Be relentless in your pursuit of love, life, joy and to just keep going. Each of our lives have an unknown, inevitable, expiration date.
If you can be an inspiration to even one person by being relentless through your own bumpy journey, then it will all have been worth it.
I invite you, just in this moment, to let everything go.
I encourage you to let all those ideas, methods or thoughts that you insist to be true or what you think is the only rational way to approach something, to dissolve.
It's okay to not have all the answers and it's okay to let the fear of possibility step in. Remember, it's just for the moment. While you're at it, cut yourself some slack.
I got an email this morning from an acquaintance. Her son was buried yesterday. He died recently from an unexpected bacterial infection. I did not ask details. I gave my sincere condolences and sat with that information on my heart all day.
That news brought me back to something that I've learned over the last few years dealing directly with a real possibility of the death of my own children and myself;
NONE OF IT MATTERS.
Not your title, education, age, social media status, relationship status, travel destinations, goals, what the weather is, what people think about how you run your life or the timeline in which you run it. Not your clothes, what you own, your social status or the hobbies you choose; Nor does your religion, philosophy on life or what you think about mine matter.
Do you know what matters? YOU. People. Love. Care. Respect. Kindness.
Whatever else you decide to pursue is just extremely delicious icing on the cake.
YOU matter. Loving people starts with yourself. Setting boundaries to keep yourself mentally, emotionally and physically healthy is a key component in making your moments with others count even more.
Love People. Love Yourself. And be RELENTLESS in your pursuit to keep going.
