A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Strike the Match" by G.

We live. And as we live, we think and feel. I know that we humans have many wants. Potentials that have yet to be reached. Sadly, many of us don't go to that higher level. We kid ourselves into being content with who we are now, even though we know we can be so much more. Well... you can change all that, right now. By striking the match.

Something that I stress often is that you only know for sure that you are living this one life, right now. There is no better time to reach for the stars than the present. Your goals are waiting. Your happiness and content are waiting. But Life waits for no one. I assume that since you are reading this, you have a little spare time on your hands. If you think you've done everything you wanted to do in life, give yourself a pat on the back. But for the multitudes of others like us who have yet to accomplish everything they want; listen up. The time is now for you to strike the match and change what you want to change. It's a simple choice; really it is. You are either content, or you aren't. But nothing is going to happen unless you light that fire in your own heart. A fire of motivation. And of hunger. Hunger for what you want.
