For some reason, everywhere I turn lately, there have been people discussing the subject of what they want out of life. I cannot deny that this is an important thing to know and focus on. Without goals in life, we are aimlessly wandering and we would never have made it where we are in this world. Please do not take anything I am about to say to mean that I don’t value goals, purpose, and going after what we want.
I see everybody talking about what they want out of life and where they’re going, but I see people who focus so strongly on these goals, they’re completely unadaptable, and that legitimately scares me. As cliché as this sounds, the world is always changing and people are always changing. It’s a touching story when we hear about those people who had a dream from when they were a child and grow up to fulfill it, but what about those people who have a dream when they’re a child, spend their whole life chasing after it, and forget to live the rest of their life?
As I’m writing this, all I can think of is a great line by the one and only Albus Dumbledore, so I shall leave you with that as a closing.
It does not do to dwell on dreams, and forget to live.
