In the moment

Dear dreamers,

Today I’ve decided to share a concept that I have become accustomed to over the past few weeks. Since summer break began, I have set myself the goal of improving my mind and therefore my life, having gone through a bit of a rough few months beforehand. On this journey, there have been a lot of lessons I have learnt, which have made me an allround happier and more enthusiastic person. One of these things is fully understanding the importance of ‘in the moment’, not just simply living in the moment but appreciating things, as they are, in the moment, with the subconscious understanding that they are not going to exist beyond that moment in time. It’s important to note that all you have in the world is the moment that you’re in, which is a very difficult concept to grasp. Everything before the moment does not now exist, and everything to come after the moment does not exist yet. I believe that when you start to acknowledge this simple concept, and begin to cherish every moment you’re given, you will make all the steps necessary to gain what you desire. Make the most of every moment because each moment is a step toward what you truly want. After all, all that you desire is waiting for you, and every moment of your life leads you there, in one way or another. Try to embrace each moment you’re given by trying your hardest to be the happiest and most positive person you can be. Feel the positivity in every moment, and feel it intensely. Choose to act in the best way you possibly can to make each moment the best it can be for yourself. Remember that you create your own reality.

An important thought

Dear dreamers,

A piece of advice I would encourage anyone to take, is to not compare yourself to others, and I mean this by all means. Do not compare your intelligence, appearance, wealth or success to others, because if you do, it can lead you astray from focusing on your own individual goals. There are always going to be people who are ‘better off’ than you, and also ‘worse off’ than you, it’s inevitable, however these things are not important. Do not measure your success and accomplishments against those of other people, and remember that every success begins with small steps. Just because you are not where you want to be at this very moment, does not mean that you will never end up there. Remember, you create your own reality. Do not be put off by failure, use it as an opportunity to strive for success even more. Anything is possible with determination, an abundant amount of belief and a lot of patience. If you want something, never let anybody make you think you are not deserving of it.

Life’s too short

Dear dreamers,

I thought I’d share my thoughts on something which has occupied a lot of my mind today. I’m sure every single person on this earth has heard the phrase ‘life’s too short’, which usually exemplifies making the most out of life, because it passes by more quickly than you can notice on a day to day basis. Today I really thought about this phrase, and began to truly understand just how fitting it is. I reflected on specific past experiences where I felt like I had spent too much time pleasing other people, that I started to lose sight of myself and failed to do what was best for myself at times. I even went as far as to choose somebody else’s satisfaction over my own health. And then I realised that I don’t want to encourage a single person to live like that. I cannot stress enough how important it is to live your life for yourself, do what makes you happy, and to never sacrifice your happiness for the sake of somebody else. Because life’s too short to do otherwise. At the end of the day, it is only you who is living your life. As much as you can try and describe your experiences and others may have had similar, only you truly know exactly how you feel at all times. There are secrets you share between you and yourself. You are the person that’s in control of how you live your life. You do not share the exact same mind as any other person. It’s factors like this which show how important you really are, to yourself. You wouldn’t be you… without you?  It’s important that you always strive to be the best version of yourself, for you. It’s important that you make time to spend some time alone, and that you endeavour learning more about yourself; what makes you feel safe, what makes you feel happy, and act in tune with these thoughts to make the most of your life. It’s important to make yourself happy.

A thought on destiny

Dear dreamers,

You must learn to acknowledge that destiny has no boundaries. Some paths will join and it’s inevitable. You stumble into perfect situations with poor timing, but fate always has a plan. Destiny attracts the purest forms of love, through people, places and passion. And when you have that feeling, that one feeling that changes the way you look at a person, when you look them in the eyes and know that they’re something special, you can never be wrong. Seek out adventure in every form of love you have in your heart. Go after what makes your heart beat out of rhythm and treasure it with every ounce of energy in your soul. Go and get the feeling of warm sunshine radiating on your face. Go and get that electric feeling of holding the person you adore more than anyone, and appreciate every tiny detail. Go after everything that makes you feel alive because those things were made for you. Go after what makes you want to dance with joy, or climb a mountain, or marry a person. Put your whole heart into your life and results will show; it can lead you to the most beautiful journey. When you feel magic in someone, never let them go. Energy is crucial, and through it everything connects. Feed positive energy into your mind and follow the signs destiny provides you; it will always lead you in the direction that was meant for you. Appreciate people for who they are and never hesitate to show your love because they might need it just as much as you. Pursue anything that makes you feel intensely happy, and don’t stop until you get it. Your destiny awaits you.

The simplest advice

Dear dreamers,

Another journal entry I found, for anyone who may need it right now.

Wake up. Stop living in the past. Stop drowning yourself in worry. Enlighten your mind. Find your muse and embrace every single bit of creativity you own. Fulfill it in the best way possible. You created your own universe, so why are you complaining? If you don’t like it, change it. Because you alone have the power to do so. If you’re not satisfied with something in your life, do something about it rather than sitting around waiting for change. Appreciate every little thing. Be productive. Love more. Learn from your mistakes but don’t dwell on them. Live fast, live young, be infinite. Because life’s too short and you hear that phrase a lot. Don’t spend your final hours on this earth regretting all the things you didn’t do. Change your life while you can. You’re young, and you’re only getting wiser. Be kind, be gracious, be determined. Your capabilities are endless. You can do anything you put your mind to. Never let negative thoughts consume you. Take care of yourself. Don’t let a minute of life pass you by, because time is a crucial concept that the universe created. Because time is something which exists in each and every one of us. Let your life be a movie. Live, live, live, live, live and live more. Never look back. Every struggle you’ve been through will only make your heart stronger and your mind wiser. Stop feeling guilty for having feelings which are valid. Take spontaneous road trips. Sing your heart out when you’re happy. You’re beautiful in your own way. You’re unique and you’re special and your worth is formidable and believe me, you don’t want to be anybody else. Be open, be honest, be carefree. Don’t overthink. Trust that everything will work out how it’s supposed to. Life isn’t easy, and you need to work hard. But with your little diamond of a mind, you can do it. Don’t let any obstacles stand in your way. There will be times when you feel defeated, but promise me you’ll never give up. Promise yourself you won’t stop until you get what you want. And never feel like you don’t deserve it. Live life. And keep going. Make the most of the life you’re given and live it at a hundred miles an hour. Keep living until you achieve your wildest fantasies, because you only get one chance at this life, and oh what an adventure it can be.

More life tips

Dear dreamers,

In light of an earlier post ’20 life tips’ I have decided to share more life lessons that I have learned through my past experiences as well as those around me. I hope that they inspire and encourage you.

♡ —- part two —- ♡

1.don’t be disheartened by failure. use it as an opportunity for guidance and strength. you’ll get there.

2.choose to channel your energies into productive things which will make your life happier and more enjoyable. these things allow you to flourish as a person.

3.listen to your body. your health is a key priority.

4.do what makes you happy because your life is only yours. accomplish as much as possible and remain determined.

5.dedicate time to a hobby or a particular interest, such as sports or blogging. engagement in these are refreshing and can minimise stress.

6.never lessen yourself because of the actions or decisions of somebody else. they don’t make you any less deserving of what you want.

7.understand that worrying has no use. choose to focus on how you are going to respond to your obstacles rather than looking back on them. every day is a new opportunity to reinvent yourself.

8.trust in the universe. the energy that you put into the universe will be reciprocated. cultivate your thoughts wisely. what you think, you attract.

9.accept that you will not be one hundred percent happy every single day. it’s okay not to be okay sometimes. take the pressure off yourself a little.

10.try your hardest not to put things off. if you want something, act on it now. time is our greatest enemy. don’t allow it to be paired with regret.

Define happiness?

Dear dreamers,

Happiness to me is not a concrete construct. Happiness is not to be achieved, it is to be discovered within the core of the soul to guide a way of living. Happiness is a concept made of fragments which each contribute to feeling good within ourselves. It’s a profusion of feelings which collectively manufactures a structure. This structure is the foundations of a positive and healthy mindset. It combines elements which build upon one another and are composed through copious emotions which are unbounded and cannot be exactly defined. Happiness, to me, is a cup of warm coffee whilst watching the sunrise. It’s the pensive feel of walking above autumn leaves accompanied by the sound of birds singing. The feeling of accomplishing something you’ve only ever dreamt of. It’s stargazing and feeling connected to the comforts of the universe. It’s the appreciation of art, or reading your favourite book while it rains outside. It’s the feeling of humbleness, and late night talks with the people you love most. It’s the sun shining through the curtains on a spring morning, and discovering new music. It’s the carefree feeling of driving fast with the windows down, and watching your friends laugh to their hearts’ content. It’s feeling inspired by a new poem, or by listening to somebody’s deepest desires. Happiness is sempiternal. It stems from an abundance of small things, and adds up to create a beautiful picture. It’s the stimulation which aids a person to pursue their wildest dreams.
