You’ll never have to look back and ask what if when you look forward and ask why not.
They looked at me and said i don’t know who you are anymore I smiled and replied I may not be who you want me to be but trust me I am exactly who I should be.
Yes, it’s true that when you look at me, you may see fear, you may see worry, you may see stress, you may even see me cry, but those emotions are part of what it means to be human. And I am, after all, only human. As a human, I am not ashamed of those emotions because I have learned that sometimes it is necessary to shatter the present to build a stronger tomorrow.
The importance of knowing your past is rooted in the ability to control the narrative and define yourself. When you make no effort to educate and learn your history, you allow others to define who you were, characterize who you are, and limit who you can be. Know who you are and embrace what you can be.
We long for the vision of the bright, beautiful flower gleaming in the sunlight. But before the flower can gleam, the skies must darken; the rain must fall so that it can grow and burst through the ground. Be patient; good things are growing for us at this very moment, even if we can’t see them.
We can not walk backwards in time; life is inherently a series of small steps forward and with each step forward, we create memories, some good, some bad, many nondescript. But what so many of us miss is that it’s not the memories but what we do with them that define us. Why? Because no matter what the memory is, it becomes a permanent part of who we are and influences our next step. So embrace your memories because the future is not written, but it is a road of endless possibilities; it’s up to you to seize them.
Life is for the bold, for those unafraid to close their eyes and take a leap with the faith that they will land in success. Sure, you can go through life playing it safe, never taking the risk to reach for that dream that would make you truly happy. But that’s not living; that’s simply existing and make no mistake from the moment you were old enough to decide if you want to live or just exist, society has been conditioning you to believe that refusing to take a risk, never reaching for your dreams and playing it safe is the right thing to do. But ask yourself, when you’re old and thinking back on your life do you want to wonder what could have been if only you had taken that leap.
Embrace every second of every day because the next second is not promised.
Never let anyone or anything stop you from reaching for and achieving your dreams every second of every day. Let no one other than yourself say what you can or can’t do, what your limits are. Only you can control your destiny.
Embrace those you love every second of every day. You should never take those you love for granted and assume that they will always be there. You should never be afraid to love someone because others say you shouldn’t. Your love is from your is yours, and it is from your heart; embrace it and act on it.
Be thankful for what you have every second of every day while striving for more. Never let someone belittle you based on material goods or economic status. It is who you are, not what you have, that defines who you are as a person.
To embrace every second of every day is to embrace happiness
Make no mistake; there is no fate but the one you make for yourself because the funny thing about “fate” is the direction it takes you in is often directly correlated to your belief in yourself.
The road to greatness is a journey traveled by those of us who believe we were born to stand apart from the masses.
Those of us who recognize that the potential of greatness is within all of us but is only unleashed by those of us who do not fear the unknown.
Those of us who are unafraid to reach for what others say is impossible.
Those of us who understand that limits are merely artificial constraints created by the few to hinder the potential of the many.
Those of us who refuse to give up the colorful dreams of our childhood in favor of the colorless existence society tries to limit us to. Those of us who have an unwavering belief in ourselves and what we can accomplish.
Join us and take that step off the road of the ordinary and know you will fly, no soar with the eagles above the clouds to the road to greatness.
