Grateful | Personal11:22
As a very complex human being that I am, I must say that I tend to be very hard to please, I have high standards for various things and I tend to forget the big picture, I tend to forget what life actually is. I finally had some time to think, to just have a bit of time with myself and to decide who I actually want to be and whom I have become.
In the past few years my life changed a lot, I got a job, I started a blog, I started chasing dreams and hoping that one day I will actually catch them, I have gained a lot of things and lost some others, but so far, so good, I learned one big thing: I should be grateful.
A thing that we forget when we start missing the big picture and focusing on just a few details is that everything that we do and everything that happens to us has a huge influence in who we are as human beings and it slowly builds us up as better versions of ourselves. I was so focused on just a few details of my life that I forgot to look around me. So here I am looking at all of it. It's easy to miss it all out, to get overwhelmed by everything, to get so sunk into your everyday things that you must do that you forget that the most important thing in the big picture is you and not anybody else. There is no reason in leaving yourself and your happiness into anyone else's hands, you have to do it by yourself.
I know that I should be grateful, grateful for what I have learned in the last 2 years, about me, about people, about trust, about friendship, about life in general. I am grateful, because now I know so much more than before and because now I am , I want to believe, so much closer to the best version of myself. I want to be better at everything that I do.
And most of all I learned that I am enough. And so you are. You don't have to change for anybody, you don't have to give up on parts of yourself for anyone, to make them happy because that's only going to take away parts of you, will change you for someone that is not even worth that, and you know why? Because nobody who asks you to change is worth it, they have to accept you and love you for who you are.
So look around and think about it. Look at what you've learned, look at what you have and build yourself up into the best version that you can possibly be. I damn know I will!
