As harsh as that may sound, we all only have one life. One chance to make things happen for us. Do you want to live your life by means of what others tell you?
Now, if you’re a drug addict reading this blog on some cosmic high, clearly what I’m saying does not apply. What I’m trying to say is… Life is too short to sit back and do things in the way other people want you to do them. I have this friend, Megan. It has always been her dream to go and work overseas (she is a highly talented hair stylist), and by god has she tried. She has recently gotten the opportunity to go and work in Dubai. And despite people telling her otherwise, she is willing to go and live HER dream. Her boyfriend is my fiances brother, we’re all really close. And by taking this job, it means she will be apart from not only her family and her home, but taking the chance in losing her relationship for 2 years. This hasn’t halted her natural drive though. She has faith that’s so strong, that her mentality is “if we’re meant to be together, we’ll find our way back to one another.” Some may call that naive, I call it brave.
I admire my friend for making her own opportunities, for taking risks and believing in herself. This is something I will take away and strive to do for myself too.
Thanks guuuurl. x
