I Hope You Have The Courage To Go After What You Really Want In Life...
"Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows." -Michael Landon
As I've gotten older, I've learned one thing for certain- life goes by too damn fast. But what's more, it's true what they: We hardly ever appreciate a moment until it's gone and it becomes a distant memory. That I can tell you forsure.
I think each and every one us can recall a time or two, where we didn't have the courage and tenacity to go after something that we really wanted to in life. Whether it was that special someone we always wanted to ask out on a date, that business idea we always wanted to pursue, or perhaps even just an experience we always wanted to have... Fear always seems to show up right on time and unannounced, every single step of the way.
I've learned however, that although fear may always be a passenger in the backseat of my journey, that doesn't mean however, that it has to take the front wheel. Although our fear and our passion are oftentimes intertwined, that doesn't mean that we have to let our fear consume our passion, and most of all, consume our love for life and the process of it all unfolding.
It's so easy to compare ourselves to others nowadays. We are just a scroll or swipe away from their social media profile telling us what their up to, and immediately, we compare our journey to theirs. But social media as we know, happens to be one big facade of presenting ourselves to others in the best way possible. Showing only the positive and uplifting sides, but never the bad and humiliating sides, that are also a part of us.
But I need you -the reader- to know that within you, is the courage and perseverance to let your passion and purpose shine through.
No matter what is happening around you and no matter who you may be subconsciously or consciously comparing yourself too... You have the spirit, the bravery and the relentless energy to go after what you truly want to in life. Why? Because it will be damn worth it in the end, no matter what happens when you let yourself go after your deepest desires.
You may face tons of struggles and challenges along the way. Times when you'll inherently question yourself, who you are, and all that you're doing. But I need you to know, that life is just too damn short not to go after all the things that make you feel the most alive.
Because no matter how impossible or how unlikely the odds may seem- no matter how large the odds may be stacked up against you- dreams all begin in your imagination. In the place where a vision is made and manifested, into a loving world of your very own creation.
So to you, the person that is looking for courage during a difficult time, a rough time, a challenging time, or perhaps a time when you feel like giving up...
Your dreams and goals are important. You owe it to yourself to take a chance on life, or better yet, take a chance on yourself. Because when you believe in yourself and all that you're working towards, the Universe has a funny way of aligning things perfectly in your favour.
As I've gotten older, I've learned that life goes by too damn fast. But as I've gotten older, I've also learned that if we don't go after what we really want to in life, we'll later look back on our lives and regret the decisions that we didn't make. Not the ones that we were brave enough to take.
So take that chance and beat those odds. Because even if it's a one and a million shot to achieve your wildest dreams... You deserve to give this life all that you got. You deserve to live life as fully and as abundantly as you possibly can.
You deserve it. You deserve it all.
