Why Stop Now?

Hey You, it’s a beautiful Monday morning and you are either on your way to work, school, going to drop off your kids or a sibling, who knows, you might even just be home, but whatever it is, we all know that new week feeling, that particular vibe. Sometimes we ask ourselves if we are doing it all right, or if we are even doing anything at all, no one knows the answer, well…maybe you do, maybe you don’t, but one thing is certain, the moment you don’t stop, the moment you choose to keep going, you will realize you are a step closer to whatever it is you’ve always wanted, whatever it is you’ve always prayed for, whatever it is you’ve always silently asked the universe for. 

Though, sometimes it feels like nothing is working out right, like the world is against you, like you are unlucky or you are just hopeless, but no, things are working out and you just don’t pay enough attention to see them, they are just so minute they go unnoticed, the world is not against you, you are not unlucky and it most definitely would work out. Think of the times you were so desperate for the things you have now, things you probably didn’t even remember to be thankful for, take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come and you’ll realize how much further you can go and how much better you can do, if you can get to where you are right now, who can stop you from the rest of your amazing dreams? 

You just don’t stop, keep working, keep dreaming, keep claiming it, who knows, the universe might just come to terms with it. Believe it and the world will come around. Remember, if anyone can, why not you?

You’ve come too far to stop, and if you haven’t started, it’s okay, now is always a good time to snap out of whatever it is and get started. 

I once read somewhere that you should do whatever you have to do tomorrow today, and whatever you have to do today, do it NOW!

So, don’t forget, It’s too early to give up, and wayyyy too late to quit…. well, something like that… lool

Don’t let the new week get to you, there’s another in 7 days, it should inspire you not depress you, motivate you and not weaken you, just keep moving, crawl, walk, jump, run or fly if you can, you just don’t stop moving.

Who knows, you might just be a second away from your fireworks, why stop now!

Life Is Not Bright Yellow

Hey people, hope you had a good and productive week…

So a few days ago, my friends and I found ourselves talking about a lot of things and what we think about them, and at some point we came to the conclusion that life is just…. I don’t know, life is life.

So many times we find ourselves asking certain questions we know have no particular answers, but we ask anyway, hoping for once there could be some sort of clarity to a very cloudy situation…sadly, there are no rules, no guidance, no handbooks. 

No right or wrong sometimes, no options other times, you grow up with some principle you’d defend with a gun to your head, only to reach a particular phase of your life and realize it goes deeper than those principles, or at the very least, it’s mere theory and you can’t exactly do anything with them but to go by the waves of the world you live in and dance to the tune, whether or not it’s of your favorite genre.

As beautiful and magical as the birth of a new born is, have you ever wondered why their first reaction is wailing? I suppose even they know what they just got into, and no matter how much you love a child, you hope to God he/she will come out and literally scream their lungs out just like their pairs. The world is not a place you come into with a smile or some loud laughter….what’s funny anyway? And it doesn’t get easier, it never does. Some do everything it takes and only take a few steps, yet some make a ”few” calculations and fly higher than you’ve ever witnessed, a few of us play by the books and do okay, yet some others just do as they please and go beyond! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying some people don’t deserve what they get or the “few” calculations they make does not take everything they have, all I’m  trying to say is there are no particular rules to how life works and how to achieve your desires, different people bear different crosses and those you think have it easy probably just spent their last dime with the brightest smile on their faces. 

We live in a world where you can’t be strict on rules, yet you can’t be found not adhering to them, you won’t always have an explanation, yet you can’t be caught speechless, you are not given options, yet you have to make a wise choice.

You won’t always understand life, you might not always see reasons, what you know won’t always be the only truth, and those you know won’t always be your only salvation, you’ll grow, you’ll change, you’ll live. Just know, life has never really been black or white, won’t it be amazing if it was bright yellow? 

But no, it’s mostly gray my darling….Gray!

Yours…
