The dash

“Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s okay. You’re here to live your life, not to make everyone understand.” – Banksy

You know what’s easy?

Spending your life wishing for “enough.” Enough money, enough food, enough sleep, enough leisure time. You wish your life away wanting comfort and safety.

Life is neither comfortable nor safe.

Life is a struggle. Always moving one second at a time towards death.

We are born and then we die. What we do in between either echoes in eternity or is forgotten the moment we die.

What we do in the dash. What we build, what we love…what we lived for, what we were willing to die for.

Make no mistake. No one ever settled for less than what they were capable of and didn’t regret it in the end.

So, what are you capable of?

How can you know unless you push yourself? Unless you dream, imagine, and aspire to reach those dreams?

Unless you step outside of your comfort zone, unless you set yourself up for failure, you’ll never live life the way it’s meant to be lived.

You have this one life. This one chance.

Make it count.

  1. The image pulled me to the post. It really is true isn’t it. Our life is just that after we die.

    Really would it matter what we did? So why to worry about all the insignificant stuff when we can do what we really want to do.

    At least there will be mental satisfaction that we did what we liked whether we failed or succeeded.

    Great post!
