This Life is the Only Thing We will Ever Know
That is the God honest truth.
The video above is by one of my favorite YouTubers WongFuProductions. I love pretty much every single video they have ever made. They examine life through glasses of people who are looking to grow through self actualization. There is maturity in their words and thoughts that is more than clear in the production and writing of their work. This type of thinking and thought process seems to be long forgotten in both society and Hollywood.
Wong Fu must have been sent by God because this video is the thing I needed to see tonight. I needed a post of inspiration. Something to make me understand why I must follow my dreams and desires and not get detoured by life, the what-ifs, and the self doubts. If our dream is what we want, we should make it happen. This is the only life we will know. Do you really want to sit on the sidelines and watch it go by? Do you want to be the person sitting there and envying the players or do you want to the quarterback?
Me? I have to play the game. I cannot sit around. I get so tired of seeing people around me make it happen with their passions and desires that I… I get… geez… I get lazy. I mean, at the end of the day I am the only one setting up my own hurdles and then I get mad that they are there. I function in chaos because I am so used to it. I am so used to struggling that when things go smooth I feel as though I have to put a mental hurtle up because it can’t possibly go this easy. I know I need to change this about myself.
However, I cannot do this anymore. I can no longer detour greatness. I have everything that I will ever need to be successful and now I’m just realizing that I am not giving it my 100% all. That will change.
Because it’s our life.. and why not…
…Why not make it everything that you want it to be?
Thank You Wong Fu for the reminder.
