We Live By The Moon

“Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”
Paul Brandt

Growing up, we learn and blindly follow all the rules and norms that our society or those around us sets.
“You can’t do that.”
“You can’t say that.”
“You’re not supposed to be with them.”
“You have to do this.”
“You have to look like this.”
“You have to act like this.”
It’s just ridiculous. Who cares if you’re a boy who likes the color pink and Barbie dolls, a girl who likes blue and racecars? Who cares if you want to be a firefighter, a lawyer, or a singer? It’s your life; it’s your decision. Don’t choose something just because you think it’s the acceptable choice, choose whatever it is that every fiber of your being yearns for and desires for. Don’t limit yourself with the restrictions other people have established only because they didn't achieve the goal themselves. Be who you are, be who you dream to be. And if you fall and things don’t work out the way you had imagined, get back up and keep moving. Learn from it, compromise and improvise, navigate around, and overcome whatever obstacle comes your way so long as you get to the goal you have made for yourself. Like Brandt had said, the sky’s not the limit since footprints have been left on the moon; you never know, maybe you will be the one to leave footprints on another planet.

Love,
Allyssa
