Letter: Everybody dies but not everybody lives


Madam – Everybody dies but not everybody lives.

It is not death most people are afraid of, it is getting to the end of life, only to realise that you never truly lived. The risks they never took, the dreams they didn’t pursue. I ask you would your last words be: if only I had! Why do you exist?

Life is not meant to simply work, wait for the weekend and pay rent. I don’t know much but I know this, every person on this earth has a gift. People don’t choose dreams, dreams choose them. So the question I’m getting to, is Do you have the courage to grab the dream that picked you?

That befits you and grips you, or will you let it get away and slip through? Every person was built to live out the dream they have inside. Most of us are afraid of the thief that comes in the night to steal all of our things. But there is a thief in your mind who is after your dreams. His name is doubt!

Keep him away from the kids because he is wanted for murder. For he has killed more dreams than failure ever did. He wears many disguises and like a virus will leave you blinded, divided

and turn you into a “kinda”. Will you struggle? Yeah … yeah you will struggle, no way around it. You will fall many times, but who’s counting? Just remember, there’s no such thing as a smooth mountain.

If you want to make it to the top then, there are sharp ridges that must be stepped over. Struggle and criticisms are prerequisites for greatness. That is the law of this universe and no one

escapes it. Because pain is life, but you can choose what type. Either the pain on the road to success or the pain of being haunted with regret. We have been given a gift that we call life. So don’t blow it. So own it now.

Sometimes you got to leap, and grow your wings on the way down. You cannot go back and make a brand new beginning. But you can start now and make a brand new ending.
