Life can be so beautiful if you truly know how to appreciate even the small details of it, but sadly this is not always easy. Why? Because of the unpredictable that makes us forget how to enjoy life and because of it we end up focusing on things that actually don’t matter at all. Life can be challenging, harsh, horrible but overall, you just live once so why not try (at least) to treat the ugly parts of it as something that had to happen in order for you to learn. Sure, we all have different life paths, some of us will have a quiet life, while others will go through challenging stuff (divorces, deaths, health issues, accidents etc.). It’s not easy, never said it was.
Most of us forget how to live. We settle. We take everything for granted until we get old and until, eventually, we die. How sad that is.
But, what if?
What if we see things differently? What if we stop settling for our ‘normal’ lives? What if tomorrow you decide to move to another country because you just want to live a little? I was always scared of having a boring life. I was scared that at my age I would end up living with my parents. I thought I would never get the chance to fly on a plane or even travel by my own. I thought that I wasn’t good at many things…until I decided to actually prove that wrong and guess what? I actually did it.
I’m still scared of staying in this comfort zone and that’s why I’m always trying to challenge myself. It’s not my duty to make others feel the same but god damn, I wish they could just stop a bit and actually realize that they are going nowhere. But in the end, everyone is different. Everyone has the power to change the direction of their lives but for some reason, they are just not capable of it or maybe they just don’t realize they can?
Dare to live your life as you envision. Dare to live your wildest dreams. Be kind. Be happy. Be You. Someone wise once said “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” So just go for it! 🙂
