Is it wrong to think of freedom? Is it wrong to think of a dream that you once wanted to accomplish? Where did all of our passions go? In a time where we used to believe in something. Where we actually wanted something in our lives and we went for it? What ever happened? For some reason, it is not the same anymore. Did you ever have something that you wanted so badly but in the end, for some reasons or another, you never got it? Whether due to fears, problems, lack of money or time, or something else, it seems that all we have so many years later is regret. For all of our hard work, what do we have to show for it? Is it really so impossible to dream of more? Of a better life?
It’s hard to believe that so much time is passing. Before we know it, we’re a year older and no steps closer towards fulfilling our dreams. And if we do nothing about it, another year will pass. And another and another. Why do we do this to ourselves? When did we have passion in our life? A yearning. Are we not allowed to have what we want anymore?
This way of life starts the same way with everyone else. When we are young, we have dreams. We may either try to go after our dreams and we fail, we may do nothing because we were sidetracked, or we may actually go after dreams, only to succeed and than go for bigger dreams. However, as time marches on, more commitments take up our time. A job, then a family. Maybe a house, a car, more material possessions. Then we need more and more. The house falls apart, the car breaks down, everything in life turns into dust. So we buy more. We work more in order to afford more. But is it worth it? Is it worth being an empty shell now that we have nothing left to live for?
The only question to ask yourself now is “What are you going to do about it?” Are you willing to make a change or be satisfied with the way you’re living life now? If you are happy in your life, are you doing what you want to do? Spending time with family, working at a job you enjoy, working to create a better life for yourself? What can you do now to make a better life for yourself? How do you put the zest back into your life? When you strive to find the answer, be sure to ask yourself what do you live for. Keep thinking to yourself “Why do I exist” and “What is my purpose?” Once you do that, you may find your answers.
