Silent Soliloquies


A few days ago, I was sitting in the office thinking about what I should do with my life. I was never the kind of person who made plans that I would take seriously. I mean, I have made plans but they just kind of slip away with time.


Aging finally sunk in. Now that I’ve realized that I am not getting any younger, I’ve finally decided to plot out my plans so I would have a clear direction in life. But wait, I am not talking about turning into a martyr who would change the world with my amazing abilities or conquering the world with my devious schemes; I am simply referring to the more adventurous side of life.


I have not been an adventurous person. I may come off strong and tough, but I have a few embarrassing fears, which may have kept me from enjoying my life fully. First off, I have a fear of heights… or a fear of falling. I have never tried the ever so famous zip-line. They all say it’s a lot of fun, but when I think about it, I would probably just cry and scream my head off. I also have this peculiar issue with clowns and mascots. I get this creepy feeling that the person behind the mask and costume would grab me or something. Lastly, I am claustrophobic. I have discovered this when I tried to hide myself in a wardrobe when I was a kid. And no, I wasn’t looking for Narnia.


Since going into the adventurous side of life means taking risks, I will face my fears. It won’t be easy but I know it would help me a lot. It would be like some personality development kind of thing for me.


Also, I have decided to go on little adventurous trips once every month. I don’t know if I could do this because it would have to cost me some and I am, most of the time, broke. Well, it’s worth a try. I can’t wait for my first adventure! I’m gonna be all Finn and Jake about it. Don’t judge.


All these “life plans” and “going into the more adventurous side of life” thoughts have also led me to focus on the talents that I have however little they are. I am planning to develop whatever talents I have for me to be able to grow as a person. God has given me these, so I better use them properly. It would be such a waste to not develop our talents, right?


I assume that most of us have our own “Bucket List”. Am I right or am I right? My Bucket List has a lot of stuff in it and I probably won’t be able to do it all. But having a list like this, I believe, would also help us to have a clearer view of our future. If we didn’t have plans or goals, however would we shape our future? I am happy that I know that now.


I never thought I would go YOLO with my life. Yes, I said it! Haha. Although, I don’t really believe that “we only live once”. We live EVERYDAY and it is up to us to make the most out of our days. Life is indeed short, and I would do the best I can to enjoy my life while I still can!
