I’m starting to look back on a lot of times in my life where I asked myself “does it get better?” And the answer is:
Yes. It gets better.
You get better.
The people you surround yourself with get better.
The people you fall in love with gets better.
Everything gets better.
You find strength in every struggle.
I’m so not afraid to tell people I don’t have it altogether. I thought I had it all figured out at one point and I didn’t. So I had to dissemble my entire life and put it back together. I had to unlearn everything I ever thought I knew. I had to let go of anything and anyone that countered my evolution. I had to get to know myself all over again. And in that process I realized that all those things we dream about like peace, joy, and happiness are found in the simplest things in life instead of everyone else’s grand idea of what your life should look like or how poppin you should be.
And soul mates?
I thank God every day that I didn’t settle.
Because the old me would have attracted a different type of Him, and that different him I would have likely outgrown.
Sometimes you have to take time off from dating, trying to chase the ideal relationship and forcing people to see how amazing you are, and recognize those things in yourself first. To fill your days with things you enjoy, versus things and people you don’t. To love up on and appreciate who you are in a sea of criticism, studies and reports telling you what you are not. Because when you get to that place of freedom, that’s when you attract and manifest what is for you, the friends that are for you, the career that is for you and ultimately the love that is for you…
–And that’s where true happiness lies.
I admit that I love to force things to happen as a result of wanting to control my life but I’ve been taking a back seat to patience and faith lately, and as a result, I’m enjoying every minute of the slow ride.
