With all of the distractions around us it’s easy to lose site of who you are and who you want to be. I had to take some time to unplug from social media, tv, phone etc. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the hype. The funny thing is a lot of people don’t think that they’ve “drunk the Kool-Aid”, because their not taking selfies, following fashion trends and keeping up with celebrity gossip…you know, the usual! We’re all drinking the Kool-Aid of the social gravitational pull.
I did some self reflecting and I asked myself a simple question “When am I the most happiest”? My follow up response started with “I am most happiest when I”… from there I listed all the things that make feel fulfilled as a individual. I wanted to list real truths from my heart. Truths that have nothing to do with something I’ve read or watched someone else achieve and tried to claim it for myself. Ofcourse you can be inspired by others however, don’t invest time in something that you’re not passionate about!
Please don’t let people push their insecurites and doubts on to you. So my advice is to take a pen to paper the good ole fashion way and start your sentence the same as I have and create your list. I know it seems elementary but It works! It really helped me gain perspective and I’m working at readjusting my life to line up the things that make me the most happiest!
Until next time…
