Simply be you. Be who you really are. That seems like the easiest way to live life. Follow your heart even if you have doubts. Quiet your mind and listen to what your heart is telling you. Be a little weird and don’t think about what others may think of you. Love yourself in every being, every inch of your skin. Stay true to your values and let it guide you. Life is about finding peace and accepting who you are. So be kind to yourself, even in your weakest of moments. Love yourself the way you love others, you need it too.
In life we tend to usually weigh out the different outcomes to every decision we make and sometimes we let fear dictate our final decision. Especially now with such uncertain times, fear is more present in our daily lives. Your heart will speak through the fear you feel.
When your heart says it’s time to start new, fear will list every bad possibility.
When your heart says it’s time to start a new career, fear will tell you that you’ll fail.
Always follow your heart. Let it overcome your fear.
Your heart will guide you to who you truly are instead of fear spreading darkness and doubt.
You will find what and who are truly meant for you, the rest will just fall into place.
You have nothing to prove. You have nothing to prove during this pandemic. You don’t need to prove that you can handle everything or that you couldn’t. You don’t have to prove who you are. No explanations, no justifications. You can simply just be you, flaws and all. Your true worth will never come from someone else. Just from you. You don’t need anyone’s approval to validate your worth. Just the pureness of your heart and soul is all that is needed.
Find people who make you feel like your at home. Where you can find peace and warmth on the cold days you experience. The people who can be a light when all you see is darkness. Those who encourage you to be yourself no matter what others may think. Find places where you feel peace, where you can explore endlessly. The places where you feel the most alive. Whenever you do find those people and places hold on to them. Never let them go. Appreciate them when they are around. These places and people are worth more than what money can ever buy you. This is where you are meant to be. Home.
Healing seems to always come in waves. One day you’re completely fine and the next day you feel like you’re drowning. You could feel as if your soul is broken into small pieces and even then you still keep going. You try to keep yourself together as much as possible even though you feel as if the pain is fresh. When you lose someone so close to you it feels as if you’re dying too, something inside of you died when they did.
Healing isn’t easy, it is messy. There is no time frame when it comes to healing. I never truly believed that time heals all wounds and pain. Time will give you the opportunity to manage the ache and hurt more effectively. You won’t cry as often or consume your every waking thoughts. You will laugh more and remember what it feels like to smile without faking it. The pain and ache is still there but you continue to learn to live again. There will be times where something will remind you of them and it stops it right in your tracks and you just cry (happened to me just the other day). Grief turns into love. Pain turns into faith.
You have to keep going even if you don’t think you’re able to.
You are truly stronger than you think you are.
We prove it everyday.
Someday you might realize that you’ve been drifting in life and not living. This is the time to rebuild the life you seeked but have yet to obtain. Start getting rid of anything that weighs you down, including people. There is no need to keep let it keep drowning you. Let you heart and soul be lifted. Search for for people and places that bring you happiness and sense of peace. Find new hobbies that enrich your life. Go explore nature, cook new recipes, find a new book. We are all meant to live life to the fullest capacity. Including joy, happiness, and the feeling of always looking forward to tomorrow. Let go of anything that stands in your way.
We have a tendency to overthink about situations in life and even when it comes down to ourselves. It really comes down to this, what we believe about ourselves we will end up becoming. If we spend all of our time in believing that we aren’t good enough or that we will never make it, our future will follow suit. We tend to attract the nervous or negative energy because we second guess ourselves. Whether it comes from what a friend or family member said or what others have accomplished and we haven’t. Instead focus on what we do have. Turn the negative energy into something positive. Everything that seemed impossible slowly changes into being possible.
The dreams you had will start coming true.
Doors that didn’t want to open will begin to unlock.
You have everything at your fingertips, you just have to believe in yourself first.
