With a touch of faith, anything becomes possible. Seems too simple to be true. But believing in ourselves, believing in the good of others, believing that things will work out, will do wondrous things to our lives. Faith sparks positivity, determination, problem-solving, which in turn invites happiness and success into our lives. Faith is in endless supply inside us. If you believe you can do anything, you will.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be? I would change its heart. And we can. Keep an open mind. Give people benefit of the doubt. Be kind to people without expecting anything in return. Stand up for people without a voice. Listen to people who need it. Speak to people who are lonely. Love more. Hate less. That’s how we can save the world from being swallowed up in darkness.
Hope to never grow up. Never stop learning. Never stop questioning. Never stop believing. Never stop exploring. Never take life too seriously. Never stay trapped in a life you hate. Never say never. But there’s a certain magic that our young selves see in the world that slowly loses its sparkle as we grow up. Never lose that magic. If you do, life loses its magic too.
The world is your oyster. You have to swim around in the darkness before you stumble upon it. You have to believe in your power to break it open. You have to have faith that you’ll find something inside. But the world is yours – there’s so much possibility, opportunity, potential, choice. Do whatever it takes to create a life you want. Don’t let anything hold you back, especially yourself.
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 can walk through life with our eyes closed. And that might be an easy road to take. But there’s so much more to life than our own thoughts and opinions, our own circumstances and hardships, our own drive and fears. And they’re important. But if we open our eyes a little wider, we see a bit more of the world as it is and how it could be. If we listen a little more, we might hear how others see the world too. We can change our thoughts, our circumstances, our fears. We step closer to realising how we make it better and how we make it worse, and how we can continue to make it better. How much better the world would be if we actually look at it and listen to it with an open mind.
The world isn’t always beautiful. Life isn’t always fair, forgiving or fun. But the world and life are only as beautiful as we make it too. Everything you touch, every person you meet, everything you do affects the world around you. You can make your world beautiful. You can make someone else’s world beautiful. And if we at least try to, even if we cannot all the time, the world will be infinitely more beautiful in spite of its flaws and our flaws. A small gesture, a little passion, a spark of joy can make all the difference.
