Underdogs

Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. But now I find that I can’t stop wanting.

I want to fly somewhere in first class. I want to travel to Europe on a business trip. I want to get invited to the White House. I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person that I can be.

I want to define myself instead of having others define me. I want to win, and have people be happy for me, I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up to be generous and big hearted, the way that people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life.

It’s not that I think I’m going to get all of these things, I just want the possibility of getting them. The possibility that things are going to change.

I can't wait.

I love this post. and I'm extremely happy that you're not like before anymore, it's great to want more out of life. who knows? life is short, here today, gone tomorrow.

We should all want more out of life, even if we fail trying, at least we tried. If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end!

I don't know what I want, but I can't stop wanting! I'm willing to work for it. Blodd, sweat, and tears! The process is just as important as the result.

Good luck! cheers! :)

wow wise words, I probably haven't even seen a quarter of the endless life out there as you have, yet you still strive to seek more and more, adventure, travel, and experience. I am really jealous of that mindset. If only I wasn't so bound down by my guilty conscience and stableness I'd want to do that too.
