So often I hear people say that they are working on “living their best life.” I am in full agreement with the power that each individual holds over their actions and life affairs. However, most of the stories I hear about a friend living their “best life” involves some sort of isolation and a strong focus on only themselves.
Now I am a firm believer in self-love, but how can we live our best lives without serving others and remembering others needs? In my opinion, life becomes an empty shell when we focus acutely on ourselves instead of digging deeper into relationships. It seems as though, as a generation, we have become more and more self-serving and hold less obligations to serve the people whom we love most.
My question to society is, what are you going to do with your new “best self?” How are you going to impact your community and help others realize their potentials? Just some Thursday thoughts…. Much love. XoXo.
How did I find my confidence to publish my writing?
I realized that this life is so rare and nothing is guaranteed. When my friend passed away suddenly in 2015, I realized that this world owes us nothing. I began to believe that, if anything, we owe something to the world. You have a life, a talent, a God-given gift that you need to share with others who are aimlessly wandering around this spinning globe. Share it.
You will not live forever.
When it happens, it will feel like the whole world has come together. Piece by piece; fringe edges and smooth peaks alike. It will feel like both the past and the future have always made sense. It will feel beautiful, genuine and unbelievably real. It will feel like love. The love you have always deserved. When it happens. -Angela
