The first time I heard that word, it was just another addition to my vocabulary.
As a child, I was fascinated with encountering new words and figuring out what they meant, so I’d ravenously go through every book I had to see what words I could meet that I had never known of before.
Later on though, I realized they had a lot of gravity.
Every famous person seemed to have them and stressed upon their importance. Life without goals is absolutely pointless – they were experts in different fields and yet, they all seemed to agree on this one thing.
And then there’s this somewhat frightening view of the world.
I did get a few goals in the journey from adolescence to youth, but I still wonder if it truly is so worthless to live life just living in the moment.
Surely there must be truly successful people who did that?
If life was a jigsaw puzzle, we’d all have different ways of solving it, wouldn’t we?
There are some who would see the whole picture first, and then work to rebuilding that from the pieces they have in their hands.
Then there are others who would rather just put the pieces together, drawing from the different shapes around them, and just let the big picture unfold on its own.
And so many more ways to do it, I wouldn’t know.
Because I belong to the second category, you see.
Then again, I’m just a young girl still figuring out things, still learning so maybe you should listen to someone better experienced. In that light, I may just be right.
Live by what you feel is right, my dear friends.
Live the moment, work for what you love, and learn.
As much as you can.
And love, forever.
