“This is your LIFE. Do what you love and DO IT OFTEN. If you don’t like something, CHANGE IT. If you don’t like your job, QUIT IT. If you don’t; have enough time, STOP WATCHING TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, STOP… They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. STOP OVER ANALYZING, All emotions are beautiful when you eat and APPRECIATE, every last bite. LIFE IS SIMPLE. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things, and people, WE ARE UNITED IN OUR DIFFERENCES. Ask the next person you see, what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. TRAVEL OFTEN; GETTING LOST WILL HELP YOU FIND YOURSELF. Some opportunities only come once you seize them. LIFE IS ABOUT PEOPLE YOU MEET, and the things you create with them. SO GO OUT AND START CREATING. Life is to short. LIVE YOUR DREAM and SHARE YOUR PASSION.”
I think so often we tell ourselves we’re doing fine, we brush things aside, and one day we crack. Something small triggers something so big and we can’t help ourselves. We stumble, we fall, we are proud, we ask for help, and then we hate ourselves for it. But these things sit inside of us, festering, blackening our hearts, and holding back our feelings. This is baggage, and it’s a burden. This is what creeps into our lives, feeds our egos, and obscures our creativity. Hanging onto things that don’t matter, allowing people to make you feel small, living for other people instead of yourself. Don’t lose yourself that is the biggest and hardest lesson you can learn. You are all you have.
Our ego’s get the better of us, instead or reacting the way we as individuals would react, we involuntarily react the way we are expected to. Our ego’s are mere reflections of the world around us, they are not who we are. Little things are going to upset you, if you let them; it is so difficult to tell yourself it’s not important when you are upset. This is the ego; this is the festering of past moments creeping into your life, rearing their heads in your actions.Life is about meeting new people, grabbing opportunities, and LIVING. I am often a victim of myself, allowing my thoughts, my ego to make me feel angry, upset and even unimportant, but I am aware of it. I am wiling to change the way I feel by simply not letting negative thoughts in; you are a victim of your own life.
We forget that this is our life; it is our happiness; if someone isn’t making you feel the way you want to feel, well so be it, move on. People come in and out of our lives at the right time, every time for certain reasons. Don’t force it, don’t tighten your grip just let it be. It should be easy to let go of people who have made you a second option or made you feel unimportant. You will hurt, but don’t let it take control, own it, accept it and move on. The more you learn to beat the darkness, release the baggage, the easier it will become.
