Succeeding In What You Want is Scarier Than Not.
What do you call those moments that provide you with the rush of ecstasy running through your veins? Where you feel like you’re in a different world, rolling to levels this world alone cannot bring you. We all have those moments, and if we have not yet then I promise you that they are sure to come, where life feels like a dream. You find yourself begging Him to wake you up because it cannot be possible to live up to everything you are meant to and if it’s far from surreal, feeling the tease of it will only kill. I’ve been begging people to pinch me and wake me up from this dream over and over again and I have realized just this: This is my life, and this is what comes from it when I do justice to my heart.
I’ve realized more these days then I have ever before how much scarier it is to live up to your dreams and make them happen than it is to turn your back on them. I can’t put a number to the amount of people I know who have allowed this society, friends, family, and even the economy to make them walk away from all they wish to stand for because there’s SO many. I often find myself so close to doing so, but I’ve been lucky enough to realize before it’s too late that I’m not willing to live the rest of my life in regret. I think I give credit to those who turn their backs on what they want because it takes a lot of strength to walk away and know for the rest of your life that you did. But does it not take more to stand still and completely alone to achieve what the world tells you is a mere dream? When you follow your dreams, you reach places, levels that you cannot anywhere else or even in anything else. It’s because of this that fear lies within us, we fear not just failing but succeeding I think even more. When you’re on top of the world, the height regardless of the adrenaline it may give you is scary. It’s scary to be able to say that you’ve succeeded or that you still are. I know because I try everyday and some days I swear I’m convinced I’m gonna fall, but then I don’t. For that I’m thankful. It’s cause of this that I can stand alone and be not just content, but satisfied. Are you?
