Damn You Justin Bieber!

Humans love to say they’ll never do things.

Until one day, before we know it, we’re doing it. The arbitrary boundary we set for ourselves fades away like a fart in the wind. And our grand intentions of abstinence turn out to be grand delusions of obstinance.

Moments like these aren’t just important — they’re inevitable. They teach us that life is a subjective experience. They show us that absolutes are hard to come by. And they remind us that, despite our best efforts to stand by our convictions and stay consistent with what we thought was true, life can prove us wrong at the drop of a hat.

A hat we never thought we’d wear. A hat we used to think looked ridiculous on us. A hat we spend our whole life running from and speaking out against.

But now that we’ve tried it on, we realize that the hat isn’t really that bad. In fact, it’s kind of flattering.

Who knew?

Definitely not us.

Except maybe Bieber.

When Dreams Shrivel into Dead Memories

Dreaming is the easy part.

The human imagination has no trouble with that.

What kills us is when
we demand excessive permission to make our dreams a reality.

Because we wouldn’t dare follow our heart’s desire until we
were ready, until the time was right, until we had enough money, until all the
planets were aligned and until the risk of failure was minimized.

No, that would just be plain stupid.

So we wait. And wait. And wait.

And eventually, our dreams shrivel into dead memories. And we
convince ourselves that we never really wanted them in the first place, so we don’t
feel as bad.

But maybe we meet somebody who isn’t addicted to permission.
Somebody possessed by a relentless inner voice. Somebody whose dreams are
actually coming true, right now, before their eyes, in real time, because of
the daily actions they choose to take.

And in that moment, we have a choice.

We can sigh, smile, pat them on the back, say good-for-you
and sheepishly mutter how we wish we could follow our dreams too.

Or.

We can channel their fire to elevate our hope, leverage
their energy to disrupt our inertia and open ourselves to the invitation to
take the plunge.

LET ME ASK YA THIS…

Whose dreams are you using to inspire yours?
