy with hundreds of jobs to complete. Many times we are too busy working and forget about the values of life. This article will list the oblivion that you need to pay attention.
The oblivion of life that you sometimes ignore
We often have great challenges in life that sometimes forget the small truths that not everyone can openly admit. Here is a list of some of the tough facts that we need to learn to accept in order to make our life happier and easier.
Everyone can not live forever
It sounds tragic, but it's true. You cannot deny that everyone around you, and even yourself, can end life at any time. Many people often look down on the feelings of those who love them, taking it for granted that it does not matter, so that when they realize they have to leave, they are no longer with us, then live in torment and regret.
Parents, grandparents, or friends, we all don't know how long they can be with us. How long has it been since you called your parents? If not, don't hesitate to call them right away. Take care of them while you can, because you know nothing lasts forever. The relationships around are the good things that we have, so please cherish when there is a chance.
Meaningful life is not chosen by yourself
Buddhists believe that we create our own world through ordinary thoughts and actions. If you want to live a meaningful life, it is your own choice.
We don't have to do big things like fight for peace or end world hunger for a meaningful life; but a meaningful life as simple as a woman at the grocery store but still feeling satisfied as the CEO of a large company.
You see, often, we focus on the things that we don't yet have, and forget that being satisfied with life is also the way we make life more meaningful.
There is no love story in real life
Have you ever thought of the phrase "ideal lover" or "perfect lover"? A person who is like in love who writes, appears and loves you like in a movie. In fact, no one in this world is perfect, simply because the two words "perfect," or "ideal" are just a relative concept.
So do not expect the "ideal lover" to exist, because when your partner is not what you want it to be, it will greatly affect your relationship. Think of your relationship as a masterpiece of art and the two of you as artists.
Happy or not it's like how the two of you draw that picture together. And of course, if it doesn't work as you wanted it to, it's your fault. So, don't expect and hope for others, love is the trying to accept imperfections to be perfect.
Life is just a game
So why must be afraid to stumble? Simple living is also just to learn and learn from experience, consider it as a game of "godfather", your job is just doing what you want, learning the rules and then gradually leveling up, that's all.
We will never succeed, or embrace new things if we dread to stall while playing. Have you seen someone turn into a professional soccer player and never get on the pitch?
Every party is about to end
Nothing in this world is forever. My youth will also leave me and go when wrinkles appear; People who come to me, love me and leave me at any time; we may be alive today but then tomorrow we also have to die. The eternal rule is so, instead of being depressed, we should rejoice and thank ourselves for living the life of today.
If life goes on forever, there's nothing special about it. How can you understand appreciation without knowing the feeling of losing? Time and end make everything valuable, so live every second because life is so short.
Learn to love from the little things
Since we know everything is going to end, let's love everything we can in life. Everything around is so beautiful when we take a moment to feel it.
Try taking a different route to work or school, lying on the grass, watching the clouds. Let yourself be a little romantic and you will see the world as magical.
Realize the seemingly impossible
Almost all of us have a person who does nothing but complain about his life when it is not what they want it to be. Why not try to change your life instead of complaining? "That teacher was so fussy, her tests made no sense." "I can't learn how to do that" ...
The truth is that complaining rarely changes anything, even making them fall behind. We need to be more proactive and active in everything and believe we can find a way to deal with it.

Boat services are canceled, airplanes neither arrive, nor take off for weeks, stores are closed and mail ceases to litter one’s threshold. The effect is as though some raw hand had turned all those enfilades inside out and wrapped the lining around the city... the fog is thick, blinding, and immobile... this is a time for reading, for burning electricity all day long, for going easy on self-deprecating thoughts of coffee, for listening to the BBC World Service, for going to bed early. In short, a time for self-oblivion, induced by a city that has ceased to be seen. Unwittingly, you take your cue from it, especially if, like it, you’ve got company. Having failed to be born here, you at least can take some pride in sharing its invisibility...” - Joseph Brodsky
