I hate when people say they can't predict the future. Obviously that's true, but be careful what you apply it to. When it comes to your own life ultimately you make your future. Your future isn't what life hands you its what you do with it. Your future can be whatever the hell you want it to be.
People need to learn to do what makes them happy, you can choose to blame your current situation on whatever your excuse might be for the moment but no amount of excuses are going to change anything or make you happy.
Every day you should try to do at least one thing to get you closer to your dreams. Nothing is out of reach unless you don't try to achieve it. Your lack of effort is the only thing standing between the person you are and the person you want to be. Your future is being mapped out by every decision you do or do not make. So follow your heart, go where your dreams take you and fall down every once in awhile. Yes, fail at something, because it's only in our failures that we find our strengths.
Take a chance. Apply for that job you don't think you'll get. Ask her/him on a date(yes, the person that just popped in your mind while reading that.) take a trip somewhere new, loss yourself in the things you love. Their is nothing more beautiful then raw passion, find what you love and do that, unapologetically.
Don't let the fear of the unknown stand in your way. And never put something off just because the time it will take, the time will pass anyway.
It's scary, really. To know that you're responsible for your own life. That in 50 years when you look back, if you don't like what you see you really have no one else to blame. So stop being so scared of the "what ifs" because they will always be there, but today's opportunities won't.
Youre the only person that truly knows what you want. You're the only person that can make your future everything you want it to be. So what are you waiting for?
-----I know I know. No one ever takes their own advice. I've been majorly lacking in the motivation department lately. I found some for a little while but it's gone again. So here's what I have to say to those lacking motivation right now...
Sometimes the one thing you do in a day to get you closer to the future you want is just getting out of bed and surviving the day. Everyone has those days, and that's okay. Just don't make it an everyday thing. Remember what you want and keep that in sight. Have a bad day but don't waste it. Recollect and get out there and get shit done the following day. Life's hard sometimes, or rather we make life hard sometimes because we think too much and do too little. So stop over thinking and just get out there. Just outside your bubble of comfort are wonderful opportunities and life experiences.
Till next time, xoxo
