Life is weird.
Our thoughts are weird.
Humans are weird.
We are put onto this planet, go to school, get a job, work – a whole heap of shit happens between – then we die.
As a summary this so bizarre.
And in the hindsight it is such a short amount of time.
In this short amount of time how much emphasis do you put on irrelevant things?
Like wether you have the latest fashion, how much you weigh, what people thing of you, stressing about things out of your control or stressing about made up scenarios in your head?
And in this short amount of time how much emphases do you put on ‘I wish’ rather then being grateful for the things you have?
Saying, “I wish I looked like that” rather then being grateful for being alive at all.
“I wish I had more money” when you could be appreciating the roof over your head.
I’m guilty of this, I think we all are – it is so easy to get caught up in it all – the trends, the hype, the highlight reels, the guilt, the “I wish” way of thinking or stressing.
In this short amount of time we have on this big ‘ol Earth shouldn’t we spend it striving to make a real positive impact rather then keeping up with the Jones?
We have the power to follow our passions, be our true self – yet it is so easy to settle for what we think we deserve in life rather then going out and getting what we actually deserve because the fear of failing and the fear of what people may think hold us back.
These two fears are made up scenarios in our mind.
Think of it this way, if you were to die tomorrow would you be completely content with what you have achieved?
And with that in mind remember this is your life. If you answered no to the above you are the only person who can change that, what is holding you back??
Reality? Or your false beliefs?
Now imagine a life where you didn’t stress about what people thought of you, you were just your true self and had absolutely no fear of failing – what would happen?
It’s scary right – you know they would judge you – but the funny thing is they wouldn’t.
We get so anxious all the time about what people will think, how they will react and what they will do that we supress out own feelings and emotions as it just seems easier and we gain acceptance.
We literally change who we to impress others.
Yet I feel like if you have to supress and hide your true self because you are afraid of what people will think you are hanging out with the wrong people.
Think about the way you act in front of your Mum – that’s the real you.
Would it be so bad if that’s what the world saw?
Hell no because we are all the f*cking same, we all struggle, we all experience bad, we all do weird shit, we all cry, we all get hurt and we all go through the rat race.
Life isn’t perfect and we don’t need to make it out to be – act human, be yourself, stop and address the made up thoughts in your head that are holding you back, appreciate what you have and always strive for what you truly deserve because life is short and you don’t want to leave with any regrets.
What can you change right now to impact your life in a positive way?
Stay Strong & Stretch,
