Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about taking chances and doing things we habitually wouldn’t do. Typically, someone wouldn’t express themselves or randomly kiss the person they love or stand up to someone they don’t like or reach for a dream that may not even come true. We are so used to limiting ourselves and we become so routinely involved with what we think is normal, but why do we so badly want to be normal? It scares me to death to think that one day I might look back into my life and realize that I lived it painfully ordinary. We are the ones who make our own choices. Why do we as humans have to make things so god damn complicated for each other? If someone wants to be a teacher, then be a fucking teacher. If they want to travel the world, then travel the world. If we want to find a cure, then look for it and if someone doesn’t want to be man who works at a desk, then they don’t have to be him. I’ve just been thinking about all these things and how people let other individuals’ opinions overrule their beliefs and possibilities when really it’s just us against ourselves. We are our own worst enemies. This all just got me to thinking about how no matter the chance you take; whether the outcome is bad for good, you are always glad you took it.
So, here is a chance I am taking. I am allowing my messy life to be a laugh or even a comfort to people. Let’s see how it goes.
