I think of my life before college. All the signs that pointed to my success. My grades, my affirmation, my ability to excel at anything and everything and nothing at all.
These are the moments when you will get to know who you really are.
Some days, the world will seem too large for you to be able to find where you belong
Stop worrying about being lost. Stop worrying about your next destination. Stop worrying about your next job or your next relationship or your next promotion.
We are all lost souls who are trying to find the right path.
This isn’t the life we deserve at all. We weren’t meant to be so scared of failure. To be so frightened of falling. We weren’t meant to live a life full of unchecked boxes. We weren’t meant to concentrate so much on what we are doing wrong, instead of what we are doing that’s right.
When I stop calling your name, when I stop praying, please don’t hate me for it, find ways to bring me closer to you again softly and gently.
You’ve already amounted to your full potential in that area and it’s time you move on. Congratulations.
You were carefully crafted and collected into the person that you are today. You are full of life, even if you don’t realize it. You are full of light, even if you don’t see it yet. And my dear, you are the most beautiful light that ever existed. So please, know that you were made to fly instead of fall. You were made to bloom instead of wilt. And you were made to shine, not to shrink.
During the best period of my life, what was going right for me?
