There have been so many mistakes and failures. There are far too many words that’s been said and it’s too late to go back. But always remember that it’s never too late to move forward. There’s no such thing as the right time, my friend. If we wait for it, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.
I know that you are looking for a sign. We all are. The hardest thing about chasing your dream and living the life that you want is to actually start doing it. Stay at home on a Friday night and put on your best pajamas. Read your book and let yourself imagine all the possibilities and happy endings. Fight with your protagonist and cry over the sad parts. You are as vulnerable and as brave as she is because you too, are a fighter.
Breaking news! This is the sign that you’re looking for. This is the white flower, the man with a red shirt, the rain pouring hard on a perfectly sunny day. This is your name coincidentally engraved in a tree far from home. This is your sign. So go ahead and sign up to to your dream audition. Prepare yourself 7 days a week without any excuses. Then if you passed, treat yourself with a pizza delivery and a can of your favorite beverage and own the night. If you failed, realize that this is a challenge. And a challenge means that there’s something better in store for you. After all, there’s always a rainbow after the rain.
Don’t wait for next week, next month, or next year. Go ahead and get your paper and pen and and make a list of your grocery items. Omit all the foods with preservatives, it will rot your brain little by little. One of the keys to living a good and better life is to not settle for crappy foods. Take time to put on your Sunday best dress and visit the weekend market. You’ll be surprise to know that you can buy the most fresh berries there. And that there actually a flower called Roselle from the Hibiscus family that’s great for tea. I assure you, it will make you smile.
Make a sanctuary out of your home. Light scented candles and throw a galaxy-themed bath bomb in your bath. Imagine that you are looking at the universe in a whole new angle, and you are lucky to live in such a tiny, tiny planet with all sorts of possibility. Then pour yourself a good drink and indulge with every home apothecary that you have at home. Be familiar with your body and celebrate your flaws. Do every single thing that will make you feel beautiful. Because you are.
My friend, stop looking for a sign. Stop relying on destiny. It doesn’t make the world magical, it makes the world dumb. Give yourself some love and treat yourself once in a while. Do what you’re dying to do when you’re young and able. Believe me, you’ll benefit from it. Don’t listen to any negativity. Most of all, invest in making your inner self stronger and smarter, your intuition sharper and clearer.
Live the best life that you want.
