DREAMS ARE TO BE LIVED
AUTHOR/ WRITER: ANUOLUWA_D
It is not death most people are afraid of, it is getting to the end of life only to realize that you never truly lived. There was a hospital study where 100 elderly people facing death close to their last breath, they were asked to talk about their life’s biggest regret. Nearly all of them said they regretted not the things they did, but the things they didn’t do. The risk they never took, the dreams they did not pursue. I ask myself and you, “will the last word be if only I had?” Hey you, wake up! why do you exist? life is not meant to simply work out on its own. Do you just want to wait for the weekends? pay bills all your life?
No! no ! I don’t know much, but I know this that every person on this earth as a gift, and I apologize to the black community, but we can no longer pretend.
Martin Luther King, that man never had a dream, that dream had him. See we don’t choose dreams, dreams choose us, so the question is do we have the courage to grab the dream that picks us, that grabs us or would we let it get away and slip through?
I learnt a fact about airplanes though I have not been in one. It was so surprising when a pilot said many of the passengers think plane is dangerous to fly in, but he said actually it is much more dangerous for a plane to stay on the ground, he said because on the ground the plane start to “RUST, MALFUNCTION &WEAR” much faster than when it is in the air. Later, I thought ‘Yeah that makes perfect sense’ because planes where built to live in the sky, and every persons is built to live out the dream they have inside. So it is perhaps the saddest lost to live a life on the ground without ever Taking off.
Most of us are afraid of the thief that comes in the night to steal all of our things but there is a thief in your mind that is after your dreams his name is “DOUBT” If you see him, call the Cops because he his wanted for murder for he has killed more dreams than failure ever did and like a virus he would leave you blinded, divided and turn you into ! “Kinnd” you know what kinnd is? There are lot of kinnda people. You kinnda wanna correct change, if you kinnda want something, you kinnd get the result you want.
What is your dream? what ignite that spark? You can’t kinnda want that, you must want it with your whole heart.
Would you struggle? Hell yes you will, no way around it, you will fall many times but who is counting. Just remember there ain’t no such thing as a smooth mountain. There would be times that you get stressed, depressed but know that many has been critiqued that they can’t do something but now they are on top. “Struggle and Criticism” are perecusite for greatness that is the law of this universe and no one escapes it because pain is life. Don’t think twice, we have been given a gift that we call life so don’t blow it.
You are not defined by your past instead you are born new each moment so own it now. You better do what you have to before time runs out because there is no overtime in life no do-over. It might sound like am preaching but if we don’t use our gift, we might regret.
Be brave, you cannot go back and make A BRAND NEW BEGINNING but you can start now and make “A BRAND NEW ENDING”
