Me and you, we’re the same. We’re nothing special.

It’s a bitter truth to swallow, but it’s a truth none-the-less.

You may have brown hair, and I may have blonde. You may have blue eyes, and I have brown. We have different backgrounds, different heritage and different lives but we don’t differ on the most important thing of all.

We have exactly 24 hours in a day.

But what’s different is how we spend them.

Do we binge watch Netflix? Or, do we work on your dreams?

Do we go out drinking for the night? Or, do we build the future we want?

Are we going to be the same as everyone else? Or, make something special out of nothing?

I guarantee that the world’s greatest people aren’t spending their time watching Netflix or playing games. They’re out there doing the things no-one else wants to with their 24 hours, and that’s why they’re who they are, and we are who we are.

I don’t know about you. But, I want to build a life I love, and that is only achievable by doing the things I’d rather put off.

Yes, I’d rather play games instead of writing. Yes, I’d rather binge on junk instead of running but where will either of these get me?

Mediocrity. And, I don’t want to be mediocre.

What Makes Us special

After all, when everything is said and done, and we’re laying on our deathbeds looking back on our lives will we be happy we watched that extra episode? I doubt.

Instead, if we built the future we wanted when we could, we’d have an entire life of happiness to look back on instead of just a few moments.

Life is special, and we can’t waste ours away.
