Have you ever stopped for a moment and asked yourself if you are really living the life you want?
Our time in this world is a fleeting experience. It will be over before we even know it. And it is depressing to think that most people will never really have the chance to live their life the way they want to. It is almost like they have forgotten the idea of thinking about themselves and themselves alone. Every single day of their life is dedicated to making the dreams of other people come to life. Their efforts from the moment the sun rises are never really theirs.
This stranger walking down the street in Havana, Cuba, is not just a man. He may be living the best years of his life and on his way home to a loving family. Or he may be going home from grinding extra hours at the office, working for the dreams of his boss. We never know. What we can be sure about is how we live our own lives. Are you making the most out of the short time you are here? Or are you just going day by day, walking, but without any direction?
You may not have the answer to this question right now, or the answer may be too painful to accept. But like the street in this photograph, you are free to keep going, stop, or make a turn.
