Sometimes we find it hard to set boundaries. We fall into bad patterns, succumb to bad habits, and end up blurring the lines. Sometimes we let our work lives encroach on our home lives. Sometimes we let our lack of confidence erase our record of successes. Sometimes we let people walk over us when we should be kicking them out our lives. But remember to keep maintaining those boundaries. They are what will keep us on the right track to happiness, what we want and what we deserve.

Quote of the day.
In life, we end up spending too much time trying to connect the dots plotted out for us. Instead, we should be brave enough to draw outside the predetermined lines. For many of us, progress, happiness and success fall outside those lines. So don’t be afraid to get a little messy, roam with no set destination, or go off on a tangent. Trust your instincts and trust your heart. When we finally learn that there are no lines that bind us, we finally see that happiness, success and progress are not found along them, but beyond them.
Every day is full of possibilities. Possibilities to push boundaries, to unleash potential, to go harder than ever before. Possibilities can turn into realities. Every day has ‘watch this space’ written all over it. Every day can be better than the next. Today is the only way we’ll change the game. Today is all we have. Start writing, painting, singing, building, doing, being. Make today a space to watch.
We all have an endless supply of blank spaces to fill. Spaces to shape who we are. Spaces to discover and explore. Spaces to learn and think. Spaces to try and fall and try again. Spaces to imagine and build. We all have endless opportunities, possibilities, and fates. We’re not stuck on one road or labelled as one person. We can be whoever we want to be, do whatever we want to do, and more. Let’s not limit ourselves. Let’s let go. Let’s make the most of it. Dwell in possibility and fill those blank spaces.
Nothing’s too crazy. Nothing’s too unrealistic. Nothing’s too absurd. Not if you don’t think so. Those limits, those boundaries, those obstacles, those fears, those excuses, those expectations. They’re all in your head. If we never try the impossible, we never have a chance to show it’s possibility. We are all human. We are all dreamers. And we are all creators. Believe in your own ideas and your own imagination. Reality will always be created by those who seize the opportunity to build and add to it. Create your own world. You can do it as good as the next person.
When we let go, we free ourselves. When we let go of expectations, we free ourselves of disappointment. When we let go of what people think, we free ourselves of boundaries and limitations. When we let go of our fear of failing, we open ourselves up to memorable and life changing experiences. When we let go of unhealthy relationships, we open ourselves up to self-worth and self-love. Let go of the anchor tying you down to the seabed, and float to the surface. Don’t live in reflections and darkness, but soak up the light and breathe in that fresh gulp of air.
