Each day the world turns and the sun rises, babies are born and the elderly pass, children grow and adults learn, books are written and songs are sung, countries unite and nations fight, people suffer and people recover.
So to think that today’s troubles are permenant is a sign that you are not aware of just how everchanging our lives actually are and just how incredible this existence is. Life changes for better & you gotta live yours. Be you. (Not my words.)
Enthusiastic listeners. People who don’t make you guess if they’re mad. Direct communicators. The friend who helps you clean your room. Those who are kind to those who can do nothing for them. Messy folks who repeatedly get it wrong but never stop trying to get it right anyway. Kindred spirits. Loud laughers. Pals who make the grocery store fun. Loved ones who get as excited about your success as you do. The person you feel comfortable crying in front of. Sing-in-the-car friends. People who text you to look at the moon. People who text you just to say hi. The one you’ve known since childhood who you can go a long time without talking to but nothing changes. Those who understand the value of holding space. The mentor who pushes you to do better because they want better for you. Patient teachers. Healers. Scrappy souls. Hard workers. Friends you can joke about hypothetical situations with for hours on end.
The genuine ones. Anyone who leaves you feeling good afterward, not just when you’re with them. People who see your fault lines and say they have them too. Anyone who came to mind as you read this. Hold them close. Love them hard.
As you mature, the more you realize these 12 things:
1: No one has it all together. 2: Trusting your gut the first time is usually the best option. 3: The world is more gray than black and white. 4: You can’t control other people. 5: Holding grudges is not the best use of your time. 6: Being honest could save you a lot of time. 7: Childhood, although short, was very impactful. 8: Life is too short to stay in unhealthy relationships. 9: People tell you exactly who they are and it’s your job to listen. 10: Winning an argument is not as important as finding a solution. 11: Having a support system improves your mood and quality of life. 12: Everything and everyone is not worth your energy.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I have heard enough of LOVE ABOVE MONEY or similar bullshits very often. Most people prefer not talking about MONEY as if it’s a taboo. On the other hand, i love it when someone says “I LOVE MONEY & I LOVE MAKING MONEY. ALL MY DEMANDS ARE FROM MYSELF”. First learn about it, then implement it. Investment is a sexy thing.)
