Chapters and Sequels
I've learned a lot of lessons throughout my life. I'm not an old soul to know it all and I haven't been through a whole lot of hardships. But I have lived enough and learned enough to realize that you go through a variety of chapters in your life and some people just aren't meant to make it to the sequels of your life.
We are the authors of our own lives and our lives are like books, or something like that. In your head you have this idea of how you want your book to go and how the sequels will play off and everything is picture perfect... until it's not.
Until you realize some of those characters in your book need to get killed off (kinda like Shonda Rhimes does with her Grey's Anatomy characters). That's the main problem, you know they aren't good for you, you know they aren't making your life any better .. and maybe not any worse, they are just there. But you don't realize it until you start reading your own book and realize how repetitive that shit is. Have you ever watched a novela or watched a series and you see the outside of the story and know the truth that the main character is failing to see.... yup thats you, you are the main character and those people screaming at you across the screen are your family and friends telling you to "listen lindaaa" but you're just either too hopeful or naive that change will come.You cannot change anyone but yourself and you can only change once you see the actual problem.
The point that I am trying to get across is if you're someone who feels "STUCK" I can tell you right now ... jump off that train (FYI it's not headed anywhere) and start making your own path.
End the chapter, Hell end that book!! Start a new one! It's never too late for the sequel to start with a new and improved you. I believe that so many people fear change. They think that change means the end of the world, or at least I did... however, I can tell you change is the most exciting thing that can ever happen to you! Go out, explore! There's a whole world out there waiting for you, you've been missing out while you were stuck so it is now time to makeup those missing days, years, hours.... time is money and memories!
I see so many young girls and guys who are so into the "relationship goals" crap and it just somehow annoys me ... at such a young age your goals shouldn't be focused on having someone to post cute things about.
However, I won't be a hypocrite about it either because when I was in high school I was definitely boy crazy. If I could go back I'd tell high school Alondra to stop focusing on dumb shit.... I never made extremely bad choices but if i could back I'd choose me. I'd used my time wisely instead of putting so much focus and effort on those useless relationships.
When I look back at my personal books and all the sequels of my I realize how repetitive my life was. It's actually embarrassing to know I allowed it for so long but I am proud to say I am learning and my new book is looking better than ever because I am my main character.
Sometimes it's fair to be selfish and sometimes you just have to take care of yourself because honestly no one else will. Be your own priority and see how positive changes will take over your life!
