On misfortune and uncertainty.

In life, there will be moments of sadness and heartache, and situations with explanations beyond our understanding. That is life. C’est la vie. These dichotomies are what make living on the spectrum of color, joy, wealth, and fortune worth it. Tomorrow’s uncertainty is today’s ambition. Fear of the unknown only hinders a person from experiencing life for all that it can offer. Freedom is living bold.

Ambition tells me, “I can.”
Ambition pushes me to sweat.
Ambition tracks my progress.

Ambition is 100 push-ups before bed.
Ambition is reading on my free time.
Ambition is living vegan.
Ambition is practicing yoga before I even know what day it is.

Ambition is living up my dreams despite life’s obstacles.
Ambition leads to a life full of fulfillment.
