How many of us wake up each day and think "today I will be better"? Not that you were bad to start with... but simply that you will work harder, think more clearly, push yourself in your career, be a better friend, significant other, etc. Not to mention being better to yourself (in what you eat, how you sleep, your mental state and attitude).
It is convicting, to look in the mirror and realize you don't actually have it all. There are gaps in your system and you aren't perfect (shocking I KNOW). The good news is, we can be better. Opening ourselves up to the lessons life holds, taking classes, being open minded, listening to those around you, those who know more than; acting upon the needs (not only the wants) in your life. Baby steps.
Don't just dream, act.
Don't just talk, listen.
Don't pass up the life that is waiting for you to actively live it.
Today I will do my best to work toward the life I am meant to live; but tomorrow I will be better... Tomorrow I will push myself one step further... And if I fail, I will get back up, dust myself off and try again (just like Aaliyah taught me so many years ago).
*How many takes do you have to do before you get the right shot?
Photo I took behind the scenes on the new "Don't Stop" music video by 5 Seconds of Summer. I had such a blast working with these incredible boys and their amazing crew, check out the video here.
