worth the wait


I’ve become more free in living out my dreams.  While this is amazing, it’s a fairly new concept that I’m growing into more everyday.  Living freely has been something that I have struggled with, even before I recognized that I was struggling with it.

Most of my life, I’ve supported everyone else’s dreams, largely because I feel like I wasn’t worth having dreams of my own; let alone living them.  (This is not coming from a place of pity, but one of self-reflection and truth.)  I didn’t realize that I had such an unhealthy view of myself, but then again: You don’t know what you don’t know.  I’ve even lived for other people, but I’ll save that for another post.

The crazy thing about having a different mindset is that I don’t approach things the same.  I now react differently to trying new things.  My mind is open.  Now I think, “Hmm.  That might be interesting to try.  Let’s do it.”  I’m not throwing caution to the wind, but just willing to try something new.  Now’s as good a time as any, I say.

That’s just it: Be willing.  Be willing to try something, anything to change your life.  Know that things can’t go as they always have been.  It’s time for a change.  Time is far too precious to be wasted.  There’s a lot riding on this.

But how did I get here?  I don’t have a concrete answer for you.  I’ll say that through my experiences, I’ve learned numerous lessons.  More importantly, the lessons only grafted to my fabric because I applied them to my life.  Only then did I move forward in my new-found courage.  I believe that I had to go through certain things in order for the lessons to be long-lasting.  I heard someone say this: “You don’t appreciate something until you have to work for it.”  Indeed.

I appreciate the things I’ve gone through, because they have helped me to become a better version of me.  Who’s to say: Maybe I wouldn’t have appreciated my trials when I was younger?  But I believe that it truly is well worth the wait.

Until next time,

Love & Peace.
