It’s never too late to change direction
If the path you are on is not going to lead to the life that you wanted then be brave, take a deep breath and take the fork in the road and change direction.
Don’t settle for less than you deserve. If you earned it then value it and value yourself. Don’t let anyone rubbish your achievements however great or small they may be. Every step forward is brave and courageous when you are journeying into the unknown.
Hold love carefully in your hands and hearts, it can be fragile and can break in the gentlest breeze or be strong and cross any void or vacuum. Take it for what it is and keep it safe in your memory whether it lasted a moment, a lifetime or an eternity.
Be kind to yourself. You are all you have. Don’t wrap yourself in cotton wool, but remember you only have one life.
Be kind to others. Be compassionate. They too will have a story, it might not be the same as yours but it will have laughter and tears, love, loss and heartache.
Ask for help when you need it. Sometimes a trouble shared is a trouble halved and there are souls out there who would gladly share their last supper with another who was in need.
Remember to look upwards, see the sunrise and the sunset. Look at the stars and the skies. There is a whole universe out there waiting.
Breathe. Slowly. Breathe. Take time to be in the moment. See it for what it is and then let it go.
