Hope You Know That You Are Doing Better Than You Think You Are

This is a guest post.

Even if you don’t see it, you are doing better than you give yourself credit for. Even if you have no idea what’s going on or where you’re supposed to be, you are doing better than you think you are. Even if you don’t feel it, peace surrounds you.

You are not failing if you are trying your best. You are not failing if the results you want aren’t showing right now. Even if decisions you make now affect you later negatively, in the end it will be okay anyway. Choose your truth over fear. Choose to step out on your own, knowing that whenever you need support, someone will be there. Choose to choose yourself over anyone else.

What is best for you will find you. What is meant to be will come to be. Life is a rhythm of highs and lows and in-betweens, but it is all apart of your story. It all matters. Because even if something isn’t meant to happen, redemption and healing can always happen. Mistakes can always be forgiven. Freedom can always be found.

You are free to be whoever you dream to be. You are deeply loved through it all. At the end of the day what matters most is how we make other people feel, how we impact them, how we make their life a little bit brighter every moment we have with them. Money matters, but not the most. Pleasure matters, but not the most. Connection matters. Memories matter. Laughter matters. You matter.

Always give yourself credit for the little improvement you make in life. It is very important for you to acknowledge this to motivate you to keep going.

Remember This When You’re Searching For Yourself

This is a guest post.

The truth is, you always find yourself something missing. There is no perfect state for you to feel complete, all the time.

The truth is, you always find yourself lost somewhere in the middle of nowhere. No matter how far you go, no matter how deep you went through, you are lost.

The truth is, you always find yourself being so empty. Even though you feel like you have everything you want, you feel torn apart.

Deep down inside, we are always searching for affection. No matter how we seek independence, we don’t want to be alone.

At the end of the day, it’s not about what is right or wrong, what is true or false.

What matters most is the sense of being we have when we have strong faith on something we cannot see.

We are trying to hold on to something we cannot predict even though we are afraid of knowing the fact that fantasies cannot really protect us, but it will definitely saves us from our dreadful thoughts.

It’s all about the connection we make to other people, community, nature, other living things or to the omnipotent. It’s all about how we feel through the links we created with the outside world.

It’s not about the power anymore, nor belonging, nor the truth. It’s about how much love you give to this world full of darkness, to the people you care, to the things you want to see growing.

If these will make you feel more alive, then follow its path.

Because no matter how you conform in the place you belong to, you will always find something is “missing” if you are not allowing yourself to find your own calling.
