Painting Out Loud

To Everyone Who Wishes To Be Better

I’ve been getting a lot of comments from you guys where so many of you are wishing for something. You wish you would be better at this or that. Or you wish you would have certain tools because you think that then you would be better at something.

And I totally understand, we as humans like to come up with excuses why certain things don’t work for us just because it’s the easier option. Maybe because we are afraid to face the truth that we might be actually bad at something. Maybe we are just afraid of failing. Or we are just plain lazy to work harder and improve in something because deep down we know it’s not that important to us. We would rather think that it’s not our fault because our circumstances just not allow us to pursue this or that.

But I believe that it’s okay to be bad at something. We just need to be self-aware and accept it.

When I was in school I always struggled to get good grades in certain subjects and everyone made me think that I just simply suck just because the standard in school is to be good at everything. So if you are very good in certain subjects, it basically didn’t count because your other grades were bad or not good enough. And I totally understand that in school we just have to get certain grades to pass or to get into a better school or university.

But what I’m talking about is that we sometimes start thinking the same way as people make us think about ourselves. That we are untalented, stupid and that we just suck at life, just because we can’t get As in every single class and be good at everything.

But at some point it made me think about why do I have to give myself such a hard time. So what, I’m bad at math. Yes, I was good at math at some stage in my life. And I still can keep blaming my math teacher for being so bad in teaching that’s why my grades went downhill.

But what about my strengths?

Are they so unimportant just because I’m not perfect in everything?

Why do I have to keep wasting my time focusing on things I’m just bad at instead of getting even better at something I’m already good at.

And this is something we all struggle with. We always tend to focus on the negative things instead of embracing and celebrating the good things. And that’s totally normal for us. We are just build this way.

And what I realized is that, it’s okay

I’m aware that I’m bad at certain things, but at the same time I understand that I’m good at so many other things. And once I accepted it, I felt so much better. You have no idea how freeing it was. The moment I realized and understood my strength, I just stopped caring about things I’m bad at. Yes, I still gave my best at everything I did, even if the result wasn’t good enough, but at the same time I knew that this does not define myself worth.

I believe all our shortcomings are there for a reason. They allow us to realize what we are good at, what we might want to pursue in our life, so we can actually focus on the strengths and invest time in them to even get better. And then we just need to be patient.

I’m still in the process of figuring things out, I’m so early in the process, but for now these are things I realized and I thought that this could inspire you to take some time to think about yourself.

And if you are, just like me, in the early process and you want to become even better at something, regardless of how old you are or at what stage you are in your life right now, let’s do it. Let’s focus on our strengths, give our best and let’s enjoy the process while being patient.

So, guys, let me know in the comments below what is your weakness and what is your strength! Let’s get real here! I would love to get to know you better!

Thank you for watching/reading, have a wonderful day and I will see you soon!

Life is too short to worry! We all should stop worrying and start living! What is the worst thing that can happen? Even if we fail, even if something doesn’t work out, it’s okay. We need to stop, readjust, adapt and find a new goal and a new way to achieve it! Life will always have it’s ups and downs and we need to learn to deal with it. It is easier said than done, but it’s important to remind ourselves that that’s life. If nothing else, it’s life. It’s real, and sometimes it hurts, but it’s sort of all we have. And we need to make the best of it! We should focus on the present, be happy, enjoy life and figure everything out along the way! ❤

 

 

❤ Mentioned motivational & inspirational quotes about life ❤

“The future is never just one choice. It’s a thousand. And they never stop. You will choose your future every day of your life. And should you wake up one day to find that you regret the choice you made the day before, then make a new one. Don’t worry about whether you might be wrong someday. Worry about whether you’re right now. Tomorrow can wait.” ~Cora Carmack, All Played Out
“I know it hurts. That’s life. If nothing else, It’s life. It’s real, and sometimes it f*ckin’ hurts, but it’s sort of all we have.” ~Garden State
“The only certainty in life is that it is uncertain.” ~Charles F. Glassman
