Hello! I hope you're well! To celebrate the release of my first ever book, I wanted to share with you an exclusive extract of one of the essays!
0. YOU CAN HANDLE IT
Here’s what I want you to know: Whatever you are going through in life right now, know that you can handle it. No matter how tough times seem, remember that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. With hope, faith and love absolutely anything is possible. You are stronger than you think and have what it takes you to survive this.
At all times, be guided by the beacon of light that is love. Remember that love always protects, always trusts, always hope and always perseveres. Most importantly, remember that love never fails.
More than anything else in the universe, you deserve to be happy. Unashamedly live life as your true and authentic self. Never apologise for being who you authentically are, and never lower your vibration in an attempt to please negative or judgmental people. Instead of worrying about what other people think, be passionate about becoming the very best version of yourself. Stop letting your fear of rejection and failure hold you back from living your life to the full. Always remember that you are enough and that your life has infinite worth.
Free yourself from the prison of perfectionism. You do not have to get it right every single day of your life – allow yourself to make mistakes and allow yourself to learn from them. Embrace failure and know that every obstacle is in fact an opportunity to grow. There is nothing to fear about getting things wrong – the more mistakes we make, the wiser we become and the stronger we grow.
Make it your mission to form meaningful and genuine relationships with as many people as you can. Fill your life with authentic friends and build for yourself a loving family. Never tire of giving love, compassion and kindness to every single person who comes into your life. Realise that we find true purpose in life by forming genuine connections with other people. Seize every opportunity to make a positive difference in this incredible world we are so blessed to live in – become a guiding beacon of light who brings love, hope, and happiness into the lives of all those you meet.
Every single day hold your head up high. Stand up for yourself and at all times know your worth. Never suffer through anything in silence – asking for help is always a sign of strength, now weakness. Be fearless in living your most unashamedly authentic life. Be tireless in working hard to turn your dreams into your reality. Embrace change and seize each day, remembering that you never know which day could be your last.
Life is the most extraordinary gift. It is filled with limitless potential and opportunity – if only we choose to seize the day and make the most of every single one of these opportunities the world provides. Never miss an opportunity to spread love, build relationships, empower others, and grow as a human being. Never waste a moment worrying about what could potentially go wrong or what has happened in your past. Every moment is a brand-new opportunity to live your best life and to become the best version of yourself.
The power is in your hands. It is completely within your capabilities to become the master of your own destiny. Get out there and tirelessly work hard to turn your dreams into your reality. Enjoy every single second of this extraordinary journey and seize every single opportunity for personal development and growth. Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced. May you fully grab life with both hands and make the most of every single moment of this experience. Stop doubting your worth and stop imposing limitations on your potential. This is your one and only life – may you live every single second of it to the absolute full.
This is your time to shine and live a life guided by the eternal light of love. More than absolutely anything else, you deserve the freedom to do whatever brings you happiness and the protection from any form of intentional harm. Know your worth and know that you truly are the master of your own destiny.
The power is completely in your own very hands.
Remember that whatever happens, you can handle it.
Whatever challenges you are confronted with, you will get through them. May you remember that authenticity is everything.
Seize every single day. Let love be your guiding light, put yourself out there and fearlessly live your best life.
You’ve got this…
