The Best Thing You Can Do Right Now Is Focus On Yourself

The world is changing, my love… And with it so do we…

It is a natural process that we cannot stop it. No matter how much we tried. No matter how much we begged for it to happen. And that is the sole reason why I am writing this. I am here to open your eyes. I am here to help you let go of your fear. To encourage you to feel whatever it is that you are feeling right now. And let you know that this too, is a part of you. A part that you mustn’t neglect. A part that you mustn’t avoid facing.

Your emotions matter. Whether they’re positive or negative, they are still a part of who you are. They define you and help you find your place in this world of chaos.

And your presence on this Earth… Well, it is special. You may not see it the way I do, but your existence has made this world a better place for all of us. Take a look around you. Your life has brought joy to so many people around you, and you don’t even know it. It is in those little moments, little things you do for the ones you love. Cooking for your family, bringing your loved one breakfast in bed, laughing, and playing with your kids, calling your friends to hear their voice…

But right now, you are faced with something big. Something that you’ve never experienced before in your life. You are forced to depart from your loved ones. To be away from them. To not see them, touch them, kiss them, lay next to them, be with them. Right now you are forced to be alone with yourself. Alone with your thoughts, your fears, your insecurities, your needs.

And it is scary, I know. It is even scarier if you’ve spent a lifetime avoiding the demons inside of you.

But, this my dear friend, is the opportunity of a lifetime. You are now challenged to keep moving on regardless of how much that scares you. You are now given the opportunity and time to finally be present with yourself. To open your eyes, and for the first time in your life, observe the path that you’ve been walking for so long. To take a good look at the things you’ve done and the things you’ve failed to do. To notice your strengths, but also your weaknesses. To unpack your dreams one by one. To embrace the mess that you are currently in and find comfort in simply existing. Here and now.

You, my love, are now experiencing one of the greatest transformations of your life. So, don’t walk away from it. Don’t fight it. Don’t try to stop it.

Just take it.

I know that you are strong enough to survive this storm. I believe in you. And so do all of the people that love you. You just have to let life guide you and have faith that you are going the right way. Allow yourself to feel whatever it is that you are feeling. Accept the change coming your way. Shift your mindset and pay attention to the new path unraveling in front of you. There is so much in front of you that is worth exploring, you just need to open your eyes and see…

So please… Do it. Choose yourself over everything else. Focus on yourself and feed that beautiful soul of yours with the love that it needs. Give yourself the time that you need. For real growth comes only from within.
