It’s okay if you’re a mess, if you’re still ‘figuring it out,’ if your lost or trying to find your way—life isn’t about having it all together, but about moving forward—day by day, step by step.
We have to understand that we’re still discovering parts of ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less whole. We were never, are never incomplete. We are simply evolving.
You should go for it. Don’t give so much power to whatever it is that is holding you back.
My dream became an escape from my dreary daily slump to a nine to five that I’ll never truly thrive in.
But we’re often told to wait
we’re taught to live like hunters –
be patient, and quiet, and still
and that is exactly the problem.
But it was this massive unknown that truly helped me learn just how much potential my own future held. Humans seek comfort in a carefully planned future, so much so that it often limits them to the boundaries they themselves create.
When we start something new we want to be perfect at it….and when we come to meet our own deficiencies we realize the amount of effort the new endeavor will require to master.
Stop talking and start doing. Prove to yourself that you can do more than just state what you want. State what you want and then go for it.
Here’s just to wrong the notion “Don’t do it if you’re having second thoughts.” I say, “Do it if you have enough courage to battle your own thoughts and wisdom to realize that in every decision we make, there’d be a justifiable consequence.”
You can delay ripping that bandaid off… but the fact remains: exposure to change and uncertainty is the only way to grow.
