“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”— Asha Tyson (via the-healing-nest)
“I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble.”—(via sukmun)
“No one knows what they’re doing in their 20s because very few understand that time is the most precious asset in life, and you will never get it back. Not even billionaires can buy more time. They die, just like you and I will. Time is your most valuable resource, and it’s constantly trickling away. You can save up money, you can strive to earn more later and make up the losses from your youth, but your time here is finite. If you want different results tomorrow, do different things today. It will never be easier to take big risks and try new things than when you’re still young—you’re likely to have fewer commitments and obligations to hold you down. If your environment is holding you back, change that environment.
Form the habits that will define your adult life. Eliminate the negative, embrace the positive, and form habits that breed success. Eventually, everyone realizes they’re temporary. It sinks in, little by little, that you won’t be here forever. The fact that your life can and will end, something you’re desensitized to as a young person (because we assume our time is still long, and it seems endless), becomes reality. For most people, that change comes too late in life. Allow yourself to feel it. Accept it. Meditate on it. Your time is going to fly by. Start making it count today. Live with purpose. Live with passion.”—Andrew Ferebee, The 10 Reasons Why No One Knows What They’re Doing in Their 20s (via soft-world)
