It’s very emotional when things start to change. You can feel happy, mad, sad, frustrated and at a loss. It’s like when you want to jump into something new and find your direction. You have all these things going on in your head and can’t seem to find which way to go. It’s frustrating and over whelming! Than I start to think, if I could just pin point exactly what it is I have a passion for and devote most my time to; I got it!
I wish it were that easy. When you have obligations and real life stuff to take care of, it’s not just a matter of 1,2,3. Than again it wouldn’t be that easy even if I was single, with barely any bills and a decent amount money. Anything worth trying is going to take change and commitment. It is going to take hard work and dedication. It is going to take trying something new and not holding back to make it to that destination.
I realized that I had to make a decision to jump or be safe. I realized that you either don’t have faith or you do. I realized that you work your but off or you just don’t! I realized that trying something new is an amazing experience, that you take with you in your life. The very thing that you try, just might be what you become for the rest of your life!
Everyone gets to a point in there life, where they question; if they are on the right path to living? I don’t believe anyone is ever born saying they just want to exist in this world. They come from the womb full of life, but than life happens! The moment the body is born it begins to die! As we go through each day we are so consumed by what we have to do versus what we would like to do.
It’s hard trying to find out where you are going with your life and if it is fulfilling you as would hope. Than you start to wonder if you are actually taking action on these things that run through your mind. We all get caught up in having to pay bills, living pay check to pay check, providing for the ones we love and being over burdened by the other things that happen to us in this world. We start to lose ourselves and we start to lose our passion for living.
This is the moment we have to stop, breathe and whoo saw. Life is too short to just exist. You have to live every day like it is your last. If you went to the doctor today and he said, ” I’m sorry but you only have 3 months to live?” what would you do then? There is a way to live and still take care of your priorities. We don’t know where time is going to take us or what could happen tomorrow, but we can control today! Stop to think about how you can change your life so you are LIVING AND NOT EXISTING! Make the decision today THAT THE ONLY REGRETS YOU WANT TO HAVE, ARE THOSE THAT YOU CAN FORGIVE AND RE-LIVE! WILL YOU LIVE OR EXIST?
Every day you will be challenged and question who you are and where your life is going. You can not let this stop you from fulfilling your goals. “The Saddest thing in life is a waste of talent.” -Robert Deniro or better yet I say, “The saddest thing in life is a waste of life.” -Iriana Monique.
This is the way I look at it, is that you only have one life to live. The choices you make from the day your born and until the day you die will mold you into who you are, what you are and what you will leave behind. That’s right what you will leave behind. You were born to leave behind a legacy no matter how big or small. You were created to inspire and change someone’s life. You don’t have to be Famous or a Historic Figure. You are who you were created to be; with the mission that God gave you. So know this every second of everyday.
Know your worth in everything you do. Don’t let anything or anyone make you feel less. We were created for grand amazing things to be done by our will power. If you put your mind to it and work really hard you can reach your dreams and goals. It is when we sit there and keep doubting ourselves and not doing anything to keep pushing forward. You don’t want to look back on your life and say, ” I wish I would of done more!” You have time to go after these things now! I don’t care how old you are or that you think you ran out of time. As you walk this earth, make sure that you know your self worth and that you are living; rather than existing. You are Worthy!!
