The first step for the new you is being aware that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE. You take the decisions. You choose.
No, don’t say that you don’t. Don’t say that it’s what life brings. That you have no choice. That you can’t do anything about it. That you are too young, too old, too poor…. that it’s how you’ve been educated, that’s what they told you to do, that’s what you have to do… really? Do you really “have to” do it? Who says so?
You are a big girl now. You can choose. I’m not going to say that it’s easy. I’m not going to say that people are going to understand and respect your new decisions. I say that IT’S YOUR LIFE. What are you going to do about it? Are you going to choose your own way or are you going to let someone else keep on choosing for you?
It’s simple: the key is understanding responsibility and consequences. You take responsibility for every thought, decision, and action that you take. And you take responsibility for the consequences. Because you are a big girl. You are not going to hide. You are going to follow your dreams and conquer the life that you want and deserve.
And that’s all.
Without disguising it of anything else.
Just you and your life, face to face.
