Some people say that nothing ever changes, but that’s not true. The truth is that everything changes – constantly, every second of every day. Your life changes with every breath you take and every step you either take or decide not to take. Change is the only thing that never changes, and even that might not be true.
Change doesn’t require more than a second. One moment you were miserable and then something happens and the world becomes a fluffy pink place of happiness. And then, two seconds later another change occurs and life becomes an endless river of misery. Change is part of everything we do, everything we think and even all the things we don’t do or won’t even dare to think about. It’s all changing and shifting, and it will never stop even when we’re gone.
An idea can grow to define or destroy you
Yesterday I didn’t care. Yesterday I was fine. Today I almost dare to dream and it scares me so much that I fear I already ruined it anyway. But it’s done now. The change is there and I care. I really, really do care. So much that I’m almost paralysed by the fear of it being just another fleeing little idea that proves to be totally insignificant and stupid. Yesterday I was content and now I’m everything but.
The trouble is, you think you have time
Change is what makes life worth living, even if it scares us half to death. Change doesn’t care about our fears it happens anyway, for better or for worse. So there really is no choice about the change – just the direction it’s going to take. Will it be another regret? Another dream seemingly buried so deep it won’t ever come out again – until it does? Or will it be the start of something truly new?
There is no try
There shouldn’t even be a question, but sadly there is. I’m prepared for the worst, but I also can’t stop myself from moving forward. Can’t stop myself from dreaming. So please: Be sincere. Be something more than a fleeing insanity.
