I wholeheartedly believe that every single creature on this earth got offered this life for a reason.
I believe that me, you and everyone else out there is here for a specific task or lesson.
I believe that everyone is worth the best and has the birthright to be happy and free.
But sadly, every single day I witness people giving away their potential, pushing themselves down, losing themselves or drowning their inner drive and light, because they let fear, doubts and negative feelings take over their life and control their ability to live their passions, dreams and strenghts.
They decide to cancel their dreams and work against their true self, because someone told them to, because our minds got programmed and structured to think a certain way, to only believe in one reality and be controlled by society's standards of fear and uncertainty. We become victims of our own mind structures because we stop questioning what we are told and only believe in this one way of receiving the world.
At some point in life, most of us end up at the same point we have seen many people reach before. (Our parents, our friends, our bosses, siblings, enemies?)
And guess what, all of us promised ourself to never end up there.
Nobody ever wanted to end up there but well… at the end, most do - Why?
Well... Can you expect different things to happen when all you do is the same as before?
Can you expect people to stop war, when we teach our children that they get punished when they don't work the way we want them to? Or when we can't even reflect that the discomfort we feel in arguments is only our own insecurities being tackled when someone isn't sharing the same opinion as we do?
Can we expect people to love each other when we can't even find empathy towards our so innocent fellow animals?
Can you expect ending up on the streets of London when you only ever take the same train which to your small, safe neighborhood town?
Can you expect not to end up like your neighbors or parents or whoever, who are miserable, when you follow what they do ?
The only way to get somewhere you have never been before, is to do something you have never done before.
For certain, one of my biggest fears in life always was to waste the incredible precious time here on earth which I got gifted with.
For that I got thinking from a young age… I got thinking:
How can I make my dreams become reality ?
And how am I going to end up being the most happy and fulfilled I can possibly be?
There is a lot of ways to take this road, step by step.
Let me tell you, it is the more exhausting, hard, sometimes frustrating, pretty scary, but also most happy, authentic and rewarding way of life (for me) I have ever heard of and could ever imagine! It is so worth it.
I am blessed with a really special family and an amazing group of friends, who help me to push myself every single day.
I don't take any of that for granted and I understand that for others it might be not as easy to say to people:
"Fuck it ! I am going to change everything! I am going to quit this boring job. I am going to move country. I am going to chase my dreams whatever it costs.“, when they haven’t had support or a reflected and free upbringing.
But thats ok. We all struggle with things. We all have our story to cary, but thats not an excuse.
You are NOT a victim of your story, of your life,your parents, your past… when you don't condemn yourself to being one.
Of course it is easy to be a victim, to not take responsibility for your life and everything else that has been happening within you, around you and has been brought to this world through you. Of course it is comfortable to feel sorry for yourself and pass on the responsibility to someone else for your feelings and actions, but don’t expect yourself going anywhere with that. Yeah, and that is exactly what I am talking about.
Don’t waste your talents, passions, strengths etc. by being passive and not taking charge of your life!
You freaking only have this one!
If you need help, or support - let me be your friend.
Write to me if you want, tell me what you are struggling with. (Insta message @PaulinelaPetite // firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am not going to judge but to support you, and experience with you together what it means to actually live life.
But please, go out there and make this life yours!
Own your life!
Own your body!
Own your voice !
Own your passions!
Own your love, hobbies, crazy thoughts, compassion and individuality.
I am so flipping fed up with seeing incredible people, infinite loving hearts, smart brains and huge talents just being wasted!
Just being covered up and lost in structures, negative energy, unreal fears and this certain understanding of “safety".
There always is a risk to take, but no one ever experienced…………
