Life is a Beautiful Struggle

Trust your Journey
Trust your Journey

At times do you ever feel that you’re carrying the world on your shoulders? You want to achieve your set goals so badly, please your family, friends, prove doubters wrong, but then you realise that you’re placing too much pressure on yourself. Admittedly, this has been the case for me. I have had many days where I have felt so exhausted because I am worrying too much, trying to please family, friends and make them proud of me, just so they don’t think I’m a failure. But then I asked myself: “Why am I stressing myself like this?”, I could never really understand why, but I just felt like I needed to… “It’s All or Nothing”“Failure is not an Option”, those were the only justifiable answers I kept saying to myself over and over again in my head. Even so, failure should never be an option, but then I realised that I cant keep using that as an excuse to stress myself out and worry excessively.

It’s very easy to give yourself a million reasons as to why you need to achieve your desired goal, which is good as it can motivate you, but it can also be an hindrance, because you have giving yourself so much reasons why you need to succeed to the point where you feel that failure can never happen. Well it can happen and it isn’t a bad thing, in some respects failure is needed for personal growth.  So don’t be so hard on yourself,realise that there are going to be setbacks along the way and understand that it’s part of your journey. Most of all don’t feel you have to please everyone. Your Journey should only fulfill you, making sure others are happy along the way shouldn’t be a prerequisite, friends and family will support you regardless.

Learn to trust your journey and continue to work hard to achieve your goals and aspirations, nothing comes easy in this life, but having persistence and dedication will always make your journey worthwhile. You can never be a failure for trying, it just simply means that you’re working hard to achieve what you set out to do. Do not worry or stress just keep working hard and have faith in your abilities. Yes!, it’s easier said than done but when you really think about it worrying never does you any favours.

When you fight for your dreams, secondary voices in your head are gone.

    Need some inspiration this morning? Sometimes being selfish with your needs and aspirations is what you need to succeed. Put your goals first and don’t look back.

    Things will happen in life and you will be upset, angry, happy, sad, and everything in between. But make the most of it. Take charge and live YOUR life. It’s a privilege for everyone else in it.

    Work to make you day better and achieve your goals that will make you happy. Because after all, if you can’t make yourself happy, you can make anyone else happy either. Spread some happiness.
