Life is interesting.
Death is eternal and boring
Life is unpredictable, surreal, beautiful, magical and enchanting with each moment and each breath
It is the music, the sunsets, the long slow kisses, the rainbows, the emotions, the risks, the adventures, the smell of the flowers, the glow of the stars, the warmth of the sun, the coolness of the spring breeze. It is the snowfall in winter and the leaves of all colors in the Autumn. Every turn is magic. We are mystified by our actions.
Why then do we waste it in the safety of our comfort zone? How often do you think about death? Once is too much. It will happen. It is a course of our life that will eventually greet us. Why then stop the amazing journey that is life with the thought of something you have no control over?
Take a moment to let that sink in.
When we are young we want to fall in love.
When we grow up we want a great job.
When we get older we want financial security.
When we retire we want a place to relax and play.
Now let us look between the lines.
Remember all those amazing ideas running through our heads?
Of course you do.
What are you waiting for?
I don’t know either.
This truly complex thing that houses blood, organs, muscles and a brain is a remarkable thing. More importantly, it gives you options to soar to the clouds.
It takes a strong person to be a dreamer. It takes a strong person to take the leap and pursue those dreams.
What fascinates me is that we lose ourselves in fantasies, action films and supernatural and rely on cinematic magic to help us escape our own lives, even for a few brief moments. The irony is that all the magic is around us. It is in the ability to breath in life each day. It is watching a human life grow. It is watching a plane fly through the sky and defy gravity. It is watching men watch us from space. It is about the endless possibilities available.
Maybe if we put the guns down, stop the hatred, look pass the prejudice, take those dreams we write on paper and take a chance. Even if each of us took one risk. Just one. That is 6.3 billion risks. We may not all achieve the goals we are looking for but just think about what a great world it would be if just a small percentage of those risks become realistic dreams. Wow.
Don’t wait for a catalyst or life changing event to get off your ass and become the person you want to be.
Here is your catalyst; the sunrise.
Make tomorrow the starting point of a life worth living.
Take advantage of your gift and make it special.
That is what I would like you to take away from this.
