I hope someday you believe in taking chances. Especially the ones that make your heart race, because if it catches your breath and you can’t stop thinking about it and it makes you feel alive? It’s probably worth looking into. No one lived an interesting life by completely avoiding the things that scared them. Take chances. Believe that things can work out. Even if they don’t, at least you tried.
I hope someday you believe in your ideas. Even the ones that seem too crazy to manifest. Remember — no one is going to believe in your ideas if you don’t believe in them first. So stand up for them. Fight for them. Carve a path for them. You need to be your own best and fiercest advocate. Fight for yourself. Fight for your ideas. And don’t apologize for it.
I hope someday you believe in the people who seemed too good or too unrealistic to be true. We don’t cross paths with many people who electrify us in life. Actual connection, actual sparks are hard to come by. So when you can’t stop thinking about someone, that’s no small thing. If you’re drawn to someone, if there’s a pull even if it’s only detectable to you, maybe give them a chance to surprise you. Maybe give them a chance to make you decide you believe in something.
But at the end of the day, I hope someday you believe in yourself, because the only way to be confident is to decide you are. No one believes in someone who doesn’t believe in themselves. Even if you deep down don’t, pretend. And then fake it ’till you make it. The growth will come. 💋
