In a few weeks, 2018 will already end.
If you ask me, it went by too fast. There are still so many things I thought I could do this year that I haven't done yet. In my head I had painted this idealistic picture of where I want to be by the time the year ends. So like as 2018 draws nearer, I became more and more frustrated at myself for not being there yet. And now that I think about it, it wasn't a realistic goal at all.
Haha. Call me naïve.
My subconscious is a bossy bitch who gets easily swayed by articles like "How to be successful during your 20's" etc etc., and likes to impose the successful experiences of others onto myself. As a result, I constantly feel pressured to always act, to always compare myself to others that it becomes an unhealthy state of mind. And I find myself constantly frustrated and emotional. I started to lose my sense of purpose and the enjoyment of the process. Raise your hand if you're experiencing the same thing. 🙌
Fortunately, I have a strong support group who I can talk to during those times when pressure is eating me up. Family and friends who constantly remind me of the things I achieved this year no matter how big or small they are and to take the future one step at a time.
My dad would constantly tell me that everyone has their own time and place in this world. The most important thing is to have confidence in who you are, have a grateful heart, and know deep inside that one day you'll become the person you want to be. Just keep moving steadily and calmly at your own pace. You'll get there one day. :) Hope you're all having a good day/evening. ☀️💕
