Most people are afraid.
afraid of failure, afraid of what other people think, afraid of rejection, afraid of losing.
i am no exception.
it's the fear that prevents us from writing the book, or singing the song, or painting the picture, or speaking for a crowd, or going back to college, or quitting a job.
i've been learning that you will only go as far as you are willing to put yourself out there. the classic "no risk, no reward" is true. the sky isn't the limit, friend. your willingness to put yourself out there - now that's either going to take you places or to a wheelchair at seventy-two years old wondering "what if?" the decision is yours. don't blame the sky. #wordsfromthewindowseat
Over the weekend i had the opportunity to spend some time in the city with my mom whose visiting from atlanta, today we're visiting my brother & sister in law and enjoying a more relaxed day in my new home town. it's weekends like these where i realize how important it is to take time for myself, enjoy slow paces and no set schedules and spend time with those i love most. what have you been up to this weekend? #wordsfromthewindowseat
Because you do learn a lot about people, about the world, about life. let me sum up what i've learnt from this trip. this trip that people took in order to "find themselves". in fact, it's sort of cliché, the type of thing that sounds deep and important but doesn't actually mean anything. and in every step of the way i admit that i'm wrong. put ourselves in a random and neutral environment, then we slowly understand that there's few things that we cannot control in life. that's where we lost ourselves. where we could not accept what people think, do, feel and say about our lives. we all became so obsessed with being “right” about our lives that we never end up living it. again, i have to admit that i'm wrong. about everything. but once i learnt to accept, i started to focus on the aspects of my life that i want to and actually can change. hope that you are just like me. you are wrong, but you have to make it right. #wordsfromthewindowseat
