Where are you going?
What and who do you want to be?
We live in a world of constant judgment and constant validation that often you question who it is you are or want to be? Today we are focusing on being the person you want to be, regardless of what the status quo or norm says! When you were young and people would ask… “what do you want to be when you grow up?” How would you respond? When you are young, you know exactly what it is you want to be and what you want to be when you grow up but suddenly life happens and you question if that is the person you “should” be… Put aside what the magazines say or what people around you are doing and think today about that person you want to be. Think about the confident young child you were in knowing exactly what you wanted to be? Start being that person you want to be and not the person you think you should be! Below are our top pointers in allowing you start revising who and what you want to be.
Be You. Whoever that is. Be you without feeling like you have to give explanations. Be the you who wears mismatched clothing, just because, or the person who wears your favorite workout pants that are too short, because they are so you! Be the you who doesn’t go for perfection, but goes for authenticity and uniqueness.
Trust Yourself. Check your gut, your heart, your inner voice that tells you how you are feeling. Check in with yourself and trust what your heart is telling you. Without further ado, just trust you.
Embrace the light. In everything there is light and there is dark. Stop looking for the dark or only seeing dark and embrace the light. Look for the lesson to take away from any situation and with each situation there is light from dark. From the dark comes the light and that light is growth!
Surround Yourself With Love. Surround yourself with the people who are good for your heart, your spirit, your attitude, your outlook, your optimism, your support, your confidence and your path. Those that are not in line with your vision are not necessarily those who you want to surround yourself by.
Know What You Want and Go After It! Even if it takes time to discover what it is you want. Even if you feel it may not be the “normal” thing to do, if it is what you want and it is who you want to be, go after it. Even if it’s scary or if other people just don’t get it, just go after it! If you know what you want, go after it and you will have no regrets.
Enjoy Where You Are Not Where You Are Going. There’s time to go further or do more but remember, your life is now and all you have is now. Stop and embrace the present moment.
