As human beings, we are born to fulfill a cycle.
We learn to sit up and then to crawl.
To walk and talk and run.
We learn to tell the difference between right and wrong.
We learn to lie…
And that there are consequences to the decisions we make.
We learn to love… to yearn it… and to get our hearts broken.
Eventually we pick ourselves up and move on.
We study, we chase after our carreers and dreams… and then wonder if what we achieved makes us happy.
We doubt, we learn to fear… feel scared that we´re not good enough.
We find confidence, taste the sweet taste of victory… and the bitterness of loss.
We lose people we love, we meet strangers that change our lives
We meet the person we want to spend of our lives with.
We date, get married, have children and we watch them have children of their own.
At the end of it all, we all conclude that the biggest challenge any of us have is to discover who we really are and to be true to ourselves.
Phases… sometimes, if you miss one – the oportunity comes around again.
Others, you simply know in your heart that the last chance passed you by.
Not all people live their life according to the human being´s cycle – not all of us get to live the life we wanted for ourselves.
They say it´s never too late to go back on the things we left behind… if only that were true, unfortunetely – somethings can´t be undone or repeated.
Somethings can only be lived at their right moment.
I have no doubt in my mind that i´m going to go to varsity and get my degree in what I love to do.
Right now, I don´t know whether it´ll be this year, next year or after 2011.
The decision depends on what happens in the next few days.
We can´t control the people and events that affect our lives nor foresee tomorrows successes or failures by the decisions we make today.
Some moments we simply let go of, because we can´t live them on our own.
We give up our dreams investing in what we believe is more important and will make us happier, most importantly – to make someone we love happy.
These are the dreams that haunt us at 2:30am on a Sunday morning.
Even when you let go – they´re a part of you forever.
May the universe give us all another chance at conquering our dreams… and if it doesn´t, May we live at peace with ourselves knowing that we did our best.
"The curious case of Benjamin Button" - That´s the movie that got me thinking, I leave you with the part that inspired this post:
"It´s never too late... or, in my case, too early, to be whoever you want to be... There´s no time limit, start anytime you want... change or stay the same... there aren´t any rules... we can make the best or worst of it... I hope you make the best... I hope you see things that startle you. Feel things you´ve never felt before. I hope you meet people that have a different point of view. I hope you challenge yourself. I hope you stumble, and pick yourself up. I hope you live the life you wanted to... and if you haven´t, I hope you start all over again."
