“…May you live each day with no regret; make the most of every chance you get. Let your eyes get wide when you look at the stars with the same sense of wonder as a child’s heart…”
Where are these lyrics from, you ask? A little song called, “This Little Light of Mine.” Pretty deep shit, right? I am a verbose (look it up) cherub so I’ll try to keep it short and sweet today. I am not here to preach to you about love (at least not the significant other type of love.) You get enough of that on Twitter. No, I am here to ask you a simple question… When was the last time you felt passionate about something? Not that, “these-Jordans-dropped-today-let-me-go-get-in-line-to-cop-them” passion. I am talking about that “Turn your back to the crowd because they don’t see or understand your vision” passion. That “Stand on a table and scream at the top of your lungs just to make sure that not one ear hasn’t heard you”, passion. That passion that keeps you up at night waiting for the next day because there is just so much to conquer, so much to share, so much to CHANGE!
The sad thing is, the last time most of you felt real passion for anything, you were little tikes. Why is that? Some of you will argue that life makes you grow up. Congratulations, you’re a fool. If you believe that your dreams and desires should change because you’ve aged, you’re doing an injustice to that child that lived inside of you that believed anything was possible. So what you’re tired?!?! Who cares that you worked all day!?!? Alright sure, you have to cook dinner for yourself or your family… WHY DO THESE THINGS MAKE YOU LOSE SIGHT OF YOUR DREAMS!?!?!
I am not asking for acts of extreme stupidity. I am asking for you to truly find your passion and follow it. Go broke. Go Hungry. Cry your heart out because you don’t know how you’re going to get through…Then do the unthinkable and surpass your trials. Every day people are told what they can’t accomplish. People get laughed at for having dreams. Don’t let the incredulous steal your light. Always remember that people tend to hate things that they don’t understand. Make them see your dream by turning it into reality. No one will ever fight your battles, go through your struggles, or accomplish your dreams for you. All I am asking for is a small revolution inside yourself. Once it starts there, others will catch on. Will you fight for your dreams or let people steal your light?
“…Hold on to your dreams. Don’t ever let go. There’s a fire inside you burning with hope…”
