Become okay with Being!
In a world where everything is instant, from communication to food, it can be good to simply take time to slow down and reflect.
There is a whole ocean of opportunities available to us, jobs, courses, and paths which can sometimes ignite a feeling of confusion.
Remember, it’s okay to simply be you.
You are not your goals, you are not your achievements. You are simply you.
Take a fresh perspective.
People love us for who we are and what we bring to their lives.
If you’re feeling anxious, overwhelmed, confused, lost or simply fed up, take time to simply be. Enjoy who you are as a person.
Think what it is that you love? What colours make you feel happy? Which songs or memories invoke certain emotions? What do you like about yourself? In which ways are you different or unique?
In a world absolutely focused on external successes, it can often lead us to feel we are not good enough.
It’s healthy to want growth, progression and more for your self and your life, but not at any cost. Above all, accept yourself and realise that you are worthy of love. No matter what you have achieved in your life and in spite of your shortcomings, you are still you.
Your voice matters and your presence is important. There will always be someone more talented, more hungry and driven, more athletic, more intellectual. There will always be someone who has achieved more and who is more popular, more fun, more wealthy.
However you define success and contribution, don’t let the fact that others will be better than you put you off. All that really matters is the journey.
By denying yourself the opportunity to grow and share, you are denying others the opportunity to see your light shine. Your activity can light a spark of motivation in others; your energy can inspire action and your very being can inject positivity where there was previously only darkness.
When trying to decide if you should pursue a project or skill or hobby, think of these things;
- Will I enjoy the journey?
- Is it going to grow me and challenge me?
- Am I committed to stick with this for a certain period of time?
- Are other people going to feel a positive benefit from this?
Constantly strive to develop and improve your self and the life of others.
The most important thing is to be true to yourself and fully embrace and accept who you really are.
