Be the shark or the guppy

What’s crazy is where you can get inspiration from. While cleaning my room I found a bunch of fishnet stockings. Scandalous… I know. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Wearing fishnets or stockings in general always makes me feel sexy, confident, a boss bitch, and I get inspiration to write. This time, it brought back a conversation I had with a very smart (and cute) guy which inspired me ๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Sharks don’t chase guppies.

That simple sentence made my whole thought process turn around. I hate to admit he was right, but he really was (on this at least). We have two options in this world when we are hurting, confused, upset, frustrated or anything. You can either be the shark or be the guppy.

Sharks dont chase after things that are insignificant to them. Why would they chase after a guppy when they could have something of value. Something that actually means something. I started to look at life and people the same way and so much has changed. I’m more confident, I deal with things head on, and overall I’m happier. I don’t care about people who have done no value to my life.

BE. THE. SHARK ๐Ÿฆˆ I was always so concerned about what others thought of me and would put others before myself…the guppies. The ones who hurt me, used me, manipulated me… The whole 9 yards. I guess life works where you can be the guppy or you can be the shark. Surround yourself with sharks.

I’ve written about things that have happened in my (dating) past. Of course there are days that you feel pity and days you feel sad. Maybe a memory. It’s OK to feel that way too! No one can take away your memories and when you are hurting that’s all you think about…the good times. The laughing, the trips, the sex, the cuddling, the pictures. They were a part of your life and they will always get to be as you will be with them. But they are a memory. Don’t let them take up a piece of your heart or your head for long. Give yourself time to mourn and move them to your memories!

“The shark totum represents those with sleek authority. Those who connect with the shark totem will be masters at survival in their own waters of life”

“Shark Totum and Symbolism” – what’s-your-sign.com

Reading all of this and thinking of that one simple, yet absolutely amazing quote, made me see that I am the master of my own water of life. The water I swim in and the path I take is completely my own. The path I came from was mine and mine only. I am proud of the path I have gone on. The path I choose to go on is what I decide. I decide who is in my “shiver” (group of sharks). *fun fact* I decide what is enough. I decide.

So start deciding. Take the dive in and be the shark! Be proud of the water you swim in. Be proud of the path you took. Be proud of where you are. Only you were able to survive everything you dealt with prior and only you can survive the path you are about to endure. Be the shark and be the master of your own damn water of life. Survive that shit like the boss that you are.

Te amo. No Pasa nada. ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿ’™
