Today I posted this meme because I said yesssss! This is so how I'm feeling, but then I realize, it's a complete
You cant keep calm and live life to the fullest. Life and Living isn't for calm, it represents energy, excitement, &fire ! Calm is overrated in a sense! There's the calm associated with the peace and serenity of the river, which is powerfully necessary to keep us in flow. Then there's the everyday calm which reeks normalcy, mediocrity, dissatisfaction, adulthood, seriousness, and responsibility. Now naturally, everyone isn't the turn up, jump up and down kind of person, but more times then not, people are, and they're just nervous to break out the shell of monotony. Too structured for spontaneity. There's a time and place for everything..but what about the time to live. To just let go, and BE the person your to calm to be.
This is not for the A-type who's been atype since 3! But the one who's looked at the excited jumpy loud people and secretly wished they were that. Or the one who wants to go on some adventures but are nervous and have no friends to go with!
When I turned 25, I went skydiving for my birthday. I told people for months I would go, even if it was by myself. I did and it was amazing. . All by myself! Yes I would've loved for a friend to go,but I love living, and as I've came to honor that I deserve amazing experiences no matter what, I've done a lot of amazing things by myself...and I'm totally ok with it.
Living for you may be asking a random guy on a date just because. Or running into the ocean with regular clothes on. Or even just speaking up for yourself for a change. Whatever it us. COMMIT to 3 things you will
do this week, that are the opposite of "calm"...share the challenge with your family and friends and take some pics while your at it.!
