My desire to not be dust in this life has been on my mind for a few years now. It’s all I can think about and has sparked the creative side of me. I never thought I had an ounce of creativity within myself, but here I am writing my thoughts and sharing them. I realized that life has so much to offer only if I go out and try to seek what it’s offering. The thought of being here and after I die there is nothing of substance left behind for my family, friends, or strangers to remember me by is scary. A legacy is what I want to leave behind. I want people to have memories of me in a positive way and not just the fact that I existed. Just existing is a waste of life and as far as I know, there aren’t any second chances on living life. Fuck a safe life. Safety and comfort has become a fear of mine, along with routine. That shit is boring and really has no value. Life is already a roller coaster, but instead of putting your hands up and enjoying the ride, most close their eyes and put their heads between their legs. I couldn’t continue to live life in fear and not try and discover a greater version of myself. Oh yes, we all have a better version of ourselves and you must want to discover that version. I thought a nice job that would eventually pay me six figures, being a “GOOD” father, and having a good time on weekends and holidays was a great life. That sounds great, but it was not for me. I want more than six figures, I want to be my kids HERO, and I want everyday to be a holiday or a day of the weekend. Society has made degrees and job titles superior to the creative mind, but I am glad to say that is changing slowly but surely. The people that don’t look for more out of life or strive to leave a legacy are in fear. I rather live like a man than die like a coward. Not living to my full capabilities would be me living as a coward. Aren’t you tired of asking permission? We all become adults but have more limits than we did as children. It’s time that you bet on yourself and do MORE in this life. No one is going to give it to you. Remove the fear and limits and go after it PLEASE!! I want to see and hear about more people living their best lives and empowering others to do the exact same. Don’t get swept up and thrown in the trash like dust or dirt.
