It’s Time To Make Life Happen Again

Be honest with me. Are you happy? Or are you just going through the motions?

It’s so easy to get caught up in life, to settle for a predictable, normal routine every single day. You wake up, work, go home, sleep, and do it all over again. There’s nothing wrong with that, mind you. But have you ever longed for more excitement, passion, fire? Do you miss the thrill of new beginnings? Don’t you want the chance to get to know a part of yourself you didn’t even know existed?

What’s holding you back?

See, you weren’t meant to just ride through life, holding on to whatever discarded piece of memory you can get. You are and will always be meant for so much more.

Don’t allow your light to dim out. You live in such a big, beautiful world. Don’t limit yourself. If you feel that something’s missing, do something about it. Leap out of that box you jailed yourself in. Go on and get out there. Move to a different city; reinvent yourself. Allow yourself to make choices again, to trip again, to fail and to live again.

Fill your heart with what makes you feel alive. It’s never too late to wipe the slate clean, to start over and become who you want to be. Don’t be afraid to take charge of your life. The most difficult choices we make eventually end up making our lives much more colorful, don’t they?

Be stubborn, be bold, stick out like a sore thumb and let your voice be heard. Life waits for no one. You can’t continue to let yourself be defeated. If you want something, go for it, even if it’s just as simple as a night out to drink champagne under the stars. No dream is too small. If it makes you happy, then it’s worth a shot. Do it now while you still can.

Regrets don’t make a beautiful life, and if you don’t move now, regrets are all you’re going to have.

So tonight, let the moonlight shine on the shadows of your heart. Look up at the stars and see the infinite possibilities that lay before you. Close your eyes and fly away with your dreams. Feel the wind on your face; let your hair dance with every turn. Make life happen again and finally let yourself be who you were meant to be.
