I’ve spent so long working on myself that it’s becoming almost obsessive. My vibration is higher than it’s ever been and I find that others can’t keep up with me. I’ve gotten some great advice throughout my life and some I wish I had heard years ago, some I did hear years ago but just now makes sense, some I get in the present. All I can do is sum it up to this.
If you want to become something of yourself then do it. If you want to be a writer then write. If you want to be a singer then sing. If you want to draw, paint or take photos then do it! Who is the one stopping you? I didn’t ask WHAT is stopping you I asked WHO is stopping you? Because in all reality that is the true question.
Who is the person keeping you from living the dreams that you have? The excuse that I always get is money, And honestly that’s a great excuse, I used it for a really long time. But I still don’t have any money and I’m closer to my dream than I ever imagined I would be. I don’t have the time either, it is also another great excuse, I use that one a lot too. That wasn’t what I asked though. I asked WHO is stopping you?
I’m not here to judge anyone because I’ve used those excuses too, I still do. But now regardless of who criticizes me for my time management, my time is spent on me and working towards my goals. My goals might involve my friends, my goals might involve my family but ultimately my goals involve me! They aren’t dreams anymore they are now goals.
The only reason I never worked on my dreams was because of fear. Fear is the number one killer of all kinds of things as I’ve said before in other posts I’ve done. Fear can keep us locked inside of ourselves where we think it’s safe. I think more people are afraid to live because they don’t want to step out of their comfort zone and be judged for being happy and living the life they want to live. If you don’t believe me next time you’re with a group of friends or just people you hang out with coworkers, friends, family or just anyone and mention your dreams to them. What kind of reaction do you receive? Was it positive? Was it negative? Was it positive then had a BUT in there? Does it make you doubt your dreams?
You know what I think about it? I say fuck them! As long as I’m not hurting anyone and I’m doing what I love, I don’t really care what anyone else thinks. I’ve done more things with myself in the last 18 months than I’ve done in the 43 years I’ve been alive and I don’t give a fuck who didn’t like it, who doesn’t like it, and who won’t like it in the future. I no longer live to please other people, I live to please myself and live my life the way I want to live it. If I want to dye my hair purple and Tattoo my face then I will. If I want to drive a pink car because I like pink that’s great for me. If I want to move to the mountains alone and live off the land away from society no one will stop me. If I want to date that tattooed up, pierced dude with the Mohawk that lives down the street then that’s what I’ll do. It really is for no one to decide but me. Too many people in the world let their decisions revolve around the ones that they hang out with the most when the only one that matters is you! If someone doesn’t want to hang out with you because you have purple hair, it has nothing to do with your hair, it has to do with the fear of judgment that they will get for being seen with someone who isn’t “normal”. That is the hardest concept for me to grasp but I am getting it.
If we continue to focus on what everybody else thinks and ignore what it is we think, the world is not gonna get better. When are we going to start worrying about ourselves and stop worrying about what other people are doing? When are we gonna be mindful of the things that WE do and change the things that WE do instead of pointing our blame at everybody else? Don’t forget when someone tells you that you can’t do something they are speaking from their own limits not yours!!
Remember everybody wants you to do good at life as long as it isn’t better than them, so why spend your life trying to please everybody else? Why should we be mad when people won’t support us when most people can’t even support themselves? Live your life the way you want to live it. The only one you have to answer to is yourself. Must be why most sucessful people are so quiet about their plans.
Since I’ve started this adventure, it has gone from a journey to an adventure now, I have started writing, I am working on a little bit of art and getting amazing reviews from what I am doing and I am also working on some other things that I always dreamed of doing. All with just sheer motivation for wanting to be better than I was yesterday. My stuff may not be the greatest but I am helping people. In my own little way I am helping people by helping myself be the best ME I can be and that is all I really ever wanted.
Each and every one of you out there are absolutely beautiful and there is no comparison between you and the person next to you. We are ALL part of the universe and we ALL have a special place here. Find the courage to be as beautiful and full of light as you can be, one never knows who is watching.
