I believe into hard working. I believe into doing more and understanding time, what is really important factor. I think too many people still around us underestimate it, as it seems to be something, what will always come back tomorrow. And I understand it, because I remember myself thinking and acting the same. But what I don’t understand is the wait what comes to changing it, once you understand it.
There is a sentence what I once heard or read somewhere and it sounded something like that:
“Notice, when you feel good. After that remember it and keep repeating it.”
I think it’s a pretty clever advice, because this has lead me into everything I ever done or what I want to do. This is when I found photography at the age of 14. This is what made me travel at the age of 18 and made me move to another country when I turned 19. Also when I realised that I feel the best when I have loads to do and I can keep myself busy. Realising that the more I do, the better I feel. So understanding what works and what doesn’t just by noticing how do you feel when doing different and new stuff, can lead you exactly where you supposed to be.
Maybe I’ve set myself too many goals and achievements to achieve, but that makes me feel good. Within past couple of years, when I’ve been really realising who I am, and most importantly, who I wanna become, has made me understand many new things in life, what I maybe haven’t thought about it before as much.
As much as we have been working on our career goals, it’s important to stay close to everything what matters actually. A life without being shared is not worth it. Surround yourself with people who bring the best out of you and with who you can share what you already have accomplished and talk about everything what still waits ahead. Remember to love and stay close. It takes practice and sometimes it all doesn’t come out exactly how it is planned, but as with everything- fail once, but try again. I keep failing tragically even now, but I try again.
More importantly take care of your mental and physical health. I think way too many young people forget either one of it, as they go into extreme or see only idealism as a final result. You don’t have to have a strong abs or instagram-babe ass. But you most definitely should get your heart rate up with giving it to some jogging, swimming, walks or hikes. Understanding that our body will age before our mind will, is important to stay in shape. And understanding that treating this body what is fully health and full of energy before it starts to struggle, with a care and with love, gives you a healthier and stronger body for a longer time. Don’t go to run only because you wanna burn those brownie calories you ate. Go because you love your body and you wanna get that blood pumping inside your veins.
I talked about running with my sister recently and we both agreed how many people don’t understand the magic what happens when you “shut down” either your mind or body and start working only with one. Most of the time, my best ideas, plans or goals get "written down” when i’m running or swimming. I just “leave” my body run when I start focusing to things what needs to be solved. I did it every time when I got stuck with my portfolio, when I didn’t know how and what schools to apply and so on. I’ve figured out all my biggest decisions and problems, when i’ve shut off my body, leaving it to do some kind of movement. I think setting your mind in a different mindset, opens up a different way of seeing the world and understanding it. Just live healthy. Stay balanced.
…and once you figure it all out, keep repeating it. We are what we repeatedly do. And most of this stuff are really easy to do over and over again. And don´t let it fool you, just because it´s so easy to do, it´s also super easy NOT to do. So if you think you will skip the run, sleep one hour longer, skip the lecture, skip the working hour- you are already falling out of the pattern. Keep repeating. Keep doing what you do. It´s easy to do. And keep it that way. Don´t think how easy it is not to do one day. You will become whatever you repeat. So keep repeating the things you wanna become. They take time and patience and you have to be there, when they starting to bloom, because you are the only one who can make them bloom.
So this is how I roll. I know what makes me happy, I know what and who I wanna become today and where I wanna belong. I fail. But I keep going and doing. “No” is not the answer what defines me or my journey. I still keep learning and I learn so much more from my failures. Things what will be different. But have a goal as a final destination. Your route and plan can change, but not the goal. Most definitely you will gain new traits and experiences turning your journey to your goal and sometimes it makes it easier, sometimes harder. But learn your lessons and keep doing.
…at least this is what I do and what I only wanna do. Become who I am. And if sometimes I lose my track, I will think as this person who I wanna become, and I will fall back in track again.
Life is a wonderful journey. Plan it. Take actions. Don´t waste time. Exercise. Make yourself the strongest and biggest you can. Be somebody who your family, kids and friends would be proud of. Become who you wanna be. Become somebody you are proud of.
