Here is a conclusion drawn from the ramblings of the mind, the stories of the broken, and the society at large:
Although our hearts are filled with desires to be extraordinary and to standout, we take the paved path. The one where the multitudes gather and walk in unison. We do this not because it is who we are. We do this because it's safe. Here we find the illusion of acceptance because of the absence of tension.
In our quest for unique, we become ordinary; just standing in the middle of normal trying to be extraordinary.
Visions die and dreams are no more. We are quited by the voices that encourage us to conform or be rejected. Our faith dissimshes, and we no longer believe the possibility of the impossible.
We'd like to escape this routine, but where do we start?
Let me ask you, could it be hidden in the heart? Or course not just any heart will do. It must be the heart of the child who was once you.
The heart of the child once full of adventure and belief. That one who asked a thousand questions of why and would never accept because I said so as a valid answer.
That child who could imagine "what if's" for hours even when your parents told you none of them were possible. The child that would one day fly, or invent a time machine, or rule the world.
The child who dreamed in color and painted a picture for all the world to see.
Could it be that in the heart of that child there is an extraordinary adult the world needs?
Let's reclaim the zeal that once lived inside. No more trodding safely down the paved path, bursting instead into the life we were created for where unique people like us dare to do extraordinary things.
