I wish every young adult with big dreams know and understand that there's absolutely no reason for them not to do what they love and not to pursue their dreams. Saying that 'its easier said than done' is the lamest excuse a person can have. You dont even have to succeed on first try but for goodness sake, please actually try. Don't let your dreams just be dreams. They do come true if you are doing something to achieve them. Dont just sit there and say "its easier said than done". You gotta chase them.
How can I move on from Italy when everyday Im reminded of it. Whenever I use olive oil when I cook, whenever I drink my coffee, whenever I grate cheese over my salad.... everything in Italy just taste better. And my commercial olive oil, my instant coffee, my generic branded cheese are all reminders of how sad my life is. Lol! 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cant even eat pasta and pizza now because Im back on diet after my Italy trip. Life is tough! There should be a handbook on: “How to go back on diet after your Italy trip” 😩
Read a book. Discover new flavours. Write a poem even when it only makes sense to you. Take photos. Take videos. Laugh out loud till your stomach hurts. Sing your heart out. Dance in public. Be silly. Learn something new. Talk to strangers. Send your love and good thoughts to the people you randomly meet. Be with nature. Be kind. Be present. Be grateful. Put yourself out there. Dont be scared to be seen. You only have one life to live. Fall inlove with it. ✨
Sometimes when Im traveling with someone, they’d get really annoyed at me for stopping every five seconds and marvel at the most mundane things in the world. They’d wonder why I would take photos of the most ordinary wild cacti growing everywhere, or my appreciation with how the morning light enters the window or the afternoon shadows dancing on the walls, or my endless fascination with the moon, or me stopping and listening to the wonderful music of talented buskers on the street, or me appreciating what seems to be an ordinary front door of somebody else’s house, or when I find old run down abandoned buildings pretty, or how I’d get so easily moved by little acts of generosity and kindness even when its not directed towards me, or how I’d take photos when I see a fat stray cat quietly napping in empty streets... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People say that I romanticize things too much and I look at everything as if they’re part of some poetry. That I look at the world with rose colored glasses and that maybe I read too much books and watch too much movies. I was once told that Im not living in reality, that I still live in a childish dream refusing to let go of my fantasies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Its true that I have a tendency to be such an idealist. But can you really blame me if I dont want to be a cynic? If I dont want to lose my sense of wonder? If I dont ever want to stop believing that there is good in everything? How you preceive the world is a choice and I choose to see the beauty even in the ordinary. So I will never get tired of pointing out at how beautiful the moon is, even when its always been there every night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As my favorite line in the poem desiderata says: “With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a good Sunday!
I hope tomorrow morning when you wake up, you will see the Light in everything. And not only in the sunrise, but in the places that are harder to find, like in the hallways where you are certain you are only passing time, and the gritty gold dust that floats between the floor and the blinds, and every little thing that catches your eye, I hope tomorrow morning when you wake up, you will see the Light in everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Morgan Harper Nichols-
For the longest time, Ive been mulling over my life path, my true calling, my personal legend. Im grateful and happy for where I am in my life right now, but I know that I haven’t reached my full potential yet. I know that there’s more to life than spending the next years paying bills and traveling occasionally. There’s gotta be more to life than that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ive been trying to figure out: “What is it that I really want to do?” and somehow I cant have a definite answer to this question. There are many things that I want to do but there are also so many things to consider, like which one is the most practical, which one can I actually earn from, which one am I skilled at, how do I transition when I have no experience in that field, how do I start all over again?! I dont know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I realized now that the reason why I cant find the answers is because Ive been asking the wrong questions. Life is not about “what you want to do but rather who you want to be.” This change of perspective really gave me clarity. It doesnt matter what you do, what matters is who you are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to be someone who sees the good in everything. I want to be someone who can inspire and encourage action from others. I want to be authentic, kind, loving and compassionate. I want to be awake, conscious and connected to my own soul. I want to be the person that God wants me to be. And that’s what I’ll strive for because that takes a lot of hardwork. I am a work in progress.
One thing I learned about manifesting your dreams is that, you dont have to obsess over it. Obsessing about achieving your goals (career, finances, relationship, etc) will only lead to frustrations and that’s a negative energy that you dont want to send out to the universe because whatever you put out there will be manifested back. Say your intentions, let it go and have a rock solid faith that it will happen not necessarily immediately but eventually. And when it finally happens, always take a moment to recognize and be grateful for it. Having the ability to recognize Grace allows you to live a life full of gratitude and happiness. So go dream. Dream big. Have faith. Be patient. Recognize it when it arrives and be grateful for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy New Moon! Dont forget to set those intentions! 🌑
