A friend posted this quote on Instagram earlier this week and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I read it. I think in life we get way too caught up thinking which means we don’t actually make the most of our lives. There are always going to be things that we aren’t totally happy about. There will be times when we feel down. There will be days when we don’t want to get out of bed that’s just a part of life. Don’t get used to it find a way to get back to that happy place, what ever it might be.
Love is one of the most precious things we can experience but like all things in life there is good love and bad love. Love can be difficult but it can be so rewarding and when you meet the person of your dreams love for the most part will be easy. I believe in unconditional love a love that is sacred. A love free from jealousy but instead full of happiness. Love doesn’t require gestures of value. A caring love will mean so much more than material love ever will. The simple questions make all the difference. Showing you actually care is paramount in achieving unconditional love. Love is endless when you think of that special someone where is the limit? There is no limit this is the person you would do anything for. This is the person you would compromise for. The person who’s company you enjoy more than anybody else. While this love is special and it’s important that you invest time and energy into it, it’s also important that you keep up other friends, hobbies and a life outside that love. Don’t ever become dependant on that person. You are an individual you have your own identity and no matter how much you love someone it is essential that you remain independent.
A gentle life is a good life. While you will feel passionate about certain thing and there will be times you feel the most intense anger try not to be an angry person. Try and take the good for the good and make the bad better. Energy is precious use your time wisely and put your energy into positive outcomes. Make gentle decisions you don’t need to cut people from you life for any reason find a way to include them but in a positive way, sometimes you need a little time for yourself and that’s ok too just be open and honest. A good conversation is the difference between misunderstanding and moving forward in a positive way. Sometimes you might not have the words but try to explain your thoughts and feelings. It isn’t easy but hey what in life is easy? Patients is a massive part of living a gentle life. You might need answers but somethings require time and sometimes time is a good healer. Hindsight is also a beautiful thing while the heat of the moment can sometimes get the best of you take a few deep breaths and think in a month how much is this going to effect me? If it’s not something that will influence you for the rest of you life then I think you’ve just answered your own question, it’s not a life and death situation so just sit on it for a minute.
In life we will experience rejection for a lot of reasons. Sometimes we don’t understand the reason at that particular moment but eventually all will be revealed and you will understand why you have toe experience hard times and the struggles that you face. Saying goodbye to someone is never easy but sometimes you just have to let go and allow them to achieve their dreams. You might want to be a part of those dreams and be the support system behind them achieving their dreams but you can’t force yourself into someone else’s life. As much as it might hurt you everything happens for a reason. You’ve been a part of that persons life for a reason and now it’s time to focus on you. Don’t give up hope the future is so unknown and there’s no point writing off any opportunity because you just don’t know what is around the corner. It’s not just people that you have to let go of sometimes it is a job, sometimes it is a dream. Life has weird ways of working everyone comes into your life for a reason and sometimes there are things you want to do in life but meeting that person puts a spanner in the works… No one should ever stop you from doing the things you want to in life but at the same time sometimes the plan changes. Whether it be to include them or maybe it’s a slight alteration of the original plan to meet halfway try and understand each other and keep an open mind. It’s not easy but eventually it might all be worth it. If you’re putting in all the effort you possibly can in your job and you feel as though you’re not going anywhere it might be time to re-evaluate your career path. Nothing in life is forever and nothing is stopping you from starting a new chapter and trying something different. Don’t be afraid of change.
Things you should remember:
- You shouldn’t ever be someone’s second choice.
- Change isn’t bad.
- Sometimes you just have to let go to help yourself.
- You are stronger than you think.
- You might not know the reason right now but eventually this will all make sense.
