We often seem to forget that it’s our own choice how we want to spend the rest of our life. We get so caught up in what others are doing, and trying to fit in that we completely forget that we were really born to stand out. Or, we think that we have time, when the truth is that we don’t. Waiting becomes a habit, and more often than not ‘later’ turns in to ‘never’, and before you know it your chance to explore this world and all its amazingly beautiful people and places has passed you by. You have this one life, how do you want to spend it? Start creating a life that feels good on the inside – not one that looks good on the outside. Follow your dreams, take the risk and live your passion. Challenge yourself and don’t be afraid to try something new. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone – that’s what life is all about. That’s living your life! The universe created you for a reason, go out and find out what it is ♡ Be brave with your life. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. You didn’t come here on this planet to learn perfection, you came here to take risks, fail, crash and get back up again. That’s how you learn something about yourself. That’s how you grow. You have this one life – make yourself proud. Make sure you can say you choose your life, you didn’t settle for it. Life is happening right now. Go out and live it. You will be very, very glad that you did
So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you? The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels – that’s creative living. Do whatever brings you to life. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. The courage to go on that hunt – that’s what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one.

Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked, and don’t ask for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks, and really listen too, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people that you love them and that you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people. Be the greatest person you can possibly be and when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great, your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on this earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light, and they will come

And I mean; even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward, right? So tell yourself that you can and you should. And if you are brave enough to try – you will.
