Be the Exception
If you choose to be the exception, you may encounter disappointment. You may also unearth opportunity and become exceptional.
What you do with every single day is key. Are you unlocking the path for tomorrow or hindering your way? Watch the sun rise. Greet a stranger with good morning and a smile. Open the door for a family member. Laugh. Love. Breathe. Find a trail outdoors and walk to the sea. Never, never stop seeking your dreams. Do you know what you want? Write it down. Put it in your face. Make out a list of creeks and forests and lands you haven't seen. What do you want to be? More compassionate? Stronger? More intelligent in one particular area? Study. Read. Learn. Build skills. Live.
No matter what you have endured, no matter what circumstances seem to surround you, you are lucky. You are alive. You have the chance to complain and blame or you can take one step toward a happy day, a happy dream. Take that step. What will it be? Smile at a stranger today. Smile at me. Whatever it is, wake with a passion because today, you can begin your dream.
