The greatest things in life should always be simple. Happiness, love, friendship. It doesn’t need to be complicated – and if it is, it’s because we made it that way. Because we’ve put too much effort into defining it and trying to see a future that we could never even hope to guess at. Because we’re afraid of making mistakes or afraid to feel or maybe afraid to just let go.
Fear is the biggest complication in your life. It can and will ruin even what was destined to be great.
If we all lived in this moment, yes, this one – the one where you’re reading this. The one where I’m writing it. We’d be so busy living for today that we wouldn’t have time to worry about tomorrow.
If you’re waiting for something – stop waiting. Find it. If you want it badly enough, right now should be the moment that you search for it. What is the point in waiting until tomorrow since you can’t possibly know what tomorrow will hold?
Stop looking at what could go wrong, at what you could lose – strip away the things that don’t matter. Let go of the fear. Look past the complications that you have fabricated – they don’t mean anything. They’re just roadblocks preventing you from having whatever it is that you really want.
If the path you’re on has gotten too rocky, take a shortcut through the grass. You might not end up where you expected but it might just be where you were meant to be. Sure, there will be snakes, probably a cactus or two… but getting to where you are meant to be will always be worth it.
Leave the future to itself. It will come whether you wait for it or chase it down. So don’t worry about it – just take this moment and live it like it was meant to be lived.
If you wait for the future to come to you, if you wait for the ‘right’ moment; you’ll miss out on some of the best experiences of your life.
Let go of your fears. Let go of the pain. Let all the things that have gone wrong slide into the past where they belong.
Let go – and live.
