If you read any self help or motivational articles these days, most of them say that you should find yourself. But what does this actually mean? How do you go about finding yourself? Where do you start? And how do you know that you have found your true self
These are the questions that I’ve been asking myself since I decided to write this article. I have read lots of articles, flipped thru tons of magazines & even downloaded a few apps that claim to help you do just that. And in the end, I was still in the same place that I was when I started.
Here’s a quote that’s helped me, maybe it will you. “Get out of your head & get into your heart. Think less, feel more.” ~Osho
Of all the quotes that I have read, this one seemed to help me personally, in beginning my journey. I am just starting out & definately still learning; but here are my thoughts & advice so far.
First off, take a step back & learn about yourself. Try & imagine that you are on the outside looking in..
Some say, pretend it’s your friend & you are giving them advice. What advice would you give them?
But, I don’t agree..
In my opinion that over complicates things. Who’s advice should you give yourself? (when looking for “yourself”) Advice from your own inner being, who knows you the best… or a friends advice, who may or may not have the same beliefs or opinions as you?
Try & imagine that you are on the outside looking in..
Although it is very new to me, I do believe that meditation is helpful. How else can u clear your mind of everything & start to look within yourself?? I also think it’s best to get the hardest part out of the way in the beginning. Meaning- Go ahead & look at your past mistakes- Accept Them & Move On!!
Try new things. Something that you’ve always wanted to do.
Get out of your comfort zone. Anything that isn’t the “same ole thing” you’ve been doing. “If that were working, we wouldn’t be searching.” Become a beginner again; study a new language; read a new book. Anything of interest that you’ve never studied? Learning new things opens you up to a whole new world out there, just waiting for you to enjoy!
Finding your purpose in life doesn’t have to be as hard & scary as everyone say’s. Why should it be? You don’t have to make yourself feel bad all over again, just to feel good in the end. Work thru what’s bothering you & then- CUT IT LOOSE.
Create the person that you are within, by accepting your past & your present. You can’t change it anyway. Just let your inner spirit guide you into your future. And you will be fine.
Laughter & happiness are the best things to strive for. The rest will come naturally if you just give yourself a chance. Enjoy yourself & be thankful for the life you do have. Sometimes we get so caught up in worries that we forget to be thankful for the things we do have.
Lastly, don’t expect it to happen overnight. It took a while for you to get where you are now, so it’s gonna take some time to work thru it. You may get frustrated, but hang in there, it will be worth it in the end.
I am just beginning my journey towards finding myself, so I’ve decided to take notes & keep you up to date as I go. Please remember, I am searching too, I’ll make a few mistakes as I go, but I’ll be glad to pass on anything that helps. Maybe we can help each other along the way. I will be posting updates on my journey & I’d love to hear about your’s too. If you have any questions or wanna leave a comment leave it below or visit my site: www.betterselfsource.com
