How many times have we wished we were other people, living in another city/ country; working our dream jobs, doing different things and being happy?
How many times have we wished a moment, opportunity or event away?
I’m not one for star signs but I’ve read a couple. Being a piscean, the stars deem us as day dreamers. We apparently live in fantasy worlds…
I can’t say that they’re entirely wrong, because I always envision myself at the end of a goal I’d wanna achieve. I think of things that have never happened that I’d like to happen and envision the beautiful and in most cases, cliched endings.
There’s nothing wrong with this provided that it doesn’t consume you and wastes times.
I’ve learnt along the way that there is no perfect life or job. You can’t choose your family and the people you work with will always be. Ive learnt that the grass is only greener on the other side because it is well maintained and not coz the weather is better or there’s something different in the water.
I’ve also learnt that there is no place like home and you literally have the choice to make the best of what you have, when you have it, wherever you have it and with whom you have it.
I came across this quote and boy did it remind me of a lot and put so much into perspective.
” Bloom wherever you’re planted”
Be you wherever life takes you. Bloom and shine like the star that you are. Far too often we feel like we need to conform. Like we’re inadequate. We feel like we’re not good enough and then mimic ridiculous behavior.
It’s okay to dream, it’s okay to envision but not at the expense of you dulling your own sparkle.
It needs to stop. Now.
Be authentic, be-YOU-titul and bloom wherever you’re planted; in school, at that call centre you working at, in retail, at court, on a field, in the board room, heck just bloom.
I cannot stress the importance of learning to love yourself so that you know your capabilities, and then become comfortable enough with them.
