It's #selfworthwednesday, my favorite day of the week. The day I remind all of my twitter followers and Dream On Youth supporters that they are worthy of life, love and happiness. I've been a part of the DOY team for almost a year now and I've realized I've grown a lot since then. I've opened myself up, I've pushed myself to experience new things and now I'm learning that I'm still getting to know me. I've always subconsciously known that I don't put myself first, that I let people walk all over me and take advantage of me. It's been happening for years, it's still happening. The only way it can and will stop is if I choose to do something about it. And I've decided to do just that.
Okay, it hasn't been the easiest task in the world. I often need to be reminded: do it for you! I occupy my mind with how my actions will affect those around me that I completely put myself on the back burner. I say no, I accept disappointment again, and again because it's better for those around me. But what if I said yes? What if that silly adventure I want to go on never comes around again? What if this is my only chance to experience something like this? Yes I have responsibilities to worry about and yes it may cause unnecessary stress, but the memories? Aren't they worth the risk? I did something because I wanted to once before and it worked out flawlessly, so who's to say it can't happen again? What if the universe is telling me to go for it and I ignore the signs?
STOP. Stop over thinking, stop making up excuses. For once in your life answer this: will it make YOU happy? If the answer is yes then what other choice is there? This is your time. This is your life. Memories can only be made if you learn to let go of the fear, and the hesitation. Let it go.
Be selfish. Be bold. Rebel a little. Live your life for you.
Never forget the essence of your spark!
