Opinions and all that jazz.

People’s opinions, no matter how old we grow, always seem to matter to us, no?

So much so, that so many of us tend to let go of ideas, ambitions and dreams – simply because they seem a tad too unconventional for the society we live in.
Or sometimes because, we’re scared we’ll be mocked at, if we fail. We are scared we might lose in our attempts and will be looked down upon. We are scared we wouldn’t be given the push, the love, and the light we seek.

But that’s the whole point lost, ain’t it?

Because, you can’t just kill something that keeps you kicking and alive, for someone else. You can’t forgo your passion because a section of people you live with, don’t think much about it.

Opinions be damned, listen to your heart.

And choose to pursue what YOU think, is your calling, even if people think it is a waste of time. Even if people advise you against it. Even if people tell you that you wouldn’t make any money out of it.

Because, you don’t have to fit in. Into anybody’s shoes or standards or opinions.

Be bizarre. Weird. Mad. Eccentric.
Be everything that your heart propels you to be. Be everything that you’re made of.
Be everything that breathes life into your existence.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
