There’s someone out in the world who dreams of a life like yours, a job like yours, a relationship like yours, a place to live like yours. There’s someone out in the world who dreams of less than what you have, to be happy and comfortable. Look around. Do you appreciate the things you have, the connections you have and the opportunities you have? Do you make the most of them? Or do you take them for granted or let them slip by? Do you always focus on the next big thing or what you don’t have? There’s so much we need to be more grateful for. Because someone out there is fighting for those things.
It’s time to take control of your life. Time won’t stop ticking on. People won’t stop opening their mouths. The world won’t stop to hand everything to you. We have to dream and pursue and work and keep going. There’s no one else who can live your life for you, whether you think they do or think they can. You’re in the driver’s seat. It’s time to put your hands on the wheel.
We do not know how much time we have to live. We do not know how much of that time will be rewarding and how much will be taxing. But don’t let that stop you. Don’t let that hold you back from what brings you happiness and fulfilment. Don’t give up. Keep dreaming, keep pursuing, keep living. Live against the odds.
You can turn your life around. You may think you can’t, but that’s just because you don’t believe in yourself. No matter what trouble you’ve found yourself in, no matter what circumstances you’ve been put in, no matter how far you are from your idea of a happier life, you can turn your life around. It takes courage, perseverance, positivity and faith, but those are all tools you’ve already got stored on the shelf. Life has no manual, so just start using them. If you can dream it, you can do it.
