I think whatever you do in life or want is based upon on one thing whether you deny it or not. Love.
What we do in life echoes in eternity
What do you want out of life? I ask this because people have all different answers to this. Is it to start a family? To become wealthy and successful? Or to change the world in some aspect? Mine would be the third one. I want to leave some kind of legacy behind before I leave this earth forever.
I’m not sure how I’ll do it or when. Life is this ever changing creature that most people are scared of because they don’t know it. To say I know this world is completely insane. I’ve lived in Melbourne my whole life, traveled to Sydney twice. I’ve never left the country! What if I was supposed to be in a certain place at a certain time and THAT’S WHEN I CHANGE THE WORLD?
It’s tough keeping a balance in your life. This year I’ve seen friends come and go, but the true friends will always be there. School’s taught me to meet deadlines and I’m happy I’m able to motivate myself now. I’ve also learnt a lot about discipline. Things will happen eventually but you can’t expect them straight away. It’s taken me 22 years to finally gain a proper grip on life so I shouldn’t expect to have that perfect life within a week, month, year, or even decade.
We’re going to fail, A LOT in life. But it’s your responsibility to learn from the mistakes and make sure you improve them next time. Some people may wonder how I keep so happy all the time. Honestly, I don’t properly know the answer. I just look forward to the future and put myself in the best position to make an impact when it counts. You guys should do the same. The past is tough, trust me, I know. Time will heal it but you’ll always have a scar. But don’t let it worry you, cause someday it will all come together if it hasn’t already. Believe in what seems like the unbelievable now and watch your dreams come true.
Go out and be social, meet new people. You never know what those new people will do for you in your life. And you’ll never know how they’ll change your life. So smile, be free, be happy, and remember what we do in life echoes in eternity.

Some wise words
Don’t hate. Appreciate!
Don’t worry, be happy.
Welcome to my first blog post (blog, what’s that?) Yes, I know most people on Tumblr just post pictures and re-blog these days. I’ve honestly lost count of how many times I’ve re-vamped this page so I’m going to keep this as a source of finding inspiration to pursue your dreams in life.
My name is Kevin and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’m 22 years old and currently am studying at RMIT University. Today I want to talk about changing your perspective on life as I’ve done this this year and it’s impacted me in a BIG way!
See, this year I’ve change my entire perspective on life. I’ve realized you can’t control people emotions so I’ve been really focusing on making my own better. Instead of wasting time I’ve been working (not even a job) but on everything else to make sure I’m never really bored. And it’s worked! I’ve shifted my whole momentum to being happy and positive so no matter the situation, I know that if I’m only doing me (I swear I’m not talking about sex) than I’ll be alright.
A few nights ago, I finished up a season of music band shoots with a group of RMITV production people. The 3 months I’ve been with them have been the best. I’ve learnt so much in the production process and the people I met there honestly feel like family. So the band shoots finish and I go with them after to a pub. Trouble is, my old school friends wanted me to go to another pub in the city as well (also I had to miss my one of my closest friend’s bday dinner as well).
I went to the first pub with the production crew and it was so fun. Everyone was happy and talking about everyday stuff. Playing pool and just generally a positive attitude. An hour flew by and I honestly did not want to leave but my other friends pretty much set up the pub meeting because they haven’t seen me in so long. So with much regret I parted ways with the crew and proceeded to the next pub.
I got there and saw their wonderful faces but the atmosphere completely shifted. The talks became about how they’ve broken up with their girlfriends and got quite depressing. I did my best to change the convo but ultimately it felt like a depressing session of gossip guy. All I really wanted to do was go back to the first pub and hang out with them.
For once, it felt like a passing of time. I had gotten over that stage of being not satisfied with life. But it was so hard to tell them to be happy and know that everything happens for a reason. Learn from them and take the best bits to remember. But the night ended reasonable, I went home and had a great sleep. Woke up, like most days this year and just started doing things. It’s crazy how little you care about the negative people once you phase them out.
Just thought I’d share that story with you guys. That’s all, enjoy the blog! I won’t be writing posts that very often because it’s take up quite a bit of time. Thanks for reading!

"Pursuit of Happyness" ending. No matter what your circumstances are, you keep your head up. You keep focus on the goal. And when you finally get it, be humble, because there’s nothing worse than cockyness.
