We all have those moments in life when we start to question everything. Those moments when all we want is to be free, happy, loved. Nowadays it's really hard to find acceptance and to fit in, to find someone who really loves and appreciate us for who we are. We try so hard that we often miss on the meaning of life, we get caught up in our thoughts, we're getting lost in the moment, we're unable to focus on everything else. Family makes it even harder for us because they are constantly expecting us to achieve the impossible, they have so high expectations that they don't realize the pressure they are putting on us. At times like these, it's easy for a person to lose hope, to give up.

But let me tell you, life is SO much more than that. If you take a walk outside with your earphones on, you'll notice every small detail that you've been ignoring until now. You'll see how trees differ in size, how leaves are different colored, how the air or the sun feels on your skin, how every person you see has a unique story behind him.

Lately, I've been so closed in myself, I was so sad, I found opportunities to just go out of the house, take a walk, taking in everything I could. I was noticing how the little kids played like they didn't care about anything else in the world, how they were just living in the moment, doing everything that popped on their heads.
I was noticing all the couples passing by holding hands and I found myself thinking, "Why can't I have that?", "Why I can't just be like them?" And then more questions started coming like, "Will I ever be happy?", "Will I manage to do everything I dreamed of?", "Am I even good enough?" For all these years I always had questions like these haunting me, I was so depressed, I refused to go out with my friends and just have fun! But eventually, I realized that none of all these matters. And believe me, I know it's hard but we need to learn to let go. Let go of everything that's worrying us, let go of everything and everyone that makes us unhappy, let go of all those doubts.

We deserve to be happy, we have the right to be loved and anyone who can't see how special we are doesn't deserve us. We need to learn to live in the moment, find the importance to the smallest things in life, go out and just have fun not caring about "Where we'll go?", "When we'll get back?", "Who's gonna be there?". Life's too short to be wasted like that, we need to make the most of it. Besides, we only live once, life is not gonna wait for us to wake up and start chasing our dreams. We need to take responsibility for our own actions. Someone famous once said -It all starts with a thought- Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, and your actions create your own reality. There is never going to be the right time, you have to start NOW. If not now, then when?
