Choosing a different path in your life path is scary , changes terrify us and most of the time this causes our dreams to remain in the drawer, full of dust. As Pablo Neruda used to say:
dies slowly he who doesn’t risk certainty for uncertainty
I believe we should live our life thinking that yes nothing comes easy, but yet not is impossible. Taking a different direction and leaving our habits can be painful at the beginning (and I can assure that since I have faced many changes in my life) but it also represents a beautiful and unique opportunity to grow as an individual and to better understand yourself.
Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite poems. It summarizes everything I am trying to deliver with this article. I have had a hard copy printed out and glued on my bathroom mirror for a long long time so that everyday i can remind myself how amazing life is and how lucky i am to be alive. I like it so much that I tattooed part of it on the back of my shoulder.
Happy reading dear followers, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
