One thing I cannot and will not ever understand is how humans want to fit this certain mold. The American dream is what we all want right? To be married, hand in hand with your spouses looking out the window at that tire swing. Those images of “normal” have been pumped into our minds by our family, our friends, and the media, for a very long time now. I’m personally not one of those people who settle for normal. I want to live my life beyond “normal”. Work, marriage, kids, those things may happen no matter what type of life you lead. It’s also important not to lose sight of all else that matters to you. Your family may come first, but at one point they didn’t. Never lose sight of what came first when it was just you and your dreams.
Some say that everything happens for a reason. That may be true but you have to make some of those things happen. If you forget what it is you want, then you’ll just end up accepting whatever it is you get. Don’t just accept anything, make things happen for yourself. Every person forgets when they were this young and ambitious person before they were married or had kids or had to work overtime. You still are that person, you just have to dig deep to find him along with everything else you might have lost. If you have dreams, never stop chasing them, because if you lose them, you’ll just end up looking for them all over again.
