Instead of feeling like you’re behind, feel grateful for any setbacks you’ve had in your life and each lesson you have learned along the way. Be grateful for each relationship and what you were able to learn about yourself through falling in and out of love. Feel proud of how strong you have become from each time you were left to put the pieces of your broken heart back together. Be grateful that you learned that you will heal again no matter what you go through.
You should be proud that you learned how to recognize and move on from situations that are no longer good for you. You might feel like you are behind, but when you really think about it, everything you have been through has made you the person you are now. Your experience is your strength, and you shouldn’t wish to change that for anything.
Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom it always end up the way it should be.
Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always. Be you, and be okay with it. Be a shameless authentic version of yourself.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I always share what I like. Watch it.)
I am slowly learning how to just be in this moment. How to survive. How to exist. How to live. How to thrive. How to understand that I cannot control life. How to understand that I can only experience life in both it’s light and it’s dark stages. I am slowly learning how to laugh and cry and feel through it all. I am learning how to welcome the confusion and the joy that come with loving and living and breaking.
I am slowly learning how to accept where I am. I am slowly learning how to simply believe in what I am becoming. I am becoming a better version of myself, and that journey is just AMAZING.
We all have a bag. We all pack differently. Some of us are traveling light. Some of us are secret hoarders who’ve never parted with a memory in our lives. I think we are all called to figure out how to carry our bag to the best of our ability, how to unpack it, and how to face the mess.
I think part of growing up is learning how to sit down on the floor with all your things and figuring out what to take with you and what to leave behind. (Not my words.)
LIVE WITH PURPOSE- The first step to some major main character energy is to live with purpose. As the main character of your life, one of the worst possible things you can do is to let it pass you by. The goals, desires, and accomplishments you hope to see happen are up to you to work towards.
SET BOUNDARIES- While you’re learning to be main character in your life, you need to develop confidence and comfortability in setting boundaries with other people. You know what you want, and what’s important to you, and you need to be okay with removing things and relationships that don’t allow you to maintain those.
Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong. We’re human. We break. We make mistakes. But don’t let pain and sadness run your life.
Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. I know you’re weak. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run. It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learning from it.
What interests me the most, is a persons mind. Their stories. Their thoughts. The memories. The secrets that lay dormant in their head, waiting to be told. I find it so interesting. Cause I have been through a lot. And I am just fascinated by other’s struggles. Everyone has their own struggle. I love learning from someone’s life. How they came to be the person they are today, why they act or talk the way they do. These all dictate a person’s character, values & personality. It’s just very interesting. Be an authentic version of yourself fearlessly.
