“What you do in life chooses you. You can choose not to do it. You can choose to try to do something safer. Your vocation chooses you.” ~ Jim Carrey
The ability to truly express yourself, be it through art, dance, song, word, etc. is to find true freedom. Many of us are so concerned about what others think that we forget to connect with our creative side. We let the world take over. We forget to be ourselves.
But the reality is that we are not here to meet other people’s expectations, and we are not here to conform. You will be your best self if you follow your passions, without any attachment to the result. If you’re not living up to someones expectations, then that’s their problems, not yours.
By embracing your passions, you are taking care of yourself. And it is only when you are taken care of that you can make your best contribution to the world. Not the other way around. It is only then that you will be truly happy.
So don’t forget to play and to embrace what you truly enjoy. This is the path to happiness. This is the path to freedom.
“Happiness is the highest form of health.” ~ Dalai Lama
