Get after it.

"We make a living by what we get, 
but we make a life by what we give."

Don't ask for approval, don't ask to fit in.

Too often in our lives we wait to make sure we are doing the right thing and going the right places based on what others might think. We worry too much about judgements and the words that might be said about us, that we hold back, and go with the flow.

We let go of our dreams because it doesn't align with our parents belief. We succumb to peer pressure because we are often too worried about what our friends might think if we say no or choose a separate path.

If we wait too long for people to give us the go ahead - we might be waiting too long. If we wait, the moments and possibilities will pass us by. To wait for others approval, on the life you should be living - is an absolute waste. Letting the moments pass us by, the opportunities, the dreams we have - are all within our reach. Don't let it slip by, don't succumb to what others around you might want you to think or feel. Feel it for yourself. Go after what you want and don't look back. People are always going to talk and judge and tell you you're doing the wrong's so easy to judge others, to point out the bad. You need to just let it go, realize there are no limits, nothing holding you back.

What would you attempt to do, if you knew you could not fail? If you shut out all of the outside chatter, opinions of others. What would you go after? Where would you go? 
Don't wait for someone to tell you it's the right choice or the right decision or even the right time. The right time is always, it's right now! Go out and be you and live your life to the absolute fullest it can be. You are made up of every experience you have ever encountered. Your life is yours, and no other is the same. For that, you are individual and unique. Take joy in this and realize what might be right for someone else, doesn't make it right for you. And that that is 100% ok.

Achieve your dreams, your goals because they are exactly what you want. The saying, "Never regret anything, cause at one time, it was exactly what you wanted," is so true. 

Feel what you need to feel and go after what will make you happy. Stop living your life by trying to please and impress others. This life is about YOU and what will make YOU feel HAPPY. You need to go out and get after whatever it is that makes you feel full and complete.

Go out and accomplish your goals, shut your ears to the people around you breaking you down and be at peace with your decision. Know where you are coming from and don't look back. And in return, support your friends, family and people around you. For everyone is fighting some sort of battle and need to feel the love and support of someone in their life. To support others, offer them a hand, a shoulder to lean on and to provide no judgement but only support, can be the absolute gift.

You are living your's just one step away. Get after it and don't let anyone hold you back.
