I was recently texting a close friend of mine and I got the text saying ‘I’ve accepted my fate, it’s okay.’ To context it we were talking about how although we’ve studied we’re still not going to do well on our final exams and as I read this I was stuck, I agreed and yet I did not.
I do not agree with just accepting things.
I do not agree with not trying any more or giving up.
As humans, we accept the things we think we deserve (yes that is part of a quote from the perks of being a wallflower) but it’s true, its apart of the few things that make up the human condition. You can be the most ambitious person in the world but after failing a few times you start to accept what lower than what you want.
That is not okay.
If you have a dream, an ambition, a goal; if you truly want something you will work day in, day out until you get it.
I understand, it gets tiring, you need a break and when you do take that break you feel like you never want to get up again. You’re preaching to the choir here.
Do not get stuck.
Do not stop dreaming.
Do not become the person you do not want to be.
Get out, get moving, travel, explore, get a new job, read a new book, move out of home, make a new friend. Just do something, get your mojo back.
This is your time, don’t lose it.
Find the things that are so beautiful that it hurts.
Become the person you would ideally fall in love with.
Get up early and watch the sunrise or stay in bed until dinner, do what ever makes you content with yourself.
Write a journal, write a blog, take photos of the things you love and take photos of the things you hate.
Love endlessly and hate minimally.
Do not give up, do not accept things, do not become someone you don’t like. Because at the end of the day, the only thing we can be content with is that we’ve lived our lives how we wanted to, achieved our dreams, ignored the things that made us sad, and loved and been loved.
