4th of August

If you think it’s worth the risk, go for it.

People always think it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s better to plan ahead than to be embarrassed. It’s better to keep your secrets than to tell. It’s better to go slow than rush things.

I beg to disagree. Though I want things to be perfect and to run smoothly, I always never forget that I am born in this world to live my life to the fullest and if there is not a little danger involved, where is the life in that?

I am the kind of daughter who sometimes go against my mom’s rules. I am the kind of friend who will tell you to go party instead of facing your books for hours. I am the kind of girlfriend who will tell you to come argue with me than spoil me with your patience. I am the kind of sister who will tell you to go have fun tonight than strictly forbid you to go outside.

I am the kind of person who would so willingly put myself into something dangerous, embarrassing, and risky.

I have my own definition of life and even though I have big dreams and is kind of a perfectionist, I also allow myself to have fun and to enjoy what I am doing. I take risks all the time, I have failures, I make mistakes, but I don’t regret doing it. Why?

Because it helped me get to know myself more.

It made me realize that life is too short to only prefer happiness all the time.

Because despite all the downs, failures, mistakes and regrets, here I am, slowly reaching my dreams. Here I am, surrounded with opportunities. Here I am, with lots of realizations in life. Here I am, loving myself more.

Because I have always believed that the things you are scared of doing are usually the most worth it.

And to me, my life is.
