Music Mondays: The Climb (Miley Cyrus)

If there’s anything that can describe my life right now, it’s The Climb by Miley Cyrus. Life is never easy. It’s never fair. It’s never anything we want or expect it to be. But how I react to it is my own choice. How I live it is my own choice. Not anyone else’s.

The Climb by Miley Cyrus

In the past few weeks, I’ve learned more about myself than in all the years I’ve lived.

Fear is my greatest obstacle. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of getting hurt again. But I know it won’t get me anywhere if I succumb to fear. So whenever I feel fearful, I tell myself this:

It’s alright to make mistakes and sometime failure is necessary. Forgive yourself, learn the lesson, and move on.

It’s alright to be rejected. You can never please anyone. Sometimes rejection means there’s a better way or a better option. Accept and be open to all possibilities.

It’s alright to get hurt. To suffer is human. Be vulnerable and feel your emotions. Sometimes, you have to break in order to re-create yourself again.

 A head full of fears has no space for dreams.
