Ask and you shall receive. For the past month or so that word has been slipping into my life. Whether it’s a twist of the radio, with Drake speaking of his manifest to my soul or Jim Carrey telling us to find our dreams, the movements is session.From left and right, we now are putting a large emphasis on manifesting. our real goals. Going back to Jim Carrey, while watching watchmojo, he said something that somehow resonated with me.They were these words.”So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying, I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it — please! (applause) And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order, it’s party sized.” This quote proceed me to run to my laptop and write this post.There are moments we use the word can’t, ALOT. But usually from personal assessment, it’s because of the internal fears that drives us to believe that something is beyond our reach, so why try .I have found myself in that mindset quite a bit. Why me? In words of queen Mindy, “Why not me.” . That’s going to be my new matra. In the grand scope of things, I mope at the possibles that seem beyond my finger tips , but what if they’re not.
For as long as I could remember, I recall the ages of 6-8 lasting a really long time. To a naïve little girl like me, this meant a year felt like a decade. These times were spent , riding bikes in the island, eating good food , contemplating when I would be a full on adult and get to do adult things like wear a bra and grow things called boobs. Every time I recall those thoughts, I’m tempted to step into my imaginary time machine and shake some sense into my 7 year old self because being an adult is not fun. At twenty, this comes with perfect timing because last year I began to grasp just how much time is flying by. Like all famous dead or currently living people have stated, “Time is money”. Maybe not physical money, but it’s a precious thing. When you runout, there is not store, which you go to refill it. You’re done. Yesterday, I was doing the usual Sunday scroll through postsecrets.com, when one of my post cards showed up. Long story short about almost a year ago ish, in march, I sent three postcards in and 2/3 have been featured (Go check out post secrets and see if you can find it.)But this new awakening in the speed of time, woke me up into really investing my time into things that will benefit me in the long run. This means not wasting time on law and order marathons for 4 hours on a Saturday, or just by doing nothing. Instead, I’m going to take this time I’ve been given to learn and just focus on pursuing things that make me feel content. In addition, I also want get uncomfortable and do a couple things that may scare me, but will promote personal growth. In the end, it’s just one life I’ve been given and I refuse to waste it and just give it my all
