be kind

1 Jan

You know what I dislike more about New Year’s resolutions? It’s the constant pressure we feel to push ourselves into becoming the best version of ourselves. The problem with that is that in order to achieve that, we lose our real selves in the process. We become something we are not, only to fullfill society’s expectations of what we should do or who we should be.

I am through with making unachievable resolutions. I don’t feel the need to be something more. I am happy with who I am and what I have.  I just want to be here, to be present, to be appreciative. I cherish the good days and I mess up on the hard ones. The only difference is that I am kind to myself either way and I move on.

And you know what? Once the weight of needing to turn into the perfect you has been lifted, you feel liberated. Free.

Be kind to your family, be kind to your friends. But most importantly be kind to yourselves. ALWAYS.

until next time,

love
