I cannot tell you how many times I have wished that some future event would hurry up and take place. I also wish I had the formula to getting to that one moment in time when suddenly, you feel great in your own skin. Thirdly, I wish that we got positive feedback from people when we needed it more than when it is considered sweet but not as crucial as it once was.
Thing is, if you are doing what you can to be your best, it’ll happen when it is supposed to so set aside all the fretting and worrying. I can hear some saying, “that is easier said than done”.. but how easy is it really to unload a burdensome weight? Really easy! especially when you realize you’ve been carrying it around for eons not going anywhere. Tell ya what. Just set that pack down, you can pick it up later if you find you’d rather carrying it- but you won’t :)
I think sometimes whether it was our parents, our schools or our own ambitions, we feel like if we don’t get to the XYZ goal of achievement, we have lost. We haven’t. If we are doing our best to be our best, loving, peaceful, and healthy selves, we have already won. “You are not here to just fill space or be a background character of someone else’s movie. Consider this, nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you.” David Niven
