Standing for what you believe in

We see films everyday that tell you you are going to be successful at the climax of the movie, life is not a movie. Here, it is very hard to think and speak the same way. You may think so, but do you always say right out what you feel about something. Why do we do this? Lie to ourself and to others? Because we want to get along, to belong. No one belongs, everyone is unique, everyone feels differently. We have to learn to embrace and accept it.

Do you know why writers of times before us did things we can't even dream of expressing nowadays, because they were brave and truthful enough to say what they felt. "They stood out", "they tried to make a difference". They accepted that everyone feels differently. Great music always evolved because someone thought it worth risking to go to a new level, he saw beauty and didn't care about what others thought. He did that, without expecting anything, without anticipating, that's how rock came, how jazz and all recent improvisations came.

Is it possible in normal life, would our lives too turn out a success story, what if it backfires, who wants to be the laughing stock? Why do we find it so hard to simply trust something these days? Everyone wants to follow the beaten track. Though I am the one writing this hub, I don't know the answer myself but I think you know.

All I know is that, we could make so much more of the world if we only would listen, to ourselves and others. Try to reach out, try to be so much more, try to stand up for what you believe, try to be truthful to others and you will finally be at peace with yourself. I think this could solve many problems we have in ourselves if only we listened.

I think we have reached a place and time in this world, everything that happens newly is expected of, there is no passion, there is no fantasy, no gush of happiness ever to be found. Why make our world so mundane? The world is what you make of it. Why can't everyone be ourselves and sweeten and brighten all our days? Why don't we add versatility? The key is the heart to accept any outcome. I urge the world to listen today so that we shall have a whole new tomorrow.

Bless someone today with words of kindness

Do something nice for a friend

Sow seeds of encouragement into a stranger's heart

Tell your loved ones you greatly adore them

Make someone's day precious and beautiful

Give God praise for His greatness

Strengthen your companion with fruits of joy

Add faith to your neighbour's life

Bless someone today and remember - Jesus loves you.

Take your life to a higher level.

Stay focused and go forward

with your eyes on the prize.

When you run towards your destination

with passion in your heart

you will see your dreams come true.
