It’s the inevitable truth.
Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, we are dying.
Every step we take leads us closer to death.
But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t move.
It means we should move more. But in our own direction.
We should embrace life, every inch of it, throw ourselves at it and hope that we can make something of ourselves. Make ourselves more than we already are.
It makes me wonder… what am I doing, letting my biggest fear be something I can’t avoid?
I should take everything as it comes. Injections that’ll reduce my chance of dying? Sure, come at me. Heights? Why the hell not, I should get to see the world from a different point of view. Roller-coasters? Everyone needs their shot of adrenaline don’t they.
And yet, as much as I think like this, I can’t put it into practice.
I guess Nietzsche was kind of right when he said we live a life of obedience.
We do, don’t we? We call ourselves individuals, but in the end we’re all the same. We follow the rules of ” The Man “. We submit and comply. Yet again, another inevitable, our destiny to be disciplined.
I guess the point of this post is …
I want us, humans, as a collective, to be able to just… pause. For a minute. To look at what we’ve done, what we’ve become, where we’re headed. See where the steps we’re taking are leading us. See if we like the direction we’re taking.
And if we don’t like it…
Even if it scares us…
I want us to able to take a step in a different direction.
I want us to be able to be unafraid to chase our dreams.
