Beyond The Sky

04:10:00


They say sky is the limit, but the last few days felt like life was bringing me even beyond it. Quite literally as well I suppose, as only a few days ago I was up in the clear blue skies flying from Germany to the UK for a very very special day. On Friday I officially graduated university. A moment I have only been dreaming about while I was in high school and living back in Lithuania several years ago. A dream that felt so unrealistic and yet something I desired with all my heart. Not even in the wildest dreams did I think that all of it could be reality in the near future and that I will prove myself and others who did not believe that anything is possible in this world, so long as you put all your heart into it. Of course there were moments when I was so fed up, faced hardships and thought why am I even wasting my time on this, but I wouldn’t do it any other way if I could go back in time. It was meant to be the way it was. I was meant to go through the experiences I did, I was meant to meet people I have met, and I was meant to be where I am right now - in the crossroad of life, debating what’s next, debating if I should go with the flow or live every day like it’s my last. I still haven’t made up my mind but there’s no rush. No compass or a map will help me find the right direction, my heart is the only thing that I will follow from here on now.

I may not come across as an incredibly stubborn person at the beginning but I actually am. If you say no, I will try to convince you to say a yes. If you say it’s impossible I will try until I prove you wrong. Someone back from high school told me there’s no way in the world I could go abroad or study Film and TV, because I am *this and that* (put in some degrading words), and because of people like that particular person I said I will do it. I mean of course that was not the main reason why, but it motivated me to show that you are the only person in charge of your life and not someone who is bringing others down instead of encouraging those around. Life is too short to live by other people’s definitions of who you are or what you are capable of. You are capable of ANYTHING you want, even if your mind or others tell you otherwise. Even if it takes years or decades. It doesn’t matter what it is, just go for it because if you don’t, life seriously loses meaning. If you don’t do it, those will be the things you will regret on your dying bed. You’ll regret not loving enough, not being daring enough, but most importantly not living the life you truly deserve. I didn’t mean to turn this post into a sad thought-provoking rant, it was a joyous moment of my life overall, but it’s just that the last couple of days have been extremely emotional and I really realised what’s the most important in life - fighting for the moments that make you feel grateful to be alive and fill your heart with happiness. That’s what life is all about.
