A Fresh Start: Advice on Life and more!
Everyone needs a break-through. It’s a reminder that life isn’t perfect. It doesn’t needs to be perfect, and with each passing year we need something new, something fresh, new beginnings, new grace, forgiveness and a blank slate. You need to search for your soul. Know where your heart is, what you love doing the most. Can you turn it into your profession? Is it worth stressing out for? Or do you think you can make it work no matter what?
Curate your thoughts. It’s important to know if what you are doing now is what you want to do the rest of your life. Are you anywhere close to where you want to see yourself later in life? Has it ever happened you wished you were doing something else? If yes, you should follow your guts. Be kind to yourself, don’t let negativity stress you out. Be uplifting and encouraging to yourself. Always be ready to extend forgiveness to yourself.
Instead of a bit of progression in a million directions, focus your strength on one thing at a time. Work well, not hard. Sometimes the most important thing to do is to just stop and breath. You have one life to be the best version of yourself, be you. I know it’s not easy but it’s worth.
You need to support yourself more than anyone would. You have to be your own support system. There will be highs and lows and that is the exactly what life is supposed to be. Watching the sunset or partying at a pub all night, it should all start from what you want in life. Be appreciative of what others do for you, be it your family, friends or anyone for that matter. Being appreciative of all the people in your life.
You certainly don’t have to and you can’t be everything to everyone. Don’t get “more” things done, get the “right” things done! Do something that makes your soul happy; for me, going to a beach, watching the sunset, going for a long walk in the middle of no-where and just soaking in the nature makes me alive.
Unplug from your phone for a day and do something that doesn’t require you to go on any kind of electronic device. I love reading, or going for a swim, it is such a great way to detach from social media that you can really get sucked into. It is a way you connect with people in and around you, and appreciate each other.
Don’t forget the simple things in life just because you get too busy chasing your dreams. And don’t forget you can’t move forward if you keep holding back — LET GO! You are a conqueror and you can do anything you set your mind to.
I have learned that we can’t slow life down, but we can slow ourselves down. And one of the things I have learned from experience is that life goes so fast, that trying to catch up with it, we forget that it’s okay to STOP and take a breath. Being busy is a choice, stress is a choice, joy is a choice, but being YOU is the most important choice you have to make!
I left my full-time job to do what I truly believe in. And trust me there will be times when you won’t even know how to pay your bills but in the end everything will be worth it! I am still figuring out and still discovering new things about myself and what I want in life every single day. It’s a process, a journey, a way of keeping doing what you love and be grateful for all you have!
