The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

This day last year so much changed. It hurt and hurt before and after and just everything just kept piling up and hurting and I didn’t know what to do besides cry myself to sleep every fucking night.
Today everything’s different. Past me would be proud of present me. Now I’m crying writing this for a different reason: because I’m so fucking happy I am living the life I am living now. I’m so fucking happy I can look at my life and appreciate the good instead of dwelling on what isn’t or what should be. I wasn’t myself this time a year ago and now I feel more myself than ever even though I’m more different than I’ve ever been.
Not everyone will understand what I’m saying, but to those who do: life goes on. Eventually the bad fades and eventually you have to change. Change is growth and change is good. Happiness can always be found and sometimes you just need to grow a pair and create your own. I know it’s hard, I know.
Reflecting is good. All I wanted this time last year was to feel how I do now. And I do. And I am so grateful.
