What if.. The two words that every human soul on this planet uses probably almost every day. But why? Why do we let the what ifs influence our life’s? Why are teenagers living in fear of being judged every single day asking themselves ‘But what if they don’t like what I’m wearing?’ or ‘What if they think I’m weird?’ Why are adults afraid to go to the job they’re not passionate about every single day thinking ‘What if I can’t provide my kids what they need? Why aren’t we doing what we actually want to do? Why aren’t teenage girls wearing whatever they want and why aren’t adults applying for the job they want to do. At the end of the day all we need is love, light and happiness, but are we really happy? What about spontaneity or courage? What about changing the what ifs into I cans? There’s only a small amount of people on this world doing what they love. I’m doing what I love. It took me so much courage, but it’s the most rewarding feeling to ban the what ifs out of your mind and to let the love and support people give you fill in that space. 60/70 years seems like an awful long time, but it’s so so so short. Oh darling, life is so short and all you do is everything except the one thing you want. There’s gonna be so many bumps in your life, so many heartbreaks. But that’s totally fine, at the end of the day you’ll know how to nurse your heart and how to take care of no one else but you. YOU always come first, always. Stop living in fear of what if. Stop living someone else’s dream. Stop being anyone but you. Stop being so afraid. Nothing in life is actually permanent. Not even tattoos. If you really want to get rid of it, you can. Open your mind. Let spontaneity take over. Work hard. Make sure you feel nothing but love and light. Let the people that influence you in a bad way out of your life. You don’t need them to reach what you want, I promise. Create your own positive mind set and werk whatever you’re good at/wearing. I know you can.
Stay beautiful, Anouk.
