This is it! This is something that I have wanted for a very long time. This time tomorrow, I’ll be on a trip with my best friend to a city that we both absolutely adore! We have big plans! And, of course, we are just as nervous as we are excited. We have our fingers crossed and I, for one, hope that this trip goes by swimmingly because this is the first time I’m going on a trip on my own terms (also, the company is really, really amazing, which makes for an even better trip).
We all have big plans and demands in life. We plan and plan and plan, but things just don’t seem to work out for some reason. But guess what? They do! I cannot tell you how grateful I am for how kind life has been to me in the last few years because I can actually see my dreams manifesting in front of me. The feeling is pretty much unreal, I’ll tell you that! And I cannot help but wonder if it’s because I was stubborn enough to hold on to what I want in life, or simply because I’ve got a lucky streak going.
Whatever the reason may be, I have decided to not let anything or anyone affect what I feel or how I choose to live my life. I’ve been playing by my own rules for this long and things haven’t exactly gone downhill. Maybe I’ve had a couple of bad days here and there, but that’s it. There’s no fun to life without the occasional drama. And I’ve understood that doing so takes a lot of courage. You try to break out of the mould society tries to stuff you into, they’re bound to think that you’re defective. But believe me: defective isn’t even real.
Let me tell you why! We’re all built so uniquely, each with our own set of strengths and flaws. We try to polish our strengths further and we try to correct the flaws as much as we can. But what seems perfect to me might not look the same to you. Because we all look at life in such different colours. It’s the most natural thing in the world and I doubt anybody can ever truly conform to one particular thing their whole lives. We’re an evolutionary species: we’re always changing and that is okay!
Years ago, my friend told me that if I really wanted something, I needed to visualize it every single day because what we send out into the Universe comes back to us. Of course, I thought it was bogus back then because it didn’t seem like it could work. But it did. And now that, one by one, I’m trying to do everything I wanted to in life, the opportunities are manifesting on their own! I know that a lot of you might not want to believe that this is real, but how would you know if you never gave it a go?
We all want certain things to happen to us and for us in life. They don’t all happen because that would be absolute mayhem! Could you imagine wanting to be 5 different things from the age of 5 through 12 and all of them actually happening? That would’ve been a mess because most of us didn’t even know how to make any sense of the world we live in back then. But things that are in the cards for us always end up happening because we live in a constant push and pull with the Universe. Call it whatever you want to.
I don’t want to say things like ‘Hang in there’ or ‘Damn, that’s sad!’ simply because I don’t want to make anybody feel like their life is going downhill. It never is. Someone said that when life is holding us back for a while, it’s just preparing us for all the good there is in store for us and I agree. And no, this isn’t just my pre-vacation excitement talking. I see how good things are happening for me and for the people I love and I know that this was long overdue, too!
So maybe life isn’t all that great right now. But don’t ever forget to hold on to your hopes and dreams because the minute you let go, there’s a good chance that you’re saying goodbye to them. Dreams do come true, you know? Whether you believe me or not is a completely different matter. But maybe this year, give it a shot? You never know what might end up happening for you. So why not?
