The beautiful thing about life is that you can always change, grow and get better. You aren’t defined by your past.You aren’t your mistakes.
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. Don’t wait for things to get better. Life will always be complicated. Learn to be happy right now, otherwise you’ll run out of time. You don’t need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it’s fun. Because it makes you happy. If you don’t like your story, you have the power to rewrite it.
It may take a month, a year, or a decade. But if you want it bad enough, you’ll make it happen.
It’s not about winning the race always, sometimes it’s all about making it to the finishing line. Always remember the days you prayed for the things you have now. If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough. A life without challenge would be like going to school without lessons to learn. Be strong when you are weak, brave when you are scared, and humble when you are victorious. When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.
Don’t listen to society, because 98% of society is average and poor.
It’s funny how people judge other’s mistakes while they also do the same thing. The worst thing you can do to yourself is judge yourself through the eyes of others. Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them. Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask. This journey is yours, take charge of it. Stop giving other people the power to shape your life. Not every person is going to understand you and that’s okay. They have a right to their opinion and you have every right to ignore it.
In the end, only three things matter; how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
Everybody has gone through something that has changed them in a way that they could never go back to the person they once were. Change is hard at the beginning, messy in the middle, gorgeous at the end. I never knew how strong I was until I had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry, and accept an apology I never received. Show respect even to people who don’t deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours. Do all the good you can, to as many people as you can, as often as you can. Be in love with your life. Every minute of it.
I hope this post was helpful to you. You need to know Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones that don’t. Always try to help someone. You might be the only one that does. Always smile more than you cry, always give more than you take, and always love more than you hate.
Because in the end, what I can truly say is:
Inhale the future. Exhale the past.
