Do you ever feel like you are being left behind in life? That you aren’t getting as far as those around you. Do you feel like you are too old to try something new, or to become what you wanted to be? Do you feel as though all the good opportunities, success and easiness of life are going to someone else?

In today’s society, it’s becoming more and more common to feel the pressure to be the best of the best by the time you hit 25. You are expected to have a large social media following, a comprehensive social life, happy marriage that still gives you all the feminism you desire and a healthy thriving career. There is very little to no room for error as you need to be on top of your game at all times. You need to be thin, but not too thin; happy but not boastful. There is a certain appearance that you are expected to be at in this life, and anything less than is deemed unacceptable.

Our world is full of contradictions to the point where it can be overwhelming to even try something new. You are bombarded with those who tell you that you aren’t good enough or you’ll never get off the ground. That your idea makes no sense. That you don’t possess the right personality to own your own business. There are thousands of people out there promising to help you grow your Instagram into a thriving multi-million dollar venture. The list goes on and on.

I believe you truly need to step back and look at this world and where we are going with fresh eyes. Understand that there is no time like the present to do what you want in this life. That your goals and dreams are there for REASON. You have not been left behind, you are right where you need to be. Every experience, every moment you have dealt with, everything has led you here so that you can become the person you were meant to be. There is so much in store for you, so much potential that you haven’t even tapped into yet. Don’t let trivial comments, fear or pressure from this world stop you from showing everyone who YOU are and who YOU will become!

Start spreading positive light in a very self-centered hateful world. Start being a positive force to the community and start utilizing the potential you always knew you had. There is absolutely nothing stopping you, but you!
