It’s the little things in life. It’s the people who don’t just text you, but take the time out of their day to put you in their schedule; no matter how busy they are. It’s the friends that are authentic and don’t fake what they feel. The people who are straight with you and accept you for who you are; down to the raw scars and burns. It’s the pure feeling of happiness while driving your AMG when you’re listening to music with people you love and there is absolutely no where else in the entire world you would rather be. It’s the feeling like we’ll live forever, like we’re young forever. It’s the love that soothes our heart which makes life feel happy to die for. It’s the love that breaks our hearts but knowing the feeling of pain and feeling the pain, but getting through the pain; only to be grateful for the feel of life, the feel of living.
Moments and little things, acts that make every breathe so incredibly amazing. That’s what I live for; these moments that make us feel infinite. Life is fun. Let it be.
In LOVE, I have been elated and brokenhearted and felt every emotion in between. As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace the painful parts, because I realize they make me stronger and they are just parts of life. It hurts to power through the rough times but just like a muscle, it must be exercised before it’s able to become stronger.
Think about a specific painful moment in your life, and then think about how that feeling didn’t last forever even though you thought it would. Remember that life will continue to go on and time really does heal all wounds. I’m grateful for all the love and all the heartache I’ve experienced in my life. Both have been equally wonderful.
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.
Life can be so beautiful. Five years ago i never would’ve pictured myself where i am right now. I may not have everything i want. I may not have found all the happiness in this world. But almighty has blessed me in certain areas with way more than i ever imagined. In my journey of growth & becoming who i am today, i wish not to hurt anyone. All i hope is to be truthful, busy & productive. Efficient & effective with the way i am, you know, i’m content, i’m content right now. And that gives me immense amount of fulfillment to my soul. I am grateful to be alive & to be breathing. I never imagined i would get this far but i did & if i can do it, then you can too.
Happiness may feel like a far fetched dream. But happiness is not a destination. Chasing it will only ever push you further away from it. The more you chase things or people, the further they run from you. Just acknowledge your own being, your own existence, everything you seek for on the outside has always resided within you. Delve deep within, you’ll realise living is beautiful. Life is a gift. (Not my words).
Every morning when the sun rises, I am a changed person. There is no use looking back at yesterday. I am no longer the person I was back then. Changed by the experiences I’ve had, the lessons I have learnt, and the love I have received. It’s time to move forward and embrace the life that I’ve been given. Be grateful for the many blessings that have been bestowed upon me. And start living a life of passion. There will always be ups and downs, good times and bad, losses and gains.
Life is about learning lessons, showing love in the process, and growing into the beautiful souls we are meant to become. Don’t let yesterday rob you of your happiness today. Every time the sun rises, it’s a new opportunity to make your life the best of your life. Enjoy every moment.
I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when people smile at me, when people are polite to me.
There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful. I have every reason in the world to be happy. Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things. Don’t get caught up in what you can’t control. Focus on the positive.
FEELINGS, the thing about this way that you feel right now is that it’s only temporary. I know that your mind is consumed right now, suffocating; it’s like you can’t find a way to think about anything other than the things that are causing you anxiety. These feelings don’t last. It may not feel like it right now, but this feeling will fade; maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but you will smile again, you will feel like you again, you will feel happy and full of life again. Nothing is permanent. That’s the bittersweet part about life. That’s why it’s so important to appreciate the truly amazing parts and people in your life while also understanding that the bad days won’t last forever. Always be present, always be grateful, always know that you’ll get through this obstacle and the one after that.
You’re so much stronger than you think you are right now. Think about it; you’ve gotten through every tough day in your life so far, and this is no different. Take a big breath and think of all the things you have to be grateful for and breathe out all the bad. You are in control of how you feel. You are in control of this moment. YOU ARE IN CONTROL. PERIOD.
Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday full monty brunches with your mates. About the new cute girl in your class. About the good/bad grades in your test. About finding an extra buck in your pocket before laundry. About your pay raise/bonus from employer. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining.
Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right. Each new day is a blessing. Let go of all worries and be grateful for all the positive in your life. Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is the new success. Health is the new wealth. Kindness is the new cool. Be you & be HAPPY out of choice.
