The things that make you happiest in life always seem the scariest to achieve. The best things in my life have never been easy but even though I was scared at first, they always turned out to be amazing and I have never had any regrets.
I have learned that you can’t run from what makes you happy. Whatever is in your heart, no matter how terrifying or completely insane it seems, if it makes you happy then you can’t run from it. No matter how hard you try to find a substitute.. you know in your heart it’ll never be the same as the thing that makes you purely happy. Completely purely happy. You’ll always end up back where you started staring that fear right in the face, every single day of your life until you’re tired of running. Until you’re exhausted. Until you can finally admit to yourself that it’s something that you need and just can’t live without anymore.
We only get one life. Only a few years where we have the energy and youth to follow our dreams and our love, wherever that may take us. If it’s scary, that means you’re on the right track. If it’s terrifying, then that means it’ll make you happier than you’ve ever been. It’s perfect.
So take a minute, just one minute. Sixty seconds where you stop running and just look into your heart. Ask yourself, what makes you happy. What makes you happier than anything else in the world. What do you want. Because your heart knows the answer, and running is never going to change its mind.
It’s easier for some people to follow their hearts than others but no matter who you are, following what makes you happy is the only way you will ever actually BE happy. Seems like such a simple concept to grasp, but putting it into practice can be a whole other story.
