I’m not trying to scare you, but…

Good morning, World 🙂

I’m not trying to scare you, but you have enemies. 

There are people out there who hate you. 

And I mean, HATE you. 

There’s gotta be at least one miserable soul on this green earth that would love to see all of your dreams and aspirations crumble and fail despite your greatest efforts to hold them together. A bitter, miserable douche who for whatever reason – perhaps a past grievance or a perceived injustice – would love to secretly watch you flail in abject misery as all of your wildest ambitions come crashing down on you like rocks of your own making. An asshole, if you will.

Or as I like to call them, an enemy.

Holding hate in your heart is never a good idea. Anger is a powerful, destructive force that can do more to harm you than to help you, if not properly contained. Who hasn’t accidentally said the wrong thing when they were upset, or channeled their rage into an outlet that only furthered their own personal deterioration?

Do not waste this fire on yourself. Instead, channel it.

You are in control of your own life, not the people who wish you harm.

You are the one who gets to decide what to do with your life, your goals, your deepest ambitions. Not your circumstances, not your budget, and certainly not that asshole you used to know.

Why not use this fire inside of you for self-construction, rather than self-destruction?

Pick up your pen and write down your most important objectives for the day. Line them up. Then, like a well-trained marksman, take aim at your obstacles and blow them apart, one by one, and dance in those pieces like goddamned confetti on the day of your victory.

In the paraphrased words of Patton Jr., we are not holding the line. We are not holding shit.

We are advancing upon the enemy with every step. 

Now get out there and advance upon your goals, your self-doubt, and your enemies.

Don’t waste time stewing in anger or resentment. Channel that shit into your work ethic and recreate yourself into a force to be reckoned with.

You’ve got this.

xoxo Liv
