Funny thing about life: you thought you knew everything about something, but as you learn a little more, you realize that you don't.
You thought you knew exactly what you're going to do, but as you explore a little more, you realize that you don't.
You thought you knew what you want, but as you grow up a little more, you realize that that you don't.
You thought you're so good at something, but as you meet a few more people, you realize that you're not. Not that good.
Because we are not perfect. Because we can't be good at everything. We cannot please everyone. And we don't have to conform and be like everyone else. And that's okay.
Because life can't be all about making a long list and putting a tick in each box. It can't be about drawing a map and hitting the gas to reach the destination. Life is not a race, although some people sure make it look like it is.
Because life, from what I see, is all about the uncertainties. It's all about the surprises. It's all about learning new things and expanding the horizon. It's about the journey, indeed.
And therefore, it is okay to doubt yourself sometimes. It is okay to ponder. It is okay to stumble.
It is okay, as long as you still acknowledge and appreciate all the good things about yourself afterwards. As long as you know that your presence matters. As long as you learn and keep going.
Because that, is how you grow.
