Sometimes being selfish is a good thing. It means you’re devoting your life to you. Of course, you could always take a negative spin on this concept and go off the deep end, but you can do this in anything. Being selfish about your well being is what I am talking about. Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is remove the clutter or be okay when other people remove you as clutter. Remove the people and things in your life that aren’t necessarily hurting you but not helping you. It is important to surround yourself with like minded people, people that aren’t trying to make you a better person but are, and doing things that fill your soul with so much joy.
With that said, my current Alexa life theme song is "don't kill my vibe" by Sigrid.
Being selfish in this way means you are saying yes to anything and possibly everything that is going to help you in the short and long run. It’s making more time for yourself so that you can truly excel in all of your wildest dreams. Be spontaneous. Work out and be healthy. Adventure. Get lost in a good book. Dance it out. Whatever it is that you need to spike up your heart rate, or maybe even slow it down. Whatever it is that makes you smile for no reason.
Do it for what you think your purpose in life is. Try and fulfill that. There is a sense of power over your life when you have the means and the will-power to be a little selfish. To truly be young, wild, and free.
I know there are many’s concerns with this selfish idea. Some come from being comfortable in the relationships you are in, not wanting to rock the boat, not wanting to hurt people or be hurt, or disappointing someone or something.
Being selfish doesn’t mean burn bridges by any means. I am a strong believer in doing what is best for you. Sometimes the decisions we have to make aren’t those that we want but those that we need at the time. With that, it’s okay to still feel your feelings. It at times can be a tough pill to swallow. I can actually assure you it probably will be. It’s okay to feel sad, happy or numb from being removed or removing the clutter from your life. One step at a time you will start to feel better and you will find the necessities of your life.
Sometimes being selfish, isn’t so selfish. Hm, how? That's a contradiction Alexa. I know, I know. Think back to when I said sometimes the decisions we make or others make aren’t what we want but what we need, we just didn’t know it. So maybe letting people and things go is the right thing because they or you weren't benefiting from you anymore. Your time is up. So go wrap yourself up in wanting to be selfish in terms of saying yes to everything, trying knew things, and going out finding yourself.
It may be corny but goodbye’s aren’t always forever. I think there is a thing called fate or just that everything happens for a reason even if we don’t know what the reason is. Timing isn’t always right or may just not feel right. We over analyze thinking with our brains, hearts, and guts. So in the moment, be selfish, do you.
I can’t tell you the right answer of keeping or removing certain clutter from your life. I can’t tell you to listen to your heart, brain, or your gut. I don’t know the right answer. The only answer I know is say yes to you. Say yes to putting you first in a time of need, confusion, or frustration. Be present, be selfish, be proud of who and what you are doing with your life and why you are doing it.
While you're on your selfish journey if anyone is killing your vibe... don't allow them to and stay strong. Be you and do you.
