The real glow up isn’t proving the people from your past wrong. It is finally feeling so content and hopeful about your future that you stop thinking about them entirely. When you want to change your life in order for it to look different, and only that, you are still orbiting around the opinions of people who didn’t love you, and didn’t have any intention to.
A real glow up is authentic. It is lifting off all the cover-up bullshit and addressing the real problems. It is healing. It is changing, for good. It is, for the first time, prioritizing your heart over someone else’s eyes. The real glow up is realizing that you have nobody to prove wrong but yourself. (Not my words.)
There comes a very important time in your life where you need to sit yourself down and ask; “If you’re really living your life! Are you content or are you happy? Are you seeing or living?”
You only have one shot at this. Travel great distances if that’s what you please. Or stay at home and build a beautiful garden is that’s where you see yourself happiest. If you aren’t happy, then change. Analyze your life and get rid of anything that doesn’t make you happy. One day when you’re eighty years old, you’re going to wish you did. You’re going to wish you lived differently and there’s no way to go back and change it. LIVE YOUR ALL DREAMS, GOALS, DESIRES WHILE BEING THE MOST AUTHENTIC VERSION OF YOURSELF.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I liked this Ted talk by Bill Gates. And this pandemic could be the last pandemic we ever experience. Watch it if you have 15 minutes.)
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).
