You’ve got to ask yourself, what you’re living for, who you’re living for, and if none of those answers begin with “YOU”, then you’re living your life wrong. You’re living a lie.
Everything you do should revolve around you. Every person, every place, every moment, should start and end with you.
This is your LIFE and you shouldn’t spend it on dull things or boring people. Don’t spend it in people who don’t understand the type of love you carry within your bones. Because you only live once and it’s your job to make it count. So let everyday be yours, own it. Never apologize for being who you are. Your authenticity is the only source of a consistent delightful life.
In a world that seeks connection, we oddly avoid eye contact, we time our text responses in order to protect ourselves from seeming too eager or too interested, and we hold our feelings back because we don’t want to seem overly emotional or unreasonable.
We silence our instincts, and at the end of the day instead of feeling good about ourselves, we feel alone, we feel misunderstood.
Remember, it is okay to be emotional, to seek help, to confidently tell someone you enjoy being around that you are infatuated with them. There is nothing wrong with vulnerability, with being human, for that is what creates depth within our relationships, and that is what ultimately unifies us. If your feelings & emotions bring joy, show them. Living a happy life means, do what you wish to do right now.
Travel, and tell no one. Live a true LOVE, and tell no one. Stay HAPPY, and tell no one. Vibe with your tribe, and tell no one. Succeed with your goals, and tell no one. Celebrate your success, and tell no one.
If it’s beautiful, tell no one. People ruin beautiful things. They don’t know how to value BEAUTIFUL.
When you are happy with someone/something in private, you don’t need to prove it on social media. Just because you don’t share it on social media, doesn’t mean you’re not up to big things. Keep your personal life PERSONAL. People who have a life, they don’t need to prove they got one. (Not my words).
Live it and stay lowkey. Privacy is important. Privacy is everything. Privacy is precious. In a world where most are overexposed while doing nothing positive, choose a private you who’s accessible only to an exclusive group of handful people. PRIVACY IS THE GREATEST LUXURY.
Life will always be filled with ups and downs. It’s the law of nature. Yin and yang, light and dark. It’s the nature of life and it’s okay. We must embrace the duality inherent within life. Without night, there is no day. Without male, there is no female. Without black, there is no white. Without negative, there is no positive.
Spending your life trying to make every thing be light only creates suffering. Spending your energy to only hold on to light is not freedom. We must learn to embrace the darkness, and in doing so, we transform ourselves. In accepting the nature of life, we accept what is and what isn’t and experience freedom. Life will always have expansion and contraction. When you stop seeking for perfection outside in the constantly changing world and realize that inside you is the ultimate perfection, that your soul is perfect beyond duality, beyond good or bad-when you understand that, you are free. Truly free. You see that life is perfect even in its seeming imperfection. Peace is an inside job. Don’t look for peace in the world because you won’t find. You can’t truly be free until you deal with the duality of life, to come into a harmonious relationship with what it is. Learn to dance with the reality of life.
This is life, and it is what it is. Shit is gonna happen. It’s gonna get complicated. We’re gonna relapse. We’re gonna need time-outs. We’re gonna be weak. We’re gonna be strong. We’re gonna lose our shit and yell for people to get the fuck out of our lives. We’re gonna break down and beg some people to stay in our lives. Some days we’re gonna feel everything all at once. Other days, we’re gonna feel nothing at all. We’re gonna be in some bad spaces. We’re gonna be in some amazing ones. We’re gonna get on our knees crying and hurting and begging for help. We’re gonna get on our knees and pray just to say thank you. We’re gonna have moments when we know exactly what we want, and we’re sure. We’re gonna have moments when we legit have no fucking clue what we want, and we’re confused.
This life shit isn’t a movie, and I think sometimes, we forget that. Life is the way you pursue it.
