Remember you are not promised tomorrow. So how are you going to ensure that you crash your heart into your life? How are you going to ensure that you leave this world, whenever it happens for you, with a soul that is tender and full and weathered in the best way? With a soul that was never asked to make itself smaller, with a soul that was never waiting for the day it was skinnier, or prettier, or cooler, or more successful, in order to take advantage of the time it was given?
We cannot wait to be the people we have always dreamed of being. We cannot wait for life to perfect itself. There is no right time, there is no perfect circumstance. We have to leap, even when our legs are shaking. We have to show up for ourselves not in 3 months, or 5 years, or 10 years, but now. In this moment. Because every single day is a blessing. Every single day is a gift. Do not lose sight of that.
No one else can possibly know what kinda power you’ve got going on inside you. What kinda potential, life-force, and creative ability you contain. Only you know the beginning and end of that. And even if you tell anyone about your dreams, and they nod their head, like, “Yes, yes, maybe that’s meant to be”, they should never need to be convinced that you will reach those dreams. Because your dreams are not theirs. Let go of their opinion. Let go of their judgement. Let go of their support, even if it is coming from the most loving place. Let it go. Because it’s not for them to know, this thing that you are dreaming.
You know where you’re going. You know what you are capable of. There is no need to prove this or explain this or articulate this to anyone else. It is entirely up to you. And you need all the space within you to be free for new realities. Make sure you’ve cleared that space. Make sure nothing else is influencing that space. Make sure that this dream is all and only you. BUILD YOURSELF LIKE YOU DREAM.
Figure out what you want to do with your life and just do it. Dedicate a separate journal for you to write down all of your goals. And don’t just stop at journaling, make detailed steps towards achieving them. Stopping sitting around and half arsing your way through things because you can’t seem to find any direction, because seriously, life is what you make it and sometimes you need to get up and force yourself to do the things you know will benefit future you.
Things like I’m still young or I’m too old are out of the question. No matter how old you are, what you study or where you study, use the time you have right now to learn & hustle. I mean really hustle. Because you don’t want to look back and say you should’ve worked harder, trained harder, tried harder, thought harder, loved harder or fought harder. DISCIPLINE & CONSISTENT APPROACH towards all your EFFORTS are your only two best friends in your journey. Don’t give yourself a reason to have regrets later on in life.
It is important to know who you are, what you stand for and how you want to see yourself. You have your whole life for you, and you determine what you do with it and how you will experience your journey. There is no one who can tell you who you are, because you decide for yourself. You make your own choices, you choose your own direction and you determine your own steps.
Think about who you are, think about how you position yourself against others. Think of your qualities, your intentions & consistent approach. See yourself as the person you want to be, without thinking about your status, your score, your ability or the people around you. Nothing or nobody should affect who you are as a person, who you are in terms of thinking, who you are with your true intentions, who you are in your actions. The life you have for you is your chance to follow your dreams, to discover, to develop and to enjoy yourself. Imagine a life in which you are completely yourself, in which you fulfill your dreams. Live your life.

Work hard but don’t let work take over your life. That way you will lose yourself. Love, but love for the right reasons. Life is too short for anything mediocre. Know who you are and know that you are worthy of reaching your dreams and that it is never too late to start creating that life you have always dreamed of. Do not compare yourself to others, that’s just deadly. No two souls are the same. You are your own person, you are beautiful, and you are unique. Put your trust in the universe. Some things are just meant to happen, and some are not.
Let go of whatever is stealing your happiness, it’s hard but it is worth it. Embrace change. Embrace life. Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust and let go. FIND BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE. (Not my words).
There is someone out there in the world that doesn’t have to be forced to fit into your puzzle called LIFE. Do not take the risk of settling for someone if you’re uncertain of your feelings just because you want some kind of companionship. There is someone out there who is meant for you. Leave the door open for them to come in. Until then: Focus on you.
Focus on pursuing your goals and give yourself the opportunity to make your dreams come true without being distracted by detours. Surround yourself with family, loyal loved ones and successful people, that way you’ll learn how to succeed from them. Learn to better yourself everyday by taking what they teach you and teaching what they taught you. Be patient and keep yourself busy. Allow love to catch up to you, but on its own time.
No one knows what you need to do more than you do. Cry when you need to. It’s relieving. Laugh when you need to. It’s healing. Sit alone when you need to. It’s necessary. Surround yourself with strangers when you need to. It’s eye-opening. Living by your needs is not easy. No one said it was.
But a fact that you should always remember is this: “you are more worthy of being taken care of than anyone around you”. And I don’t mean the superficial kind of care. I mean the care that your soul needs. Everyone around you is struggling somehow. Everyone around you is trying to reach a goal, a destination, or a dream. Just as you might not expose your worries to the world, no one else has to.
Remember that you are a work in progress. You are not perfect. You are not expected to be perfect. Do not allow the fear of falling to stop you from jumping. Do not allow the fear of responsibility to stop you from committing. Do not allow the fear of exposure to stop you from shining. FOLLOW WHAT YOU FEEL & FEED YOUR SOUL.
No matter what is going on in your world, no matter what happens today- do everything with a joyful heart. During the highs and lows, choose a stance of celebration. Everyday, choose to find something to be thankful for, decide to find the gold, and resolve to look for the happy moments.
If you can’t find anything to be joyful about, remember this: you are alive with a beating heart and air flowing through your lungs. This means your work here is not finished, and you haven’t reached your story’s end. You have a purpose; you have a dream that needs you to bring it to life. That is something to be joyful about and celebrate. (Not my words) Fetch your purpose.
