Time: our most precious resource #WriteBravely

Time – it’s the most precious resource we have. And it’s the one resource that a lot of us waste {me included}. We spend hours stuck on social media, scrolling through other people’s curated lives, participating in dramas that are not our own. Sometimes, we do it to escape our own thoughts….sometimes, we do it because we are afraid of owning our dreams…sometimes, we are just not aware of it, for it becomes an addiction.

So ask yourself this:

Am I afraid of claiming my dream? Afraid of the sting of failure? Afraid I’m not good enough to have this dream?

If you answer yes, then please believe me when I say that you are enough – good enough, loved enough, important enough…ENOUGH….you are enough, you can claim this dream, you can pursue it and make it yours.

Yes, you may fail – but that is a good thing! Failure teaches you what you did wrong, it shows you what to avoid. Use those lessons and go after your dream again, and you will succeed.

Remember, if you never fail, you’re probably not trying hard enough!

So today, let me leave you with these words that I wrote to a couple of months ago:

It’s time to nurture yourself, to honor the longing of your heart, to follow the path on which you are being called.

It’s time to wake up to your authenticity. To find your voice. To be who you are.

It’s time to stop being swayed by the easy route, to silence the voice in your head that makes you believe you’re inadequate.

It’s time to be true to yourself.

It’s time.

  1. That’s another thing I’ve to tell myself. That I am good enough for that dream I have. Self-doubt creeps in silently, and I don’t realize till it is too late. Thank you, Gypsy.

  2. Beautiful thoughts Jini. This need for self-love is such a simple matter, yet why do we find it so hard to do it? Yes, it is TIME we woke up to this reality.

  3. Over the years, I’ve come to realize that when I love myself, I don’t doubt other people’s love for me. But, if I don’t, then I don’t believe that others will, either.

  4. True, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by and we end up wasting a lot of it. Time is indeed the most precious resource and we certainly need to use it well.

  5. I have a dream, but I have been putting it off like there’s lots of tomorrows. I don’t know if i can ever overcome it. Nevertheless, wasted time never comes back.
