I’m feeling sad tonight for some reason. Thinking about life, dreams, plans…
Life is an interesting thing, it’s like a script you write, direct and act in.
You always face new challenges and you either do everything you can to overcome them or simply give up. Choosing the latter is easier because in this case you fall back into your comfort zone, into the way of living that you are used to, and complain about how unfair this life is and how nothing ever works for you.
Overcoming the obstacles is scary, there is no way to know what’s waiting for you on the other side. Your life may change and you may get what you want, or not, but there is a 50/50 chance. When you don’t step up though there is a zero chance of getting what you are dreaming of.
You may ask yourself why some people always get what they want but you don’t. I truly believe that there is always a reason for everything in this world. I’ve noticed that when you get obsessed with something, you want it so badly it hurts, it always slips away but when you let it go it comes to you. Those people that always get what they want are usually happy, content and believe in themselves, believe that everything will be the way they want.
So what is the answer then? How can you be focused on your dreams without getting too obsessed?
I think it’s a bit like walking on thin ice. You should keep the clear image of what you want but also accept the fact that it’s possible you might not get it, and it’s not the end of the world if this happens. You should keep overcoming all the obstacles between you and your dreams but leave room for changes, improvements or simply new dreams. It happens often when what you want is in fact not what you need. You may sacrifice so much for it but be unsatisfied and unhappy when you finally get it.
That’s why you should never be obsessed with anything. Dreams are great, wonderful, they help us live and move forward but at times we forget that life is here and now, with people that surround us, love us and who we love. We work for the future which is awesome, but why do we forget about the present so often?
I feel like when you have a dream, when you know this is what makes you happy, this is what gives you wings and helps you fly, you are a lucky one. Lots of people live someone else’s lives, work the jobs they hate, marry the people they don’t love… Why? What for?
I don’t know how many lives we have, but I know I’m alive now and I want to do what makes me happy, be with the people I love and who love me. I want to learn how to be calm, poised and unafraid, but in the end it’s all about the journey not the destination, so I’m going to enjoy every bit of it and work on getting better, stay focused on my dreams and always leave room for changes. That’s what matters, right?
