FINDING YOURSELF(DISCOVERING YOU)
You can be different from the rest of the world and still be fabulous — in fact, you’re fabulous because of it, not despite it.
Different means good. So if you are different, you, my dear, are good.
The idea is to understand what makes you different, and as you do that, you get to know yourself better.
It’s perfectly fine to explore what your heart wants. It’s completely alright to tune out the rest of the world so you can build a connection with your soul. It’s remarkably uncommon, but it’s fine and it’s alright, so do it. You won’t regret getting to know the person who lives inside yuo.
The most beautiful thing you will ever witness in your life is when you begin to unfold into the person you were meant to be from your very beginning.
It’s not about your favorite color or school subject. We’re talking big stuff.
Knowing yourself is beyond figuring out your favorite color or your favorite subject in school or your favorite music album. We are no longer in high school — thank heavens – where being “yourself” meant mimicking everyone else, acting stupid in the collective and defying rules, and feeling insecure all day long while doing it!
Knowing yourself is the process of understanding you – the human being – on deeper levels than the surface. It is an unpredictable road that you must bewilling to explore. It brings you face-to-face with your deep self-doubts and insecurities. It makes you take a serious look at the way you are living your life and put it to question.
The whole thing can suck for a little while but then it gets better, and like anything else, a little hard work at the start pays dividends in abundance for the rest of your life.
Knowing yourself means respecting your values in life, your beliefs, your personality, your priorities, your moods, your habits, your magnificent body, and your relationships.
Knowing yourself means understanding your strengths and weaknesses, your passions and fears, your desires and dreams. It means being aware of your eccentricities and idiosyncrasies, your likes and dislikes, and your tolerances and limitations.
Knowing yourself means knowing your purpose in life. Or coming really darn close to finding it out!
