Holidays April 23, 2011

It’s Easter!

Which means the whole family gets together and does what it knows best, fight! Holidays make me realize the reason I left and the reason I’m never coming back.

Besides the whole thing is so fake. Suddenly everyone tries to behave like a good christian and goes to church, they even fast, or at least they try to… But the whole point is that they never do it cause they feel like it, but mostly cause they care what other people would tell about them. “Oh, he did not fast, he is not a believer” or something like that. Like they believe! It’s so frustrating to think that the people who actually say those things are the worst. The people who always fast and go to church and live by every rule the church gives them are usually the worst. They don’t even realize it. They think that they are so much better than anyone else.

Now let’s be reasonable. You don’t need to go to church to be a good person. You don’t need to fast or even celebrate Easter. You don’t need to be a christian or even believe in God. You don’t need any of these to be a good person or even better a great one!

Ambition April 22, 2011

There’s a poster in my living room that reads:

“Ambition

The world makes way for those who know where they are going”

Usually when people talk about ambition they refer to it as something bad, like someone driven/blinded by his ambitions can do something really bad to others. But I’m gonna have to disagree.

Ambition is what drives people to evolve. It’s what motivates them to follow their dreams. Ok, so some people driven by their ambitions, sometimes, tend to step on other peoples bodies, but nothing was conquered without any victims! And even though not many people admit it, we live in a world where the big fish eats the small. We strive to survive and make our dreams come true.

Oh, by the way dreams are ambitions! You can’t say you’re not ambitious if you have a dream or a desire. People without ambitions are like empty shells!

When I talk to others about stuff like that they always say that not all people are like that, not everyone is willing to sucrifice others people dreams in order to make their own come true. I have to admit, if I had a chance to make my ambitions come true but had to stain my hads with “blood” in the way, I would only care if it was someone’s I care about.

People don’t realise how many things they are willing to do in order to make themselves happy until the day comes when a chance finally shows up and then the only thing they have to do is grab it!

 

Shadows & Regrets

“We drive on and don’t look back
It doesn’t mean we can’t learn from our past”

I believe that there are only two ways you can live, staying put or moving forward. People are really afraid of change because of the fear of the unknown. But staying put can be as dangerous for them as moving into the new!

Personally, I can’t stay put. I try as much as I can to move forward, all the time. Of course it’s not always working cause sometimes I find myself trapped in situations that I can’t get out from. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t try to keep on moving!

I believe that everyone is afraid of change cause they never know if it will be for the best. They’re afraid they might fail on something or do something wrong. But life is not about not falling down, is about being able to stand right back up!

Myself, I can’t say that I’m not afraid. Change can be really challenging but I enjoy it, cause not changing would be disastrous for me. That’s why I don’t really question the decisions that got me to the point I am right now. No regrets, that’s my motto! And I can proudly say that I don’t have any! It’s a powerful thing the force of will. I made myself this way. I decided a long time ago that I’d never regret anything and 6 years later…here I am, not regreting my past! It’s kind of easy for me to live this way, cause after all these years I manage to know myself as good as I can, know where I stand and what I believe and I came to love myself even more but that actually means that I also love all the things that made me…well, me! All the right and bad decisions I made. There are all mine and I embrace them both!
