Sometimes you have to remind yourself of who you are and who you are not. And you have to realize that you can't allow yourself to exist within the barriers and confines of expectations, even if you imposed them upon yourself. It's okay to have those expectations, but it's even more powerful and purposeful when you unchain yourself from those demands. Expectations will drive you, but it won't keep your aim focused on the target. Targets change. Aims change. Life changes. And every now and again, you have to readjust your expectations. Readjust your dreams. Readjust your mindset. I'm here to tell you that it's okay because it's even more powerful and purposeful when you shed the skin of who you are no longer, to become who you are becoming today.
“The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.”—Helen Mirren. (via neuers)
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson (via prettydrawings)
