@samuvaru The thing that scares me more than anything else is to be a man full of dreams. Dreams never chased and never fought for. Death does not scare me. Neither do suffering, loss, or pain. No, what scares me is the thought of being an old man who realized his calling early on, but never fought for it. Someone who had dreams and ideas, but never made them happen. I’ve been learning that having a passion for something does not mean that you are entitled to it, it means that you have the permission to fight for it. And you must fight for it. You must work for it. You must steward that desire well. If it’s a career, then work hard to become respected in your field, and be willing to serve. If it’s a lifestyle, then plan ahead. Make sacrifices now to secure a better future. Men, if it’s a woman, then fight for her no matter what. Become a student of her. Pay attention to every detail, and do not be afraid of pursuing her.
What do you want that you aren’t fighting for? What are the things that you desire, but won’t admit to yourself because it seems to big? Are you scared of putting in the work? Are you afraid that you won’t succeed? It’s okay. Take a deep breath. We all are.
To all of the things that you think you are not, I just want to say y o u a r e. You are so very strong. You are capable. You are disciplined. You are worth it. You are beautiful. You are the only you, and the world desperately needs you to be. Without you there is a gaping hole.
Fiercely pursue who you are.
