“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates

When life throws you curveballs, as it will, time and time again, just remember that this shit is normal. I cannot recall the last time I was actually prepared for any significant change but, more often than not, with change comes something magical and completely unexpected.

If things start to feel off kilter…adjust. Don’t feel obligated to explain your decisions to anyone. People may love you and have your best interest at heart, but nobody knows you the way that you do. Never be swayed.

Without uncertainty there is no such thing as adventure. If something seems right deep down in your soul, it probably is…or at least it has the potential to be.

Personally, I’ve never really followed a traditional path, nor have I felt a desire to. But I love my weird, tumultuous life! Sure, I cried hysterically in the shower for 20 minutes this morning and I am not even sure why but, damn, it felt good. And then I got out, wiped my tears, got dressed, and had an amazing day.

It is important to commit to things, and sometimes the most important commitments are the ones we make to ourselves. If things don’t work out right away…modify. You don’t need to give up if things don’t go according to plan, you just need to show up and keep on moving forward.

    I agree on EVERY single word and it’s as if I wrote them myself… I have never lived by the “rules” or a usual pattern that most people do live by. I have unfortunately always felt that I do need to keep on explaining myself and my choices to people so that they would understand why I choose to be different and do things in my own way but luckily I’ve learned that, just like you wrote, sometimes, the best commitments are the ones that you make to yourself.
    So, no explaining, no overthinking, just living and being me! :)
