It seems these days you notice more people standing by and watching and less people doing. People are scared to take the chance of being embarrassed, or getting hurt. But in order to live life to the fullest we have to get out of our shell and take chances. Everyday. Don't be so focused on what others will think. Live your life for you.
Can you look at a heart drawn in the sand on a beach and say "The waves have made this beautiful drawing"? Of course not. Someone took something as simple as their finger and used it to make something beautiful. But without their effort you wouldn't have seen the marvelous beauty of something so simple. Apply that to your life. Look at the things you want and don't just wait for them to happen. Make them happen.
