SO I wanted to do a short and sweet reflective post tonight. Aside from being crazy about health and fitness I do obviously lead a normal life too filled with up’s and down’s, like everyone. I like to be honest on my blog but I don’t see it as a place to emotionally unload! However if I feel I’ve learnt a lesson from something, that I want to share!
Today I had a big realization, that I need to stop viewing life in such small timescale slots and as more of a continually progressing journey. I often, like many of us, put too much pressure on things being perfect and exactly how I want them as quick as possible. Not only is this usually completely unrealistic but when I think about, it if my life really was perfect and exactly how I want it by the time I’m 20, how boring would that be?!
Life and yourself aren’t meant to be perfect, everyone has weaknesses, flaws, lessons to learn and all we can really do is our best. If I know deep down that I’m giving it everything I’ve got, to get my life to where I want it then that is good enough. You’re always going to face bad times and so on but the true result of what effect that has on your life as a whole, is down to you. Learn from mistakes, hard times and devastation, you will become a better person for it and even be able to help and empathize with others.
I also thought today how rarely anything is set in stone. If you choose something now like a career, diet, relationship, place to live, anything, you can’t ever know if that’s how it will be in years time. Again, all you can do with life is make the best decisions for yourself at the time and see where they take you. It may not always end up being the best decision but you won’t know unless you try and you can always change your mind on things, so don’t take anything too seriously.
So really I’m writing this to remind myself to keep working towards my goals and I know one day I will achieve everything I’ve set out to do and more. However never stop enjoying life in the present moment while working towards your dreams, the days you are living through now are no less important than the ones you are working towards creating, so enjoy every second.
Let me know your thoughts on life, your future and dreams below!
