Fear has a funny way of convincing you that it is acceptable to live with it, that you need it, that it is a part of you. It persuades you to believe that it is protecting you and therefore, you cannot and should not let it go.
Thank you for teaching me that I am worth something.
WHAT IS A 401K AND WHY DO I NEED IT? Because honestly, why wouldn’t I rather have more money in my paycheck every two weeks? HELP ME UNDERSTAND.
I am growing up. Just not by everyone else’s standards.
At one point after I returned home, it seemed to me that whichever path I decided to follow now would decide my fate and last my entire lifetime. I was stressed out, plagued by indecision, and felt stretched in 100 different directions with no center.
People tend to be pretty self-absorbed, which means that a) you shouldn’t put all your faith in them and b) you don’t have to worry so much about what other people think of you.
I hear very often that to love is a choice, and in many ways I believe that. But it takes an immense amount of strength to wake up every morning and choose something that you might not feel in your heart is right. In this case you have two paths: to hold on or to let go.
Figure out who you are when you’re on your own. So when someone does come around, you can form a completely new world together, instead of simply falling into theirs.
Pay attention to the little things your body is able to do that you always take for granted – walking, stretching, hearing, seeing, being able to feed yourself. The more you pay attention, the more you’ll realize these are not little things at all.
What is your purpose? Intentions are awesome because they set goals for the day. Intentions can be as big as a new years resolution or a simple morning thought. With all the clutter around us, setting a simple intention can help us focus on what really matters to us and therefore, how we put our energy into the world.
