I Feel Spring Awakening

(photo from Tumblr)

12 February 1944.

"I think spring is inside me. I feel spring awakening. I feel it in my entire body and soul. I have to force myself to act normally. I'm in a state of utter confusion, don't know what to read, what to write, what to do. I only know that I'm longing for something."

- Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl.

When I read those words, it struck a chord within me. In that moment, it felt as if Anne had reached into my mind and put into words my own thoughts. Here I am in 2014, reading the words of a 14 year old girl that lived seventy years ago, yet we share the same train of thought.

And so that led me to think - we're all individuals, we all have our own experiences and stories, and we grow and mature in different ways. But in the end, we still have something in common. We're all human. We have dreams. We have ambitions. We all have something we long for.

I long to make a mark. I long to make my dreams - of working as a journalist, travelling the world, going on the most amazing adventures, being successful, finding true happiness - come true.

It’s up to us to turn our own dreams into realities.

Find your passion and focus on it. Focus on it like it’s the most important thing in the world. And let it take you on a journey.

You never know where you’ll end up.

Here, there or everywhere.
