Here I am, standing at the city center, beside the so-called “Horse monument”. Admiring the beautiful night sky portrait, full of tiny little stars desperately calling for help. But why help? Because they stand alone in the universe, probably without any population on them. Cut out, in the middle of nowhere and 5 million light years away from my curious eyes stands a star named Hope, smiling and talking to her friends, Desire, Will, Power and Love…
Everything is so relative!
A friend texts me. He’s gonna be late for our appointment. “Great. Just more waiting”, I thought. Having in mind that only a couple of us showed up on time, I felt kinda incomplete. We all did. You know that feeling when you’ve got something in mind and you want everything to be just as you planned, but not all things depend on you… [Well, stop overthinking. You can’t control everything, just let it be.] I looked at all those people around me, every single one of them with a smile on their face. Happiness is there, you just have to look for it. Start the pursuit in yourself. It’s most likely you won’t have to search any further. Fortune is in the little things. 🙂
When you find it and see that everything is much better than you thought, you suddenly realize that it’s only you and the starry night. Darkness. [http://goo.gl/GZOIKo] You’ve gone to far to go back to reality now. Luka, your dreamer side has won, again. The time stopped, you are levitating in space, enjoying these incredible moments in life that make what you’ve been through totally worth it. But you still remember that everything can change in slip of a second. Nevertheless, you’re making a summation of your life, everything that happened in it so far, deciding who you wanna be. Everything seems quite normal, because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time terrified. The truth is you don’t know what you feel, except you know what kind of man you wanna be. It’s as if you’ve reached the unreachable and you’re not ready for it. [http://goo.gl/uyyGI]
Sweet dreams are made of tears.
This is the time when a man changes into a man he is gonna be the rest of his life. Just be careful who you change into.
There is nothing you miss in life, not even a chance to correct some awful mistakes you regret for. Trust me, those mistakes take us down the road and makes us who we are. And if anyone is destined for greatness, it’s you. You owe the world your gifts, you just have to figure out how to use them. [Be careful, they’re like a poison. They can take us over. Before you know it, it can turn you into something ugly.] Wherever they take you, be ready for a battle, cuz it won’t be easy. There is no easy way out.
You know, when you were younger, your parents thought: “This kid’s gonna be the best kid in the world. This kid’s gonna be somebody better than anybody I ever knew.” And you grew up good and wonderful. It was great to your parents just watchin’ you, every day was like a privilege to them. Then the time came for you to be your own man and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good. And when things got hard, you started lookin’ for something to blame, like a big shadow. [I know things have been difficult lately, and I’m sorry about that.]
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and no matter how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently. If you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out there and get what you’re worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that! You’re not just any person picked from the streets, you are one of a kind. Show the world what you’ve got! Don’t whine “why me”. Say “try me”. Until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life. Strong focus on what you want.
Do you know what is the greatest gift anyone can receive in his lifetime? The greatest gift we can receive is to have the chance, just once in our lives, to make a difference. Do you understand how many times you made a difference? Enough for a hundred lifetimes. But not everyone is meant to make a difference.
Whatever life holds in store for you, never forget these words: “With great power comes great responsibility.” [Just because you can do something, doesn’t give you the right to.] This is your gift, your curse.
Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.
Courageous, self-sacrificing people. Setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they’ll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams…
Do you know what life is? What it REALLY is? It is the inevitability of hard times, which we survive only because of the moments of joy in between. This very moment is that joy. A beautiful moment a couple of days ago was that joy. Now comes the inevitable. And we will deal with it, and get to the other side, where more moments of joy are waiting for us…
Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale… if somebody told you I was just your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world… somebody lied.
Wake up now, Luka. That was enough. 😀
“Luka, why are you so silent all the time? That’s completely unlike you.”, a friend asked me. “Well, I don’t know. I was wandering deep in my thoughts”, I replied. [When I’m silent, I have a thunder hidden inside. http://goo.gl/KTM4XG When words mean nothing I go la la la xD] “Look, there they are!”, he noticed. “Yeah, they’re finally here”, I confirmed his statement. “I feel like a whole year has passed.” “Whoah, bro, it was only 10 minutes. Chill out a lil’!”, he told me. “Wow, that was pretty fast…”, I thought. “Let the evening begin.” [I’ve got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night :D]
