Keep The Fire Burning...

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for..

I  think the band U2 said it best with their song, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".  Funny thing is, I've never really listened to U2 that much.  I am a huge music driven individual, so to not even give U2 a try was a huge mistake. U2 has such a huge following, and maybe it's the "mainstream" aspect of them, that first turned me off. But I recently started listening to them, because I heard they were a huge inspiration for my favorite band Angels & Airwaves, which AvA is one of my inspiration sources. And then the pieces started to fall into place, I got it, I could see U2's messages in their songs, just like AvA tries to spread "Love".  

I encourage you to take some time to think on this topic I am about to talk about..   This relates to, but is a little different than my previous post on "What Inspires you?" I am not talking about things that "inspires" you, but more of a goal or dream you wish to one day achieve.  Take your inspirations and put them into action! My faith in Jesus & love inspire me everyday to live a more positive and optimistic life and accomplish my dreams.  

What do you seek with all your heart? what is it that drives you? It can be a numerous amount of things. The way I see it...  the more things in your life that you seek and are driven towards the better. All of you have a "calling", a "purpose". Each person's "calling"/"purpose" is different and unique in his or her own way. We need embrace & remember our "inspirations" I talked about in an earlier post and use them to accomplish and obtain our "Dreams & Goals" 

Once you achieve/obtain a certain goal or dream, start the next journey to accomplish the next great chapter in your life and reach new heights. You can obtain and achieve anything and everything you want out of life. The question is.. What do you want out of life? What do you want to accomplish during your time on  earth? What kind of impact do you want to leave on the planet and those around you? 

Maybe a long lasting heartfelt message to the ones you love? or make an impact on the environment for a cleaner tomorrow? or a leaving your positive teachings to youth and students of today? etc..  or all of the above and so much more! There are endless opportunities out there for each of us.. 

Make sure you are always "seeking" & "driven" towards your dreams,  then you will accomplish great things in your life!  *Remember to always keep the fire burning inside you! 

We would all like to hope our history on this earth is worth remembering, with great heart-felt life achievements & accomplishing goals & dreams, but along the way we have to remember that there is something even bigger than ourselves..  

Make sure you impact those around you in every positive way you can! Because you need people to share your achievements & dreams with.. 

I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel, sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear
Without a trace
I want to take shelter
From the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love, and when I go there
I go there with you, it's all I can do
- U2 - "Where the streets have no name"

Always be persistent in your dreams and goals and you will achieve great things in life.. 

"Keep the Fire Burning"
