    Living the best of you


    How many people out there are actually doing what they love and be lucky enough to get paid for it? How many times have you heard one saying that being a student was the best part of their life? I am not sure about you but i have been told so one time too many. Should not our lives be better and better each day?

      My friend once told me that only a fool will say that he has an interest in something but not be good at it. The question is, how many of us out there have truly discovered what they are born to do? Even if one has, how often does one get the chance to unleash the talent or skills  that they have for a living? Unfortunately I have no answers to all these.
      A five years old boy will be able to say without a doubt that he wants to be an astronaut but if i were to tell you the same thing, what will you think of me? The sad case of reality is that as you grow older your dreams grow smaller. As reality hits, we tend to settle for what is in front of us and choose to think that the dream you once had was just a dream. As you grow older, you choose to think that dream and reality belong to two different world.
      I believe that each and everyone of us are born with a purpose and a higher calling that is greater than our own. Decisions made in life should be based on your opinion and not the society. Dare to be different and do not settle for the second best. I am not promising that this is the key ingredient  to success and happiness but we should not rob ourselves the right to dream big and believe in it.
