I think sometimes people believe that worrying has some kind of productive purpose. Worry sucks all of your energy and joy out of whatever it is you’re doing. It’s human nature to worry, but when we do it constantly, we run into more problems. It may give you something to do, but you don’t get anywhere.
The next time you are worrying about something, try to remember that you aren’t always in control. Instead, do practical things like make a budget or create a schedule. Be proactive and let go of the stress. After all, it won’t change a thing. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.
Be present. Make love. Make coffee. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed too. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow. Be YOU.
We always have choices in life. We make our opportunities, and we must find it in ourselves to achieve our destiny. We never really know what we can do or achieve unless we try. Stop leaving something important up to chance. Take control of it, and create the outcome you want.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. -William Shakespeare.
(This music video got nothing to do with the post above. One of my favourite songs from the movie POPSTAR. If you watched the song & searching for the answer of where OSAMA BIN LADEN was living when he was killed? He was killed in Abbottabad, where he was living next to a Pakistani military headquarter for almost a year. Either ways this song is hella quirky & uncensored. Watch it with headphones.)
If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path toward happiness; don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes, because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Lee Evans never fails to crack you up. And this one on Cardiff, watch it coz it’s hilarious. Let’s say 2 minutes hilarious & 2 minutes unreal.)
By OVERTHINKING we often create problems that aren’t even there. Maybe you should stop overthinking so much and trust the way life happens. Things change. Every year you grow into someone else. Every year you have the opportunity to start over again and begin, to rise and face the world the way that you want to. Take this with you, you beautiful human being.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to fall. Don’t be afraid to get your heart broken. Don’t be afraid at all. The fear is in your head. The doubt is in your heart. And regret survives in the memory. That is, if you feed it, if you give into it. So please, before you go, remember overthinking is a self-inflicting act. It is the suicide, the doubt of self, the tragedy no one understands. It is instant death without lifting a single sword. So don’t give in to it, you know you’re stronger than that and capable of so much more.
Your life will pass one way or another. The events that will unfold are the events that will unfold. You will meet amazing people who you are meant to. You will find the opportunities you need. You will desire what you want. The choice is not what you experience, but how. How is everything. How is golden. How closes doors and it opens them. How creates something out of nothing.
It is not the years we live, but HOW we live them. It is not who we cross paths with, but how we love them & appreciate them. It is not what we are given or not, but how we take what’s in front of us and turn it into all we ever needed it to be. It is how we experience life, day in and day out, in the quietest moments and biggest ways. The HOW is the way.
