“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” ~James Dean
It is better to have dreams than to start the day, or year, not knowing where you stand. Dreams and ambitions are your foundation, or personal goals and desires in life. Everyone has a dream but not everyone knows how to turn that dream into reality.
Don’t let anyone tell you what you are, or what you can do or can’t. You know yourself better than anyone else. Defy gravity if you can but also remember to keep your feet on the ground. Set a goal and plan ahead, imagine yourself in that dream and how it would be like to live the life you’ve always wanted. Use it as a motivation. It is all about convincing yourself that you can achieve your dreams.
Extroverts are seen as loud, gregarious, socially activate people who always enjoy parties and being part of the crowd and you will surely meet a lot of them when you travel. While that may be true, but that is not the true meaning of extroversion. Basically, an extrovert is a person who is energized by being around other people and being alone for a period of time tickles their restless bone. This is the opposite of an introvert who is energized by being alone. To be honest, I feel like extroverts are misunderstood and get bad reputation just because we are more expressive compared to the introverts. Here are some of the things that people are constantly assuming about the extroverts.
We are fearful of letting go of anything that is precious or valuable to us, because we think it is a part of us; a part of us that we can’t release. We don’t want to let go of what we think makes up our identity. But sometimes letting go is is the only way to move forward and the best thing that you can do for yourself.
“I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement. It’s a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible.“ – John Hanc, running writer
Last February 1, 2015, I ran my first 42km, the Condura Skyway Marathon. I was a little apprehensive because it was my first time to run a race that I think couldn’t finish. Honestly, it was an overwhelming and humbling experience. Maybe one day I’ll run the race again and get my time but for now, I’m just really thankful to have done it and finished injure-free.
