The crazy thing about dreams is that they seem so far fetched, so far away. They force us to challenge our innermost selves and risk losing it…. all. The constant feeling of whether or not you’re good enough is never too far away and the sound of success can be painful when it’s close but not coming your way. Words cannot explain how a person feels when they have a dream. The fear of watching what one wants fade is not an easy thing. Nor should it come easy. One should fight for what they want and most people never do. Something happens and they quit,walk away, block out all ambition, and settle for a dime of their worth. So, what there’s a little competition that costs a whole lot of ambition. I say try, fail, try, fail, try, try, try, try, fail, win, lose, win ,win, lose, WIN, and fail again. You never do win when you’re chasing dreams, because the first dream is only the beginning. They should not stop, they should multiply and the only thing that should stop you is Death. What follows should be something so much more beautiful and telling of the life you lived. The satisfaction of knowing you fulfilled God’s purpose for you on Earth. The satisfaction of knowing that you made him smile and being able to watch from above what you left down below. Knowing that what you did will help people, who aren’t quite where you are, get to where you are. Finally seeing God and knowing that you accomplished what he created you for in life; that is success. If God, the creator of all living things, put something in your heart then nothing should stop you. Nothing.
This is true but people don’t care, they rather be dumbed down by their entertainment. They’re so distracted by the entertainment, they don’t care about the real problems in the world. Then they complain about their lives and they don’t think they’re to blame, they can’t see that when we bleed, we bleed the same. People rather pay to get drunk, watch sports and it’s only people throwing a ball to each other, or beating the shit out of each other and they pay to watch this shit. We need empathy again. Empathy is the capacity to recognize and share feelings that are being experienced by another sentient or semi-sentient being. Someone may need to have a certain amount of empathy before they are able to feel compassion. It’s time to wake up and start realizing this.
