how far will you go?


we gotta face the fact that life doesn’t always turns out like how you want it to be, that life isn’t just like a fairy tale like how you watch on TV. life is short, like really. you may not know what happen to you the very next second. people say you should enjoy life everyday like it is the last day you are here on Earth.

but how many of us really do what we really wanted, things that will make us happy by practicing “LIFE IS SHORT”? how far will you go to chase after what you really want? how far will you go to get hold of your happiness in your hand?

people say “expect the unexpected”. sometimes it really does happen and sometimes, life even requires you to choose between yourself and your family. and when that comes, will you choose a path that will make yourself happy as it is you that will go on with what you choose for the rest of your life, or will you pick a path that will please everyone else in your family? not everyone is there to support you at times, even your own family members.

i had met a lady who told me “i will support my children no matter what decision they make, as they are the one who are going to live their lives. not me. because when i die, they are gonna regret living their lives as they aren’t living their lives, they are living mine.” and i was really surprise because i didn’t expect her to be the type of person that is open minded. what she said changes my perspective of seeing certain things.

so what say you? will you choose to do something that you like, or to do something that would please others?

Pleasing others may be the better option for most people as the pressure from surrounding people as well as the society can be a tad overwhelming at times, and a person has to be damn strong to handle that IMO to chase their dream. Maybe I'm just pessimistic but I'll do something that I like, simply because I think there's no end to pleasing others. When you do A some people will think B is better, and C, and D and so on. But of course, opinion is opinion. It's what you really think that stands true to yourself by the end of it all~ ;)Obvious long is obvious. =_=||

    Lana Banana : hey, thanks for visiting my blog πŸ™‚ a lot of interesting quotes in your blog. but anyway, i think it would be nice if we could do both, a decision that would make both parties happy. Hanin : hey. you have a point there. i feel that way too. doing things that will make us happy. but there's a little twinge of fear in me that is afraid to pursue what i really wanted, for me. whether or not it is worth to fight for. whether or not it is the right thing to do.
