who do you want to be... continued

What do you want to do with your life? 

Do you want to be a singer? 
What do you want to tell the world in your songs? 
Do you want to make a record that earns you thousands of dollars or do you want to make a record that changes someone’s life? 
What do you define ‘worth’ as? 
Is it the car that you drive or the house that you live in? Is it the impact that your words have or is it the truth that you speak that makes your worth as a person? 

I believe that somewhere along the line the meaning of the question has been changed, when we are asked what we want to ‘do’ with our lives, instead of thinking about what occupation is going to define who we are, we should be considering what impact the things we do is going to have on the world. 

Do you want to change the world? Do you want to travel the world? Do you want to help people? To inspire people? Or help them see the greatness in themselves? Do you want to invent something or discover a cure? Do you want something simple, a loving home to raise children in? Or to bake bread that families can break over tea?

There are 525,600 minutes in a year - Each day you are given 1440 of those minutes, to do whatever you like with, but at the end of the day that clock resets, they do not transfer and you cant save them for later. At the end of each day, have you used those minutes or have you wasted them? Are you closer to achieving your dream? Have you made conscious decisions to be the person you decided you wanted to be? It is up to you to remember that you deserve your dream to come true, that you deserve good things to happen to you. So when you find yourself reflecting on the day and feeling as though you haven’t done anything ‘worthy’ that day, don’t get lost in the darkness or self pity, just make sure you wake up the next day and work twice as hard. Your ideas & your dreams may change over time or you may achieve your dream & you may be exactly the kind of person you want to be, so naturally your dreams will grow & develop as you grow as a person. I think this is one of the most frightening things about life; that nothing is certain, that at any given moment the rug can be ripped out from under you and your dreams are scattered.  You owe it to yourself to pick up the pieces, put them back together and get on with the life you have been given and to make it the life that you wished for & you dreamed of. 

Don't let someone else write your story
