This is my quest, to follow that star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far... Ah yes, that takes me back, a great old song!
It speaks to me still today -- "The Impossible Dream" -- because I don't know the meaning of the word. "Impossible?" Not in my vocabulary.
(Technically it's in my vocabulary. I've heard others use the word, but I myself don't.)
The key thing is -- There's a quest. I'm on a quest for something better...
We think of self-esteem and what all that means. One thing it doesn't mean is sitting on your duff, consumed with regrets.
There's a million and one regrets for what might've been -- I could've, should've, would've.
That'd be enough to weigh down anyone. And it's practically always self-inflicted, and a wound that is hard to heal.
Because it's an endless cycle of wasting away today, wasting away tomorrow, then looking back and saying I shouldn't have done it.
The time to say "I shouldn't have done it" is before you do it -- NOW! And look up, look out, look ahead, look anywhere but down or back.
And press on, with a fire in your heart. A quest in your mind and a quest in your heart. Think of what's out there, then go for it!
If you think it's impossible, go TWICE just to show 'em!
