Have you ever heard that phrase "never say never". I've always been the one to say I'd never do this or I'd never fall for this type. I also use to tell myself the things I would never put up with. And well, I've come to realize that all those statements I've made for myself of "I'd never", I ended up doing. And this made me think about it.
At the time I felt like I knew exactly what I wanted, who I wanted, and to be honest, I thought I knew who I was. I didn't. I didn't find myself until now, at age 25. I mean who has their life figured out at 16? I know I didn't. I didn't know what I really wanted until going through certain life experiences, meeting certain people, and observing the chaotic events our world has gone through. All in which have altered the way I felt about certain things and people. We grow accustomed to other people's beliefs. The people we're surrounded by on a daily basis. Beliefs and opinions we're exposed to that unconsciously influences our own. We grow thinking we really know what we want when really we don't. We become entitled to follow the dreams our parent's create for us. We become inspired to what is taught to us in kindergarten and throughout our time in school. Ultimately you create your own future, your destiny, your career, etc. Parents, teachers, role models all inspire and influence the direction we eventually take. We all have that one person, one event, or one thing that makes us realize what our dreams are. To be a doctor, a firefighter, a musician, a fashion designer, etc.
Our entire life is meant to experience, to find yourself, to be spontaneous, adventurous and courageous. To find what you love, your hobby, your interest, what you don't like, places you want to go, etc. Never let timing, such as your age or how long it'll get you to be where you want to be, be the excuse for you to not fulfill your dreams Never let the opinions of others alter your drive and motivation to reach your dreams. Never let the success of others hinder you from wanting to succeed. We are all different and we all have our timing. You can't be where you want to be if you don't try. Your dreams won't become reality if you don't take the first step to make them come true. Believe in yourself. Trust the process. Have faith. Trust God.
