An object in motion tends to stay in motion, while an object at rest tends to stay at rest. Remember that lesson on Newton’s Laws of Physics in High-school? It’s crazy how much we can see it play a part in our daily lives. It really is everywhere. You can see it and you can feel it.
This life is so short and there is endless possibilities of what can be done. Yet, at least here in America, I know the majority of the population simply works most daylight hours, maybe grab a bite to eat at a restaurant they’ve visited 59 times in the last year, then go to bed and start it all again in the morning. Now don’t misunderstand me, I’m not dissing anyone, I’m just wondering where the hell we went wrong. We’re all repetitively serving a society that lacks so many new experiences out there that are just waiting to be gained. Then cracking jokes about how we gave up our hopes and dreams long ago?! Wake Up! This is not the way it is supposed to be.
How much of your story are you actually writing?
Every human is uniquely talented in their own way. Yet most can’t afford to even find their true passion, because just being comfortable costs us every cent we have. We have a cookie cutter education system, robbing our children of their individuality, creativity, and imagination. We’re told from birth that the only way to travel, to experience, to LIVE, is to work and to pay and to settle. I’m here to remind you that that is bullsh*t. Never give up on finding and chasing your dreams, no matter how far fetched they may seem. Once you have them in your sights, you’ll realize, they may be closer than they appear.
Now I know its scary. It’s comfortable at work, its comfortable at home, its comfortable and safe here in this virtual box wrapped in chains… but why? Because we forgot what it feels like to have our soul filled with electricity? When was the last time your heart beat faster because you were excited by something you love? Whens the last time you did something that took away every other thought in your head? When was the last time you laughed so hard or smiled so much that your muscles ached? For too many of us, its been too long since we felt that rush.
Why chase anything else?
Don’t ever let yourself be robbed of your individuality. We’re all made unique for a reason and we need to expand ourselves. Look for your passion everywhere you can, even if you don’t know where to start. Meet everyone you can, even if your social anxiety is as bad as mine. Try as many new things as you can, even if it takes some time and effort. You’ll find your passion eventually, if you haven’t already.
Then, once you find it, make a game plan on how to build on it. Imagine the life you always wanted, then create it. Spend every free moment enhancing your life. I know those kitten videos are adorable, and that new meme is LIT, but what are you really doing? You’re distracting yourself from your own greatness. Do yourself a favor, and start by spending some time away from all distractions with nothing but your passion and your imagination. Don’t just say you should. ACTUALLY do it. See what you can come up with. You might start spending more time doing this once you realize the growth it promotes. Every idea builds a stepping stone you can lay down to create the path to your dreams. Keep building.
