Go with yourself in your pace, baby girl


There are times when we feel everything is going down on us. And everyone we care about is onto us for doing something in life like they are doing and sometimes so are you, on yourself. Nobody likes giving you the freedom to choose or for you to go with the pace your life has provided you with.

There is always someone asking if you have decided anything yet. Like – when are you going to get the job, when are you going to get married, when are you going to get kids, and the list goes on. We have all been in this kind of a situation and we all know very well that how much it sucks. And how much you just want to be invisible and shut the noise off. But the thing is, you’re not alone, and you yourself know that.

In these kinds of situations, people win if you start feeling withdrawn. And that is what they expect you to do, that is why they come around your neck in the first place – to feel superior to you. But you have to fight this. You have to accept that what they fee is right and also that your life path is right. There can always be two rights at one single moment. Go forward in life and your aims with a positive and nonjudgmental opinion. It is always better to accept both the truths – yours and theirs – and continue with your life without the feeling of hatred towards people who mean a lot to you.

When you feel like you’re losing your fight with yourself in dealing with the pressure people put on you – just take a break. Go out for a solo drive, put in your favorite music, go for a jog, go to the gym, go to the dance class, do whatever your heart feels good in. Just don’t put yourself down. It never works that way. We kee telling others that life is short but we sometimes forget it when it comes to us.

We forget that life is short and we’re wasting it living off the pressure people put on us. It is your life and you gotta do what you gotta do, right? So don’t let the world tell you what you have to do, if they do, don’t let it bother you so much that you shut down. Life will always be filled with such people. Learn to accept them and learn to accept yourself. You are amazing. Don’t give someone the power to dim your light, baby girl.

So go out there and shine your brightest, everyone has goals in their lives, and you will get there, sooner or later. Don’t let disappointments get down on you and tell you that you can’t do it. Because you know you can. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, not even yourself. You’ve got this, girl. Keep your chin up and your head held high and keep doing your thang cause you know the world ain’t the same without your sunshine. Good luck, girl, the world is waiting for you to reflect and shine.

Because no one does it

like you do it yourself

Life in a cycle

Every day we go through the same cycle, the waking up to the alarm, the almost skipped breakfast, the running late to catch the taxi, the long work period, the coming home, having food, and then finally, sleeping, just to wake up to repeat the cycle.

The things go on like this forever, till we are old enough, sitting in a rocking-chair by the window and thinking, “Did I live my life right?”
We come across a few people in our lifetime who broke away from the same cycle of life, who went out the cycle to live their own lives, they decided their own rules and lived along them, and maybe at the start they had to hear mockery from the close ones, but we all know that now people look at them with admiration because they themselves spend a lot of time of the daily life thinking if they should break out of the routine, and if yes, then how?

The Bhagavad Gita — that ancient Indian text — says that it’s better to live your own life imperfectly than to live an imitation of someone else’s life perfectly.
Life is short — I do not need to tell you this, you already know — and we need to build it the way we want, so that when our time comes, we can look at the flash of our lives before us and say, “Yes, I lived it right.”
There are a lot of things we do so that we don’t have to hear things from people so that we are in tune with what other people do, no matter how miserable doing those things makes us feel. It can be as simple as eating that bad-tasting cereal in the morning, to as big as that job which people say is good, but you know how drained and bad it makes you feel. It can be that marriage that you are okay with but that makes you feel dead in life, to that dress you wore to the party that your dresser made you wear but that didn’t go with your taste. It can be as small as a grain of sand, to as big as the mountain. But we need to work for it, for the life that we want, for the feeling of ecstasy that we’ve spent our whole lives looking for, for the peace we will get when our time comes.
Yes, living according to the society feels like the safe choice, but does it give you the satisfaction that life is supposed to give you? The one you read about online and in books? And what are you doing to make it that way? Are you close to reaching that point, or you still have a long way to go?
I hope you’ll take your time after reading this to write down what you want out of your life, and is your present situation going to get you there? Write down what all you need to make it through and get going on it, no matter how slow, but go get your life straight, darling.
