Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight. Keel your mind right and your head up. Do well. Live well. Dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Big fan of superwog. Watch it for 4 minutes of rampant fun & goodness.)
Do what you love. And fuck everything else. Love who you want to love. And fuck their opinions. Fuck their criticisms. You deserve to live your life the way you want to live it. Chase who you want. Be who you want. Dress how you want. Speak what’s in your heart. Worship what you believe in. And be kind to others. And fuck everything else.
Fuck the drama. Fuck the pain. Fuck the hate. Fuck the social media manipulation. Fuck that. Be an authentic version of yourself. Life is too short to die wishing you had done a little more. (Not my words.)
Tomorrow is not promised. Not a single second or minute is promised. So, live for today. Keep the promises you make to yourself. Take action on the things you desire and want. Remind those that matter to you that they are loved and you are grateful for them. Never leave someone you care about on negative terms. Give more than you take. Make the calls you’ve been telling yourself you’ll do ‘tomorrow’. Let the small shit go. Never go to bed angry or upset. We will all die one day, so learn to live each day with the promise to yourself that it’ll be better than yesterday.
I saw a post today that said, “When you finally learn your place in peoples lives, your feelings won’t get hurt. And loyalty doesn’t mean accepting unlimited amounts of inconsistency & pain from others”.
Whether it’s friends, family or whoever. I swear that’s the truth and one of the most important life lessons you’ll learn.
Make choices that make people wonder if you’ve lost your mind. Disappoint people if needed. Fly off the handle. Learn to be alone. Learn to be with others too. Smile when you’re sad, just to confuse those who are trying to bring you down. Live a good life. Be kind when you can and understanding when you can’t. Be irreplaceable, undefeatable, incorrigible. Do all of the small things with grace, laughter and an unshakeable belief in what’s to come. Don’t you worry. Be a fearless authentic version of yourself. Life is fun, let it be.
You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving. Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else. Plan to outdo your past, not other people.
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.
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.
1. Go after dreams, not people 2. Love yourself and the rest will follow. 3. Never lose your sense of wonder. 4. You are capable of more than you know. 5. No regrets in life. Just lessons learned. 6. Your only limit is you. 7. Life goes by in a blink of an eye. So live life.
