I think that there comes a point in which you can’t keep living your life aimlessly hoping that someone you have given everything to will suddenly decide to change their mind and begin to want you or want to be a part of your life. You have to live life for YOU, trying everyday to find your passion and when you find it, falling in love with it. I think then that’s when life chooses to fall into place. I innately have this urge to want to help people however there is a fine line between helping people and letting them take advantage of you.
I truly believe that anyone can do anything they put their mind to, it’s all about setting the goal and making steps everyday towards that goal. I think too many times we get in a funk in which we just feel so stuck in the stagnant waters of disappointment, failure, and let downs; however it doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe it’s finding that someone that makes you realize your potential, and quite possibly in their own way. At a young age, I think that we’re constantly looking ahead when every now and then we need to especially live in the now. I think that involves going outside everyday with a grateful heart, realizing how incredibly lucky we are to be alive. Whether the weather outside is a beautiful clear sky day, with a mild breeze that gently cools you in the heat of the sun.. or whether it’s a stormy day where all you want to do is curl up with a good book or movie and a warming cup of tea.. be grateful. One of the most beautiful things about this life is being able to turn to someone you care about and tell them that you love them, or how much you appreciate them. It’s the little things like that, that make the biggest impact.
I find myself everyday taking things for granted. I can’t say that I can live everyday without regrets, because let’s face it, who doesn’t wish they could magically go back in time and change something? That’s not the point, the point is to truly live each day to its fullest so you can therefore eliminate all chances of regret. So at the end of it all you can truly say that you lived.
“Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusal.” -Ernest Hemingway
