Every day we begin a new part of cultivating who we are in this ever-changing world. No matter how much you learn, it will never be as much as you will know the day after; ironically all we want is for life to change, yet we do not need to wish for this- it is inevitable. Life is funny like this, we sit back drinking tea or coffee hoping for change, but the moment we change our attitude we have already set the rest of our lives in a new direction. We may only have one body, yet we all live multiple lives while on this planet. We have the life we live alone, that only we see and only we truly understand. Then there is the life that strangers see, whom will never say a word to you as if you are simply an apparition in their life. The life that we live at school, work, on vacation- there is an infinite amount of lives we can live, yet typically people believe they only have their one life. I like to believe that I try to make the most of every moment, which does not always mean I make the best of decisions, but for whatever life I was living in that moment it was what I needed.
There are times that I do things, that in other situations, would not happen in a million years. My home life, for instance, would never in a million years get up and dance on an empty dance floor with a stranger just because they thought it would be fun, yet this has happened. Other parts of my mind have been so rapidly changed back and forth when my different mindsets fight. Part of me wants to be a carefree girl who dances the weekend away with friends, yet there’s the part of me that so strongly has a hold on me that makes this an impossibility unless the right people are there to get me out of my comfort zone.
There are billions of seconds that we experience during our lives and as the saying goes…
“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”
So why are we so stuck in our ways?
