At the end of the day, I just want to be proud of the person I have become. I want to be proud of the love I gave — of the way in which I risked my heart despite being hurt. I want to be proud of the effort I showed those I cared about, I want to know with a ruthless certainty that I showed up as much as I could, that I made people feel seen, that I made those around me feel less alone in this chaotic world. I want to be proud of my life — of the way I healed, of the way I made mistakes and learned from them, of the way I felt everything even when it wasn’t convenient or comfortable. I want to be proud of the way I grew, of the way I let go, of the way I pushed myself to be a better person. At the end of the day, I just want to be able to say without hesitation that I lived my life, that I did not just take a back seat to my pain, or to my flaws, or to whatever hardships came my way. I want to be able to say that I am proud of the way I survived. I want to be able to say that I did not take one day for granted.
I will push for that next level, I will never stop because I believe I deserve more! I set the standards, I decided what is possible for me. My work ethic is higher, my expectation are greater, I am hungry!
Hungry for that next level, hungry for growth, I have come far but I can go further and I will.
You haven’t seen anything yet, I haven’t even warmed up....
This month is mine, this year is mine, this decade is mine, this life is my creation and I am ready for that next level...
You must be willing to go ‘all out’ if you want to change your life. As humans, we are only happy when we are growing, I don’t care what area we are talking about but you must be growing. It doesn’t matter how successful you are, you must always be reaching for your next level. Push for it, get uncomfortable! •
