Looking back on what I’ve become, I try to accept all my flaws, all the mistakes that I have made. I understand that life is a journey. I know that living in a small bubble will never allow me to achieve my dreams and that fear is just a really warped form of excitement. If you never push the boundaries, you will stay in the same place.
When I meet people for the first time, I like to imagine them in an invisible box. Some people break free of the box straight away, but others need a little help to climb out of the box or maybe just to simply open the door. We tend to feel trapped by our lives when we all have the ability to change if we really want to. People say you cannot change the person that you are; that’s your character. Does that make the way that Criminals act, part of their character? Do people act a certain way because it’s in their DNA? We all have a choice. You either let your past affect you and re-write history all over again, or you wake up and make a change. We can all learn, the smartest people in the world are all still learning, they don’t just stop because the world thinks they’ve peaked. Be the change you want to see in the world, support all of the small business’, wake up every morning and check in on a friend, make it your mission to check in on one person a day. Smile at a stranger on the tube, creep people out, one day someone will smile back, and you never know, you could have made their day. Make a joke with the guy in the queue, could be the love of your life, sing at any given opportunity (who cares if you’re a bad singer) it will make somebody smile. In a world where depression is so common, isn’t it time we all started spreading joy, let us be as happy as they are in the movies, what’s stopping us?
Remember we all feel those same emotions, we all feel like the world gets too much sometimes. Life would be boring if it was simple, so just laugh at the problems. I believe we all have the power to make a change, I’m not capable of changing the world single-handedly but if this post gives someone the courage to try something new, or motivates someone to push themselves then I’ve made a tiny impact on the world. Hopefully, my tiny impact will start a ripple effect of others trying to spread the same love and positivity as me.
