What do you want to become?
This is a question we are frequently asked when we were younger. We answered with all the innocence we could muster. It’s 10 years now, and what have you really achieved?
This question can rush past memories into our conscious mind, reminding us of all the opportunities we missed and the various things we failed at.
You’re in your 20’s or maybe in your 30’s, and already feel defeated, almost giving up. You feel you’ve hit rock-bottom, “life is unfair” you tell yourself. You’re at the verge of shutting down your life or even committing suicide because you don’t think this life is worth living.
I’m here to tell you to just wait, don’t do it; don’t give up yet. I want you to know that there are thousands of people out there feeling the same way, including me, writing this to you. The feeling of loneliness, rejection, disappoints and lost hopes reign in our hearts.
Make a Choice Today
But I have made a choice today and I hope you also make same; to give life one more chance, to immerse myself one more time, to give it my all this time.
I have made a choice to step-out, be of service in any way I can and to give as much as I can to those who are less fortunate than me.
I have made a choice, to journal from today, every little good thing that happens in my life and to be grateful for the little grace I receive every day.
I have made a choice to look within me and find out what I can offer to the world. I want to live with a purpose, and to do what my life has been destined to become.
I have made a choice not to wallow in self-pity nor bellow with rage about the unfortunate things happening to me.
Decide to Give it Your All
I decide today, to take the time to understand who I am as a person; my hopes and aspirations. To find out what my strength is; to put all the effort I can summon up within myself; working day-after-day until I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I decide today, not to be envious of what others have worked to achieve, but encourage myself that what others I’ve done, I can do same and even be more. I will seek to look at the many blessings in my life and count the many grace the universe has showered on me.
I will do all this until there is no more strength left within me. And if after all this, I still fail and never find within me the peace and happiness I so much desire, I will depart this world, knowing that I gave myself one more chance. I gave it my all; with my last breath and the talent planted in me.
My friend, you can live your dreams if you make this choice with me ,don’t give up yet until you have given life your all.
