I almost let this happen.
I almost settled instead of going after my dreams and following the path I knew I was supposed to stay on. I didn’t, though, and that’s something I will always be proud of myself for.
I see all these people who give up what they really want because it is deemed as unrealistic or impractical or downright stupid in other’s eyes—and it breaks my heart.
Despite what anyone says, you have to remember that you are doing this for you.
This is your life. These are your choices. You deserve to be happy and you deserve to know what it’s like to pursue what you love.
Don’t lose yourself in trying to please everyone else, remember who you are and where you came from. Nobody else has to offer the world what you do. Embrace yourself and live your life to the fullest—be the light you wish to see.
