Take A Deep Breath

Sometimes you just have to take a step back. I understand we all want to be somewhere and we all have ourselves fixated on our destination but sometimes step out of yourself and view your life from a birds eye view. Remember that you have come a long way from where you was in the first place to where you are now.
One of the things I’ve realised and appreciate a lot more recently is gratitude, I used to hear this buzzword a lot and I didn’t really understand it, when I started doing it I didn’t think I was doing it right but now I understand that you can’t just say it with your mouth you really have to feel grateful for your life exactly how it is now, how it was and how it is going to be.
The journey to the destination is sometimes more fun, don’t get all caught up to the point that you forget/neglect your blessings. You are very blessed, you have to strip away what you think is normal and take it down to the very basic levels of comfort, even being able to sleep on a bed at night, having heating, being able to eat these are all luxuries! I say that because everything can really be taken away in the blink of an eye.
It’s very easy for us to get carried away in our hopes and dreams, my suggestion is to have a plan whether mentally or physically and work at it but don’t neglect now in the process. The same way you go to work and come home, you should also work on your dreams and also live.
