I was at, what seemed to be the lowest point in my life. I was mentally exhausted, stressing and worrying about the past, present and future moments in my life. But, one day, I had enough and told myself, from this moment I will start giving more to finding my passion. After all, your life is what you make it out to be.
Dealing with unemployment, a bad break up and a sick grandmother, I was in over my head. For months, I was job searching. But, the problem was finding a career I would love doing years down the road. I didn’t want to think just solely on the financial aspect but rather to discover my passion. I applied to a few jobs a day and no call back for the next months to come. Not only was that stressing enough but I was also still dealing with a terrible separation with my girlfriend for almost two years. It took me a while to move on. I had to let go and accept what was, learn to appreciate the good memories we made with one another rather than dwelling on the bad. My grandmother helped me to see things in this perspective. She’s has always been my rock. I couldn’t imagine living in a world without her. She has helped guide and mold me into the man I am today. Every night I worried on how much more time I’d have to spend with her. She isn’t at the best of health, but she remains strong. I’ve learned that, no matter what, death can not take her spirit. I just have to cherish the time I have with her now.
It wasn’t easy getting over my stress and worries. I started listening to motivational speeches from Les Brown, Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn and Alan Watts, to name a few. It help me to see things from a different perspective. One morning, I decided to put a motivational piece together myself, I named it “Motivation The Short Film” and the response I received from it was amazing. So many other were experiencing the same stresses I was going through and some even worse. At the end of everything, I’ve learned that no matter how bad you think things are for you, there’s someone else that’s going through worse. So, appreciate all the little things in life and follow your passion. Because we only have one life to live, make the most of it and don’t dwell on the negative. After all, your life is what you make it out to be.
