She only felt afraid when she spent too much time thinking about the past or projecting into the future. When she focused on whatever life has placed right in front of her in this moment, she knew she would be okay.
Don’t confuse your path with the destination just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for sunshine.
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don’t be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are.
Tonight, we are young. So let’s set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun.
Bad days end, but a smile can go around the world.
That life contradicts itself, constantly.
That that’s why it’s worth living.
That the difference between pain and love is time.
That love is only as real as you want it to be.
That if you feel good, you look good.
But it doesn't always work the other way around.
That the sun will rise each day and it’s up to you each day if you match it.
That nothing matters up until this point.
That what you decide now, in this moment, will change the future.
That rain is beautiful.
And so are you.
Life becomes wonderful even if there are struggles and difficulties, because we have a God so loving and inspiring, who heals the pain and keeps us going.
We wish, hope, and dream for so many things. We put faith in others. We put our vulnerability on the table before us. We let someone else take our destiny and then expect everything to fall into place. But you know what, that’s a shame because no one knows what you truly want. You are just setting up your own avalanche of destruction. You want something done, you do it yourself. Make yourself happy and don’t rely on someone else to do that for you.
