8 Things To Remember In Following Your Dreams

‘TO BE YOUR LIGHT’

     I don’t want to be someone who just brightens your daily life. That’s too easy and that’s too common. A lot of things can do that for you―music, arts, sceneries, pets…you name it all. Instead, I want to be the light that you seek out when everything else seems dark. Not that I want you to rely on me as your foundation—it’s not healthy. But it’s because I want you to believe that voids aren’t permanent. There’s always hope. And if being your light is what it takes to make you believe that there is hope, then I’m ready to be yours.

“At the End of the Day”

At the End of the Day Collage by Naro Pinosa (prose)

At the end of the day, it will always be about the relationships you have made with people that will matter. No matter how great you have succeeded in other areas of your life, you will still feel hollow because it is not what you are ultimately designed to be. You are not just created to have some goals and reach them by doing everything you can. You are not just created to go to school, graduate, find a job and then make a living- all merely to survive in this world. But you are ultimately created to love. Don’t forget about that.

#JustLive

 

#JustLive.jpg

Those who never knew who I was before have nothing even the slightest idea of how seriously I treated things or my life in general. But if given the chance to go back in the past, I won’t change anything. Being that kind of girl with a firm heart brought me glorious things in my life that I’ll forever be in gratitude with. But the thing is, I think I grew up too fast- add the other experiences to which I have no choice to be tough and be strong and be mature- not just for me, but for my mother and siblings. Oftentimes, life really gives us something that we can’t escape, but we just have to accept and move forward. But I think, all is well know. And today I have this change in my outlook that people in my past will be surprised with. I’m enjoying every second, every blink. I’m trying to live one day at a time. I’m not trying to catch up on something. I’m trying to get some time to just unwind that I haven’t done before. These don’t mean that the things I did before were wrong. Maybe it’s just how my story was written. But you know, today I’m just gonna breathe and just live.

Is it a joke we ask ourselves
The life we live, it makes no sense
Are we being played?
And why it’s like we’re predestined to lose?
Stuck in a haze, unable to move.

‘Just Fine’

31e4a12b902bcc3c2b62dd981da90c46.jpg

Hey there! Yes, you.

Just wanna remind you that you’re allowed to be messy and complicated.

Take your time.

You need not to rush.

Grow in your own pace, for yourself and for the people you love.

Celebrate all the ringing questions in your head. Even if they make you dizzy and confused, they are part of one’s life.

Celebrate the times you don’t know what to do with your life, or the moments when you think you’re being left behind. Chances are you’re really not, but if you really are, I know you can catch up.

I know you have done a lot of terrible things that’s why it’s so hard for you to see your greatness. So, let me pat your shoulder for a while and say “YOU ARE DOING JUST FINE.”
