You have to envision it, no matter how hard life fights you. You have to see yourself, out of the messiness, out of the dark. You have to envision it—you in Paris, or Rome, Germany or Prague, or wherever the hell your hearts wants to go. Wherever you’re meant to go, with your best friend or your lover, feeling like the world is opening up for you. You have to envision it—the small apartment in your favorite city or the cabin in the country, the place you share with someone who’s your biggest fan. The person who will sit with you and sip coffee, reminiscing about all of the small and nameless things you get to experience, and share together. You have to envision it—the mornings you wake up where there is no heaviness in your chest, no lump in your throat. The mornings where it feels unreal to be alive. You have to envision it—your survival, your hope. The version of yourself that you won’t give up on. You have to envision your future, your life. You have to start putting yourself first, you have to make yourself the main character.
You have to live the best version of life that you can. You have to focus on yourself. You have to fall in love with who you are. You have to get excited about where you’re headed, about what’s next. You have to accumulate so many more goals than you can accomplish. You have to be filled with dreams, hopes, ambitions, passions. You have to learn to be spontaneous and let your feet take you where they take you. You have to learn to take new risks, to step out of your comfort zone. You have to be happy about the things you’re chasing because without those things your soul wouldn’t be fed. You can’t let anyone hold you back, you can’t care about what they think. Your life should be filled with so much adventure and so much peace. Your life should be filled with light, growth, faith, hope. You cannot allow any one single being to stand in the way of what is so undoubtedly, undeniably, unmistakably yours.
You have to hold onto whatever it is that fills you with courage, with life; because the worlds needs you here.
It needs you.
Helping you recognize that your dreams are attainable and real.
