ENG.: Tour Around My Mind

I think it is funny when I mention, in a conversation or something like it, that I wished time could go faster. People’s first reaction, if they are my age or a little less (I turned 20 a week ago, congratulations to me!) is agreeing but, if they are older is telling me how much I should focus on what is ahead of me, but knowing how to wait and living a day at a time, hanging in there with the daily challenges building up bridges to this long awaited future.

It also seems kind of ironic trying to live in the present knowing there are great things coming, so many surprises and encounters. I am a big fan of ambition and I do not condemn those who doesn’t have it, but it is will power’s main element and what keeps it going forward – for those who know how to dose it – and admittedly, we all want something.

Expectations and dreams shaping up… Not so far from our sights… Tiredness already exists and tends to grow bigger, yet the feeling of going after it reigns. Who is able to comprehend? Who can stop someone like this?

Living the present because it is necessary, eyes on the prize.

        You see… Choices are finite…
        Either we could wish it to go slower, faster or turn around 😉

          In some moments we all wanted it to go slower. Why do you want it turn back around now?

            To go back to the days of innocence and carefree life…

            Life has become too complicated nowadays 😉

            Why do you want it to go faster?

    Living in the present is a good way to just enjoy the moments as they happen!!

    Firstly, a VERY happy (belated) birthday to my dear Brazilian friend! 🙂 May this year and all years ahead bring out the very best for you!

    About this blog, I love it. Especially the part: “It also seems kind of ironic trying to live in the present knowing there are great things coming, so many surprises and encounters.”
    Waiting for the future gets tough at times either when living in the present brings distress or when the future holds some exciting prizes! But time tends to run when you really want it to stay, and stay when you so want it to move. 😦
    Anyways, I had a ‘nice tour around your mind’ and thus put some of my own views too. 🙂

      Thank you so much! I was a little afraid of the new decade, but I think I started it pretty well. If you could choose one moment to go back to, and relive it, what would it be? And thanks again for always being kind to me! xo.

    In one short story that I’ve read, the main character compared his life to the very ‘hill’ he sees everyday when he goes to school. He said that sometimes the hill was covered with mist as though a parcel covered with wrappings… and of course, he was excited to see what’s inside the parcel. Later in the story, he experienced racial discrimination from the police — he got arrested by the police thinking that he’s one of those ‘brown people’ who indulge in drugs. He was abused physically and verbally… In the end, he said, ““When I got to the top of the road, I wouldn’t look out at the hills… I remember wondering if I would ever look at them again”.

    You said, “…seems kind of ironic trying to live in the present knowing there are great things coming, so many surprises and encounters.” Please don’t get me wrong. You just remind me of that boy in the story — he was so cheerful and even cheeky…and like you, he was looking forward to see what was in-stored for him.
