For what it’s worth… It’s never
too late, or in my case too early,
to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit. Start whenever
You can change or stay the same,
There are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst
of it. I hope you make the best of it.
I hope you see things that
startle you. I hope you feel things
you never felt before.
I hope you meet people who have
a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you’re proud
of. And if you’re not,
I hope you have the courage to
start all over again.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
The above words by the late. F Scott Fitzgerald is one I’m glad I came upon. The awesome thing about life is that we have the ability to change and start all over again. And actually, it’s that easy- The first step is having the will, and we’ll go from there.
One of the best thing that ever happened to me is traveling out of the only country I knew to another, thousands of miles away. And actually, it’s not as bad as it seems. If I hadn’t left, I would have missed out on the most amazing opportunity of having the experience to see a whole different culture and people. To interact with people who do not care about past mistakes. To begin things on a clean and clear state. And most of all, to belong in community with a variety of citizens each from different nationalities and getting to learn and experience their way of life. Not to mention, the “amusing” characters you get to come across who make the perfect inspiration for writing.
The thing is, all these wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t taken that step and agreed to leave, knowing I would be happier. But then again, it doesn’t always work that way for everyone- and that’s Okay. What I’m trying to say is this- If change is the way for you, then by all means go headstrong into it. And if staying where you are at the moment, right now, is exactly where you need to be, then you have all the right in world to stay there. But remember, the moment you feel it isn’t working, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.
That’s it for today. And my submission for Writers Quote Wednesday. Till next time. ❤
