I’m sure everyone has a dream. It could be a dream to open a corner bakery or become the President of the United States. Whatever it is, the only way we can achieve that dream is to walk. I see my friends wanting to do something but for some reason they fail to see that they’re not moving towards their dream but insist on a standstill. People often put walls up on this journey to a dream. They say “I’m not going to do it now because I’m going to wait till this part of my life is over before I can start” or “I’m not going to go on a diet until after Mom’s birthday buffet,”. It’s sorta the same concept. Although that’s fine to put walls up I think the major obstacle is when people push those walls further along the line than the point on which they were built. That means you not doing anything about your sole purpose in life expands.
It’s almost human to do that I guess. To push it away. We reject our Mother’s advice when we’re teenagers, junk food tastes better than celery, drinking and doing drugs is easier than facing something that we’ve always wanted to hide. But know that just as you put off that “diet” even after Mom’s birthday buffet – you are leading yourself to a much lower position in your life than you sought out in the first place. You see your life can go two ways. One way goes to life to the full and the other way can lead to just the opposite. Don’t let the walls that you build yourself lead you in the wrong direction.
I think we sometimes feel that we’re helpless against what we build ourselves. It’s easier to just eat it. It’s easier to just not do it. But as they all say, nothing worth fighting for was ever easy. Don’t delay life, we can’t wait for our lives to start. It already started when we started having dreams.
