Over the years of travelling back and fourth, around and across as I am rounding off another year in my twenties, I can honestly say I have truly discovered personal happiness no matter where I am in the world. Something so simple to say yet I feel as if many are on that quest at different points in their lives. Self love and appreciation is one of the most important things in the world, it reminds you what you deserve out of life, who you deserve to spend your time with, and motivates you to follow your intuition and dreams.
You are not where you came from, and not who people say your “supposed” to be. You can do anything you want in life, if you believe in yourself and trust you are doing things for the right reasons. One thing I can say is to find the best version of yourself you must be true to who you are as a person, practice forgiveness, follow your bliss, and ACCEPT YOUR PAST.
What ever may have happened, what you may have done, or what has happened to you, you must accept it in order to move forward. Many of us can get mentally stuck in our previous habits and time periods of life, which doesn’t simply allow us to move forward. Each one of us has the power to change, mentally and physically but you must want that change and believe you are capable of doing so. And let me tell you that if you can’t accept your flaws and previous mistakes they will carry forward in your life, and you will be dragging around an invisible suitcase full of doubt, trust issues, and self pity. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, a field in Africa, a private yacht in Croatia or a plane heading to your next escape… if you aren’t happy with who you are as a person, you will never seek the full happiness that life has to offer.
The downfall of social media, is the front everyone puts forward as to what they’re live is like, which subconsciously makes many people compare themselves to the over edited photos posted online. The only person you should strive to be better, is the person you were yesterday. Focus on YOU, your life and your emotions and in time you will find happiness in the smallest things.
