Never stop dreaming, 'cause the day you stop dreaming, is the day you stop living.

Don’t Miss Your Life

3 Comments

Today’s post will be short and to the point.

Take a step back and observe your life. Do you do things that are fun? Do you spend time with family and friends? Or are your days filled with work and responsibilities and not an ounce of fun and relaxation?

If that’s the case, and even if it’s not, take four minutes to listen to this song and watch the video. Phil Vassar shows just how important it is to keep in mind what really matters in life.

This song brings me to tears every time I listen to it, because the truth is harsh and shown so spectacularly well in this song. Remember that sometimes it’s OK to mess up and to be a bit lax with your responsibilities, to say no and go do something not related to work. And most importantly, please remember:

Don’t miss your life.

I'm a writer, a reader, a gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

  1. Well said, Natasha! I love your message here. When I was an actress prior to writing, and almost as obsessed with that as I now ;), my acting teacher told me one of the most important things an artist can do is LIVE. How can we express ourselves and continually create with out real-life experience? Really struck me.

    • Thank you! That really is true. As artists, we have to live and take a look at everything around us. We have to experience things, or else where will our creativity and inspiration ever come from?
