♪Don’t go chasing waterfalls♪
Hugely famous song— but do you know what it’s about?
What does chasing waterfalls even mean and why should we stick to the rivers and the lakes that we’re used to?
That’s how TLC described people chasing intangible dreams without thinking of the consequences. Basically saying — don’t make stupid decisions.
By sticking to the lakes and rivers— they meant that we should do what makes our life better and what we are meant to do. Play it safe and don’t do something you’ll regret.
I have to say I have mixed feelings about this. If we always played it safe, we wouldn’t take the risks needed in order to grow. But if we take too many risks without thinking of the potential outcome, then we could end up in a load of trouble.
This is why I believe in b a l a n c e.
