There is no ‘right way’ or ‘wrong way’ of doing anything. There is only the way it feels right or wrong to you. There is no higher power saying you must get all A*’s on your school exams or you will be a failure. There is no higher power saying you must eat with your fork in your left hand or you have no manners and there is no higher power saying you must work for someone else all your life, get married and have children before you are able to relax for 20 years.
There is also no higher power saying that any of the above are wrong. See where I am going? Everything we see in society has been created by other humans and we then try to fit in to that way to feel established. But that isn’t a way of establishing yourself, that is a way of establishing someone else’s influence or idea of ‘right’.
Now I am going to give you some advice but please, feel free to dismiss it, because again, it might not be right for you:
DO WHATEVER YOU FEEL TO DO
Follow your heart, follow your dreams. Don’t let anyone tell you that it can’t be done. Anything can be done. There is no rule book. There is no set way of doing things. The only real thing we do know is that:
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
Apply yourself freely to what you love and you shall reap reward.
Be kind to others and you will create a kinder world.
Love conquers all.
There is no such thing as failure, only a chance to learn.
All of these things need to be remembered. You do not have to be earning a certain amount by a certain age to be deemed successful.
You do not have to have a 9-5 job to be taken seriously.
You do not have to meet someone and settle down to be considered loveable
You do not have to love women, or men, or both or for that matter, neither. You should love who you love (I must question the woman who fell in love with a tree though, but hey, each to their own).
You can create any life you want and by never forgetting that you are a living example to others and you will help them live a free life true to themselves. Fear is the only thing stopping us so let’s be brave and be everything we want to be. We are all headed out of this life the same way, don’t spend it following the herd!
Here’s to living Pride!
