They say living well is the best revenge, and I believe I only just now truly understand that statement. When you are raw, the words somewhat singe your soul a little-and you think about how much you will stick it to the person that hurt you when you come out on top. But I realized, that is not what those words mean. Not at all, in fact. When you begin to really understand them, you are at a place where you are no longer thinking of what the other person will think or how it will make them feel when you achieve your goals. Your focus has shifted, and it only matters what you think and how it makes you feel. It is the best revenge, because it is not revenge at all. You live for yourself, and you forget about getting back at whoever hurt you. It no longer matters. What matters is who you are becoming, your trajectory, and where your heart is. Once your heart is in the right place, and you are focusing on your life and your goals, those thoughts of revenge don’t even trickle into the dreams within your dreams. This is when you have found your utopia.
Dreams are not for the faint of heart. When you begin dreaming, you have to stop blaming. When you accept responsibility for all that your life is, you are able to achieve any dream that you truly believe in. ©
