BEING ALEKS:

Is trying to figure out whether one should laugh or cry at the people that nowadays try to give out life advice and profit off of it, although they are, to put it my way, not really looking out for your personal well-being, rather fro their own.

I agree that all we want is to take care of ourselves, work on that personal GOALS list and tick off one after the other, one step at a time. But for me that should start by admitting to yourself who you really are. What are you afraid of, what's your biggest desire, what you would change and many more questions that deserve to be answered. Just often don't get completed enough. 

The more time I spend at uni, the more I see such revolutionary attempts, at writing, being inspirational and sending out meaningful messages, but here's the thing, I have seen some of those people in real life and often it comes as a shock that those honest, approachable people on Instagram differ from the real-life experience we get once we encounter them. 

For me it is therefore important to distinguish between those real inspirations and the once that attempt at free riding on a trend that is supposed to be helpful and empowering, it is the details we should pay attention to and listen to carefully, the true intentions are given away there easily.

So open your eyes and ears, seek out truly important messages and find your mantras to follow, because those are things that solely depend on you.

"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored."
