When you look around and take time to observe what many fellow young people are doing to benefit the world around them, I hope you picture yourself as well in such a position of great influence…
Some of us won’t dare imagine that we are possibly as brilliant as some others; some of us are unaware that the one purpose all of us on earth share is sharing what is deep within us with the world around us. Some of us don’t even care if we have anything to offer or not; for all we care, its people supposed to come searching from us and not us searching for them… the typical “mongalist” as I like to call them. So, I’m here to inform or remind you first of all; that nobody said and neither is it written anywhere that there’s a place others can be that you can’t! Secondly, that we will search for ourselves wherever we want to and find the truth in this; ‘sincerely living for our world is where we find the most satisfaction’. And finally, that if you don’t care at all for starters, please don’t wait only to wish you had when you still could.
We can never really know how much we mean to our world unless we start searching now and by searching I mean begin using our youthful physical, mental, and even emotional energy to exploit our inner resources and be able to give back in the means we can. Many public icons usually date their stories back to their youth days, so in this we ought to be challenged to recognize the incredible importance of the power of our youth to either destroy or build theirs and the lives of others in particularly amazing ways.
Yes, I know this has become “the song” of anyone who is seeking support or attention of the youth. But I’m more than glad to join the club of motivational chatter. Only this time my desire isn’t to create in your mind a fantasy world where everything prospers as long as you’re determined which is neither entirely false nor entirely true. Some things may fail because they are meant to be our life lessons which enable us to grow, such things, only God knows about best, and one day we’ll have the chance to ask him why for which I believe he’ll have a convincing answer… just make sure you get there. It is doing what I have the opportunity to, to speak to you about not taking yourself for granted and in addition to that, challenge you to use it to benefit somebody other than the usual “YOU”, and see that it won’t be your pride for years to come.
By the way, this message is not just for those between the legal youth group, but for every one of you who considers themselves youthful in mind or body or ideas, or anything. I’ve always believed aging is simply a mindset, so, elders it’s for you too! I laughed when I once heard my father say “I’m growing older but I still feel like a 19 year old man!” but I’ve always loved the sense the statement carried!
So, regardless of your age, I’ll say to you something our Director of Studies liked to tell us; the sky is no longer the limit! People have crossed it and reached the moon! And there’s no box, simply think and you will make that difference!
