Comparisons are a natural part of life. They go hand in hand with experiences. they’re something you can’t really avoid but they’re something I recommend you do. Often when I’m thinking about a situation I think about a similar one and wonder what is better. This can be good when you’re pointing out the positive experience of a new situation however it can have a massive negative influence as well.
While it is good to feel as though your life has progress it is important not to get caught up in the nitty grittyness of making steps forward. Every opportunity you take is a new beginning. Every decision you make has an opportunity and a consequence. Every relationship has positives negatives and of course compromise. If any one of those things outweighs the other you need to re-evaluate the situation. What’s more important than analysing every situation of you life is enjoying it. We’re not here for a long time the best we can do is make it a good time.
While you sit there reflecting where you are and where you’d like to be in life stop and think about the things that you are proud of. Stop and be thankful for the amazing friends, the talents or the simple things that you are thankful for. Be thankful for the fact that you found a carpark, a seat on the bus the fact that the sun is shining. There is endless opportunity to be thankful. If you can’t be thankful for anything at least feel appreciated and if you’ve managed to make it this far down my ramble of words I for one really do appreciate you so thank you for taking the time to read this blog.
Relationships are one area of life that I find really difficult. I am the kind of person that falls hard and fast. I like to see the best in people and while this can be a really good thing in the right situation it can be a really bad thing when the wrong person comes along. Take things slow. Get to know someone. Don’t give them everything right away. There is something about mysteriousness that people are attracted to. When you’re in a relationship enjoy it for what it is. Don’t dwell on the past. Things didn’t work out for a reason. Of course learn from why things didn’t work out and try to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes but at some point you’re just going to have to let go of Rebecca from your year 11 Geography class or Sam from your year 13 first 15 team.
While sometimes there are parts of your life you might not want to share be open and honest its paramount for a relationship to work. If someone cares enough about you they will accept you and the path that you have walked. There is a lot more to every person than meets the eye. I am telling you that for free right now. While on the outside you see a person blue eyes, blond hair and a cute button nose inside there are feelings, emotions, chemical reactions that only mad scientists can tell you about.
I guess what I am trying to say here is enjoy the moment, learn from the past, prepare for the future. Don’t dwell on every situation because the more time you spend thinking about it the less time you have to enjoy it.
What ever it is you’re going after, boy, girl, job, car, house, baby, pet, travel just know you’ve got the power to make it happen. If you can picture it you can make it happen. Think positively, walk gracefully, know your worth, remember there is no one else like you. Allow you passion to drive your future. Remember where you’ve come from and aim for the top. It won’t always been smooth sailing but the challenges will make the reward that much sweeter.
GO GET EM!
