Ignorance is bliss.
That's not completely true because it's ignorance that leads to racism and discrimination, amongst many things.
However, sometimes, ignorance really does aid us in reaching for our dreams in a way that knowledge cannot.
Think of all that you went through to get to where you are today. If you have had all the information back then; if you had all the knowledge of the problems, challenges, sweat and tears of what pursuing your dream entails... maybe you wouldn't even have started your journey.
Of course the unknown is scary, but strangely enough the bigger fear is to actually KNOW what we have to go through. It's one thing to walk a path full of hope and determination, it's another thing to walk the same path already knowing the pitfalls that await us.
Would you have done the things you've done if you've known how difficult it was?
Would you have forged ahead if you had a good idea of how treacherous the journey would be?
We would probably hesitate, or we'd be tired just thinking about it.
No matter how old we get, there's a part of us that thrives on ignorance, because it's precisely the lack of knowledge, that leads to the lack of fear, that emboldens our spirit to pursue adventures.
Ignorance at its finest is optimistic, it leads to curiosity and it will take us on journeys and lessons fraught with difficulties and failures, but it will also bring us joy and success and the experience of saying "I had no idea if it was going to work, but I dared to do it."
So wear the rose coloured glasses, dare to dream and if anyone tells you that you have no idea what you're doing, you can tell them it's precisely because you have no idea that you don’t know what to fear… and that's a recipe for success and a great way to be happy, always!
