Remember Why You’re Here

Here’s a question for you: Why are you here? I mean, WHY are you living? Have you ever contemplated that? “What’s the reason I’m here, living this life? What do I want out of this life? What do I want to do? What do I want to experience? Why?” We’re all so busy with the everyday – we live a fast paced life with endless
to-do lists and obligations. And with our phones and the internet, there’s an abundance of distractions
that the noise never stops. The only time we get a break is if
we MAKE TIME to rest. And a lot of us miss even that. So what’s the point? Why are we doing so much? To get some perspective, let’s consider this: At the end of your life, how would you want
to look back at your life? How would you want to feel? The truth is… You probably wouldn’t be thinking: “I should have been more productive. Or I should have worked more.” You probably could care less about whether you were good enough or doing enough. More likely … You’d be appreciating
all the small moments where you TRULY felt alive, and wishing you could have had more of those. There’s a popular article on the
top 5 regrets of the dying. Australian nurse Bronnie Ware spent several years caring for patients during the last
12 weeks of their lives, and would ask them if they had any regrets or anything they would do differently. These were the top 5 regrets of the dying: 1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. 2. I wish I hadn’t worked so much. 3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings. 4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. 5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. With this in mind, take some time to
remember why you’re here. Don’t forget the things that truly matter. Live your life the way you want to,
for yourself & not others. Live life to the fullest. Experience all that you can experience. Find your zest for life. Your passion. Your adventure. Your light. Have the courage to FEEL with all your heart – the sadness AND the joy. Feel everything. That is your GIFT as a human being. Spend time with the ones you love. Tell them you love them. Laugh with them. Learn from them. Have fun! Experience all the joys that life has to offer. Let yourself be truly happy in this current moment. Appreciate all the things you have to be grateful for. Do what makes you come alive. You are the most beautiful when you are fully ALIVE, beaming and excited for life. Think of those moments when life is
fun and worth living. Be intentional about creating more of those moments, as often as possible. Infuse them into your everyday. That is why you’re here. To come alive, to feel alive, to live a life worth living. So tell me, do you remember now? -And what we have here is Lavendaire in the forest. Look at that sheila. Go inside the hole! This hole. -Oh there’s a hole? -Right there, right there. Go, go, go, go, go. Careful of the giant spiders! [Laughing] Ooh, Frodo. You’re a hobbit, Frodo. [Singing] -You did it! -Rock on!


  1. I've been re watching this video since morning to really let all your words sink in. I really needed this. I am truly thankful to you, Aileen. xx

  2. I've been having a really hard week. Thank you for bringing light into my life 💕 I always look forward to your videos

  3. This video actually made me a bit emotional! I love how you can put this into words and visuals and I will definitely rewatch this video soon and several times even to remind myself of my WHY

  4. You make it so simple, i wish i could feel that, but is hard when your life is so dificult, but this video is so lovely

  5. If we're on the path of something great , then we also attract the people of that greatness and that mentality like you dear , you are amazing!!!
    You are like an angel , so pure and inspiring and changing people's lives by your wonderful content 👍👍 so much love from India 😍😍

  6. Wow, this really inspired me and I feel like I need to listen to this every morning to remind myself to live life to the fullest. I started to remember all the times I felt like myself the most and those times was really when I was really living. Now, I just want to do anything I can to be happy and actually live. This just changed me. 😂 Thank you for this!!!

  7. The cutest family vacation ever! Your brother has such a fun spirit, the entire family exuded love and fun being around his happy go lucky spirit! Thanks for sharing this…it is so sweet and pure🤗 Pretty Girl!

  8. I think my „why” is changing during this whole time. And now my „why” is because i want to be myself, to learn how to love and be love and how to be sensitive and brave at the same time. Love this video. Big inspiration ❤️😍💘

  9. whenever I ask or am asked "why are you living?" "why are you alive?" my answer is always "because I was born" or "because I was given this life?" but I think now I'm going to try and find my own answer.

  10. Aileen laughs so much wiyh her partner. Thats what i genuinely want omg. A partner and person i love who makes me feel light and like im dancing through life.

  11. Hey aileen love u sooooo much you teach me soooo much thank you for that from a small youtuber love u so much once again ❤😁

  12. Im tired of explaining to everything that i wanna do. Just one, I want to be free. Do what i wanna do without worry about judgement from my friend and family.

  13. 💕💕💕This is without a doubt my favourite Lavendaire video of all! Nothing quite puts it all into perspective like this. But it's not a reflection on regrets out of fear, more out of opportunity and minimising wastefulness 💕💕💕

  14. This video is honestly so inspiring. There’s no way I can’t love it 😍 I’m here to live my life to the fullest for me. I sometimes forget that

  15. Also, thank you for including the regrets of the dying, it really shed a new perspective that I never thought about before. I've had some relatives pass recently, and it reminds me of them and those moments of happiness!

  16. my WHY is this: i am here because God has created me to love me. this kind of love is difficult to fathom. but if i try to understand why i'm here with my own understanding, it will be useless for me, because i didn't make me. only the One who made me can tell me what i'm made for. and i cannot ask for another creation why i was made (e.g. the universe, other people, etc) because they were made for specific purposes too. and my life is not about me. and until i understand this, i will be running toward selfish ambitions & asking "what do i want? where do i want to be 10 years from now?" and all of it would still be guessing. i can still be an outstanding success and achieve all my goals according to the world's standard if i keep the discipline and work hard, but i can still miss my purpose in life. many people have discovered this the hard way that achieving success doesn't necessarily mean fulfilling their purpose. many successful people have admitted later in their lives how they wish they didn't work so hard, or crossed the line of their boundaries, or how they wish they have had kept their integrity. because feelings often lie, what feels right at the moment isn't probably what's right (you know the classics: "i don't know.. it felt right at the moment!"). because what's right doesn't always feel comfortable. my purpose is found in my Creator, in my Lord Jesus Christ. this paragraph is inspired & rephrased from the "Purpose Driven Life" book by Rick Warren. i hope more people read it and fight the hollow of their lives trying to understand "why do i still feel empty even after a period of joy achieving this and that?" – i've been there, gotten everything i ever wanted, and was broken hearted. i hope you read this and be moved by Christ. God bless.

  17. Thanks gal… for the lovely reminders!! I shall take one step back and look around and asked myself …. i love your content

  18. My love Aleen since i stopped watching your videos i felt blocked … lol i love you i love you a lot you and your brother are so lovely and cute 💋💖💖💖

  19. this video made me feel alive. there is a city that ive traveled to every year, that i love with all my heart. but money and purpose is always the obstacle. how can i survive just off of love? i would quit everything and run to that city but id have no job and no income. its difficult to pursue greater things when reality exists. i have to settle with vacations to the city. its enough to keep the fire of passion alive, but its not enough for me. i want to know every ounce of the city's history, culture, future, etc. but how is that something that could sustain me? 🙁

  20. Thank you for the video, I cry a little, big breath for myself I tried to advance in my life for around 2 years, I want to be stronger, but recently I feel so much lacking this video came at the right time
    (sorry for my bad English I'm a little French girl who is really bad with writing in English 🤭)

  21. I'm SO MOVED, i cannot stop crying. Thank you Aileen, really needed to hear this today. Was having a rough day, but you helped to end it well. Much love to you, this was such a beautiful video!!

  22. This made me cry because I‘ve been through a tough time where I didn’t even want to carry on living but just recently got better and happier🙃 This shows me how beautiful life can be if you look up to people that are already doing what you want to do and are living to their fullest thank you for being my biggest role model💓

  23. My why is learning to truly be alive and inspire as many people as possible with my art and my way of living and thinking💗 the thought that one day I could end up somewhere where I don’t want to be is scaring me so I‘m not gonna let others decide for me but do it myself! Even if no one supported me or even if I won’t have enough money in the future as an artist, I‘ll still strive towards this dream and make it come true💓 So that at the end of my life I can look back happily at my time here and don’t feel any regret but be fulfilled.
    Only then I can die in peace while others remember me with a smile on their face 💓👏🏻

  24. Please turn on subtitles for this video I like it and i want to learn English from your video but I don't see English subtitles created automatically. Please TT, hope u see my comment

  25. I'm already living my life to the fullest but I'm lucky to have great people that support me and help me achieve what I want from life. It's easier with others/help <3

  26. This is SO beautiful, I feel now so centered and awakened to live each second on these reasons and Why’s 💕 Thank you. ♥️☺️

  27. What a beautiful video. The message in it is so important and the edition was so sensible and made me enjoy to watch very much.

  28. This made me want to share somthing: I just got back from vacation and I miss that me, I was so happy so present and gratefull for every moment. The things that I’ve seen and the people I miss it all so much more then I thought. I don’t know how to accept it and move on without forgetting it but I don’t want to be stuck in the past

  29. Yes I have asked myself that question almost everyday. And that's why I am suicidal xD this is life is pointless if you really look at it
