The Matter of Life

We tend to say “tomorrow is another day”, what if we don’t have tomorrow? We plan a get-away a year from now, assuming we have another year. Saying time is money when time is ALL we have. Truth be told, money can be borrowed, yet time is not something that can be obtained. Once it’s gone it’s gone.


The majority of us are afraid to take risks and face challenges, learn to overcome your fears. 


We come across quotes that states: Live life to the fullest, have no regrets, don’t hold grudges, you only live once! These are not simple words with any importance, the individuals that expressed those words had experience such episodes. For instance, it is childish in any case to still hold grudges or hard feelings. Some of us still have such anger within us and it’s normal. But a misuse of feeling that doesn’t have anything good in store but negativity. Despite the fact that we know how short life can be we still do not apply these knowledge. I’m blame worthy of it myself. But I’ve come to realize anything can happen sooner rather than later. 


Think of incidents where you postponed, made excuses (maybe unintentionally) and accused others that surrounds you from stopping” you. Have you encountered any positive outcomes? I assume your answer is no. Now try to think what you can do, starting by yourself, and yourself only without anyone else, to prevent such incidents from happening once more. Of course you would be thinking: I should quit postponing and get it done with. Which is a excellent thought. But nothing will come from that thought if you do not take action and start making moves! Challenge yourself. 


Whatever your dream is, there is a way to make it happen. It is never too late to go for what you want in life. Life is too short as we already know. Live it now and live it with all your strength and passion. Do not keep it for another day, a day you might not have. Because now is all we have, and these dreams won’t chase themselves. While the ember is still lit, let it flame! Be bold about it, even if your circumstances are all odds against you. It’s just a way to test your abilities. How far are you willing to go for what you want?


I want to end this by saying whenever circumstances knock you down, STAND UP and knock it harder than it wrecked you. At the end of the day it’s your attitude that will determine whether your dreams are achieved.
