Learning to live, love and let go

You can't have everything the way you want it in life.

Whether that be a bikini clad body, or the fit guy you fancy.

Not everything can always be exactly how you'd like it. This can be hard to accept, but as soon as you except it, you can learnt to live, love and let go.

I am never going to be a size 0, nor am I going to suddenly grow a new face that I am ultimately comfortable with. Nor am I going to instantly get over the past, or be able to overlook all my flaws. Regardless of what it is that plays on my mind, there is always going to be something. Or someone. It may be a thing or a thought or a person that you can't stop obsessing over. But as soon as you make the conscious decision to let go, a weight will suddenly disappear, or your shoulders will feel a lot lighter at least.

Negativity is the kill joy of happiness. An obvious statement but a true one none the less. Constantly thinking negatively about yourself, your image, your past, your future, is just going to distract you from the beauty that surrounds you and the here and now. You start to realise that life is precious, you only get one and you shouldn't waste time hating that extra belly roll or the person you are still kinda in love with. Even though they are things you might not be able to change, there is a large bunch of things that you can. You have choices always, and it's time you started making them.

I am an advocate of moving on. Learning to live, love and let go. Learning to adapt to change and new situations and new people. Learning to say "you're forgiven" after someone has done you wrong because they are the words that they may so desperately want to hear. Reach out if necessary, speak to those who love you, eat that pizza, jump in that pool, quit face tuning that selfie, smile a lot and laugh at your own jokes. Choose to surround yourself with people that make you happy, not people that are good for your image. Love despite. Sing songs from the top of your lungs and reconnect with people that will never leave your heart.

If you are reading this, I strongly encourage you to do all of that, and then some. Make someone elses day, tell them how much they are needed and wanted. Speak your mind for once, no one ever does. Don't live in fear, live in excitement. Don't lust, aspire. Be the change you want to see in the world. Read the book you've been meaning to for ages, text someone you miss just to see their words if you have to.
