Feeling behind in life can be a sign that you feel lost in your direction. You are either confused or distracted by which way to go, because of the obstacles that persuade you to lose your way. Remember why you started, why you made this choice in the first place. Remember the reasons that were once more important and more powerful than your fears.
It’s important to understand life is not a race or a competition of any sort. Amidst all the confusion and stress, there is a silver lining in the feeling of falling behind in life. What they don’t tell you is you are actually propelling much faster in life in your speed contrary to what you think others perceive about your life. When you start to feel uneasy and uncomfortable about your situation right now, the urge to change your life is more than powerful. This sense of conviction not only has the strength to pull you out from your episodes of analysis paralysis but also to pave a new way of direction.
Now, the first quarter of 2022 is coming to a close, but the rest of the year is just beginning. I’m proud to say I’ve grown so much these past few months. Although there’s still a lot more I’m yet to experience, I can now draw strength from the adversities I overcome today.
Nevertheless, this pandemic broke us so we may be transformed. Little did we know, we were changing for the better albeit slowly. Even in the harshest conditions, there is a comforting prospect waiting for you to notice it. At first, I thought everything was going south and there’s no point to reach my dreams at all, but I was wrong. I was too naïve to realize that this tragedy is a painful yet necessary encounter to clear the obstructions along the way. It had to happen so I could gain insights from this experience that I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere. It reminded me that this life is transient, so I must make the most of this borrowed time.
By the time you’re reading this, it’s already the last day of 2020. You’re shaking in excitement as you anticipate a fresh new start for your life and for everyone else’s. You’re taking a look at your 2021 planner and can’t help but feel emotional as you ready yourself for more, upgraded challenges that will cut you open.
But before you pour all your energy into bettering yourself, it’s essential you understand that just as any new year, 2021 doesn’t give you a clean slate. The new year doesn’t mean everyone goes back to zero, free from past mistakes and baggage. Your journey will go on, as it always had. Your new year’s traditions will not erase nor will it give you leverage over others. You will still be struggling, and every single day won’t feel as great as the other days. But with your perseverance and concrete goals right in your pockets, you’re one step ahead of making your dreams a reality.
