If someone is refusing to listen you can’t open their ears.
If they’re set on shutting down you can’t get them to open up.
Walk away and free yourself of that burden. It’s not for you to wake everyone who refuses to be woken up. You can’t and you’ll kill yourself trying.
Close the door and let them lie.
Your path is your own.
Your dreams are your own.
Don’t follow anyone else’s path if you’re not happy with it. The most important thing is your happiness and wellbeing and you’re the only person on the whole planet who knows exactly what that is.
A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. What could you do today that you’ll be thankful for in future?
- Small – get tomorrow’s clothes laid out?
- Medium- reach out to a friend and arrange to meet?
- Getting bigger- Put in some extra study time or music practice?
- Large- sign up for new night classes?
Life is scary. But don’t let that be the main driver of your decisions. Look at what could go right not just what could go wrong.
What could you do tomorrow if you weren’t afraid?
The quickest way to fail at something is to not even try.
Take a simple step today towards your goals. Sign up for a class. Book that trip. Make that phone call.
A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step after all.
You’ve come so far to get where you are now. You’ve overcome so much.
Don’t let that be the end of your story.
Persevere and see where you can go next.
It takes hard work to be independent. Be proud of all you do for yourself.
Remember you’re in charge. You work hard and you answer to nobody.
Whether it’s travelling or in life in general. It’s ok to be alone and it’s ok to want to be alone.
You need only yourself.
So don’t be scared, be strong!
It’s not that all humans are terrible. But they’re fallible.
If a key aspect of your life relies on someone else perhaps it’s time to learn how to do it too. The finances, the DIY, anything.
Partly because you owe it to yourself to be able to take care of your own needs. And partly because if anything were to happen to that person you’d be left incapable.
I don’t just mean food. Nourish your soul! Music, relaxation, exercise.
If you ignore what your body, spirit and mind needs you won’t flourish.
With intentional self care, identifying your needs and taking care of them, you’ll flourish.
What can you do today to nurture yourself?
