Going through major life changes has made more opportunities for me to grow. Each and every morning, I question, "how WILL today be better than yesterday?" And by the time I get to bed, each and every night, I question, "how WAS today better than yesterday?". Taking a moment to reflect allowed me to do better. I may not know what I was doing, but I knew that I was growing. Throughout this journey, I made myself a priority. It wasn't selfish at all. I knew that I needed change in my life and I realized that dropping all the baggage that was holding me down made all the other possibilities ENDLESS.
Trying to pick myself back up, I began to realize that no other life is more important than your own. It is myself who needed love, attention, and caring. In addition, I cannot love anything/anyone without loving myself. Depend on your own happiness, not someone else's. Happiness comes from within, it is not a destination or a goal, but only a journey.
On this journey, I met so many new people and concentrated on things that will later serve me in the future. Working out, studying every single day, overloading myself in summer school, extending work hours; It kept me busy and distracted. I was never not doing anything. It may seem like I had no life, but I knew that going through all this will pay off rewardingly. As Muhammed Ali said, "I hated every minute of training but I said 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'" Life happens. There will be tears, regrets, anger, sadness, and hardships. But these are things you are SUPPOSED to feel. There is no wrong way to feel, there's only YOUR way to feel, and that is the RIGHT way to feel. I love my feelings. I love each and every emotion I was granted to feel. The more I express myself through them, the more human I am. My life became a life of color and vibration. Life reflects you in the way you express yourself. The cause of life is the cause of you. You attract your thoughts; things come to you according to your mind, and thats how life truly hits you. Life changes, life grows, but ultimately, life is and will always be fucking amazing.
