Ours


We spent
so much time
chasing
the blinding lights

trying to live those
shiny dreams

trying to understand
and find love

through the shadows exposed
on the streets

through the strangers dancing
to our beats

in between
unknown bed sheets

that we let each other
slip through the
only moment
that was truly ours

somewhere in between
running from the past
and hoping
for a future together
in a way
that is

Ours.

Be vulnerable


and you’ll be surprised what you learn and who you meet.

Be vulnerable

if you are going to have a real relationship with someone.

Because someone has to be the first.

Be the one who opens up the dialogue.

Who asks questions.

Who cares.

No one has it all figured out. We are all just trying really hard.

If you can be vulnerable, you can share the journey with others who have similar insecurities.

And when we open our hearts, we get better.

Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

It’s simple, not easy


You might have an ambitious goal, and you clearly know what you need to do to achieve it, but…

You are just not doing it.

Most of us are like this.

And by us, I mean myself.

It’s just excuse, after excuse, after excuse, with a little fear of failure mixed in to make things explainable to others.

This really kills me from inside, because I know, more often than not, everyone of us could accomplish so much more if we just cut our bullshit excuses and put in the work.

If you were looking for someone to serve you some warm and fuzzy motivational words, go somewhere else. Because I’m not writing this for 99% of you who will read it, get high off motivation, and do nothing about it making zero progress.

I’m writing this for 1% of you who I can actually impact. And that includes myself too. For people who are truly willing to make sacrifices and do whatever it takes to turn their dreams into reality.

First of all, take a cold hard look in the mirror. Look yourself in the eyes, and say: “Stop fucking around.

Because here’s the thing.

If you know what your dream is, and you know how to get it, and you still haven’t made any progress, then you’re not trying hard enough.

Simple.

This is not meant to make you feel bad. It’s supposed to kick you in the balls.

Seriously, if you want to something, go out and fucking get it.

So decide right now: Do you really, really want it? That one thing?
Yes?

Then start fucking working towards it right this second.
