On Joy

It’s funny because when you’re a child, you believe you can be anything you want to be, go wherever you want to go. There’s no limit to what you can dream. You expect the unexpected, you believe in magic, in fairytales, and in possibilities. Then you grow older and that innocence is shattered and somewhere along the way the reality of life gets in the way and you’re hit by the realization that you can’t be all you wanted to be, you just might have to settle for al little bit less. Or, perhaps a variation of the original plan.

A kindergardener’s dream for the future would probably be an astronaut, an actor, or a teacher. Slowly, as you progress towards the days of your teens, these dreams get hidden underneath the pressure, workload, and life, in general.

So much so, that ‘Society’ plays a huge role in our lives. ‘What people might think’ is the new question, as opposed to our happiness and satisfaction. Many say that happiness lies in the small things in life. In opening unmarked doors, and crossing untraveled paths, talking to strangers and taking wrong turns. It’s easier to say and much tougher to do, but the secret to a life of adventure, a life of unparalleled joy lies in small, interesting choices along its course. Remembering, that future is in our hands while sailing the cruise along the sea of life, and most importantly; we shape our decisions and determine our own happiness.  Living life with no regrets is the key to achieving your true, magical dreams; and if not, achieving something better. tumblr_lbpmlsbhXa1qa44fmo1_1280
