Life can be so ridiculously stressful. Everyone agrees. Life can throw a wide array of troubles our way, just because it can. How do you handle it?
Don’t ever judge other people’s stressors, we are all so different. Regardless of what causes it, we all have stress. Lately, I have been feeling so overwhelmed and have no idea how some people balance it all. How do people do it?! The most important thing is to push past the stress and keep working on yourself, your soul is an unending project.
I think that you have to learn how to balance and reevaluate your priorities, then reevaluate again, see what works for you. You have to keep everything in perspective, try your best, not be perfect, make mistakes, learn, excel, fail, move on, and just keep on moving toward your best self.
The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.

Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.
Learn how to take the worst situations and let it be the catalyst for our undoing, which is then our transformation.

When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.

Even though I am extremely blessed to have accomplished many of my goals at such a young age, I am still reaching, still striving.

My goal now is to remember every place I’ve been, only do things I love, and not say yes when I don’t mean it.
