‎I go to seek a Great Perhaps


"I go to seek a Great Perhaps." --Francois Rabelais

(Realizations after reading John Green’s Looking for Alaska)

Admit or not, we all are afraid of the unknown.

A lot of times, we sacrifice better things because we are afraid of the transition period from the ‘now’ and the ‘future’. We became so comfortable with our present situation even though deep down, we know we can do so much better.

It is this feeling of taking a big risk that holds us back on becoming better. Contentment isn’t bad but seeking for a GREAT PERHAPS isn’t bad either. Taking risk is easier said than done. But can you just leave the possibility of a better ‘now’ just your contented living your 'minor' life?

Constantly dreaming but doing nothing. There should come a time in our lives when we dream endlessly and ended up disappointed; that shouldn’t stop you to go and explore.

There will be a time when you realize your life is so easy you doubt it if you’re really living.

FEARS. DOUBTS. These things are like ropes tight on our feet so we can’t move forward.

What we are afraid to? Getting hurt.
Who do we doubt? Ourselves.

STOP being afraid and STOP doubting yourself. GO dream and start doing something to achieve it.

“Before I got here, I thought that the way out of the labyrinth was to pretend that it didn't exist, to build a small, self-sufficient world in the back corner of the endless maze and to pretend that I was not lost, but home. But that only led to a lonely life accompanied by the last words of the already dead, so I came here looking for a Great Perhaps, for real friends and a more-than-minor life.”
