Moving forward

“I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.
I’m not.
I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.
I’m not lost, I’m on my way.” -anonymous

We may think this one bump in the road is the end to all our life long dreams. We are confused and frustrated by all the stop signs slowing us down. No matter how fast we go that final destination still seems so far away.

It is easy to give up or feel hopeless when this happens. We may feel lost and confused. What we do not realize, at this time of despair, is that road blocks are their in our journey to guide us to our true destination. Perhaps what we think we want is not what we really need, but merely our imagination telling us this experience will make us a happier person. We may believe we belong somewhere, but then discover we actually belong somewhere completely different.

The journey of life is all about trial and error. Rejection and confusion comes with it. The way in which we handle the disappointments, brings us closer to finding where we truly belong.

Take every opportunity optimistically. Know that every experience brings us one step closer to our true destination. We must be lost first in order to be found and that is ok. Be patient; That one life changing opportunity is right around the corner.


The Mind Marks the Beginning of All Possibilities


As cliché as it sounds, you are the only one with enough power to make a change in your life. Though people can come in and out of your life, shaping the person you are, ultimately, you decided whether you let those people destroy you or make you a better person.

I know how it feels to undergo frustration and fear of failure. Usually you let the mind get the best of you. It is important to remember that you are only hurting yourself in the end by letting negative emotions control your life.

Everyday, I want to remind myself to stay positive, because a positive mind brings a positive life. In my blog, I aspire to encourage others to fight for their dreams and live their life fearlessly. Life is not about being successful, but about being happy with who you are and where you are, sharing your joyfulness with others. A positive attitude is contagious! I am not saying everyday will be a great ball of sunshine (trust me I know); those more frustrating days are just there for us to grow and learn, so that the next time that experience happens we will be ready for it and take it on with a new perspective.

As I am being inspired everyday, I hope you are too! Have the courage to be free from expectations, doubt, insecurities, rejection, obligations and negativity. The only one that can set you free is you!
