Midnight Thoughts

written by: bellasoņadora

Over the past couple of years I've grown a lot.
I've learned things I never would have thought of, some the easy way some the hard way. Time helps, always will, it teaches and fosters growth. In a way it helps explain "the world" and every essence of it.
The best thing I've learned probably is that you have to love it, it being a multitude of things. I've learned that you have to love yourself, and not in some sick narcissistic way - in a genuine way. I've learned that you have to "do you", put yourself as your number one that's the only way you'll ever really get to know, appreciate, and genuinely love yourself. You have to love life too. You only get one shot at it so why bundle yourself up with hate for it? Remember life = everything. I think a lot of people forget that. When you love yourself it makes it easier to enjoy and love life, kinda like a circle.
Try it - prove me wrong - I bet you can't.
Don't over analyze things, just take some things, well most things, as they are - not everything in life requires thought, most things don't I guess its part of human nature. Enjoy the little things and smile plenty, remember you really do only get one shot at all of this "live it up". Do things that make you happy, things that make you feel fulfilled.
Don't have regrets, meaning make everything a learning experience.
I've had plenty and I can't wait for the million more to come. Never give up, things change - constantly, so what isn't right now may be soon. Remember that. Follow your instincts, they're always right at some point. Don't be afraid to live and love without restraints, and let yourself go, just remember to have one foot on the ground cause you never know when you may need it. Laugh a lot its good for you - mentally and physically.
Love your friends, most of the time, and grow with or apart from them, its natural. Take the time to listen and think, it helps make you who you are and believe. Believe in yourself, in life, in love, in time, in thoughts, in healing, in people, just believe.
Believe in something, its like breathing.

A very true and very nice piece of writing. I felt you could easily have been writing about me and I guess thats what writing is all about isn't it? Well done.

Believing is like Breathing. Like when your reading a book and you get so absorbed in it---you forget and wonder aloud "Was I breathing?" when, of course you were. Sometimes you just forget what you believe in I think---but it's always there.

I read this a year ago when you first wrote it... and I just re-read it now. I love how you can just cut through all of the bullshit of life. The thing I love the best is that it's not just what you what.. how you want to see the world... but how you live. I envy you!

i like how you titled it midnight thoughts, because thats when i do most of my complex thinking, so i felt totally connected to what you mean. Our points of view vary a little but overall the way you captured me in your writing...i could easily see myself doing the same thing. hahah muy bien.

Its true, I agree you have to love yourself before you can love anything or anyone else in life. And its only one chance in life you get. And through years you grow. Nice work.
