Life isn’t a race and don’t run when the path is broken. Stop for a while and rebuild the path then go back runningat your own pace.
I have seen so many people who are so eager to be successful so fast that they either hurt themselves or hurt others. Never compare yourself to others, we have our own path and some our just lucky enough to get a head start but never let that discourage you nor develop a self-pity. There is no definite timeline of when we should be successful. Ignore those posts you see on social media about “at this age you should have this and that”, just keep grinding towards your goals and focus on your own path. Eventually, everything will turn out fine.
Don’t whine and complain when you fail. Get up, do it again, and try harder.
Sharing some tough love for you all, I have written a lot of Note For The Day posts here, and just a little fun fact about those is that I’m not only posting it for my readers, before it becomes someone to read, these notes are mine first. Every time that I write these kinds of posts, it comes out of an argument I had with myself. My pessimistic and optimistic side often argues, and these notes are the outcome of my optimistic side winning the argument. I am proud of those moments, these notes remind me of those. These notes are also for me— I beat the doubts, and I get to encourage and motivate myself. This is my 19th note, I won at least 19 times. Well, it doesn’t beat the number of times that I lost but I still get to win, and that’s all that matters. I can beat my doubting self, I just have to try everyday and keep beating it even if it means I get to lose most days.
Today is one of those winning days. I’m feeling motivated, I got a little bit of tough love and pep talk from myself and I’m going to make the most out of it. I’m going to be productive today hooray for me!
It’s okay to be sad, it’s okay to cry. We need to stop believing in those posts we see online that we always have to happy and positive, that’s toxic positivity. Life has ups and downs, and it’s normal to be vulnerable at times. You can’t be positive all the time because that takes hard work and a lot of Xanax 😆.
If you’re reading this, then this is your reminder that it is okay if you’re crying in your room right now and feeling like the world is on your shoulders, just let it all out. But you also have to get back up and remember that life is like a tire, it rolls. Just keep trying because life is also a trial and error, we all need to repeatedly just stop, gather strength and pull ourselves back up every time life throws us down.
