Don’t think you’re good enough? You deserve happiness and love, success and prosperity, peace and comfort. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, least of all yourself. Grow stronger through the challenges you face and grow wiser by navigating through the darkness. Love yourself and treat yourself as you would others. Encourage yourself and congratulate yourself as you would others. You are enough, no less than anyone else.
Allow yourself to wish for what you want. It may seem out of reach, but you are more than capable of pulling it down from the sky. Don’t keep telling yourself you won’t make it. Don’t keep telling yourself you don’t deserve it. We can only have the life we want if we dare to go for it, if we believe we can do it, and if we persevere. Stop holding yourself back. The world won’t hand it to you.
Relationships and friendships aren’t always ships that sail smoothly. Sometimes we’re taken for granted. Sometimes we’re treated poorly. Sometimes we’re barred from being ourselves. Sometimes people pour their negativity onto us. Done consistently, it can take a toll on us. It drains our happiness, shreds our confidence and strips away our positivity and faith in the world. Sometimes we have to let those people go. Because we deserve better. We deserve people who give as much as they take. We deserve people who appreciate us in both their good and bad times and who are there for us in our good and bad times. Sometimes we have to let people go in order to welcome others.
We might wake up one day and wonder how we ended up where we are. We might think about where we could have been. Sometimes we got busy. Other times we got complacent. And sometimes there isn’t a perfect medium. But we always have to do what we love, what we deserve and what’s best for us. That sometimes requires hard work. That sometimes means taking it easy. Sometimes we make mistakes and sometimes we have regrets. But no path is necessarily better than another. So instead of wondering about how we ended up where we are or thinking about where we could have ended up being, let’s focus on what we do have: the life ahead, to live as we please.
Be limitless. Because we touch a lot in this world. Spread positivity around like a coin that’s passed on across the world. Express love and kindness to everyone with a simple smile, compliment, gratitude, and support. Explore the corners and pockets of the earth that excite and inspire you. Exude the self love, confidence and worth you deserve.Unleash your mind in a spectrum of colour and ideas.
Don’t limit yourself, what you have to offer and what is open to you. Open yourself and open your eyes.
It’s scary to admit when things aren’t working. Sometimes it’s because we live in hope they will get better soon. Sometimes it’s because we know there will be a long journey ahead of us. Sometimes it’s because we have no idea what the future will hold. It can be hard to let go of something we know without knowing what we’re giving it up for. But we all deserve to be happy. And that is out there somewhere. Happiness is the one thing we cannot give up on. There is more out there than we can imagine or ever know. If we’ve tried our best to make things work and they still don’t, be brave enough to walk away from them and venture into new things. Sometimes we have to subtract when things aren’t adding up. You owe it to yourself to try.
The idea of beginning again or trying again is daunting, overwhelming and disheartening. We’re creatures who find comfort in sticking to the way things are. It’s what we know. But the truth is that not everything we know works to give us our best chance at life. And when things aren’t working, we have to find a way to change them in order to give ourselves that best chance. Sometimes our relationships with other people are restricting or our relationship with ourselves is unhealthy. Sometimes our environment weighs us down or our day to day life doesn’t inspire us. Sometimes what we desperately hope will work won’t. And this is when we should tell ourselves that it’s ok to turn over a new leaf, whether it’s to plunge into the unknown or take a little dip. Because we all deserve our best chance at life. And we’re the ones who bestow that gift to ourselves. Don’t hide it away.
