Do people really have to make it big?
What is one’s perspective of the word?
What is one’s definition of making it big?
Material gains, being famous, having the best this world to offer…
Are these the only criteria to say that you made it big?
Having the intangibles– good health, good family, genuine love, living well by your standards
Does that consider to making it big also?
Does it make you less of a being if you don’t possess any of the tangibles but the latter?
Is there even a race as to when to make it big?
What if your pace is slower than the usual?
Does that make you less of a being as well?
If you were to ask me…. I guess not.
Life is never a competition with anyone else but solely to yourself. As long as you get to do the things you really like and enjoy regardless of paper, that’s more than enough to be happy. You already made it big.
As long as you surround yourself with genuine people, regardless of the number, that’s more than enough already. So what if you only got 3 or less, as long as you know they’ll surely stay, you already made it big.
As long as you are a social climber in your own damn right, you sure made it big. (Yes, Social climber in your own right,yeah right! I seriously meant it.) Doing and enjoying everything at your own risk, without having to bug or rely on other people just to get what you want, well, except your parents or cool sibs..haha! That’s how I call it, anyway. You sure made it way bigger.
As long as you are happy even if people think you’re crazy, odd or strange. Satisfy your happiness. Put a smile on your face. They will just love you for who you are and who knows, they might join you in your craziness, eventually. That’s love and that’s making it big as well.
As long as you show real love to something or someone that truly matters. You made it really big.
Life gave us a lot of reasons to be insecure, to feel less of ourselves, to feel like we have accomplished nothing. We become blinded when we know someone is like this or have become like that or someone went here or there and we forget ourselves. We forget our beauty. What we have accomplished, what we’ve been through to reach this far. In a snap, we become insecure. It’s so easy for us to feel less of ourselves when we don’t realize we’ve come a looong way to where you are now. Life is indeed a blessing and truly beautiful. You are wonderful! Sure, the road gets bumpy with a lot of challenges and nega eks but they are our stairs to becoming the best version of us every.single.damn.time. They are painful and hard, yes, but it nurtures us. When things are too much to handle…Stop! Breathe! Listen to music or be silent or have a quiet moment with yourself or communicate with a loved one who genuinely supports you all the way, then you will realize, what a great being you are! You made it big in your own right. You’ve come this far. Celebrate it. And you know what, the good news is, you can always do better to make it your biggest and reach for that ultimate happiness of yours.
Thanks for reading. Happy New Year! Stay happy always!
Cheers to a lot of better things this life has to offer!
