It is both daunting and liberating to think that the world does not owe us anything, yet it lies generously at our feet. We hold the possibilities, the choices and the potential, as long as we’re open to taking them and exploring them. We will discover that everything worth having never comes easily, but it is our responsibility to inspire ourselves and to work hard for what we want. We will find ourselves in unexpected, uncomfortable or unappealing situations, but it is our responsibility to adapt to them or change them. We will be thrown boulders and stopped at barriers, but it is our responsibility to transcend the limitations and boundaries and to reach heights we didn’t think we could. Ultimately, we need to realise that the beauty of life stems from that very responsibility. We can paint our life in any colour and any style we desire.
