You May Say I'm A Dreamer, But I'm Not The Only One!

LIFE, what does this mean to you? Many of us are afraid of stepping out of our comfort zones and exploring or trying new things. This is because it is scientifically proven that as human beings we are afraid of change; we prefer the known opposed to unknown. But the question I pose is, What do we achieve by that? Growing up, always been a believer, I believed that life is too short, and if we put things off today because we think they can be done tomorrow, that is not true. What certainty do you have that you will awaken tomorrow morning? You don't have any...

My life hasn't been straight forward but I think at the age of 19, I've experienced things that many elders haven't and that is my fault..I don't even think it is a bad thing. Yes, I know some experiences have been difficult, but if I hadn't had taken a chance, I wouldn't have become the person I am today. Stepping into the unknown, shouldn't be a scary should be regconised as courage and determination..To me, stepping into the unknown translates to; stepping into life; life is the unknown. And if us, as human beings, begin to realise that we can  move forward to a better future. Don not be afraid, I have been afraid, afraid of what the outcome is going to be.. and now, many may say I live too much in the moment. But if we don't, how can we get and experience the 'unknown' to the fullest? One thing I know for sure is life is too short.

We need to realise that the path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it
doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark and we stood out into the unknown. One of my life's aim is to motivate people or to at least try to change one person's outlook of life. I know what it is to be afraid, I've been there but now I accept things as it is and make the most of a situation but most of all, live my life to the fullest. I remember quoting Dale Carnige in my validictory speech in high school..."Go with all your heart". It doesn't matter where you go, just go! Going into the unknown is fun and makes life's whole rollercoaster enjoyable.

LIVE IN THE MOMENT; Please appreciate that yesterday is a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day.


Finally...Dance as though no one is watching. Love as though you've never been hurt. Sing as though no one can hear you. Live as
though heaven is on earth.
