What Screws You Over…
What screws us up most in life is the picture in our heads of what it’s supposed to be.
Wow… Mind. Blown! It’s amazing how much that sentence screams out at me. This quote explains so much. It reminds me of those countless nights where I would just lie there awake. Unable to sleep because I keep thinking about how things didn’t go the way ‘it’s supposed to’. I’m a real firm believer in that whatever happens, happens for a reason and well, when something doesn’t go your way it is so easy to forget how strongly you believe in something.
There is a huge misconception in society (well, there are many but this is one that many don’t realise so many times over) that people dream too much. Dreaming is a good thing and it’s important when it comes to creating goals, however so many people get stuck there. They believe that once you’ve started dreaming about a goal, it’s okay. It’ll probably come true someday, but then they forget that the dream is only meant to inspire you to work towards that. In order to get what you want in life you have to work towards it and you have to work hard and in doing so you have to be able accept that you won’t always do well but that doesn’t matter if you’re enjoying what you’re doing. If you aren’t enjoying what you’re doing then what’s the point in doing it? I mean, life doesn’t wait for anyone. If you spend it doing something that doesn’t make you happy, then are you spending it right? The only way you’ll know is if you actually take a step back and look at how you feel on the inside. If you feel uneasy or uncomfortable then this is probably the time to change that.
Use your dream to keep you motivated but remember to keep yourself in reality to make sure you’re actually following your dreams.
