My role model, my values, my future

Someone once challenged me and asked, whether I would like to know something from what is going to come, if I had this chance. My answer was negative. Why? Because knowing the future, makes me act different in the present. Why not act like I feel in the present and let me surprised by the result in the future? Firstly, I do not belive in idols, just in people who, through their words or actions, influence and shape our lives. Do we really need to build up our society on copycats or better, on unique people? But still, one thing I belive in are the quotes and one of them really guides me through this messy, but amazing life: “Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do and damned if you don't.” (Eleanor Roosevelt). What have I learnt? No matter what I do, whether I like it or not, people will judge me. Therefore, why shouldn’t I always listen to my heart? That might be the right way to a succesful future! Secondly, I belive in moral values and we, young people, ar likely to change the world through respect, understood, love, support for the human beings arond us. I might not be wise enough to make a change at this moment, but still I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and, hopefully, there is no long way until I reach it. A moral behaviour, golden words and open, lively thoughts will eventually save us. My future? Unpredictable! I live the present moment, gaining experience and making wishes, that might get into reality in the future. I have aims for the future, but the Lord may have other plans for me. I find myself in a constant battle with my own person, where joy, tolerence, education and love try to beat all the darkness out of my life. If they win, only the future will decide. Until then, I wish all the best for me and for you and dreams will come true...
