Today's Message : You Don't Have To

You might question a lot about your life. Where should you go? Which one is the best? What do you have to do next? How can you reach your goals? Why do you get stuck in the current situation?

You might want many things. You might have a list of goals you should accomplish in certain time. You might pick up other people’s dreams too. Your parents’ dreams. Your friends’ dreams. Your neighbors’ dreams. You might admire other people who are successful and want to be like them. You might feel that you don’t have anything to help you achieve that. You might want the world to know who you really are. You might want people to understand what you are good at.

You don’t have to.

You don’t have to get the answers for all your questions right now. You don’t have to know everything at the same time. 

You don’t have to have a lot of things like other people do. You don’t have to accomplish your goals in short time. Even if other people can reach similar dreams shortly, it doesn’t mean their journey will be the same as yours. You don’t have to achieve other people’s dreams which are projected on you. Their dreams are theirs. Your dreams only belong to you. You don’t have to be the same like your parents, your siblings, your friends, your neighbors. You are you. You are unique and sent to this world with certain purpose which might be totally different from your family. You don’t have to get all the things you want right now. 

You don't have to explain yourself to everyone you meet. People who belong to you will be there without you ask them to. You are already loved without that 10 chapters explanation. You don't have to prove anything so hard to other people who aren't meant to be with you. You don't have to get billion followers and likes everyday. You don't have to be accepted by everyone in this world. You don't have to sacrifice yourself in order to fit in. When people ignore you, it means you are running in different frequency which don't meet each other. 

No need to rush.
Don't worry.
Your hard work will be paid off when you put good intentions in it.

What’s meant for you will certainly come for you. Set your goals, your intentions, do the very small things you can right now. It doesn’t have to be starting a big project. It doesn’t have to be building global partnership. It doesn’t have to be invest in large amount of money. It doesn’t have to be anything big at first. A small step does count and it will change your life as you continue walking on your path.  Keep looking at your north star, your sun, your whatever you are looking up to which sparks the fire inside you. Your answers will come. You effort will be blessed. Your finish line will be closer and closer as you don’t stop your small steps.

You don’t have to be the fastest
You don’t have to get it all now
Because you certainly will
