In 30 years from now, I don’t want to realize I had to settle for less (take action, right now)

I finally found the time to write. I finally found the time to sit down and let it out. I felt so uninspired lately but I had so much on my mind. I wasn’t sure whether I would be able to write one article or a couple of them. There’s so much going on in my mind, so many different things but somehow they’re all connected.

In 30 years from now, I don’t want to be that person who’s looking back – thinking “what if?”

My so-called winter depression is coming closer. Spring is that exciting season where summer is right around the corner. Summer is meant to be lived. Wild and free. Fall makes you realize how quickly something can change. Growing older is a scary thought. Watching your life passing by is even worse. In 30 years from now, I don’t want to be that person who’s looking back – thinking “what if?” What if I would’ve chosen a different job, other friends, place to live, person to be with and so on? I don’t want to settle for something. In 30 years from now, I want to be proud of myself and I want to be proud of the things I achieved. I don’t want to look back and realize I had to settle for less.

I started this year with a lot of plans, not knowing that none of it would actually work out

It’s October now, which means it’s time to look back but it’s also time to look forward. Looking back, I ended up making a lot of decisions this year, not knowing if I was making the right decision. I thought things would’ve changed by now but turns out nothing has changed at all. I started this year with a lot of plans, not realizing that none of it would actually work out. I didn’t think I would end up spending a ridiculous amount of money on a last minute plane ticket to travel half across the world and I definitely didn’t think I would do it more than once. Yes I hear you – I must be crazy. Turns out I am – I am crazy. I also didn’t think I would end up losing a job I’ve been dreaming of my entire life and I didn’t think I would start making plans to move abroad… but here we are.

Life’s about finding yourself, creating yourself and becoming the best version of yourself

Life’s not meant to be lived. It’s meant to be created. It’s not about waiting and finding the perfect job, the perfect place or the perfect person. It’s more than that. It’s about finding yourself, creating yourself and becoming the best version of yourself. It’s a journey and it’s not about the destination. This is your journey – make it count. Make it the best one yet and take control because there won’t be a second chance to make things right.

Life’s not about other people or one person in particular. Well, maybe it is – it’s about you. You’re that one person. Don’t be afraid to be selfish sometimes. Don’t put other people first. Put yourself first. Think about your happiness. Think about your goals and start working towards those goals. Start today. Start right now. It might be the wrong moment and the situation might not be ideal – but will it ever be ideal? Will it ever be the right moment? Does perfection exist?

Life’s too short and it’s not waiting for you.
