"You wait till I become somebody" he said passionately...
I often hear these words from people, and I cringe all the time. What would make "somebody" think he/she is "nobody" until he/she becomes "somebody"? It's an unaware statement that only takes and takes from the existential gifts of a person.
So I'll ask: - were you ever born? - do you love yourself? - have you stopped breathing? - do you have aspirations?
If you answered no to any of these questions then stop reading (get off google/IG search and take as much time as you need to search within, because what you need cannot be answered by anyone else but you); and if you have answered yes to any, then you have always been somebody. Somebody who feels, loves and can be loved and is worthy of sharing and celebrating their uniqueness everyday of their lives with whoever they choose to.
Don't wait till a future date, celebrate yourself this second, this moment, like you would celebrate your favorite celebrity or this new year.
Your existence matters in this whole equation of life. Choose yourself and watch it all unfold as every experience warms your soul.
