Looking back on growing up, and looking forward to family vacations or spending a day with a close friend that you haven't seen for a while was always something I looked forward to when I was younger. For many of my friends, sometimes "family vacations" weren't a thing, and looking forward to anything meant a disaster... in their terms.

So, as fortunate as I was to grow up with amazing, successful parents, I didn't just see the bigger picture at a young age, I saw the beauty and felt the adrenaline rush on how a small simple plan or hangout can make yourself automatically driven, feel and want to get through the week.

Which clicked in my mind... that we humans live for purpose. Whatever that purpose may be, we search for it, we guess it, we do a test and trial period for what makes us tick and what makes us expand our happiness throughout our life and as we get older, we tend to look back on good or bad memories and reflect sometimes on a certain memory that can make you feel a rush of different emotions.

The beautiful thing is to always remember, even when you're having an awful day or awful week, is that you have the power to think and feel different within a split second.

The beauty of life is everywhere, and we are just figures in this huge board game of life. Motivating yourself, and having the mental strength to go on about your day. Every day is a full-blown accomplishment.

Not many people have the self-discipline to really push themselves out there in this world, in this life.

With so much distraction, insecurities, opinions, and such a diverse range of humans, we all tend to compare and tend to wonder why and what is my purpose in this world?

We are "matter," we are a range of atoms, and we are a living species that gets so much crap for being on social media, on our phone, tablets, answering a call, checking an e-mail. Everything is run on technology, so our minds are constantly consumed. Consumed not just by technology, but our own thoughts, our opinions of ourselves that eat us alive at night and our accomplishments that help us rest easy, every day.

You are made to be here.

We are only human. Looking forward to small things you have planned for your night or even huge plans. They always keep us guessing and mark our next chess move for life. Motivation has become the key element for a successful future, and a complete game changer for the people who follow a simple routine and are not feeling as much love as they should.

I started to set goals, and whip out a planner to organize my week-to-week schedule. I write everything I will accomplish at an exact time and place and the best part to checking off as your day goes by is that you see the end result (leaning towards the end of a day), which could be a hot bath with your favorite bath bomb, Netflix movie marathon for an hour, or reading a favorite book you read when you were little. We don't need one another or co-dependency to feel loved every day.

We don't need someone who will reply at our fingertips via text, and we certainly don't need a special "vice" to make us feel accomplished and successful as we are just learning how the world works. Through our own eyes and own fingertips. So look beyond, and push to keep moving forward, because you're the only one in charge of what kind of ending you pick for your story at the end of your life to tell others. There is beauty everywhere, just take a look and love the sky, love your own piece of the world you are in now.

Everything changes, and we will too, but our hearts will forever stay the same, and feel the same.
