Infinite Possibilities


“The infinite possibilities each day holds should stagger the mind. The sheer number of experiences I could have is uncountable, breathtaking. We live trapped in loops, reliving a few days over and over, and we envision only a handful of paths laid out ahead of us. We see the same things each day, we respond the same way, we think the same thoughts, each day a slight variation on the last, every moment smoothly following the gentle curves of societal norms.

We act like, if we just get through today, tomorrow our dreams will come back to us.

I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know how to jolt myself into seeing what each moment could become. But I do know one thing: the solution doesn’t involve watering down my every little idea and creative impulse for the sake of some day easing my fit into a mold. It doesn’t involve tempering my life to better fit someone’s expectations.

It doesn’t involve constantly holding back for fear of shaking things up.”

Don’t just read this and say “hey what a great quote.” Do something. Be assertive. Don’t just accept that things aren’t exactly how you want them.
