My sister Kim was here for just over a week. She just graduated college and came to visit. During her visit she was faced with the reality of what her next step would be in life. She is a college graduate and has no idea what she wants to do moving forward. Feeling lost is an unpleasant feeling and finding an answer takes a serious commitment to figuring it out.
It was hard for me to see her in such distress over life decisions. I know that when you look at making the next move in life, you have to be willing to fail at whatever you try. You also must fight against any voices that try to drown out your own thoughts and feelings.
So today this is my thoughts about life and choices:
You always have a choice to be made.
You have the capacity to find something that you love.
When you are unsure of where you are going, don’t stop. Keep moving and don’t take the struggle for granted.
How others see you is not as important as how you see yourself.
Let passion flow free!
Live life so when you get old you never dream about the person you COULD have been.
Dear Kim (and anyone reading this),
Go free pretty girl into the big world of unknown. Embrace what you don’t know and learn to love the life that you do because that life will soon change. You may never understand the meaning to life but don’t let that stop you from searching. Believe me when I say that just when you think you get it, life shakes you up a bit and hands the unknown back to you. Remember that the world we live in is about evolving and adapting to circumstances. You can create an authentic and empowered life but there is no guarantee, just know that power lies within you. Knowledge isn’t about the destination it is about your journey to seek it. When you try to understand yourself it becomes easier to understand because it is only then that you find meaning to your world and your meaning is different from everyone else. It is important that you think outside of the societal norms and question life. Once you see that you don’t have to live by a set of rules you will be able to see where you are headed. Face your fears pretty girl and grow. Every time you push past your fear, your comfort zone grows. Find your joy and listen to your intuition. Most importantly enjoy this moment because you will never have this opportunity again.
I love you beautiful girl. Cherish your life!
