Everything necessary

How can losing something that was never yours hurt so bad? There are times in life when you build something or someone to such a level in your mind, that you completely ignore reality. This way you create an emotional connection to something that exists only for you. And even if for you it’s real, it doesn’t exist in the world.

As life unfolds, you will need to give up many of the things you keep in your mind because they no longer have any chance to become real. You are not at fault for how the world moves and for what happens outside of what you can influence. But at the same time, you have to consider what happens outside of you when making your choices.

No matter how much you wanted this, it seems that it will never happen. But the thought of it was part of you for so long that, even knowing it won’t happen, you still believe it might happen someday.

And you are right. It might happen one day, but in the meantime, you need to explore other options. Otherwise, you might remain stuck in a place where nothing happens. A place where you are surrounded by regret for the things that didn’t turn out as you wanted.

You are allowed to keep a grain of hope that what you want is still possible, but stop holding on to it, and explore the rest of what life has to offer.

When you look into the future, what do you see? Does it have anything to do with where you are now? You should know that as long as that vision of the future is strong enough, where you are now is not that important, it’s only a stop along the way.

Why are you not moving toward the vision you keep in your mind? It will always stay in the future if you don’t work to reach it. How you see your life in the future might seem overwhelming, and it might seem so far away from what it is now, but this does not mean that you should never go after it.

It is your vision. This means that you are the only one who can make it come true. Waiting for someone to do that for you will not work. You are ahead of many people because you have an idea of what you want your life to be. This means that you know where you’re heading.

Too many of us wonder aimlessly, asking ourselves why we get nowhere. So, take advantage of knowing what you want life to be, and pursue that vision.  If you don’t, years later, you’ll find yourself in the same position, not knowing why nothing changed, why the life you imagined is just as far as before.

The first step is to know where you’re going, but then you need to go. Things won’t happen only because you think of them. There must be work involved to make progress. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠If you truly want the vision from your mind to become real, there should be no doubt about what you have to do: Everything that is necessary!
