In the process of letting your limitations go. You should start to understand that your limitations is not what you don’t have but what you don’t use. With the wise words of Meredith Grey “Decide. Do it and decide. Is this the life you want live? Is this the person you want to love? Do you want to work a little harder? Is this the best that you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate. Breathe in. Breathe out. Then decide.”
So, I’ve cooked up 13 reasons why letting go of limitations will make you powerful.
1. You will love more
2. You will never settle
3. You ignore others opinions
4. You respect yourself
5. You lose fear of being wrong
6. You learn your strengths
7. You start taking chances
8. You create miracles
9. You collect moments
10. You trust in the timing
11. You become the best you
12. You will inspire
13. You find yourself
I wrote this list because I have found the people I love around me putting limits on the life they don’t see they deserve. In love, career, and life overall. Therefore, I have figured that there’s so many more out there that need the same guidance. Now that you know at least 13 reasons why you should let go of your limitations, start deciding. Your limit shows the least of your potential, Surpass those expectations and try to surprise yourself a little more everyday and persevere.
Love you, Later ♥
Millennial Quote: “Don’t explain yourself to people who only understand their perspective of life.”
The people you know change you in either the smallest way or the biggest way. You are what you do and who you surround yourself with. But, who are the people that made you the person you are today or will be? Once you understand that you’re worthy of a big life, you become unshakable and your whole perspective on the beauty and terror of people change.
The people beside you
Family and friends are a given in who to thank. This is your biggest priority of people to keep around because they have been there for you since the beginning and stay beside you to cheer you on throughout every step. They know it’s been tough sometimes but they still know that you can do it even when you don’t think that you can.
The People In Front of You
When I say the people in front of you it has nothing to do with them being better than you in anyway but they make you hungry for success and make you work. These people keep you looking forward into what needs to be done and to keep moving forward no matter what the circumstances are. Looking back or getting distracted isn’t an option.
The People Behind you
Who are the people behind you? The people that wanted to bring you down or make you feel as if you don’t deserve the life you have always wanted. Although this is hard to comprehend why to thank them… Giving it time makes it more clear. But, what you will see is that the ones behind you challenge you on how serious you want the future you deserve. They help you fight for what you want. In the end it only makes you stronger because in spite of fear of being dragged down, you fight and that becomes your superpower.
I am a big believer on the “whys” in the world. I believe every person comes into your life for a purpose and it could be a lesson or they can be push you in the right direction. Either way, they make you stronger
Love you, Later. ❤
Millennial Note: Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it by use.
People often mistake the meaning of the word “vision.” Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. A dream, a meaning, or a purpose. Sometimes it could be a vision that hasn’t been seen before or it’s just hard for others to understand. But, that definitely doesn’t mean that your vision is wrong. It’s just not understood yet and no one will understand it until they see it. For some “seeing is believing” and you just have to respect other people’s perceptions of that lifestyle but you don’t have to live by it.
I’ve learned that your vision may change, but your purpose in life won’t. So, just because your vision may change a little in your future, doesn’t mean you failed at your purpose. But I believe that having a vision is still important to have in your beginning because it helps you stay motivated at what you want to aim for. Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is passing time. But, vision with action can change the world.
Here are 3 key benefits that will make your vision spark:
1. Mind Over Matter
You choose who you want to be in your life and it’s just the matter of believing in what you can accomplish in your life. If you want to be more independent, start thinking more independent. If you want to be more productive, start thinking more productively. What you think, you become. When you start training your mind to think a certain way, you’ll actually start doing it!
2. Raise Your Tribe
Finding your tribe is one of the most important things to me. If you want to do epic things in life, you can’t be around basic people. Surround yourself with those that talk about visions and ideas. The right tribe are the people who not only listen to your ideas and vision but they also help you make it better and vice versa! Your vibe attracts your tribe.
3. Yearn to Create
Life is about creating moments. You can’t wait for them, be the leader of them. Einstein stated that “Creating becomes contagious.” Understand that what you create is not for what others see around you but for what you feel for yourself and others will follow you. Limitations do not exist, so don’t use it as an excuse to live the life you were meant to live.
Millennial Memo: Make your vision so clear that fear becomes irrelevant.
Adulting (v): to do grown up things and hold responsibilities such as, a 9-5 job, a mortgage/rent, a car payment, or anything else that makes one think of grown ups.
Everyone uses this word nowadays! When it’s being expressed, especially as Millennials, we usually express it in a negative tone. For example, “Damn, I really don’t want to adult today!”
“Adulting” is like a wild fire that keeps getting bigger and people just keep getting lost in.
Heres is how to change the game of growing up, Millennials.
Do you remember you when you were maybe around 5 years old and everything you thought about the world?
I was the girl who tried to make everyone smile and would always find new things that interested me. I was an explorer of my own mind and nothing about that has exactly changed. I never wanted to do something I wasn’t passionate about and living an average life was never gonna be in the books for me. From singing karaoke for the first time, dancing to music I loved the beat to, and believing I could have been a mermaid. I still believe extraordinary is out there.. Even if I don’t know exactly what it is.
Adulting is secretly leaving one of the best parts of you behind. The dream, the passion, and the endless possibilities behind the younger you. If you were talking to you as a 6 year old, would you let your younger self down?
If you can’t remember who you wanted to be or what you wanted from the world then forget about what the world told you to be and dig deep.
Children want to believe they will take on life and always be successful. Which is never always the case. Life happens and you learn a long the way. But, remembering the key dream of what your success may look like is sometimes the missing piece you need in order to get there.
Don’t get lost in the wildfire of adulting, have a wilder fire within.
Love you, later.
Note to Millennials: The world won’t pave your way to success. Make it.
Happy First Day of Spring AND National Happiness Awareness Day!
Well, recently a friend of mine asked me “How do you be single so easily?” My first instinct was to first laugh at the fact that I just got asked that because who ever just asks anyone that question?
All jokes aside, I sat down and really talked to my friend about the fact that you just have to be overall happy with yourself. It may not be every day, all day. But, overall happy. It’s sometimes not easy, but the person you are now changes and grows everyday. Think about that… You can learn something new about yourself and your capabilities everyday!
So, you just have to learn to not find someone to make you happy but you have to create your own happiness.
So, get out of your little rut!
You are only as good as your mindset!
Life will sometimes try to bring you down but you don’t go down with it. People will try to bring you down because they are already below you and others will try to help you rise because they care. Which group would you rather put your energy towards?
Rise up my friends. Because you learn a lot along the way and the meaning of true happiness.
Spread the love to ones around you. Because you need it and so does the world. Every generation that comes into this world is gonna get a lot of pressure for making the world better. Now, the pressure is on us Millennials. Let’s set an example for the next generation, raise the bar, and help them succeed as well.
Love you, later.
Millennial Note: You are MARVELOUS! (Pass it on)
The best thing I ever did in my life so far is accept myself. With that has come a lot more clarity on who I want to be and what I want out of my life… An extraordinary life! The one thing you need to acknowledge is that you do not need someone else’s approval to live the life you want for yourself.
Not everyone will be on your level or see things the way that you do and you have to be okay with that. Because the only person that needs to be on your level is yourself. So, learn to be your own best friend and understand that your value doesn’t decrease when someone doesn’t see your worth or what you’re really made of.
Be determined on giving yourself the credit you deserve. Because when you’re determine, you’re unstoppable!
The moment you accept your true self, it’s like you were blind to life. Forgive yourself for not seeing what you were capable of and not seeing what life is really going to bring to your table. Once you believe, you start to see what you have been blind to this whole time.
Live the life you have imagined.
Love you, later.
Todays Note to Millennials: Start everyday with a purpose
Growing up we believe that we can take over the world. Endless possibilities will come our way and nothing will stop us when we’re older. Now that we’re older… We are the boss of our life. With that comes a lot of hard work. To create a life with an endless amount of opportunity, you have to understand the meaning of being a boss.
Believe in being strong when everything goes wrong. Believing in your past failures and the hard times show the infinite power that stands behind you. The stronger that power gets the harder it would be to push you down. Therefore, take every moment and learn from it.
Bosses set goals and grind. Not just because they want to but because they have to. If we all did work on the days we felt good, we wouldn’t get a lot of work done in our life. Pushing through and always putting that hard work first will show the endless possibilities that are in front of you. Understand that you are your own brand, you should always be busy to get people to invest their time and energy into what you can bring to the world.
Understand that success is a decision. When you take what you’ve learned, who you are, and what you can be… you are Building On Self Success and boundless opportunity is around you.
Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle.
Love you, later.
Happy International Women’s Day!
A lot of people think we celebrate women on this day because “We’re women.” But, it’s so much more than that. All around the world there are women who dedicate their lives to make a difference in the next generation of women. We know strong women, we stay strong women, and some work to raise strong women.
There’s so much more to the word “Women” than meets the eye. Heres why:
We are Diverse
“The art of thinking independently together”
We’re all around. Raised in a different culture, in different colored skin, different sizes, and different lives. Both men and women should feel free and strong. But its the women, half of the worlds population, that has to be pushed to the side for the way that we are suppose to be perceived or behaved.
But, together we have learned to share our voice and stand for what is right.
We are Courageous
It takes courage to stand for what you believe in. But, a lot of the times it is taken as insanity. To walk together and sharing a common ground across the world should say a lot about what’s really important. To be a woman is powerful and others want to join that power.
“I am not ashamed to dress like a woman. Because I don’t think it’s shameful to be a woman.” -Iggy Pop
We are here
We believe in who we are, who we want to be, and know what we want in the world. So, we take International Women’s Day to really appreciate, reflect, and teach the next generation of women to make a difference.
We have been silenced before. Thats why now we realize the important of our voice.
Love you, Later.
What does being “Unwritten” mean?
I believe that everyone is a little unwritten. But, especially the Millennial generation and other people who are starting a new chapter in their journeys. Being unwritten is about being the voice of your own story. Not exactly knowing what’s going to be on the next page because there’s no rule book or plan that needs to be followed for your life. We’re undefined, we’re unpredictable, and we enjoy the ride!
Being an Unwritten Millennial feels like a drop of magic only you can feel for yourself. It’s empowering, scary, and freeing all at once. No one can really speak the words that come out of your mouth, we live our life with arms wide open, we color outside the lines, and strive for happiness.
We trust the magic of our beginnings.
I work and go to school, but a lot of my time and energy goes into trying to become who I am. That is what being unwritten is all about. Everyday you get closer to that person that you envision for yourself and you make yourself a little more proud. The closer you get, the more you realize that nothing is untouchable!
I get asked so many times what I’m going to do after this chapter of my life is over and I don’t have an exact plan. I have a bucket list of things I would like to do in my life and with my passion. But, sometimes you really can’t put into words exactly what you want to do if no one has done it yet. Therefore, why should I be expected to find a job that relates to my passion than make my passion my job?
I’ve realized that my outlook on life is a little different, but maybe that’s exactly what my generation needs. Maybe I can be one of the voices of my generation, I don’t know. But, I do know who I want to be and every page in my story will follow that.
The page that is being written in your story now is now. Make every moment count.
Love you, later.
The biggest impression from first meeting people is their personality. How they made us feel, how we will remember them, and what we learn from them. Sometimes, you’ll meet someone for a short amount of time but will have such an impact on your life for the right reasons. I’ve always said that the people you know will change you, good or bad, you always take away a trait from the people you’re around.
What makes you a memorable person in this world and why?
Uniqueness, to me, is more of the vibe that others share to the world that you can’t really explain. Sometimes, it’s simple to you but not others. For me, I’ve always been the girl that people confide in for advice and talk about their problems too. I’ve never understood why but I believe that it’s the vibe that I’m a welcoming person to be around and I look at life in a different perspective than other people do. Your vibe is your uniqueness and people will always remember the way you make them feel. Even when you don’t realize it.
I’ve always said confidence is contagious. Everyone always wants a little extra confidence in their life. Therefore, when you meet someone who is confident you kind of believe that you can be too. A confident person realizes there strengths and accepts their weaknesses. It’s a feeling of already feeling empowered enough in your own body that no one can really break you down.
Your pride says a lot about you. When a person takes pride in what shaped them to be the person they are today, it’s inspiring. Tyler Perry is a great example of this. He was creating scripts for shows and movies while living in his car. As hard as it must have been for him, he’s explained that not only is he proud of how far he has come but how living out of his car really built his character and he wouldn’t take it back. Now when I see Tyler Perry, I respect him a whole lot more than I already did and it’s because he takes so much pride in the events that made him who he is today and there are so many more people in the world like that.
“People will never forget how you made them feel”
