Live Your Life

Do you ever think, 'What am I going to do with my life?' or, 'What do I want to do when I grow up?' Some people might look for something that will earn them a lot of money or give them enough free time to hang with friends. Why not do something you love? Isn't life about doing what you find enjoyment in and living life to the highest degree? Then why do so many of us live life for the wrong reasons?

We only get to live once, yet some people don't actually live their lives. They just simply go about. So, maybe that didn't make sense, maybe it did. What I'm trying to say is there are people who make the most of their lives and there are people who just do what they have to do to get by in life.

Why? Why would you want to just try and get by through life and not live?

I want to make the most of my life! I want to live my dreams, experience the unimaginable, do what makes me happy. If I'm going to live once, I might as well make the most out of it right?

I'm a shy person, who lets what people say or think affect her some of the time. I think that's what holds me back a lot of the time. I let what others say get to me so much, that I don't always do what I want to do or what makes me happy. I'm thinking on changing that, soon. And you should do that to if you're the same way!

You have dreams or goals right? You think about something all the time. Wondering what it would be like to actually get to experience it. Have it.

The thing is, you can have it! You can experience it! You just need to make an effort for it to happen. Believe that you can do what it takes to achieve your happiness.

In the end, it doesn't matter what people think of you. What matters is what you think of yourself and are you happy with how you lived you're life.

Next time you really want to do something, but you're afraid of others will think, swipe those thoughts aside and just go for it! There is nothing greater than that feeling you get when you do something that makes you happy beyond words.

Only you can deny yourself happiness. So what are you waiting for? Go live your life!

With Love,
