There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!
There are moments in life when you don't feel like picking yourself back up again..
When others try to lend a hand and no matter what, you won't raise your own to grab that hand and pull yourself back on your feet..
But even when you fall asleep at night and tell yourself tomorrow will be better,
And even when tomorrow isn't,
and the next day worse,
and the next..
Then tell yourself that the longer the rainstorm,
the bigger the rainbow!
The more new flowers grow!
The more life starts to live around you!
Not everything goes perfectly.
Sometimes you want to be positive but you're just so deep in your thoughts, you just can't stop stressing about any troubles you might have!
And that's okay!
But don't dwell on self-pity. No matter who you are, there's always going to be someone who has it worse.
And what you should realize is if there are those that are on their deathbed and can smile,
then so can you!
Don't aspire to get the sympathy of others for what you might lack-- instead, aspire to catch their admiration for the things you do with what you have!
No one is perfect, but we're all capable of being happy.
And maybe you and I won't be remembered by the whole 8 billion people of this world.
But there are always going to be those that love you as long as you show who you really are.
Even if like me, sometimes we don't believe anyone is ever going to like.. this..?
But it's the best feeling in the world when even when you insist that you're worth nothing, someone smiles at you and tells you it's okay,
because there's never going to be another you.
Don't waste your life thinking about what you could've been.
I'm here, among so many others, to tell you that you are who you are.
And that the world is beautiful.
No matter what background we come from, what religion, what beliefs.
We're all alive.
Breathing the same air,
living in the same world.
Look at the light in everything.
If you get hurt,
then tell yourself once you get back up, you're stronger than before.
Not until your last breath-- and even then!
Do not wish away your life, everything can be appreciated.
Even being hated lets you know that there are those who think strongly of you..
maybe not in a way you would like them to.
But learn why they hate you, and you'll learn a thing or two about being a better person. Even if you weren't in the wrong.
So sit back.
Lie on your back.
And just look at what you have in life.
Ignore all your problems for just a single moment where you can appreciate that no one else has ever been or will ever be like you.
I'm doing it now. And that's why I'm writing this. Because even if I end up getting people unwatch me for writing such "uninteresting" journals, or find me silly for spending my time on this, or not even know what to make of me at all.
Because I'm not here for anybody, I'm just doing this because I want to.
So with that!
Have a lovely day everyone!
Ah... but I must say.
I fully acknowledge the unfortunate children and individuals living in third world countries without that "chance" to make it big.
But my point isn't that we're all blessed with food and shelter.
And hey! I even had my point where I was deep in depression from family and school. Mainly, lack of anybody at school other than those who would bully me.
But I hope we can all realize that no matter what, we're here now.
And even if you really believe you have nothing, appreciate what you do have.
Stop looking at what you don't have.
Those starving children smiling into cameras are making the effort to smile despite the fact they may be dressed in almost nothing and worn out.
I was once bullied, I still have many factors in my life I don't want to talk about but very well could vent about.
But I'm not going to let that pull me back down because no matter what, it's not going to help me.
Please. And I'm not asking you to stop taking it out on me. Just stop taking it out on yourself.
But haha! Thank you for reading anyway!
And one last point!
I just wanted to make it clear..
Sure, some people are just lucky to have more than others. Children who get cancer-- let alone people who are born with disabilities.
But there's no point staying upset at something you have no control over. Instead, cherish the moments you have ;u;
I may not know what it is like to lead a lifestyle other than my own, but I believe everyone can find happiness if you just look hard enough. ^-^
