Strong Opinions Loosely Held

Show of hands, how many been taking notes? /Good, Leave everything on the table now/ On the real/This is your generation/Show, show your pain – Kendrick Lamar (Chapter Ten)

Every day, I question myself and my motives.

Why am I doing what I’m doing now?

Recently, I learned that our dreams, ambitions and motivations change just like the seasons. We hold on to some strongly, while we outgrow some others.

You don’t outgrow a dream because it has been achieved.

And outgrowing a dream doesn’t mean that dream was impossible to accomplish. Not achieving a dream isn’t a reason either.

We are just human beings, and change is the overall guiding light at our core.

At a point in time, some things do not make sense anymore, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

While like the proverbial sinking ship, you have to throw some dreams overboard so they don’t cause you to drown.

Some are for a while, and so one day, you have to walk out on water like Peter to retrieve them.

Whereas some others forever. Never to see the light of day.

Some dreams you hold on to strongly, while some others like opinions loosely.
