Take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. You’re doing just fine.
I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.
A little over a year ago, I moved to the United States from halfway across the globe. I had no plan, no money and knew one person in the entire country. I did it because I knew it was now or never, because I couldn’t achieve my dreams by remaining where I was. It was a huge change and extremely difficult and I’m still struggling today, but my vision is bigger than the obstacles and I know I can get through this. I just felt like posting this for anyone who’s going through a change in their life or debating whether or not to make one. The journey to your dreams is unmapped, you’ll never know what road to take and whether the path you traveled is the right. You can only keep moving forward and never look back to the place you came from and the person you were back then. Stay positive and keep dreaming ✨ #PositiveNation
Nobody owes us. What’s sad is we think that if we do something, we deserve that thing to be reciprocated back to us. But once things are done, they’re done. There’s no going back, not even if we want there to be. All we can do is look ahead.
