Dear Confused Millennial Part 1

Begin your journey to conquering your mindset at the end of this blog post!

You don’t need to know your future, it’s OK.

It’s my spring break #SPRINGBREAK2k17 AM I RIGHT?! Lol JK, I should be in London by now but yours truly isn’t allowed on planes at the moment because I got a concussion on one a few weeks ago LOL GO ME YES CLASSIC.   Honestly though, I am just as content, if not more right now because I get to spend the weekend with one of my favorite humans, Alison (from Daily Moves and Grooves), in Boston frolicking my little heart out.

That intro really has nothing to do with this post, I really just wanted to express my love for Alison.  This post is actually something I have been wanting to write for a while as I feel  like lately I am going through a mid life crisis. Yes, I’m 20.  No, it’s not actually mid life, but confusion about my future, and my present has been something I haven’t been able to get off my mind, so this is my attempt at establishing peace not  only for myself but for all the millennium out there.

Dear confused millennial,

I know it’s hard.  I know it’s confusing.  I know it’s scary.

I know you want to know how you will be successful, how you will live out your years.

I know you want to know who you are, who you want to be.

I know you look around yourself and see people who know what they want to do, people who are chasing their dreams, and people who look satisfied.

I know you look ahead and sometimes can’t picture yourself doing anything because you have no clue as to what to attempt to picture.

I know you want happiness, and success.  I know you want love and prosperity.

I know you want your life to be in place, and your future to be in place.

I know that it scares, no terrifies you,  that you feel lost especially when you look around and everyone else seemingly has it together.

I know these things because I am there too, heck, take a deep breath, everyone is there.

But, I also know that at this point in your life, right these very years, through all of the confusion and lost feelings, there is one thing that will undoubtedly lead you to your answer.

And, that one thing is loving the mother frickin sh!t out of yourself, saying YES to chasing your happiness on all levels, no matter what they may be.

The best thing you can do, the best thing we can do, is let go of the fear and the worry, let go of the future and be in the now, say YES to what we were put here to do… LIVE.  Be in the very moment, and do what your heart desires at every given opportunity.  Because when we do that, we unknowingly are allowing our futures to fall into place. 

When we honor ourselves and the present moment we are becoming who we are born to be.

Sure, we like to feel safe, have a plan, and know what is to come.  But, when we do things because we are focused on creating a future, we often miss the key pieces to the puzzle of happiness and self-fulfillment which in the end will be the base to our success.

Here is proof,

I created this YouMakeYou community after I healed myself from 2 years of severe chronic pain resulting from two intense concussions.  I saw 20+ doctors, all who promised to make me better, but instead time after time again, they left me feeling hopeless, either not helping or sometimes worsening my pain.  One day, in a bouts of the worst pain I had felt in months, I took matters into my own hands and began to heal myself through my mindset and mind/body thoughts and actions.

Chasing my happiness, loving myself even at my worst, and taking the immense power that we all have to control our own lives saved my life, and that is what I want you to decide to do today.

By loving yourself, respecting yourself, and chasing your happiness you open the doors to becoming what you are meant to become.  By doing these things you are putting yourself in the most open position to honoring the true journey of which you are meant to follow, whether or not you know what that journey is or not. Hey, you may surprise yourself!

Focus on being in the now, saying ‘yes’ to living, saying ‘yes’ to YOURSELF, and the rest will fall into place.  Trust yourself. It will be  OK.
