Are you where you wanna be...?

Hello friends,

So let me begin with...I realise it's 3.35 in the wee early hours of the morning...but I just had to get this off my to speak! 

Here goes...please bare with thoughts...

I see so many people with such potential in what they could be...yet so rarely do they fully reach their dreams & goals! 
It almost seems as if they themselves...are locked, barricaded- their souls tangled in the shackles of mediocrity, realism, (which okay if you wanna live your life in a boat!) ;) waiting for someone to release them from their prison cell of loneliness, emptiness- infecting the very core of  who they are, almost crushing them to the ground, till they can no longer move, to weak to stand, to weak to eat, to weak to even think. 

Our minds are plagued with thoughts of not just loneliness, but a whirlwind of whispers & doubts, saying... "I'll never amount to anything! So what's the point??!!' 
It so saddens me to think...that some...if not most of us think this way! 

We live in a world where fame, money, status seem to be the IN THING of today's times! Like there are ruling & influencing our every move, how we think, how we listen, how we even behave towards others!  

And who could forget brains & beauty making the image complete! 
Not that I am in anyway putting these people down- those that have these qualities! :D 
It's just that...not 'every size' fits all...or maybe it's just me...? 
Are we missing something...maybe the point of our own existence..? 
But then again what do I know right?? :)

I sincerly think we need to ask ourselves the question...why do we feel this way? 
Who is making us feel this way...?

Why does my heart feel weighed down?, pushed around? kicked down...? 
Just because I do not fit the mould...the 'status quo'...?   

Anyway...just wanted to leave you with these thoughts for today...maybe you might even ponder these in the midnight hour when most are already sound asleep...? Who knows...? But I hope you find an answer on your quest that is your journey... :)

As I was thinking about these things... in the early hours of the morning. 
I came across this quote by Henry David Thoreau...who I think...sums up what I'm trying to say...

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this." ~ Henry David Thoreau

Anyway just a thought that is all... ;)

Until I write/blog again...

Your faithfully...Shine xx
