“The future scares me”, she said as she played back memories from her past life…
The older we get the more we experience life and its great yet heart aching adventures. We get kicked back and forth, and we get lost in our heads. We get to experience the consequences of the choices we’ve made…both the good and the bad. The best consequences leave us with memories and stories to tell.It is the bad experiences that leave us wounded and scared to move forward.
So we tell ourselves the future scares us. We fail to open doors for opportunities because we fear what awaits us, we fail to start over and give love a chance once again because we are afraid of falling too deep, and we fail to look beyond our mistakes and imperfections because we’ve made our minds believe that there is no perfection beyond our flaws…
yes we say “the future scares us” but,the truth is it’s not that we are scared of the future, it’s not that we are scared of finding love again, it’s not that we are scared of what’s behind the door, it’s repeating the past that makes us anxious. You are not scared of the future, you are worried that your past experiences will come back and that is not something you are ready for
…so you say you are scared of the future.
P.S. Your past doesn’t have to determine your future. You’ve got to believe that your past made you stronger and your mistakes made you wiser. You’ve got to believe in the future…your future
They say life is like a piano. The white keys represent happiness and the black shows sadness.and as you go through life’s journey, remember that like a piano, the black keys also make music

Being human is all about being there for the ones around you. As humans we remember to take care of the people around us. Your friends post something bad on their WhatsApp and Facebook status and you immediately stop what you were doing and ask them how they are.
You remember to say good morning and goodnight to your loved ones. You get up early to make your kid’s lunch box and Iron their uniform. You stay up late because your friend is heartbroken and needs a friend…basically what I am saying is we make those around us our priorities. Keep up the good work!
But… yes there is a but…you’ve got to remember this one thing,
“You too are your own priority”
Yes we must be there for the people we love, but sometimes we have to make ourselves our own priorities too. Take a day off and just do something for you. Get a manicure 💅, get your weave straightened, get your beard trimmed, go out for ice cream. I mean yes people need you but you need you too. The world won’t stop moving when you decide to do something just for you, so pull back a little and just prioritize on you for a while…
even if it’s just for a minute
Be your own priority
