Looking through old journals and found this message I wrote to myself last year before i quit a job in which I could no longer grow. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
You only have this life to try to find out what it means to be alive in this body. Don't waste a second of it holding on to what no longer fits or trying to be a copy of what already exists. Stop calling the tight space of your comfort zone, your home. There's more to life than the four walls you have trapped yourself in defining what you do. Go out and discover what this huge world has to offer. Stop calling the cookie cutter image you have modeled yourself into, who you are. Break free from all you think you're "supposed" to be and create what you want to be. Give the World the privilege of meeting someone they have yet to see.
It is your choice what you do with your time on earth. You could be alive OR simply exist. You can live as you OR live never meeting who you were meant to be.
It's always a choice.
So choose wisely. Choose passionately. Choose authentically.
