When I was young, it was a common motif of children's shows and books to reach for the stars... and exactly what is stopping me from doing the same thing now? I have lots of aspirations, and none of them seem mediocre to me... I want to go to the greatest grad school to learn all of the necessary skills that I need for my dream job. I want to have my dream job, live comfortably in an apartment in a city that I love, have a family, and still have time to write, cook, and do yoga as hobbies.
That ideal future is a distant "maybe," but I believe in myself enough that I think I will be able to attain it, or something like it, anyways.
There are some visible barriers in my way at the moment: stress, money, time, distance and distractions. However, I think that, in time, I will be able to overcome these and at least be happy and comfortable in the life that I lead.
I want to be extraordinary and unafraid.
Why not be ambitious? Why not dream big? Why not set our sights on something that seems far away, if we know that we just may have a shot at it if we work hard enough?
This is how I want to live my life. I have never been much for settling in any aspect of my life. I may not be the best right now, but I am working hard to get there eventually.
Here is a quote to inspire you:
“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”- Roman Pain
