It’s true that at times I get so focused on the negative aspects of life and I fixate on how far away I am from my “dream life” that I forget to appreciate the journey that I’m on and the life that I have. As for the regrets, mistakes, and other unpleasantness from my past… replaying those events over and over in my head only serves to punish myself and keep me from my goals.
Regardless of whether or not things are perfect, the only way to truly live life is to dive in head first and make the most of what you have. I have a million passions and interests that fulfill and push me and many people in my life who love and support me. I can choose to fill each day and each moment with the things that will build the life that I want– the life that will ultimately overshadow the little things that bring me down from time to time.
All I need to focus on is the reality that today is another beautiful day, filled with possibility and potential.
