It’s Okay to Take Your Time

We live in a generation that romanticises hustle, and moving forward as quickly as possible when it comes to careers and our success within them, but there is no point in rushing quickly towards a life that will not inspire you or fulfil you. It is okay to slow down. It is okay to take time you need. You are in no rush to figure out your own soul. It’s never too late to start over, it’s never too late to change your mind, it’s never too late to change your mind, it’s never too late to give up on the dreams you thought you wanted for one that genuinely excite and challenge you. It’s never too late.

When you count this, remember, Oprah was fired from her first TV job. Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school. Vera wang was a figure skater, who ended up starting to design wedding gowns when she was 40. Van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime. All of them greats we consider hearts, all of the people we want to emulate, they are approach their journeys from a unique timeline. They didn’t have it all figured out immediately.

Love may never be perfect or easy, but if it drains you more than it fills you it is not love, it is a life lesson. And one day when you are stronger and more resilient because of it you will thank yourself for having decided to ask away. But until that day, know your heart deserves to be flooded with love, not starved of it. You have the courage to give your heart the love it craves. The love it deserves.

    Sometimes when we rush we end up crashing and have to start over. Better to be consistent and go at a pace suitable for you.

    Please don’t be pressured by any individual or group, even if the group shares your values only you know what’s going on inside of you.

  4. Your examples of Oprah Winfrey, Van Gogh, Vera Wang, and Steven Spielberg remind us that life will challenge us with disappointment. However, better days will be coming.
