A Life of the Excitable Popcorn

The other night, I asked my boyfriend to describe me. What can I be boxed in as? His reply made me smile. He said, “You are the most excitable of all the people I know, the happiest of them all. If you were a popcorn, you would be the little one that wouldn’t stop jumping” I guess the reason behind this is that I have always seen the world not as it is but as it should be. To see the abundance of opportunities this world presents us with. However, this means nothing when I don’t turn that positive energy into anything. I should never let these possibilities be wasted on a daydream.

Working in a client focused industry, I have noticed an array of people with different thoughts and ideas. A few of them stood out to me. These select few have really stopped letting life just pass them by, not letting it just run its course and instead they have really grasp life by the belt and they are running their own show. With no regrets, they have created reality out of their daydreams. That’s the type of person I would like to be.

In this video, I went snorkeling for the first time. It was the deepest part of the ocean I have ever been to. Although I have this fear of the open water and all the creatures lurking below, I have also fantasised about the beautiful world that could be found out there. I won’t let life  and fear cripple me. I won’t let opportunities pass me by. Not anymore. I want to make a difference in my life. I don’t know how yet but at the end of the day I want to live my life, not just survive it.
