Just always be the better person.
And make your intentions pure.
What and who you are is what you’ll attract, what you’ll maintain.
Pain is inevitable and it will always exist, but if you focus on understanding what you are feeling and why you are feeling it, you will overcome it.
What does cool mean to you?
To me, cool means living for more than the next moment.
Cool doesn’t mean having the latest Dior, knowing people, being on the list, and sitting at Lucien.
Cool means you are your authentic self.
Cool means you walk the walk.
Cool means being a good fucking person.
Cool means when you are alone, you can stand to be with yourself.
Cool means listening when others speak.
Cool means holding doors open and smiling.
Cool is compassion, understanding, love, and boundaries.
Cool is being good.
BE A GOOD PERSON WITHOUT ANY SECOND THOUGHT.
I hope you have the courage to do things differently,
to be the kind of person who takes the risk,
to be the kind of person who leads with their heart and shows up in their life with a ruthless dedication to learning, and growing and enjoying the hell out of their moments here.
I hope you have the courage to never let comfort or apprehension convince you that you are better off staying still.
I hope you have the courage to trust the part of yourself that knows there’s more out there for you, the part of yourself that is easy to quiet when you’re trying to live by the rules and the expectations of a world that has bred so much dissatisfaction and sadness.
I hope you have the courage to trust the part of yourself that seeks freedom from those trends, from those boundaries, and I hope you have the courage to go after whatever it is that genuinely makes you want to get up in the morning.
I hope you have the courage to find the things in life that ignite you and deepen your understanding of the world and those within it.
I hope you have the courage to fight for a future that inspires you, even if it doesn’t look the way you thought it would.
I hope you have the courage to change.
I hope you have the courage to trust in the person you’re becoming.
If you start living for the smallest reasons, that’s when you know you’re really living,
the smell of rain after a thunderstorm,
the shades of pavements when it’s autumn,
the harvest season and the unspoken competition to pick the freshest tomatoes,
the mediocre midnights and the color of the sunsets,
the smell of bakeries early in the morning,
the frosty breeze of the fast-approaching winter,
the warmth of oven when baking christmas cookies,
the thickness of paper when flipping through magazine pages,
the smell of new books and new clothes and new things.
When you start looking at things, really really looking, you’ll start living.
Because then you’ll understand how it is to really be a HUMAN in this world full of people.
LEARN TO BE A HUMAN.
APPRECIATE & LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOURSELF.
Make choices that make people wonder if you’ve lost your mind.
Don’t worry if you disappoint few people.
Fly off the handle.
Learn to be alone, but learn to be with others too.
Smile when you’re sad, just to confuse those who are trying to bring you down.
Be kind when you can.
Be understanding when you can’t.
Be irreplaceable, undefeatable, incorrigible.
Do all of the small things with grace, laughter and an unshakeable belief in what’s to come.
Live a good life.
You’re unique, electric, never-ceasing.
You’ll be fine.
LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
Your AMBITION should be to get as much life out of living as you possibly can, as much enjoyment, as much interest, as as much experience, as much understanding.
And not to simply be what is generally called a “SUCCESS”.
OPINION is really the lowest form of human knowledge.
It requires no accountability, no understanding.
The highest form of knowledge is EMPATHY, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world.
It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.
Be strong, be kind, be free.
Do things that make you proud of yourself.
Surround yourself with people who bring out your best qualities.
And distance yourself from the people who do the opposite.
Hangout with people who are ready to exchange knowledge with enough understanding about what they are saying & why.
Don’t just follow someone’s words because they said “Investing in stock market/real estate/crypto will make you money/rich”.
95% of these people don’t even know how to multiply 12*13 without a calculator.
Do you really think such dumbfucks can advice anyone on finance?
Forget finance, if someone is saying something without knowing enough about it, that person is a complete fake nut.
Stay away from such morons.
Fun story: Most people who invest in bitcoin think it’s more like a virtual currency, but hardly few know it was designed as a medium of transaction. It’s more like Western Union Money Transfer.
Be true, true to yourself and true to your morals.
Stand up for yourself.
Don’t let people take advantage of your kindness and soft heart.
Don’t take shit from anyone, and don’t put yourself down.
Believe in yourself and believe in your journey.
Be good to yourself.
Be unapologetically you.
Embrace your imperfections.
Accept the fact that when you grow, sometimes you lose people and that’s okay.
Celebrate your every success and learn from failure.
Learn to accept that, first you have to learn a lot about anything & everything before jumping in.
And most importantly, never ever let anything stand in the way of the person you are becoming.
BE A TRUE YOU. (Not my words).
Just always be the better person.
And make your intentions pure.
What and who you are is what will be remembered.
Pain is inevitable and it will always exist, but if you focus on understanding what you are and what you are feeling, and why you are feeling it, you will overcome it.
The expectations we have often do not correspond with reality, we are disappointed every time this happens.
We become disappointed when we expect to be treated as we treat others.
When you start to realize that everyone is living at a different stage, thinking differently and making their choices, then you can only accept the fact that people do not share the same mind and heart.
When you want to be happy you have to let go of that and start with yourself, be the person you can be proud of, be an example, show respect and understanding.
Others may not change, but know that it is not up to you and be proud of how you are.
You’ve got so much soul to be handled by someone who has never been passionate.
Be a better you first. Life is fun, let it be.
