Taking shots like this really opens my perspective on life and how small some things aren’t worthy to fuss over.
Old friendships, small weight gain or loss, useless politicians. You know where i’m going with this. Those little things that may annoy you drastically from day to day. The toxic lust that poisons our minds. How it changes what we do and how we do it.
These things aren’t worthy to fuss over. Let them go! I saw a tweet yesterday along the lines of:
If often baffles me when I see things like this. But then I remember to myself, I use to think like this, too.
Things that aren’t worth fighting over, eventually needs to be let go. Stop wasting precious life time and start being more proactive with it. Go for a run, even if you hate running. Get back into that thing you once loved doing like painting or drawing. Listen to music in your bathtub and get high off of essential oils. (Diffuse those thoughts, boo). There’s no point in putting a ton of energy into someone or something if you feel that you deserve reciprocation, and aren’t getting it. No more guilt trips, just – let it go.
More time for you and less time for others who don’t deserve your precious time. It’s a simple and very giving formula. We have to learn how to love and appreciate ourselves before we can even think about offering help to others. This is something that does take lots of time to grasp if you’re the kind of person to often help others before yourself, like I once use to do religiously.
I think it’s beautifully ironic how quintessential something can be for people who haven’t seen the internal dilemmas. My picture of this beach for a great example. Many people would see this and say to themselves, “OMG PARADISE TAKE ME THERE, it literally looks perfect!” Yeah, it does look perfect. Looks can often be deceiving, babes (think catfish).
We often forget that places, people and things all have one thing in common. They have problems. Some bigger than others, some smaller, but they all have exactly that in common – problems. I.e. as stated previously, old friendships, places and useless politicians.
The grass is always greener on the other side they say, but the funny thing is; the grass will always be greener on the other side, where you are and however you look at it. Take pride in what you have, cherish it while you have it, and never forget what you can lose. Make your grass green. Or in an islanders case, your ocean blue.
