sometimes you gotta slam on the brakes and throw everything in reverse because your life depends on it.
because it is extremely important never to lose sight of who your are in your heart as well as your mind. to find that balance and be the happiest, most considerate, greatest version of yourself that you can be.
be optimistic, be courageous, be everything you’re afraid to be. break out of your shell and say what you want to say, tell people what you want to tell them, do the things you want to do. find that inspiration and motivation you desperately crave. most of all, don’t forget about the people who have helped you along the way.
okay, yes, i am just kind of venting at myself for being an idiot in the last however long it’s been. but the thing is, this message can apply to anybody. not just me.
there are so many possibilities, so many opportunities, so many experiences that get missed out on everyday. for what reason? being too busy, too lazy, too preoccupied, too depressed, too tired? none of those are valid excuses. there is a whole world out there waiting for you to leave your impression!
okay. so what has me so happy and pumped up right now?
today i’ve been exploring new artists that i don’t typically listen to. of course, whilst doing so, i’ve fallen in love with a new artist/band.
their lyrics speak to me in a rare way that makes me smile, for example:
I’m just a believer
That things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don’t wanna let it
but it’s not just that one song, it’s all of them. i just feel unstoppable and happy. i have felt like this all day, well the last few days really. maybe it’s the warm weather, maybe it’s the music, maybe it’s the sage smudging i did this week, or maybe it’s my depression finally going away again. in reality, it’s probably a huge mix of all of those on top of the way i’ve finally made peace and am in acceptance of the loss of my best friend- my poor baby Tobi is resting peacefully, and i know that. it was hard to accept but i’ve brought myself to do so.
life is a series of choices and decisions, those choices and decisions all have consequences. some are good, some are bad, some can be heart breaking, but some can make you happier than you’ve ever been- but the trick of it is that they are all unpredictable… and that’s life. it is a mystery, and you never know what will happen until you try.
so get out there and live your life, i know i’m going to start.

I say if you don’t know then you go slow or you don’t go don’t be a no show just let go.
