Start Being You

Stop trying. Stop trying to be something you aren’t, stop trying to do something you really don’t want, and stop trying to become everyone else but yourself. You are not a human trying, you are a human being, and the sooner you start being, the less time you will waste away hopelessly trying to create a reality that just isn’t real.
Just be you, do you, believe in you, and be real with you. All you have in this life is your very being, and that is a beautiful thing to waste on trying to cover it up with something you’re not. We tend to think we’ll find solace in turning into everything we aren’t, when in reality, genuine solace is found by turning into what we are capable of by being true to who we actually are.
You will always be better at being yourself than trying to be somebody else. You have been given this life with the sole mission of making the most of your reality with every single day you have. But in order to make the most of your reality, you need to be willing to make the most of YOUR reality, not someone else’s. So let go of everything you aren’t, everything you don’t really want, and everyone else you’re trying to be, and grab hold of everything you really are, and everything you really want, and go get everything you’re capable of being.

For Them

When you are losing faith, and coming to the end of your rope…look around. When you have tried everything you can to make your vision a reality, but you just can’t seem to get anything to work…look around. When the pep talks, the speeches, and the motivational social media posts lose all their luster and meaning, and you feel like you just can’t find the spark in anything anymore…look around. And when you are just done, tapped out, given up, and all you want is a way out of the suck…look around.
Look around and you will see the faces of the people who don’t just believe in what your capable of, they know what you are capable of. They believe in everything about you. They have your back, they have sacrificed for you, they have walked through fire for you, and they would follow you to the depths of hell, all just so you could succeed. No different what you feel, and would do, for them. Just look around. You know these people are there, even if you don’t want to admit it.
When you have lost the will to do it for you, look around, and do it for them. Be the person they see in you. Be the person they have invested their time, love, and compassion in. It can’t always be about everyone else, or for everyone else, but until you can do it for you again, do it for them. Behind every success is a low point, a point of seemingly no return shrouded by the darkest of days. But if you can just look beyond yourself for a second, and see the people behind you, there you will find the grit to keep going, because you better believe they would do the same for you.

In the Moment

So life just kicked you square in the teeth. You’re a bit wobbly on your feet, a little dazed and confused, and a whole lot of embarrassed or frustrated. In the heat of the moment, you vow to change, you vow to never let it happen again, and you vow to take bold and decisive action in order to make damn sure it won’t. You go home. You look in the mirror, and in a moment of clarity, you finally admit to yourself you’re better than what just happened, where you’re at, and where you’re headed.
Never forget these moments. Sear them into your memory, because in the coming days the emotions will wane, the fire will fade, and you will start to fall back into homeostasis and the familiar comfort of the norm. Slowly you will start to justify conducting business as usual again, and dismiss all of your previous thoughts and ideas as an overreaction. In doing so, that person you briefly saw in the mirror so clearly begins stepping back into the murky abyss of unrealized potential and foundationless dreams.
In these moments of chaos and clarity, when all of a sudden you feel the electricity of audacity, and the rush of action coursing through your veins, you must seize the power your mind is showing you. Don’t forget how it feels. Capture it. Believe in it. Harness it into a plan of action you can systematically execute out of the ashes. The mirror to the soul is hung in defeat, and reflected upon in redemption. So when someone shows who you they really are, believe them…especially when that person is YOU.
