When the real you doesn’t match up with the ideal you, that’s when dissatisfaction and unhappiness arises.
You can either wallow in self-pity, attempt to ignore the issue at all costs, substitute it in vain, or you can face it head on, take action, and reach for those dreams.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that life is never going to be easy, and if you want something, you have to work for it. It’s not going to be handed to you.
It’s such a simple idea, so simple to the point where I feel ridiculous even saying it. But sometimes, we just need to be reminded of it. Don’t be afraid. Don’t let fear take a hold of you. Chase that horizon. Become that person you want to be. Be bold. Be brave. Be strong.
Be the best you you can be.
P.S. I realize this sounds didactic, but this is actually me trying to whip myself back into shape. Hopefully, it will help any readers (?) out there too!
