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,

Something that keeps driving us forward is the way we seem to care about a thing. We never want to overstep because it could mean something bad if it happens too fast or in the opposite way you had hoped everything will play out.

There is this little voice in our heads saying that whatever we do will have a significant say in what will happen in our lives, good or bad. Of course, it could be the case but how many times does it actually happen? Even though we always seem to be able to tell ourselves that we only have one chance there is only a select moment that cannot be re-done better and in the correct way. Just because you mess up it does not mean that your life just falls into pieces, rather, you learn and know what you are doing wrong.

At times it takes more than making that same mistake once to understand what you are doing wrong and that you should not be doing it. Sometimes it takes more time to learn than other times.

I am not writing this because I am fearless but because I might be one of the people who is most affected by caring too much.
Just because you believe that you are someone who does not care does not make you one. I learned that the hard way. No matter how little or how big the deed is I find myself paralyzed at times, unable to make a move even though I know that it is when I take that loop that the best things happen in my life. I am well aware that the best things happen outside of your comfort zone yet I find myself in a minor heart attack every time I take a leap because I care way too much.

The reason I write this for you is that not only do I want to better myself, careless and live more I want you to learn from my experiences because they are the only things I am an expert on. This is just me telling you that the world will not end because you sign up for something that may potentially fail. Whatever you may do might better you and your life, no matter what it is. And if it does not better your life you can always get up, brush the dirt off of yourself and start again because you are stronger than you think.

Sincerely,
Melissa

Something came up in my life that I never in a million years thought would resurface. It was something that strongly reminded myself both of how much I have and how much I haven’t changed. It’s like the world was playing with the way that I used to feel and the situation I was on. Looking back at it was all so abstract.

There are so many times in life when you look back and you just realize how different you are, how much you have grown as a person but there is always a part of your past-self that is whispering forbidden words into your ear. Maybe you aren’t so different after all.

It is so easy to call yourself stupid for what you once thought or felt but as soon as you put yourself back into those same shoes it all makes sense, almost as if you are sucked back into the same situation you hated with all of your heart.

Think about it this way; you learn and grow every day, no matter the situation that decided to show up again. You’ll be presented with two options when it happens, either you smile, laugh and let go or you stop in the middle of your tracks and just think about how things would have played out if it would have gone the way you wanted.

But it didn’t and you survived. Everything happens for a reason and the fact that the reminder might have popped up might have just been to show you how much you have grown or to give you a glimpse of what is to come. Never look down upon yourself, past, present or future.

Sincerely,

(This is not a sales pitch though it might sound like one.)

The law of attraction, a subject that has broadly been spoken about throughout the years, especially since The Secret came out. Some people might feel as though it might be stupid and others might believe in it all heartily as I do. But what is it?

The law of attraction is the concept of you being able to shape your life by the positivity of your thoughts, something that may seem like something hard to grasp. It might seem like a concept that is out of this world and one only for the optimists of this world. How many times have you thought about something and it just pops in front of you out of thin air? It has all happened at one time or another. This is the Law of Attraction at work, doing its thing and bringing whatever you summoned into your life to you.

Many of you might have already stopped reading because it sounds like hippie talk, something that I once thought too until I thought a bit harder. Whenever I thought about something really hard, I thought about it truly happening it did and it seems to be the only (somewhat) logical answer. This is exactly why the happy people around us always seem to have the most positive outlook on life because they have attracted it all into their lives.

I know it sounds weird but you truly have to look deep within yourself and search for answers to have a better life. You have to learn to put time aside to just be with yourself and do whatever makes you feel better. When you start setting that regular time aside for yourself you will notice how you grow more and more thankful for everything around you, making you happy for what you have. Thus your life will be more positive because you are letting your positivity sine through.

As said so many times before, you have the power to make your dream life, no matter what. You just have to set time aside to shape your life. Be conscious and make every single second of your life count.
