Hey, take it easy. you don’t need to have it all figured out in order to move forward. you don’t need to attain perfection in order to feel satisfied. you don’t need to be at a particular place, or to do a certain thing at any specific time, in order to be successful.
there is no timeline.
there is no checklist.
so, take it easy. overcome the fear of doing everything at your own pace.
there will be moments in this life where waves of passion will rush in, melting, dissolving, releasing every single trace of suffering. moments were you will be so sure of who you are and what you stand for. and the thing is — you are bound to find the things that fill you with purpose. you are bound to uncover your full potential. you are bound to fill your own cracks with liquid gold.
so, don’t rush to fill your life with what is not yours. slow down. find stillness. listen within. you are exactly where you are supposed to be at this very moment. you have all the time you need to paint your dreams into reality. you have the strength to rise above the blinding walls of the collective consciousness. and you have one precious life. one beautiful human experience. don’t let fear stop you from choosing to turn inward — your mind is a prison when you focus on fear. it will crawl into your heart and direct your life. choose love instead. and save yourself, my dear. you are worth every single strenuous step back to you. 🔥
tomorrow my mom lays to rest another one of her best friends. and this whole week of watching her mourn and grief the loss of yet another friend, confidant, sister and supporter; in the most beautiful way, made me realise something.
🌹i didn't mention in the previous post but this dress has pockets!!! omg why is it so hard to find clothing with pockets?!
🌹another note: how can girls fully love themselves when your family asks you "oh you look so tired. why didn't you put on makeup?" "mom, i did but i just didn't put on eyeliner" i'm comfortable in my own skin and go out with just my eyebrows done and lipstick. 🌹 it's especially tough for teenagers who are learning self-esteem and self-acceptance. your family is telling you to put on makeup so does that mean i need to cover my flaws?
🌹i've seen young teenages who look older than me and it's baffling. they look more beautiful with less makeup but they don't see that because celebrity icons tell you the more the better.
