Look at yourself in the mirror. Ask yourself are you scared? Why are you so scared? Do you feel vulnerable some days?
It is time to stop being paralysed by fear. It is time to stop caring what other people think. Fact:You will never please everyone no matter how hard you try. There will always be people who don’t ‘get’ you and don’t want to ‘get’ you. That’s fine – just focus on the people who make you smile. There is no sense in pushing and reshaping relationships to suit you, simply nourish the people who love you back. For the record, kindness and compassion is a good starting point. Ditch the people who struggle to present these characteristics. Life is too short not to cheer and not to smile with each person you share a pot of tea or apple martini with!
It is time to say what you feel. If someone has hurt you sometimes they need to know, sometimes there is no point and a dignified silence is best – choose your battles wisely.
It is also time to wear whatever you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud and dance to it. Celebrate who you are – an individual.
Why are you living for the weekend? Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Take chances and opportunities that come along but you must make your own luck. Create your own opportunities. This life is yours.
When are you going to realise that you can do whatever you want? You do not have to ask for anyone’s permission. You do not need to seek another’s approval. This is your path. This is your story. This is your life.
