The feeling of finally realizing what you want to do with your life

It feels very much like falling in love.

You keep on thinking about it and you get so excited about all the things you’re going to do that it’s sometimes just so difficult to fall asleep at night.
You fantasize and daydream how certain things will play out.
Everything just seems brighter.
You will find a smile creep up on your face randomly throughout the day for no particular reason.
Life feels more worthwhile and adventurous.
You feel so damn alive.
You look forward to every day.
People notice the glow in your face.
You feel like you can conquer the impossible.
Motivation and inspiration come in an endless supply.

I am in love.

To Love with Your 100%

Always, always, always, love with an open heart. Love without any expectations! Love with your 100%. This is one of the most important lessons I’ve learned thus far in life. No matter how hurt you’ve been in the past, don’t let the trauma dim your light and ability to love without holding back. If you notice that the other person feels guarded and isn’t giving their 100% don’t mind that, be brave and be the first to initiate it and give them your love 100%. I promise you they will come around. ¬†It’s all just a matter of time. Someone’s got to be the more courageous one and it might as well be you. You can’t ever experience the maximum potential of a relationship unless you’re giving it your 100%. Logically¬†and technically, you can’t, am I right? We only live once so might as well take the plunge and see how things play out.

I am so very grateful and appreciative for all the people I love and the ones that love me back!
