Wait, don’t click away. I know that the title is a bit of a cliché, but hear me out. If you are anything like me or anyone else living on earth at this very moment you have thought about what your purpose is and what you are supposed to do with your life. Especially when you’re still young you have this immense need to find what you are yourself, everyone expects you to have an answer when you’re 18. If you think about it, it’s the most bizarre thing you can put on anybody’s shoulder because no one has the answer at that age, 60 years old barely have that luxury.

Of course, there are people who know what they want to do as a job, what their calling is in the field of work but let me tell you, they don’t have everything in order either. Trust me, I feel blessed in knowing, and having known what I want to do in that aspect of life for as long as I remember, but I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about myself. There is always something you can find out or explore further.

Some people may say that getting to know people around you is one of the hardest things you can do, I’d like to say that getting to know yourself, finding yourself is the hardest thing we do in life. How much do we actually know? There are times when you just want to let yourself go, all your beliefs and all of your dreams but those are the times that you truly know what you want, whether that is spiritually or just otherwise in life.

I think that in this day-in-age we spend so much time in the company of others physically but also online that we forget to just be with ourselves and truly find ourselves. So I challenge you to at least once take some time for yourself in the quiet or outdoors to just get to know yourself and the thoughts that go through your mind and truly evaluate them. I promise you that when you do you will grow more and more as a person each day.

During this past week I have fallen totally head over heels for the guys of Yes Theory, not only are they cute, funny and genuine but their message is one that everyone, including me, should live by more frequently.

Put yourself in situations that make you feel uncomfortable. How many times has anyone been able to change their lives by staying inside their comfort zone? Think about it: When was the last time you did something that really deeply affected you? Was that inside of your comfort zone or did it make you even a tiny bit uncomfortable?

I’m just going to go out on a limb and say that it most likely was not fully inside of your comfort zone. The fact is that we all fear failure and not being able to succeed when it comes to what we truly want to pursue. What we tend to forget is that if we do make it we might actually be able to change our lives and reach higher than we ever thought that we could.

Routine is something that is very easy to fall into. You eat, sleep, drink, work and repeat. There is rarely anything that breaks that cycle. You get stuck and then you feel like there is no way of getting through the cycle that you have fallen so deep into. I bet that there have been stretches of time when you have walked around and felt like a zombie, doing just enough to keep your chin up and stay alive.

That is why Yes Theory has gotten under my skin because they are absolute, 100% right about their philosophy of doing something that makes you uncomfortable every day. It is going to be hard at first but I have decided to implement it in my life and just live life, because what is there to lose?

If there is one thing you should know about me is that I have an overwhelming amount of love for Teslas. Now, I know what you may be thinking; “Well, there went my interest. Everybody is into Teslas” and I will not deny that I found my love for Teslas through pop-culture, through rich people bragging about their fancy cars. But it has become more than that.

The more I fell in love with the car, the more I learned about it and the founder of the brand, the more respect built up in me. Wow – if I could condense my feelings into one word it would be Wow.

Elon Musk is a name that more and more people are starting to learn about whether it is through his SpaceX, Tesla or just simply hearing it at random, the name is out there. There is so much that you can learn from Musk and how he goes about his vision of the future.

Although masses have doubted the way Musk has seen the future. He has been on the verge of losing everything he invested in his companies but also what he personally holds. Some might see him as somewhat of a crazy person, trying to change the way people think about the world and start the shift to a more sustainable world. It seems like a big task for one man but he has done exactly what he has decided to do. It is the quality which I find the most admirable in Musk.

He does not stop at doubt or at what others might see as impossibilities. He sees his goal, analysis it to find the steps needed to get there and goes out and does the work that is needed to make the vision he has a reality.

The truth is that you do not have to be a super-genius to do what you want to do. All you have to do is get out and do the work. Stop making excuses and spending hours stalling by scrolling on various feeds and get out and take steps towards your goal. With hard work and dedication, everything is possible.

In our high speed, high-stress day-to-day lives it is hard not to worry. We worry about small and big things, whether they have an impact on us now or later. I think we are all aware of it but sometimes you just get these groundbreaking realizations. Something happened at the beginning of this week and I want to continue thinking in the same tracks for the time to come; I realized that worrying simply does not help us in any way. It is the other way around, as soon as we stop worrying, the easier it is for our lives to take their shape.

Whether we know it or no we are always attached to something, a feeling or an object that projects some kind of feeling when in your possession. I am aware that it is hard to let go of things that are dear to you, even though you know that it does more harm than good to you.

I have had this problem with chasing a feeling for as long as I can remember because I have always been a dreamer. In this particular situation, it is the fact that I always seem to fall for the idea behind something or someone before knowing the full story. But I let it go, organically and a weight just lifted off my shoulders.

It is true what they say. The best things do happen unexpectedly. Of course, this is not me telling you not to take steps into the direction you want to go but rather that you stop putting so much energy on the pursuit and let it come when it is meant to.

There is no need to worry if you are sure about what you want with your life because you are the person that makes it all come to life.

Sincerely,

So, it has been awhile. Honestly, it feels like I have written this same post at least three times in the course of the past four years I have had this blog. Life gets in the way so easily and time slips through our fingers.

I guess where I want to come with this is the fact that people do stuff because they feel as though they have to and not because they necessarily want to. There is this immense pressure that pushes us into a zombie-like state that keeps us going through our daily lives. And yes, I am aware that this might turn out to be yet again, one of those sappy blog posts that I used to write but it is quite honestly the way I look at life.

Ever since before I started writing and blogging on the internet I have had this huge passion and love for expressing myself and feelings in the form of words. Everything just feels so much easier when it is written down but I think I came to that point where I forced myself to write at least one post once a week and just go with a set schedule, even though it did not feel right. I was either writing from force or I was writing the exact same thing that I was always writing. I got lost in the pressure, in the need, and in the numbers.

The truth is I do not have that many readers as some might think despite the fact that I have my own domain and I started my blog not caring about who was reading. I just wanted to get my thoughts out there and maybe help encourage people to follow their own path in life. But somewhere I got lost in the world of the internet and the numbers that it presented to me.

This is me saying I am sorry for getting lost and for losing my purpose in writing. I am back but I am not going to force anything out of me, meaning that there will most probably be an irregular post. I am young and I am still finding my path but my writing will always be there, the way I want it to be.

 

Sincerely,

Melissa
