Forget Settling

Untitled How many times in your life are you asked to settle? It's a simple six letter word but one that fills with me a little rage if I'm honest.

It implies giving up and gliding along with an okay life. And that's not okay. You deserve the best kind of life, one that challenges you, changes you and grows you physically, mentally and spiritually. Settling ain't in that dictionary. "When are you settling down?", "I just want to see you settled" chimes are echoed, as if implying that when this rainbow sunshine day comes, my world will be turned upside down and no harm will ever come my way. I won't have to worry no longer, thank the lord. When in reality this makes me want to do anything but.

Settle for laugh out loud days, smiling from ear to ear, heart stopping moments and anything that makes you pause for a second and go, "yes I bloody love my life."

Don't settle for a crappy job, crappy people or a crappy relationship. Don't settle for crappy food or a crappy film - switch that thing off and upgrade to something better. Don't settle for waiting for tomorrow, do it now. Don't settle for not being open with your feelings, the 'what ifs' will kill your soul much more.

Don't settle because people tell you to or because society expects you to. Over the past six months I've witnessed half a dozen of my friends move across the globe to go chase their dreams, find themselves and when it boils down to it, not settling. They're my daily inspo, why I'll walk away from situations that hinder even a small part of my happiness and why I hope I'll never have to say I settled for anything.
