Today, someone made a comment that was basically belittling those that want to do ore with their lives than what they're doing. Like they should just be content with the mediocre. That's never been my style. I've always had big aspirations and have always been certain said aspirations would come true.
If someone wants a change, why act like it's the most terrible thing in the world? People are constantly changing. Even those who are set in their ways do their own changing eventually. It's how the world works.
I don't want to do my job forever. I want to be a writer. I want to be financially independent. If that's a terrible dream, then let me continue to dream anyway.
The world is already ugly enough. Don't take aspirations away from people, even if you think they're dumb. Even if they don't fit into your plans. It's like this person I'm thinking of forgot that people do have lives outside of work. It's insane.
Eleanor Roosevelt had some fantastic quotes about life and dreams, so I'm going to leave you with them, for a positive note.
~“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
~“Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn
his back on life.”
~“Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.”
~“What could we accomplish if we knew we could not fail?”
~“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
~“Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.”
