One question was asked to 50 people. People of all ages from different corners of the world brought up their biggest regrets. Some said they had none, which was the case because they said looking at mistakes as regrets will only swell you on the bad things in life. A few said not continuing education or knowing their grandparents were sick but never visited, but the most profound regret was along the lines of “not living life for joy”. A middle aged man whose regret was not living his life to the fullest and not taking a few more deep breaths to enjoy the moment reminded me of my biggest struggles—looking too far into things, being afraid to live in the moment and putting myself out there, in which I remain alone with a constant regret day after day. Deep within my heart, I know what I want. I’m a sucker for living in the moment, past is past we can never get it back, but the future is within our potential. I know for a fact that I enjoy making people happy which in turn makes me happy. I like creativity specifically with sports, filming, music, art, and journalism. I keep thinking. I keep saying. I keep dreaming, but I never keep trying to pursue. Such high probability in disappointing the people I love and myself: getting crushed by all the competition, not finding a job, or not making enough money. I keep giving myself excuses. My poor-self fights back with the reasons why the opposite would also be a disaster. Going into medical school gives me little to no time by the time I have a family, I would be wrapped up in working I see no way of escaping. But in return for meeting the right people who have similar interest, getting money for doing what I love, pursuing my heart with full desire and passion, experiencing life through art, I get lots and lots of cash. So now I’m asking myself which route will make me go to bed happy, which one is more important to me? My brother says "Be Realistic”, I say "You don’t know me well enough”.
Surround yourself with people who will motivate you to do what you love, not what makes them happy.

"It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it."
There is more than just heartache and loneliness, just look around. Happiness is everywhere, you just have to get over the fear and open your eyes.
