Henry David Thoreau went to live to the woods for 2 years, 2 months and 2 days in order to discover “what was life actually”, he wanted to live deliberately. Get the best of lifeand to be able to say proudly when he dies, that he did live. The time he lived there, he wasn’t lonely, even if other people say he was. His “friend” was Nature (sun, wind, rain, summer,winter…), instead of society itself.

You truly don’t have to worry about the consequences of every step you take in order to get to the other side of the road. Do things as you please,spontaneously. If not, that is one of the main reasons most people hold back on their dreams, because they worry too much about the future, of the events that may occur, and maybe it will be somethingthat they will have to deal with the rest of their lives.
Why does life have to be a destined torture? People do penance every day at work in order to own things (or try to own things) asmuch as they can. This is not necessary. Simplicity is needed, otherwise it is too much and we get lost in superfluous and external things as luxury and expenses, for example “a handsomeproperty”.
Every one of us walks at a different pace, march to a different beat. Each one of us should mind our own business, and do things as we can, not as others. We are not little ducklingsfollowing the one that is in front of us, we should go our own way, discover new paths. First, you should find your beat, the thing that moves you, because it is your responsibility.
Thoreau leftthe woods for the same reason he went there, he had more lives to live, and he couldn’t spend more time in that one.
I think we should enjoy the little things and happy moments life givesus, as to breathe “morning air”, because maybe they are not as insignificant details as they seem, they can be really big things, and we don’t even care.

“Love your Life, poor as it is”
