You are not behind in life.
There’s no timetable that we all must follow.
It’s made up.
7 billion people can’t do everything in the same order.
What’s early? What’s late? Compared to who?
Don’t beat yourself up for where you are. It’s YOUR schedule and everything is right on time.
i was thinking how many sides of a person there are and how every person contains a maze with clues laid out for you if you take the courage to wander around there. do you know how they spend their summers do you know what song lyric repeats in the back of their minds for weeks do you know their favorite time of the day do you know what piece of art they look at and everytime it brings a tear to their eyes do you know a quote they live by do you know what movie formatively shaped them do you know what is on their walls do you know the key they mostly sing in do you know what their hands can do do you know where they go when they want to get away do you know they are waiting to be found do you know they are worthy of your love and beyond. do you know there’s a place in the maze where you can build a home in. do you know you can add separate rooms to their maze and do you know the dark and do you know the light of them do you know the cruel and the kind do you know do you know do you know. you might not. that just means you are the luckiest person in the world. that just means you have a world to discover
im so enamored with stories that portray love as something soft and kind because i do think that love at its core is an act of kindness. its part of the reason i prefer the idea of growing into love instead of falling in love because when i think of growing into love i think of a garden, like love is something to cultivate, to tend to daily, a steady progression of growth with some setbacks, a few dying leaves here and there, having to move to a bigger pot and a spot with more sunshine, but it’s still something that at the end of the month, or a year, or a decade, or a lifetime you can look at and see the product of your dedication, see exactly what it means to pour your heart into something. i just! love reading about kind love!
this post is for anyone who feels a little lost right now. maybe you don’t know what your path in life is yet. maybe you hate your job. maybe you’re still in school and you’ve changed your major three times. maybe you’re confused about what it is that you want. maybe you know exactly what you want but have no idea how to get it.
you will figure it out. you are not dead yet. you are going to figure your shit out. i believe in you.
