Make Your Own Meaning of Life: A Simple Reminder

How you choose to interpret these three words is entirely up to you! 

Study these two images. The text appears exactly the same in each, yet the images highlight opposite views. One would make you think the poster (on social media) is bitterly disappointed with life- that nothing in life brings happiness. Contrarily, the lighter image sends a more cryptic message to the viewer. The image shows a girl swimming freely in the depths of vibrant blue water. "Surely she is happy?” thinks the viewer, but they can’t figure out how the text pairs with the image. That’s because we fear nothingness. How could nothing equal happiness? 

If we look hard enough, we can see faults in everything and everyone. If we rely on nothing, NOTHING = HAPPINESS 

I try to identify the positive message in online content as often as possible. However, some days I default to what most of us have been conditioned to believe – that life should be hard. 

Keep yourself in check and try to read the positive messages more often!
