“Always remember that behind every strong independent woman, there are days when she was alone and helpless. There are lessons she has learnt from life and there are stories of battles and struggles which she has fought alone. Beneath the shield of confidence and strength there is a plethora of sadness and pain which she has endured.”
“They say we have forever,– A WISE SOUL
but they don’t really know.
They say that we have a future,
but is it really guaranteed?
They say we have time to experience life,
but what if we don’t!
Let us live our lives like we don’t have time.
Let us live wildly.
Let us love freely and passionately.
And don’t assume we do what we do without having reasons.”
I love this quote/poem because it is so very true! In order to live a fulfilling life, I believe it involves taking risks and not letting opportunities pass you by. It involves chasing your dreams, standing up for what you believe in, and fighting for love. You can’t let the opinion of society hold you back. If you want to do something, you can’t always turn to others to decide for you! Because, putting your happiness in the hands of someone else will never truly satisfy you. You have no idea how much time you have on this earth. Hopefully you’ll get to live a long and fulfilling life- but some don’t. And you can’t just go about life saying ‘well I’m not going to be one of those people who don’t’- well, how do you know? You don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, so why wait to tell those close to you that you love them? Why wait to plan your future? Why wait to do something good for someone? Why wait to be the person you want to be? So, who’s to dictate the age you start ‘living’. You’re never too young or old to experience life in a greater intensity. You’re never too young or old to experience real love. You’re never too young to begin, neither are you too old to change.
As I went to purchase a new mascara, I looked for the exact same brand. I didn’t want to take the risk, even though I could end up with an even better one, because there was a chance that the different brand could be worse. So, I stuck with the safe option, because I wasn’t willing to take the risk.
Things as simple as this can open our eyes to a valuable life truth…
In life we tend to go with the safe options. We don’t like taking risks because we are afraid of the unknown. We are also afraid of change in a way. There’s this thought that is always hovering in the back of our mind saying, ‘well, it could be worse’. We forget that there is an equal chance that it could be better!
“I’ve been thinking a lot lately about taking chances, and how it’s really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you’re always glad you took it.”
“If you want it, go for it. Take a risk. Don’t always play it safe or you’ll die wondering.”
“Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom, it always ends up just the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each and every choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always. Be you, and be okay with it.”
“Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now.”
The trouble is you think you have time.
You truly don’t know how much you care about something until it’s lost.
If not now- then when?
The only thing we should fear is not taking chances.
Today is all you’ve got!
What you are seeking is seeking you.
In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
You might as well see so you don’t spend your life wandering or waiting.
You can’t change the past- so why dwell on it? Instead, change the future.

You may always love someone, but it doesn’t mean you’ll always be in-love with them.
