Stop Looking For The Life You've Always Imagined

When you think about it, it's kinda crazy how everybody's life is different. It's pretty amazing, but it's super weird to think about. Everyone has different thoughts, goals, dreams, wishes, mistakes, adventures, and emotions. People might have similar ones of those, but there will always be something different. Still there is one thing that we all need to be able to feel those emotions, learn from those mistakes, form those dreams, wishes, and goals, and seek those adventures. We all need to experience life.

Writing this right now I know I am extremely blest. I have been given this incredible life and it's up to me to live it to my best abilities. I can tell you that I don't always feel that way. Sometimes I forget the beauty of this world and how incredible my life is. Such a shame, but I'm not perfect, far from that actually. 2019 has been the hardest year of my life, but I'm here, working on myself so I can refocus on my dreams and goals. I'm learning from my mistakes and I can't wait to see what else I learn from the mistakes I make in the future. I'm excited for the adventures I've always wanted. And I'm trying to embrace every emotion that comes my way.

It's funny how sometimes life just hits you. It's always in the most unexpected ways and at the most unexpected times. Life has been hitting me lately and it could not have come at a better time. I've needed a new beginning for quite some time and I feel like this is the start of it. All the hardships that I have dealt with have lead to some pretty incredible and eye-opening things. I've explored new cities, I've seen the struggles of people I don't even know, I've learned how to persevere, I've met some pretty incredible people. I don't know for sure but I'm guessing none of those things would have happened if I wasn't given this life. Yes, I would've met other people, seen other places, learned from other things. But that's not my life.

I'm trying to find me, I'm trying to find out what I want. I'm experiencing life. Not everything has to come from hardships either though. I've experienced life by traveling to new countries, going to college and meeting new people, going on adventures with friends, going to concerts, working, trying new food, driving a car, or by simply reading a new book. Life is meant to be lived and experienced. Find what sets your soul on fire, find yourself.

I'm no expert, but I'm sure everyone wants to live a full and memorable life. And a full and memorable life looks different for everyone. Stop looking around thinking that the answer will jump out right in front of you because it won't. This is all on you. The life you have imagined for yourself is right in front of you, but you have to pursue it. You might change your mind, what you thought you wanted might not be anymore and that's perfectly okay. But the only way for you to fully figure that out is by going out and experiencing life.
