Celebrate your scars
You aren’t a victim, you are a survivor in this adventure called life. So things didn’t go your way, you were injured, you were used, exploited, tossed aside, you’re reading this, you survived, you’re a f*cking champ.
Life doesn’t begin after the obstacles, life IS the obstacles. We have our escapes, but reality is much more beautiful. Things aren’t going to always go your way, if you’re entitled to things, you’re going to have a bad time.
Nothing is promised, when that idea is honestly absorbed, every moment is celebrated & appreciated.
Appreciation is so essential, and if you’re too busy feeling sorry for yourself to find things to appreciate, then you’re misery is not only guaranteed, it’s deserved.
Our pursuits of happiness aren’t certain. We’re simply chasing things & people we feel will accomplish that goal, they rarely do, but we’ll keep chasing just in case.
It’s a wild ride, a bumpy ride, and you’re not going to come from it unscathed. Why would you want to? Solid learning comes the hard way. Those bumps, bruises, scars & wounds were earned, and valuable lessons are attached to them.
This life you have isn’t a problem to be solved, it’s an experience to be soaked in. There’s no purpose in this life beyond the one you choose to give it, and even that purpose is permitted to change whenever your heart desires it.
Change is scary, so what? Do you want to avoid scary things so you can arrive to death safely? Don’t take yourself so seriously, your a bag of blood, bones & meat on a floating on a spinning rock, enjoy the ride. People that tell you any different are simply reinforcing their choices, I’m telling you this to reinforce mine
Enjoy your present, you don’t get the moments back. You are who you are, and can create your own smiles, don’t put the key to your happiness in someone elses pocket.
You’re getting wiser everyday, celebrate that!
I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know, I just want you to know you deserve to remember it.
