You are on a rocket aimed for distant stars. You propel to the skies overcoming the gravity of life that try to drag you down. But the thrust of self-motivation pushes you up. You realize each second you’re burning oxygen and it takes hell lot of oxygen to fire up. You also need the escape velocity or energy to do so.
As you move up and up, you’ll have to break less important parts of your life cause some things do weigh you down. But the upper payload with all the important people and things has to be there at the final stage.
You will be where you are because of the efforts and aspirations of many others too. One mistake during your making and you’ll fall off mid away or blow apart. Remember Newton’s third law, every action of yours has a reaction. There could be another chance but it has its stakes.
It’s all mainly a dream to reach an uncharted space and a curiosity to know what’s beyond. The most exciting part of life on earth could be to get off of it. Hell, why not?!
