I have been insincere to myself for quite a while, starving myself of the things that make me so individually me. This has led to confusion, depression, and a lost sense of self. Recently I have been making an effort to build the life I want to live. I feel reinvigorated, alive, creative and optimistic.
Although we have so much potential, many of us get stuck trying to make others proud, trying to fit in with our peers, and we are left feeling unaccomplished. I believe we get this way because we give up being uniquely ourselves.
Whatever dreams you had as a child or young adult; give yourself another chance. If you have been out of the loop for a while, you will find it refreshing to be once again working on something that makes you who you are.
Work on the things you love because you enjoy them, and not because you need to make money off of them.
Start slowly, don’t quite your day job. You will feel more balanced, optimistic and energetic.
Build your life around the things that make you uniquely you and you will become the best version of yourself.
Have a good day everyone!
I am continuing with my theme of taking action.
The new band has been together for 6 months now and I’m starting to really enjoy playing music again. I haven’t been playing for the past 4 years, and I am finding myself feeling like I’ve awakened from a deep slumber.
Tonight we are practicing mid week. This hasn’t happened yet. We have been strictly practicing on the weekends. Last practice, the productivity was through the roof and we all have the bug!
Be the best version of you,
Life is all about choices. For the last 6 years I have been making all of the right choices for immediate monetary satisfaction but all of the wrong choices when it came to satisfying my soul. This has recently all changed and wow, what a rush I am feeling. For the first time in a long time I am getting to know myself again. I feel a shift, and its happening in real time, even as I am writing this.
How did this happen?
No matter where you are in your life there is only one way to go. To learn is to move upwards and we learn something everyday, to achieve is to move forward and I believe we all have the will to achieve and be our best.
A weekend trip to Costco has always been an assault to my senses. The shopping cart traffic jams, center aisle shoppers, race to the finish checkout lines, and dangerous objects in the middle of the road (ie: your kids) have always driven me a bit nutty.
