4 truths that could help YOU unapologetically live!
“If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.” – Steve Jobs
I have a message for you today. A message I hope inspires you and sparks an insatiable desire in you for a positive change.
Do you feel stagnant?
Does it seem next to impossible to achieve your dreams with each passing day?
Do negative thoughts invade your mind constantly?
Yes, you wake up every morning and struggle to get out of bed.
Yes, your mind constantly tells you that you cannot make it. It reminds you of the negative things friends and family have said and done to you.
Yes, life has not been a piece of cake.
But it is time to wake up, live and go for what you want. It is time to break loose. It is time to experience life and the good things it has to offer. It is time for a change.
Who died and made people and negative thoughts the judge and jury over your life? Absolutely no one!
And that is why you need to wake up and realise that:
You alone have the power to say enough is enough.
You alone have the power to take that key and unlock the chains that have bound you for so long.
You alone have the power to see you for who you truly are: a beautiful fighter, a fearless conqueror, a mighty warrior.
Unleash that lion (or lioness) in you and become who you so passionately want to be.
No one has the right to write the pages of your book for you (unless you give people the permission to do so by giving them the pen and dictating to them what to write). And if the pen or book (or both) was snatched aggressively from your hand, you have the absolute right to take it back! So take them back and write the pages of your book! And while writing the pages of your book:
Unapologetically love yourself (and those around you)
For you to unapologetically live, you have to first love yourself. Uh huh! When you do not love yourself there will always be this raging battle within you, this unease within you that eventually affects the way you view and experience life. Get out of the trance you have been in. Wake up and love who you see when you look in the mirror. Speak positive things to yourself. Be confident in who you are. And do not be shy to share your awesomeness with others.
Life is what you decide to make it. Let the world know (even if it really does not care to know) that no matter what you have been through, you will live life and live it to the fullest. Smile more often. Laugh everyday. Forgive. Travel every now and then. Experience new things. Embrace the beauty of nature. Ravel in and be thankful for the little things. Read about different places, people, ideologies (phew, if you can’t physically explore the world, let the world come to you through reading!).
Unapologetically fight for what you want
What do I mean by fight? I mean do not give up. Life is not a bed of roses all the time and great things do not come easily. Know EXACTLY what you want. Think positively and productively. Plan thoroughly. Be creative. Persevere! Work hard! Stay motivated. Stay inspired. Things will eventually work out in the end. It all depends on you and your outlook. And while you are waiting for things to work out, unapologetically live.
Unapologetically be you
It is difficult to be yourself in a world that makes conformity the norm. Trust me, I know. But there is a freedom that comes when you are your true self. You do not feel this urge to have one persona at work, another at home and another with friends. Having multiple personalities is exhausting and sucks up your time and energy which could have been channeled into doing something more productive.
So wake up, give yourself a good shake and make up your mind today!
Is life going to be a mundane task for you?
Or is it going to be a beautiful adventure?
Remember, be sincerely you!
