It’s all in your head. When you try to change, but you can’t. What holds you back from being the person you want to become? Who stops you? You do. We all have the capacity to be better people, we just need to allow ourselves.
Sometimes I literally stop myself from doing more. I stop myself for no reason at all, other than I told myself to. Why do I stop myself from accomplishing things? Why do any of us? It’s that little voice that tells us we did enough – true or not we don’t need to listen. That’s why it’s all in your head. You don’t need to listen, you don’t need to hold yourself back. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to, your only limitation is you.
I forget that I am the only thing holding myself back, but I make up for it with excuses why I can’t do all the things I set out for. It’s true, sometimes we just expect way too much of ourselves. I think sometimes that is what stresses me out is that I just want to do too much in the first place – but then again anything is possible so if I want it badly enough, I know I can achieve it. Regardless, I shouldn’t be down on myself for not getting things done, life is too short for that. Neither should you.
The best advice I can give you right at this very second is to take life one moment at a time. That’s what I am doing right now as I sit here writing – I wish I could show you what this moment is like. And I think about all the things I want to do, all the things I have to do, things I need, so many things. But then sometimes I stop thinking about all these things, because it’s overwhelming and in thinking about these things I forget about the most important thing, which is the thing that is right now, this moment here.
You will accomplish everything you can, you will get to where you need to be, you will be successful, you will be happy – you will. We are so damn hard on ourselves all the time, thinking about the future, the past, our goals, thinking about what we didn’t do, what we should do. So much of what you think you aren’t is all in your head. Nothing you want to accomplish is going to happen all at once, things take time. Don’t forget to trust that life is going to fall into place, all you can do is take it one moment at a time and just keep moving.
