Some people carry wisdom at a very young age, that one would think only an old man or woman is capable of. Some have inner beauty that runs so deep that it penetrates your mind and makes you question if they're really like that or if it's an act. Some have outer beauty that makes you gasp for air upon seeing God's beautiful creation. Some have intelligence that can literally run circles around your brain and you ponder, how did they not study and yet still ace that exam, when you studied all night long and got a B.
Some people are so funny that in a dry, regular talking voice they can get you on your knees begging for mercy, so you'd stop laughing for just a minute. Some people have imaginations that run wild like a hail storm and they write books and books and blow you away with their creative minds. Some people paint and it flows, as if the tip of the brush has literally become part of their body. Some people dance and have this amazing rhythm and can feel the music bleeding in their bones.
The beautiful thing about life is that we all have a gift and we simply need to let go of what everyone wants us to be and find ourselves, so that we may discover what our gift is. Explore the world! Travel and discover yourself! Dance, sing, skate, fly, pray, and try everything you find interesting and embrace the feelings that those experiences bring about. Everyone has their own beliefs and views on things. Some are instilled in us by our families from a very young age, where we don't truly get a chance to discover ourselves, and what feelings and views we would've naturally gravitated towards.
Be free and let go of instilled behaviors and try something new. You don't have to change if something feels wrong. But, the lack of knowledge could haunt you at an old age if you don't explore more while you're younger. I believe in keeping traditions in my religion and I find much beauty in that. However, the knowledge and wisdom that is at our fingertips to learn more, grow, and expand all of our views will only make us individually better as human beings for ourselves and to each other. Exploring other cultures, religions, and different viewpoints can open our eyes and let us see things from other people's perspectives, even when we choose a different way.
