Day 363 – I understand…


I understand. You like being lazy, you always seek for the easy way out and don’t feel like doing anything. I understand. You think you still have some more years before starting to work at that big project you planned for a while. I understand. The world is too fast for you and your passion can wait, it’s not going anywhere anyway.

I understand because I was you many years ago and I had to loose everything in order to change everything. I used to think that dreams can wait, that everything will fall at my feet, that the world isn’t going anywhere for me to explore. So I have waited. I have waited for so long that by the time I woke up it was almost a little to late. The longer you wait, the harder it gets, the more the years pass by you, the bigger the sacrifices you have to make in order to become the person you know you are. And when you look back, when you are giving your everything to stay on float, you will realize how you have wasted all that time and all those years and you will want to go back in time and slap your lazy self to wake up.

I understand. I created a small bubble for myself for many years and whenever I stepped out of my comfort zone I took three steps back and returned to that small bubble of mine. So, wake up! Don’t waste time and never loose youself into that lazy, person. Your comfort zone is just an impediment between you and your dream. And yes, without that lazy person you wouldn’t have dreams in the first place, but there is such a thing as waiting too long and although it’s never to late to walk on your path, the price you pay is bigger, the obstacles almost impossible to overcome. Never take the easy way out, you’ll sleep more, have fun more, but the entire point is to discover yourself and overcome your own fears. Wake up! Live your dream starting now! The world isn’t going anywhere, but it will never wait for you to discover it!
