What Happened to Your Life, and How to Find Yourself Again

Dear self,

Lately I feel like everything is a run, everybody is running to get somewhere, to be someone, to be noticed, when did we change from not wanted everybody talking about our lives, from telling everybody everything about us on social media?

life got so hectic, and yet we spend the whole day in our phones. We harldy haven been to parks, or museums, we never have time for firneds and family, we are so tired in the end of the day, but we dont feel productive at all.

I don`t knwo about you guys, but thats how I feel most of the time? I go to three different places, I clean my house, I go to college… But in the end of the day I didnt do everything I needed to, I haven seen or talk to any of my friends, I dont remember I word the teacher spoke in class, and there are still tons of things to do, but I am way to tired to even think about that.

And you know what, its been terribly stressfull, made me and anxious person, it`s even dissapointing.

What happend to the life I wanted for myself? Thta life where I study what I love the most and enjoyed, the life where I see my friends on the weekend, the life where I go home to relax and not to deal with a billion things, what happened to the gym I used to love to go but now I force myself to be there? Where did my life went?

I feel like I wished for so much, I lost track of what actually matters. Like I had to hit rock bottom to realized what I’ve been missing. And for you who feels the same on the other side of the screen, let’s do it again, let’s start over.

Everyday is a new day, and a new opportunity, and long 24 hours for everything, stop letting everything get in the way, stop crowding your routine with not important things, use your free time for your own stuff, and use the time you have to be stuck in the subway, or in the car for new readings, new songs, try a podcast, be inspired. Do everything with your heart, separate your day into the things that need to be done, and remember to take time to care for yourself.

Let life follow is own lead, let everything find its own place. Stop talking about the things you are not so sure about it, read more, dance more, film more, write more, draw more, meditate, go to yoga, find a sport, give attention to those next to you.

Life is beautiful and you can find your happy place in this world again, believe me.
