Find The Light

{San Luis Obispo, California}

Sometimes in the darkest moments, it’s hard to imagine that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.  Friends, family, or therapists may try and provide reassurance that life gets better, things get better, fate will lead you to something better, and that you deserve better.  Such thoughts sound so passive in nature, as if we have to wait and rely on fate or other external factors, rather than rely on ourselves, in order to see any change and progress.  I’ve become more proactive lately and in some ways feel as if I’m cleansing myself of any major factors in my life that have suppressed me in any way because, frankly, I’m tired of living a life filled with constraints.  However, more often the restraints we have are those placed upon ourselves.  I know my writing in this post may sound vague, but the ultimate point I’m trying to make is that only you can set yourself free of anything in life that makes you feel trapped.  The imperative tool needed is the courage to advocate for yourself and take action instead of being a passive bystander in your own life.  Have a wonderful weekend.

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
