How incredibly paralyzing is the statement, “What’s mean to be is what’s meant to be“? When I hear someone say that, what I hear is, I don’t deserve to get what I want or worse, I’m too afraid to go after what I want, and so, I’ll just be complacent and hope no one notices. I will tell everyone that I actually believe I have no control over my fate and I hope they believe it because the thought of taking fate into my own hands terrifies me. Sound familiar? The next time you hear someone say that, you be sure to tell them….
Nothing is meant to be, you make it be, your fate is not scribbled on some ledger. Don’t accept patterns in your life that make you unhappy. And don’t settle for living vicariously through other peoples happy lives.
Find the strength to go through the ugly moments when you feel alone, hopeless and you feel like maybe you took things one step too far,…it’s when you get over that summit, that you realize that you have been settling this whole time and you will kick yourself for not taking charge sooner. When you embark on the unknown, there is always fear, that is perfectly normal, but don’t let fear stop you.
Photo’s above are a bunch of random pictures I took at this beach this past weekend! I’m officially a creeper at the beach with my zoom lens :-p
