Every experience we have in life leads us to our future. Every nock back, heart break and opportunity shapes the people that we are. The most important thing we can do is continue to learn and grow. Learn from the things that don’t bring out the best in you and grow into the person you dream you want to be.
I guess the thing I want you to remember is your previous relationships don’t signify the love you deserve. The job you are doing isn’t always what you are destined to do. The frustration and pain you’re feeling won’t last forever. Take the anguish and turn it into something that you are proud of. You don’t need to give yourself to someone else. You don’t need to fight to stay relevant in someone else’s life. You are enough just the way you are. If people can’t appreciate you for who you are, the way that you are then they don’t deserve you. It’s one of the hardest things in life but sometimes you just gave to walk away. Hold your head high and admit that for what ever reason this wasn’t right. If someone doesn’t love you it doesn’t mean you won’t ever find love again. It means you need to learn to love yourself. Love the squishy bits, the wrinkles, love your heart even when it feels broken.
People will say things they don’t really mean and you will think about those things everyday for the rest of your life. Try not to worry about those words. Try not to reminisce the good times. They are great memories but remember the memories are just that. A fond moment in time that has passed. The most exciting thing is that more fond moments will happen. The fond moments will come when you least expect them to. New opportunities, new excitement the ability to love life and live it to the fullest.
Life isn’t about love, life isn’t about a career, friendships, travel or money life is about getting shit done. Life is about making the most of every opportunity you have. Life is about loving unconditionally, working hard, enjoying the simple things, exploring places you have never been. Life is about the adventure but most importantly it’s about balance. You can’t spend too much of your time focusing on one aspect of life. You need to ensure that all aspects of your life are working together in unison so you feel a sense of accomplishment. When you feel you are making progress you will feel happy. When you feel happy you’re more inclined to love yourself. Sometimes you just need to take a moment to remember the positive influences in your life. If you’re struggling to think of the good things that’s ok. I want you to close your eyes and listen to the song below. I want you to remember in this life there is nobody who can love you better than you can love yourself. Nobody knows you like you do. Yes you will allow people to become close but your eyes have witnessed what you soul has endured. Your ears have heard the harsh words spoken. Your hands have felt the warmth of another human. Your experiences are unique to you. This life is yours. An experience waiting to be explored.
