11th June, 2019
Today has been an especially bad one. Everything I’ve worked for is failing miserably and it’s been going downhill ever since the day started. It’s like I can’t win at anything. It’s just not my day, and it’s been a big bummer because I feel like all the hard work that I’ve put into the art on my Instagram was all for nothing. And sure, it might just be one of those bad things that last a week or so, but I literally cannot catch a break and it’s annoying me! But in spite of all the craziness that has me ripping out my hair, I’m so glad for the freedom and support I am given to continuously keep pushing myself to create something better than the last.”
Ever since I can remember, my family has always been extremely supportive of what I want to do and who I want to be. Not that the rules don’t apply to me because I’m an adult now, but I still get to do whatever I want to as long as I acknowledge a few rules set for me. It’s only fair, considering they pretty much agree to everything I ask or say. But I’m extremely grateful that I get to do things like go out with my friends or be with the person I love, without having to hide a thing from my family.
I’ve always been given a lot of freedom, which I’ve come to realize that a lot of my peers still don’t have, and I’m extremely grateful for it, even though I act like a total spoilt brat sometimes. Who doesn’t? We all have a few moments where we cannot keep it together, but we eventually do get over that. What never goes away is the sense of privacy and security that comes along with the kind of freedom one is given when it comes to making the very important life choices.
If any of you readers are parents, I request that you give your children the freedom to make their own decisions regarding their lives and careers, rather than forcing all of your opinions on them. Understand that they are their own person, and not somebody who can live your lost hopes and dreams. Thankfully enough, my parents have never imposed anything on me, and I’ll always keep that in mind whenever I am dangerously teetering over the edge.
So if you are someone who has been given a lot of freedom and independence to be the person you’ve always wanted to be, count your blessings. It’s not something that everyone gets, it’s an actual luxury to even think about for a lot of people out there.
Which means if you’re given the freedom to follow your heart, utilize it to the fullest and don’t misuse it. Spread your wings and fly to where you wish to be.
Hey guys! For day 11, I chose to write about something I’m grateful for being given. I would love to hear your take on the same. I’ll look forward to hearing from you!
