For millenia people have been trying to get others to fit into a box they molded. Understand this: THERE IS NO ONE RIGHT WAY FOR ANYONE TO LIVE BECAUSE WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT. We are the same essentially, but made different in many ways. And that’s cool! But know this, anyone who tells you that you “have to do or be this to become perfect” or get “perfect results” is lying to you and trying to make you to their liking. You are yours and yours alone. Your life, journey, and road/path is different than all other 7 billion people on this planet. What’s meant for you is for you and you have every right and reason to live your life and your truth, whether others understand or approve of it or not.
Now, if you want to live your best life to the best of your abilities there is a certain set of things that are required of you to do – because they are all in your best interest and lead you to living your best life in this moment. But here’s where it’s different, you are not bound by anything. You are free to do, live, be, learn, grow, move, give, and love at your own pace in your own way. To succeed there is a formula, but it is not a limiting and degrading formula like that of someone who’s trying to get you to be and do what they want you to be and do. This formula guides you and helps you in a loving and caring way and gives you the space you need to achieve greatness your way, in your style.
There are so many ways for each of us to live, be, explore, and love. We each bring something unique and wonderful and beautiful to this world. We each shine our own lights. We are not bound to the conforming, limiting, and demeaning rules and regulations that we’ve been spoon fed all of our lives. The only thing we are bound by is Love. Love is what we all are, what we are made of, and what we are made from. It connects all things. And last time I checked, Love only required us to show up and do our best. That’s it. Love is that formula, Love encapsulates all those certain things that are required to live, be, and do our best. So just love.
When we choose Love we choose greatness. And there is no one, right way to be great. There is no one, right way to Love.
