“In the world through which I travel, I am endlessly creating myself.” –Frantz Fanon
Sometimes we get caught up in our own story. We tell ourselves our future is bleak because of what has happened in our past. We think we don’t deserve happiness, love, or success because we’ve messed up so many times before. But thankfully, our pasts are just that — past. And our future can be anything we create it to be.
Too often we forget life is a journey of our making, not a series of f-ck ups we’re doomed to live through. Despite messing up — tremendously — in the past, I’ve managed to carve out a life I love. Is it always perfect? Certainly not; I just had a setback the other day. But is it a pleasure to be living? Most definitely.
No matter what happens in your lives, Clutchettes, remember it’s your own. Shape it into whatever you want it to be.
