I found this blog post in my drafts from two years ago. I can’t remember what I was going through at the time of writing it, but when I found it, it really resonated with me.
Two years on and I still don’t really know what I want. There have been so many changes, so many people have come and gone in my life, so many new opportunities have been presented, but I still thought this was an essential note to self.
Note to self (5th March 2015)
Not everyone in life is going to like you.
Some people may seem like they are there for you. Then in times when you really need them, then they disappear.
You have the power to control your life, follow your dreams and also pick the people you associate yourself with.
There have been times in my life when I have made mistakes. There have been times when I have chosen to go down a certain path which my friends have disagreed with. There have also been times when I have had to drop a lot of people because of certain situations and experiences.
No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. That’s one of the most interesting aspects of life.
Forget the “ideal” and the expectations of what individuals should be like. We are all different, individual and unique.In some cases that means sacrificing some things.
I want to know how far you think you should go to chase your dreams and what sacrifices you have been faced with. How far would you go to get what you want from life?
