I have to say something real quickly here, because if I don't I think I might just explode, and thats no good!
Here I go...
I guess I'll start with a story.
There was this girl and she had a million dreams in life. Most of her dreams included traveling and seeing the world, then there were a few about falling in love and just being happy.
Throughout the years her dreams grew bigger and bigger until all she could think about was fulfilling those dreams.
But she thought "These are only dreams, and dreams are not meant to come true"
So she decided to hang on to society's unusual idea of normal.
But eventually, she got bored...very bored.
And her dreams came back to haunt her.
Finally, after living into society's mold for a while she decided that even though it seemed right to be "normal" that it really didn't feel right.
She stepped out of the mold and made her own mold, that changed day after day with whatever she desired.
Of course, when she spoke of her dreams people told her that they weren't "safe", they weren't stable, they weren't fulfillable.
But this girl REFUSED to listen. She knew what felt right. Besides, why would she want to be safe, stable, and live life with no risks?
So story goes, this girl didn't listen to those people (wether it was her friends, teachers, or even her own family) but she decided to follow her dreams and she lived life with no regrets.
There is this other girl.
Who was afraid of what life could offer her. She was afraid because she was taught to be afraid.
Someone would tell her, "Don't do that, thats not how things are ought to be done. Follow life my way and I will love you forever"
Of course this girl did not want to upset this person and so she followed life down a path full of mediocrity and plain boring-ness.
Sometimes this girl would sit and wonder what life was like out of the 4 walls she was trapped in. Could it be that other people lived there life different from hers?
She had dreams, but was too afraid to fulfill them.
She had chances to take those dreams and run, but let them pass her by because she let society choose her path.
Now she sits ALONE, wondering what life could have been for her. She envies the girl who lived her dreams, and she wishes nothing more than to restart and live her life the other way.
But she can't.
even if she was given the chance to live again,
do you think she would choose the different path?
So, heres what I have to say...
Every day we are faced with HUNDREDS of different choices.
Wether they be about what time we wake up, if we take the expressway or back roads, or even what shoes to wear. Either way the choices we make affect us that day.
But when an opportunity comes up and you have to the choice to take it or leave it,
well, that choice could affect the rest of your life.
Do you want to say no that opportunity?
and for the rest of you life wonder if you made the right choice?
If you say no, think about what you're missing.
If you say yes, whats to miss? Your bedroom in your small town where society controls your every move?
I hate to see people give up there dreams and waste them on "unliving" moments.
You only may have this ONE chance, PLEASE don't let it pass you by.
Are YOU girl 1 or girl 2?
