For You…

Our world is a mystery; we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that. And I’ve heard people say this over and over again like it’s a bad thing; like it’s a reason to laze around or simply skate through life, pretending that it’s not important.

I couldn’t disagree more. We may not know what’s coming next, but how boring would life be if we did? There wouldn’t be surprises of any kind, unexpected last-minute changes, or any point of wrapping presents for people. And, yes, there is tragedy and heartbreak, but knowing would only worsen the pain – especially when there isn’t anything we could do about it – and cause constant worry that can get in the way of the good moments. All we can do is make a few plans and live life to the fullest.

And if you’re someone who’s unsure of what you want – go find it. Figure out what you enjoy most in life – maybe make a list of all of the things you like doing on a day-to-day basis. Then, go find classes on the topic, or jobs you could apply for that would relate to you, because you are the only one who can truly make yourself happy – no one else can give you that complete satisfaction.

So, what are you waiting for? What you want is not likely to fall into your lap. Go get it! Have adventures, be brave, pay it forward, and stop caring about what other people think of you – just do. Defy the odds, have fun, and be who you’ve always wanted to be. 🙂 It’s the only way to live your life – for you.
