Life is about finding what makes you feel alive and using that to try and change the world for the better. Life’s not all about being a doctor, engineer, lawyer or whatnot. There is more to life than what we force ourselves to believe. Life is about finding your passion and making a difference in the world. That being said, once we find our passion, we must never let it go of it no matter the challenges we may face trying to achieve those goals. We must go after that dream with everything we have until that dream becomes reality.

Most people assume that just because you made a mistake that it’s over and that it’s time to throw in the towel. That is nowhere remotely close to the truth. A skilled sailor is shaped by countless challenges that they overcame and emerged from a stronger and greater version of themselves. When people come across challenges and choose to be persistent and persevere in the face of hardship, this shows their determination in accomplishing the dream they have.
Once you decide that something is your passion, keep going and never give up! At the end of the day, no matter how many challenges you face, your passion will ultimately surpass any hardship no matter how big. One day you can use your story to inspire others to accomplish dreams of their own and to be inspired to live their best life. That my friends is the meaning of life in a nutshell! As always, my offer still stands for anyone to reach out to me if they need someone to talk to about anything they are currently going through.
