You're afraid of the unknown, what is waiting to meet you around the corner. It's a little bit out of your comfort zone, the safety net that you've become accustomed to.
It’s always been so easy to associate the future with fear instead of wonder or excitement. It’s human nature to only think of the bad that can come from something instead of trying to focus on the good.
However the future is exciting, it’s a chance for a fresh start, a new chapter in your story. You have to make every day count, live each moment as if it is preparing you for the next.
If the thought of failure scares you because of your past regrets, it’s time to shake them off. Get rid of the “what ifs” or the “should haves” because you can’t change the past. You may have fallen off the bike a few times once the training wheels were removed but you didn’t let that stop you from getting back on.
You fail when you give up or when you refuse to allow yourself to be happy. It's okay to make mistakes because we all do, just as long as you learn from them.
No one enjoys messing up or failing but without these failures, a person couldn’t grow into a better human being, and you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the successes that life brings you as well.
Heartbreak will come and go, but don’t dwell on it for too long because the lessons you gain from it will only allow stronger relationships to develop in your future. Remember that time that you didn’t think your heart would heal, that you wouldn’t be able to find love again, it healed. It allowed you to get to know yourself better, to reach out to others and to channel your feelings into many different outlets.
Love isn't going to be missing from your life forever. It didn't work in the past and it may not be in your cards right now but that doesn't mean that there is someone out there who thinks the exact same thing about their love life and that this person isn't just waiting for someone like you. Those possibilities should excite you, the idea that the person who speaks to your soul is still out there someone.
Don’t allow the idea that you aren’t good enough scare you because I promise you that you are enough. It may take time for the right people to see this but it doesn’t mean that those people aren’t out there. Those who matter won’t mind when you stumble through life and those that mind doesn't matter or deserve a place in your life.
When you fall down you can get back up, you can start over and you can look at the bright side that there is always a tomorrow awaiting you. That’s the beauty of the future is a new chance, you don’t have to be held back by the past.
Dream as much as you can, and tell yourself that you can achieve it. If you are willing to put in the work you can achieve anything you set your heart on.
Honestly, the best thing you can do for yourself though is to just enjoy the moment you’re living in right now. Cherish the little moments and stop waiting for something big to happen. Take each day’s defeats and successes as they come.
The future is going to come no matter what, so enjoy today, take it all in and embrace all the memories you could make because missing out on memories and life should be way more terrifying than the thought of tomorrow.
