“When I'm singing, I'm happy.
I'm doing what I can do
and this is my contribution to life”
I think it is better to do what you truly love to do than to live with regrets of should’ve would’ve could’ve. It becomes hard to forget all the chances we never took and the opportunities we allowed to slip by.
I say, if something stays up in your mind and you love to do it, then do it. Sure, we must take cautionary views because we do not know what tomorrow will bring, but I think it is better to live through the day with chances being taken at doing something that is in your heart.
Your journey may bring you to a solitary state if it is not something that your family or peers agree with. Many people suffer the same, believing that they should make everybody else happy by doing what is expected of you by others. Instead of following through on your own dreams, they may make you feel that you have to fit into their plans for you somehow.
But a new year is about to start. A new era of going the extra mile to experience genuine smiles and less time seeing the stars lose their glitter.
Time to settle on the song and dance that makes you feel good. Time to free your mind ofdoubts and dance in heaven. Time to apply your own ingenuity into the world without fearing it. Time to go to bed with dreams and wake up with achievements.
If you keep in mind that truth that everybody is wired different, you will realize that it is okay to have different thoughts for your now and tomorrow than your culture or tradition may have destined for you. Time to walk more on faith. Time to clear the path for more. Get your more and be you because there is nothing wrong with being you-tiful.
I think 2017 is going to be a great year. How about you?
