Unleashing The Forgotten Artist Within:Rediscovering The Creative Dreams Of Childhood

Everyone's teenage dream, at some point, is to become a cricketer, artist, musician. The longing to pursue that passion, that burning desire to excel in a field that ignites our souls, is something we all experience. But along the way, something happens.Life takes over. We get caught up in the never-ending demands of work, of responsibilities, of the daily grind. And slowly, ever so gradually, we let those dreams slip away.

It's as if we become prisoners to our own success. We allow ourselves to be consumed by the world's expectations, by the pressures of society. We sacrifice our own happiness, our own fulfillment, in the pursuit of external validation. We trade in the brush strokes for spreadsheets, the melodies for conference calls, and the pitch for office politics.

But why? Why do we forsake the very things that once brought us joy, that fueled our imagination and filled our hearts with purpose? It is a tragedy, a heart-wrenching tale of loss. We become numb, living in a state of perpetual repetition, going through the motions day in and day out. Our lives
become a monotonous melody, devoid of passion,devoid of joy.

In the quest to live the life we think we should, we lose sight of the life we truly want. We allow ourselves to be defined, dictated, and controlled by the world around us. We succumb to the pressures of conformity, the fear of judgment, and the relentless pursuit of societal expectations. We become mere pawns in a game we did not choose to play.

But let me remind you, my friend, that the world does not make us who we are. We are the creators, the architects of our own destiny. Our dreams, our passions, our true selves, they await our return. They lie dormant, patiently waiting for us to rediscover them, to reignite the flames that once burned so brightly.

We must break free from this robotic existence, this pre-defined path that we have unwittingly accepted. It is time to reclaim our lives, to live authentically, and to prioritize our own happiness. It is time to cast aside the shackles of expectations and rekindle the fire within us.

So, let us remember who we once were, who we still are deep down inside. Let us unapologetically pursue our passions, our dreams, and our trueselves. Let us carve out moments of joy and immerse ourselves in the activities that bring us alive. For it is in those moments that we truly live.

Don't let your teenage dreams fade away in the sea of obligations and responsibilities. Embrace them, cherish them, and make them a part of your life once again. Because in the end, it is not the world that defines us, but rather, it is we who shape the world.And it is within our own hearts that the true essence of living lies.
