This reminds me of Big Fish, an amazing musical that I am low-key obsessed with.
One line stuck with me.
“I’ve seen how my story ends, and this ain’t it.”
And while most people don’t get the opportunity to see how they die, everybody has their life in their hands.
Your story doesn’t have to end here.
More than that,
Instead of waiting to see where life will take you,
Make life wait to see where you go.
Instead of wondering what the world is going to throw at you this time,
Make the world wonder what the hell you’re throwing at it now.
Raise the roof, raise your standards, raise hell,
It’s up to you.
And that, luv, is the most terrifying truth of all.
