In this time of our youth, many of us are facing changing realities. We awake to a different morning - a different path - and hope to hell that we make it. We’re ever changing with our emotions and situations that it may cause us to lose ourselves in the mess of life.
And then one day we wake up. We wake up and nothing has changed.
We just realize that it was only us that changed. That we adapted into who we think we need/want to be. We realize that we bought a whole new wardrobe not because we thought we should stick with the crazed crop-top trend that is happening (seriously, why? Some curvy girls can’t rock that and would love to see other things, retail stores), but because we wanted to be that person that can rock jeans and a basic t-shirt but still feel confident with a kickass pair of heels. We rearrange and rearrange again because we like the change that has happened within us and want to express it through everything we have. We kick toxic people out of lives because we are finally so sick of their negativity and we see that they’re only bringing us down.
And, let me tell you something; we feel good.
We finally feel like we’re getting somewhere on our own. We can see the person we’ve always dreamed of being but never though it could be a reality. We see big things happening in our future, and we’re so stoked to be heading in the right direction that leads us right to them.
We can see that yes, we are young. And yes, we will make mistakes. But we embrace them. We collect them and learn. We adapt.
We are fighters. We are the adapters. We are the changing revolution of the world.
And, damn. Does it feel good to know where we stand.
how are these created I want to make one
i’ve never reblogged something so quickly
did anyone else lose their shit over this part?
Everyone is always saying, “New year, new me.” Why? Why have a new “you” when you’re already at your best?
I get that we all have skeletons in our closets that we would like to erase, and that we have mistakes that we would like to forget ever happened. But why? In reality, those are what makes us us. We wouldn’t be who we are today without them, and, with a new year, we have the ability to thrive off those skeletons and mistakes and understand that you don’t need to forget about them. We realize that we can live with them, grow with them, until they’re almost completely gone. Why? Because they become a part of our souls.
That is one of the most beautiful things about our lives. We are able to overcome so much in so little time by just accepting who we are. Yes, buying a new gym membership to get in shape and lose those few extra pounds we put on is nice. But, in the long run, all we really need out of this new year is acceptance. Acceptance of who we truly are, ghosts, skeletons, mistakes, and all.
So, my resolution isn’t a new me. Just me as I am, faults and all.
