Make the world how you want it.
My dad owned his own business. Yet, since we were young he always preached these words, “Flying is my dream, you need to pursue your own.” He never expected us to get involved with taking over the business, in fact he deterred it. He wanted me, and my brothers, to find our own path, to make the world how we want it–to do the things that we wanted to do. To think big then work hard towards achieving our own goals. To blaze our own trails instead of following the beaten path. This type of support is priceless. I have the world as my canvas, and the freedom to paint any picture I can imagine.
Often times, we have people in our lives, or society in general, that expect certain things from us. They hold us to a certain caliber, constricting our ability to create the world how we want to imagine it. Instead, we need to conform to what already exists.
My question to you is, why? Why listen to others when this is your world too, you can lead it how you see fit. Why feel guilty if you want to break free from the typical constraint of school>university>marriage>kids>house/dog>35 years of working>retire> lifestyle?
If you could wholeheartedly choose without any influence or pressure….how would you live your life? Imagine it, then do it; because, in the end, why the hell not! It’s your life.
“Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.”--Helen Keller
