On Facebook I shared a post that had a photo of a sign that was on top of a hill that read, “PLEASE RUN DOWN THE HILL SCREAMING.” If you travel to Aberdeen, Scotland you can see this sign along with some other creative ones.
There were two quotes with this photo post:
I am going to keep having fun every day I have left, because there is no other way of life. You just have to decide whether you are a Tigger or an Eeyore. ~Randy Pausch
In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. ~Gordon B. Hinckley
This is a repeat of what I said on Facebook, but I wanted to share it again here. There is a time in life when you need to run down the hill screaming or in my case roll down it like a log. (Yes, I did that not so long ago.) It is a release to get out of your head and to not worry about what people think about you. It is when life becomes a magnificent journey instead of a contest. People shouldn't judge you, they should be jealous of you for not trying it themselves.
I've been full of self-doubts, and I ask myself if I can truly write. I also wonder why I want to share my inner mind of imagination with the world when they may not like it. I remind myself to ignore the public opinions, do my best and forget the rest. So I'm reaching for the stars. I may only get to the clouds or the top of a tree, but at least I'm trying.
By nature I’m an Eeyore, but I strive to be a Tigger. It isn’t always easy, but when has anything worth the time ever been easy? Try it, you may see exactly what I mean.
