Who doesn’t want to make a difference in the world? Who wants to just sit on there butts from 8-5 until they retire and then die? That sounds like a boring life to me. I want to socialize. I want to meet new people. I want to bring hope to those that feel hopeless. I felt hopeless for like the longest time when I was younger and music helped me so much, so I wanted to be a musician. So far, it has not worked out, but I am not too worried about it.
I want to do what God wants me to do. There are people in my life that have tried to give me advice, and I have taken it with a grain of salt. They say music or photography is something you do on the side. You do not have a real career with that. Well, I guess the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Who, Creed, Hoobastank, Linkin Park, and many others have no real career. I would also be willing to bet that Alberto Oviedo, the Bebbs, Ashley Lebedev, Jeremy Cowart, Scott Kelby, Trey Ratcliff, and Joey Lawrence would laugh at this saying.
Of course, the previously mentioned people/bands have a special talent that the majority of the world does not have. That is why they made it, but even they were told at one time in their life that they couldn’t make it big, right? I would put 5 dollars on that.
Back to what my friends said. I have the other end of the spectrum which are the friends that say go for your dreams. Well, you know people have lived in this world without going for their “dreams”. I mean if everyone had their “dream” I think Hollywood would be full of crappy actors. Wait, it already is. The music industry would have crappy music. Ugh, same there. The photography business would be full of terrible photographers. No, just because your Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Jemima have a fancy camera doesn’t make them good. I guess everyone is already going for their dreams.
I just want to make a difference in the world, just like every young person I know. It starts out with making all the difference in one person’s world. Again, I want to bring hope where hope is gone. Correction, I want to bring God’s love where hope is gone. Our generation needs a rebirth of Democracy and Freedom. We need to take a stand. Who is with me?
