I’ve Only Just Begun

“I do not choose to be a common (wo)man. It is my right to be uncommon — if I can. I seek opportunity — not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say, this I have done.” ~ Dean Alfange

Nothing need hold you back in life
Not even the ravages of your own mind.
I want it all.
So I continue to let my dreams grow daily.
If only you could see inside my mind for just a moment
And peek at all that I am currently manifesting.
You see, my life is not half way over as some may think
On the contrary
It is only just beginning!!

And one day, with whitened hair, desires failing, strength ebbing out of me, with the sun going down and with only the serenity and the calm warning of the evening star left to me, I will drink to Life, to all it has been, to what it was and to what it will still be. Hurrah!

Make sure you make it count.

~ Here is to relentlessly pursing what you truly desire no matter where in life you are. Happy ChooseDay everyone!
