A message first and foremost for myself. It's so easy to stay in your comfort zone, the mundaneness of a 9-5 job, the security of a relationship that bores you. You try to convince yourself that the minor highs are enough, that things are not so bad.
But it's 2AM and you're staring at the sky, wishing for a life that looks nothing like yours. How are you meant to reach those goals of you insist on settling?
There's nothing wrong with this life and for someone else, it will be enough. But you are not someone else. You'll let these thoughts chip at your soul, and before you know it, you'll try to live through your children, you'll be bitter and surrounded by regrets.
The fear of failing, the fear of not finding better consumes you. But how will you know if you don't even try? You'll never know 100% the outcome. Nothing in life is guaranteed. You can have the most 'secure' life and still things could fall apart over night. You shouldn't live your life by that. You should atleast take a step in the direction of what makes you happy, regardless of opinion, regardless of failure. Do it for yourself and watch yourself grow.
Be Brave. Spread your wings and fly. Don’t be ruled by fear. Many people with half your talent are already doing more. You just have to start. I’m writing my goals out now! What are you going to do with today?
