Taking Chances

For me, life is all about taking chances. We cannot just sit and wait for things to happen. We must have the initiative and determination to do things for our own. If we don't take chances or make choices we will never get to see what life really is. Time pass by really fast, I can remember me being just a little girl like it was yesterday. Every time I think about something bad that happened to me I can't stop saying to myself "if it wasn't for that experience i wouldn't be who I am right now". Every choice we make no matter how bad it turns out to be we have to face it with courage and knowledge.

My dad always said "every action has its reaction"and it is true. The reaction of an action that i thought that wouldn't affect no one maybe can change the world. I believe that with only a smile you can change the world. The first step to being successful and happy is to accept and love yourself.
Once you proudly love yourself you have to start risking perfect things for different ones. Imagine a world where everything is perfect and we have a stable life... Eventually it would be boring. We have to take chances. We have to risk it all to know and appreciate everything. Every little blessing we have came from a decision we took. If t weren't for the bad things we wouldn't appreciate the good ones. Many times we speak without knowing the real definition or meaning of the words so here it is..chances- the act of stepping outside your boundaries and doing something far from your own comfort zone, almost reckless even, that may be met with absolute success or outright failure.

If the outcome is an absolute success hooray ! if it was an outright failure you must have learned something about it and it does not matter how tiny that lesson is, it changed you. Everyday we change. We change our way of walking, thinking, dressing, and even eating. We must evolve, try new things, take chances, get out of our little comfort zone and start believing in ourselves, that way we can change the world.

Is it freedom?

Here on my little island everyone knows everybody else. There are no local news, there are just news. We are all exposed to the same things, such as schools, social lives, entertainment, etc. The island beliefs are the ones imposed by the dominant class, which usually is the one with more power, money, or both. Very often the individuals show collective actions or decisions because of the peer pressure that exists. People should learn and develop many individual traits and ways of thinking. In here everyone is aware of what the others think or do. Also, people make decisions thinking what others would say about it. I have never lived anywhere else so I wouldn't know if it is like this everywhere, but it has me sick of it. I would like to live on a free country where I can think and make my own decisions, trace my own path, not having to care what others think about it. And I'm not saying free country referring to a slave free one, im referring to a country where people does not get influenced by anyone or anything, where everybody can make their own lives freely and not be pursued by the peer pressure. Freedom is defined by a dictionary as "a free will". Who imposed us this way of life? Who imposed us this culture? .. Right, then there is no free will because everytime something comes up to my mind the law prohibits it. Or if it isn't the law the moral comes. The moral by a dictionary is "arising from conscience or the sense of right and wrong". But the conscience is build up from zero according to the society in which we are born so it is basically the same as the law. And I ask you, is there any freedom in all this?

Something to begin with <3

"A life lived in love will never be dull"-Leo Buscaglia

"Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one"-George

"Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise"-Louise Bogan

"We believe as much as we can. We would believe everything if we could"-William James

"By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist, we create it"- Nikos

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart"-Elizabeth Foley

& a little essay by myself:

Happiness is by definition the state to which all aspire. The search for happiness is a daily struggle for many. Personally I do not believe there exists a full happiness, I believe there can be moments of joy and passion that can last some time but all of a sudden all that dissapears. It is like a transitory pleasure which comes and goes unexpectedly. Many times we lie to ourselves about this so called happiness, just because of conformism or maybe pride. We should try and get the best of those short moments that fills us and keep the memories present because in the end that is what our life was. We should stop looking for that full happiness, which does not exists, and pursuit beauty, truth, freedom and above all things, love. If one gets to know and live by those things there will be many joy. We should experience and imagine, get to live our own pleasures and stories and forget about everything else.

"The greatest thing u'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return"-The Moulin Rouge
