Life is messy. Crazy. Unpredictable. Wild. But isn’t that better than being boring? I feel that in order to live you must embrace the nuttiness. We have to stop being so hard on our damn selves. We are so critical of ourselves and others. Why can’t we just accept the brokenness? The weakness? The “failures”? We have become so afraid of risking that we stay in the backseat. We allow life to happen to US instead of ruling our own domains. Let’s jump back into the driver’s seat. Let’s RUN THIS SHIT. Our lives are what we make of them. The more we can acknowledge that the more we can move forward. Every day, each moment, let’s live. I know that I am very far from perfect. I have so many shortcomings. I have so many things to learn and to grow from. I don’t have this all figured out. But why not try? I want to accept my own issues in order to keep going. I don’t think that hiding our issues is going to help anyone (especially ourselves) so why not just be who we truly are? True love and acceptance begins with yourself. We must love ourselves. Every part. Every piece. Everything. Acknowledge your fears. Your “failures”. Your dreams. Your hopes. And take it one step at a time to move forward. I’m not sure what that means for you. It will be different for each and every person at this exact moment in time. We are all at different places in our lives. But let’s stop judging ourselves and each other. Why not take life by the horns and ride it out alongside one another?
Spoiler alert: No one has this daily life more figured out than you.
So…Love yourself. Love others. And keep it moving.
