Right now we are living in a world where we seek approval for everything we do. We seek approval from people who are close to us and from complete strangers on the internet. Think about things such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. When all these people don’t agree with what we are doing we simply won’t do it. I find myself asking why? Why don’t we go out and do the things that make us remember that we have a heartbeat? You know those activities that make you nervous, giddy and low-key extremely happy? Exactly! Why aren’t we engaging ourselves in them more. They are the activities that make us happy because we celebrate ourselves. We are celebrating our individuality, uniqueness and complete awesomeness.
I too am guilty of not celebrating my life the way I want to everyday but I am putting a stop to it. I want to feel my heartbeat again. I want to feel it strong and powerful just like it was before I muted it. I’m gonna listen to my heart and make up the rules as I go. I’m coming to my senses and remembering that there is nothing wrong with liking the things I do and wanting to do certain things.
I know each one of you reading this remembers the feeling I just described and thinking only if I could feel this way all the time. Stop muting your heart but listen to it. We should remember who the judge of our life should be. It should be yourself. My lovelies go out and unmute your heart. Go out and celebrate your life. It doesn’t matter if you do it for 5 minutes or an entire day as long as it is making you happy.
Feel your heartbeat.
