I honestly don’t know where to start writing this but all I know is that there are many, many things that are weighing me down since the beginning of this year. If you don’t know it yet, I am a 26 year old boy and my anxiety over the direction and quality of my life has been lonesome for quite some time now. With zero idea how it started, perhaps I have been just anxious because of all the closed doors, unanswered prayers and delayed promises.
The truth here is that, I’ve put so much pressure on myself when I was young that I should be having grander things when I hit this certain age. A career, a house, and postcards from a European trip. I can’t believe I used to be blinded by all the worldly desires! For another truth, I am far away from the goals that I’ve imprinted inside my head. That for every sleepless night, I always ask myself what went wrong with my life because everything from it now seemed upside down. Or it could also mean that I am just being paranoid? I don’t know. But there are many little reasons why the big things in our lives are not happening yet.
Reminding myself to re-set, re-align and re-start as many times as I need to, has been liberating and empowering to my soul.
I know life seems directionless at the moment. But I realized that we cannot really give up on half-time, can we? Because we’ll know the score until we score. That’s the rule of the game.
So friends, here’s a lowkey advice to understand that we only have one life to live and we have to LIVE every damn second of it. If we feel stuck in one place, this is the perfect time to leave the safe harbor, row to the wilderness with your game face on and be free. Like a young person that is yet to discover his/her purpose. What’s there to lose, right? And it doesn’t really matter anyway.
Let’s stay hungry and let’s stay foolish. Do you wanna know another lesson I learned from Ted Mosby? I think for the most part, if you’re really honest with yourself about what you want out of life, life gives it to you.
Do not give up on your dreams yet only because it’s too early for that. And it probably might appear frightening, you know. So do the scary thing first, and get scared later.
