My first year of university is about to end and, looking back, I think it has probably been as a whole the best year of my life. I've learnt so much, but what I am most thankful for is that I think I've learnt to live life at its fullest so much more.
This year, I've done things I thought I would never dare to do. I've acted crazy, talked crazy, but have been completely real. I've failed, but I know that I tried with all my heart and gave everything of me, everything I had. I've enjoyed every. damn. minute of the journey.
And looking at the people I've left behind, I realize that many of them haven't been as lucky as me. I feel like they are not living, but merely existing. And that makes me sad. Life is short, but they think its long. We should cherish every minute of every hour of every day.
So this week, my blog will be about life. About life and actually living it.
Go now, and live.
Experience. Dream. Risk. Close your eyes and jump. Enjoy the freefall. Choose exhilaration over comfort. Choose magic over predictability. Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of everyday life. Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut. Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to another. Make millions of mistakes so that you will know how to choose what you really need. Know when to hold on and when to let go. Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high and your spirit free. Embrace the darkness along with your light. Be wrong every once in a while, and don't be afraid to admit it. Awaken to the brilliance in ordinary moments. Tell the truth about yourself no matter what the cost. Own your reality without apology. See goodness in the world. Be bold. Be fierce. Be grateful. Be wild, crazy and gloriously free. Be you.
Go now, and live.
I woke up this morning with a smile on my face and nobody's gonna bring me down today.
