I’ve said this a million times over the years, and its true. When your time comes to leave this world you don’t want to look at your Book of Life and have it written by everyone else but you. There is nothing selfish about finding out who you are, what you want out of life and following the path you feel led to follow. Its actually very selfless to do all that first so then you can live the authentic life you were meant to live and you will be much more able to help those around you.
And most importantly if you allow others to be the Author of your book of life, you wont be living your life you will be living someone else’s. Other than you and your God, no one knows you better. People will always have opinions on how you should live, how you should act, what you should be doing with yourself and its all based on THEIR life experiences..not yours.
Don’t confuse the wisdom and advice of others with you need to do exactly what they are telling you to do. Wisdom and advice from those in our life that we trust and love is great but you only follow it, if it actually speaks to YOU. Its there as a suggestion, information but it isn’t Law.
This is a great video, what Matthew McConaughey is saying is spot on…I know I know try not to let the ‘alright, alright, alright’ actor influence whether you watch this or not!! Enjoy!
