get busy living or get busy dying

Suddenly the world stands in front of me with a diferent face. I am scared but I am motivated to face it. I don't want to think about what my life should be, especially when I am lonely. When I am so lonely, I am laden with so much agony that I get lost and could not find any way out. I hope writing this blog could moderate my pain but went speechless all of a sudden.

I have ever thought:

I could live the way a simple man did.
I could live in a world with trees and birds around me and winds visitng me sometimes.
I could live regardless of fame, position, compliments, and money.
I could live regardless of what job I would have.

When the world becomes so quiet, when I am alone, when I am with me, I get lost. What my life for?

If my life could be for nothing important, I could live an easy life, with no troubles about money, marriage or even family.

But I want my life to be important, at least to myself or further to other human beings. I want to work hard to fight for life.

Yet, I am painful. That is always due to the fact that I always get lost in the world. I can only feel when I am in pain. I feel pain and pain and pain, especially when I am alone.

A quote from a movie pops up in my mind: get busy living or get busy dying.

Perhaps it is the answer.

The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground. - Gilbert K. Chesterton

That quote is at the start of the movie Heaven is a Playground. I like basketball and I watched the movie when I was a teenager. I decided to watch it again a few weeks ago but I fell asleep before it ended because I was tired from all the work I do, and because it was terrible. You want to work hard? Why? Why? You must be a slave. Or not a slave and making a joke.
