Do it, anyway.

It's May and I am happy.

I have a good life that's why, and thank god I have one. When I look back to where I wanted to be 5 years ago and where I am right now, I can say that I am so blessed. I moved to Europe to do what I have been wanting to do and now I speak German, have a wonderful man that supports me, and go to a a college with such lovely people around. When I read the previous sentences over and over again, it sounds like a dream come true for me. And it is. This is exactly how I want to live my life. While it is not so fancy as it sounds, I am proud of what I achieved so far. Everybody asked me where I get the courage from, to leave my hometown in such a young year, and you know what, only you know where it is. It's inside of us, every each of us, the whole time.

I just want you guys to know that whatever it is that you've wanted your whole life, you should really go for it. You might not doing it yet because you are afraid. I get it. But be afraid; it's normal. And do it anyway. Because one thing you should now: you cannot let the fear inside of you make you stuck at where you are right now. Who are we without a 'lil scare? Everybody got scared. And me, I just enjoy it. It's a part of the whole process that you should experience. And I need to see myself, how far I'll go, because it's a part of growing, and I told myself if I am not doing it, I will never gonna do it. When I have to give a lecture about a medicine theme at the college two years ago, it was probably the challenge of my life. I am the only person in my class who is not German, and I should give a speech in German? That's insane. But now when I think about what I did so far: giving already about 10 speeches the last two years at school and got A's. The thing is, I love doing speeches, and whatever language it is, I am just gonna do it anyway. It's not about me trying to brag or anything over here. It's just one of stories that I want to share that you, too, can do whatever it is that you love, right now, even if you think you do not have the slightest chance at all. Because when you do something with love and passion, you know you are in the right way.

So, the bucket list that you made back then, you should grab it and do the whole thing. Because nobody's gonna do it for you. Live the life you want. Only you can fulfill it. Everybody else is too busy, you know. You, have the chance to do it, today.

until then.
