Henry David Thoreau once said that “most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” well, i say, prove him wrong. do not be submissive to this system we are seemingly trapped in. Stand up and fight for what you believe in: make a difference in the world with your words and your actions. study, not just for the grade requirement, but to learn and to satisfy your curiosity. work on something you are passionate about, not simply because it gives you the highest salary.
do not be caught up in the mundane and the everyday problems of living. because, if you are not doing something you like, then you are not living but merely surviving. and, even if you think you are doing the right thing, it might not be the right one for you. yet, note that pursuing your dreams and aspiration will not be an easy walk in the park. it will be lined with hardships and strewn with rocks of frustrations. it may sometimes feel like you are a little cat fighting against a big lion. yet, still. follow your dreams and make them come true. let the star in you shine. coz in each and everyone of us, there’s a music that people need to hear and a light that people need to see. and, mostly, because, whatever it is, when we do things we love, it will be worth it.
