Conversations with your soul

The hardest thing in life, I think, is to find yourself...

...to really question what it is that you want out of life

...and even harder it is to look the answers from your soul in the eye and face the realities that make you YOU.

It is so easy to accept your friends as they are, to remain loyal to them, to defend their causes, to make excuses for them, to not judge them for who they are...

...but it's even harder to look at your own naked soul in the mirror and to accept yourself as you are, to remain loyal to who you are, to defend yourself against the world and remain true to the soul within you.

It is so easy to chase a dream once you see it in the hazy clouds over the horizon...

...but so much harder to extract that hidden dream you barely knew existed from the innermost depths of your soul, to give it life and paint it with the colors of hope.

It's easy to sit and dream and imagine what it would feel like to hold that seemingly impossible dream in your hands...

...but harder still to dream with your eyes wide open to the real world you live in and then dare to LIVE the dream instead of just dreaming it.

It's easy to sit and wish that life would change and complain about how it's never quite how you want it to be...

...but if for one moment life asked you back what it is that you wanted, how easy would it be for you to answer and know what to ask for?

The hardest thing, I think, is to have conversations with your soul.
