#InLoveWithLife

So.. This is a little personal post of mine, I feel I need a method of release as I have held a lot in.

Reading experiences from other people, or posts of people giving advice, or expressing their thoughts, have helped me before, and I feel I need to share a little, express some of my own thoughts, let them go and keep moving on.

I have had a some pretty testing times the past 4-5 months, and whilst I can finally say I am overjoyed with where I am today, I was protected from a dismal future which was not for me and I know I deserve far better than the situation I was willing to put myself in to. It’s like I had an awakening. I want to write a bit for anyone who is reading, no matter where, who, what situation you are going through, it does get better. Just never do more for another than they are willing to do, not just for you, but even for themselves.

We all go through troubled times in our life, and we have to learn to take from it what we can and make ourselves stronger (without trying to sound too cheesy :))

Speaking earlier to a dear friend going through their own troubled time broke my heart, and of course I gave advice, I try to help as much as I can. But it resurfaced some feelings of mine, and I just had a moment of looking back and thinking, boy I wish I had listened to myself a few months back. We all say we wish we could listen to our own advice, but we never do, do we?!

Needless to say, I have learnt so much from my recent experiences. Now I am blessed to have been placed in a new opportunity, new place, new people, new beginnings, and whilst it is very exciting, it is still rather daunting. Change IS good. Change is healthy. But change is scary too. I should know, I have lived my life in now 3 continents, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I do feel at peace, but every now and then I get deep in thought, I think back as to why did this happen, or why that, or what should I have done - as a piece advice to whoever is reading this - this is perfectly fine to do - but don’t stay in this space. Just have faith that the answers will all come to you, just don’t over think. It is out of our control. Everything happens for a reason. And what people do unto others, karma will take care of. Just focus on the good of yourself.

There are still so many goals I want to (and will) reach in my life, and the ones I can control I work hard for now. This is my life now, I am in control. And the rest, well, they will come in good time. I have refrained from letting myself in to anything too close for comfort at this point in my life, which I cannot fully control. We all too easily let ourselves go, put so much trust in others, and put our happiness in the hands of someone else, and that can be taken away tomorrow, and it is your own fault for not holding yourself responsible for your happiness. No one else can tell you how to feel and who to be.

This is the biggest lesson I have taken away. I have learnt to be happy with myself, and regaining my confidence and trust. To say these were crushed would be a slight understatement, but again, my fault. I am thankful now, as I get to rebuild myself how I want, and when the time is right and I am ready to share my life with someone who deserves meΒ (damn right! ;))Β and who I deserve, then I get to give off and share more happiness than I ever have before. I would Β get told over many years from many people how smiley I am - this is something I want to remain known for. But these smiles from now will remain genuine, no more hiding behind a counterfeit smile.

Aahh.. Feel’s good to get that off my chest! Now - back to work, have a great day!
