A reminder to myself,

I’m 19, in my first year of uni and currently in my flat at Sheffield University. I just wanted to make sure you’re still good, moral and understand what responsibility you have.

Earlier this week I was thinking about what the purpose of my life is and came to the sort of conclusion: I think the purpose is to lead the most interesting and most crazy life possible. Travel the world, see the wonders of the world, do extreme sports, study and learn, have children. Anything really, as long as its making me as happy as I can be. The second part is that I have to be good. I have to care. I have to look beyond my little selfish world and make decisions based on how it will affect everything around me. Not everyone does this, so if you can, have the amount of goodness in your heart that two-three people should have combined.

Whatever is going on in your life right now? I hope you’re still doing that. If not, why not? Is your reason really that good that is defends your actions and all its consequences? Look back at how you felt these years that I have lived now. Really try to remember all those feelings that would well up in you every time you saw or thought of all our moral obligations to animals, the world and our friends etc.

I’m vegan, hardly materialistic and trying to improve my carbon footprint. I hope you are too.
