Have you ever felt lost? Or wondered what you should be doing? I know that I have! I totally felt lost as my kids got older and didn’t need me as much. I tried a bunch of things, all of which I “thought” were THE thing for me, and maybe they were at the time! Or maybe, I was just waiting to find myself. Then I heard this during a workout the other day and I was like “damn Universe”! You have to create yourself, not don’t wait to find yourself! So much power in just a few words!!
Create Yourself, Don’t Wait to Find Yourself
So, what does this mean, you might be thinking? Well, to me, it means that we need to take action! When we are trying new things in order to “find” the one that makes us happy, we are passively going through our lives. We get an idea, think “oh, that sounds interesting” and then go test it out. This may not be a bad thing, but you need to really look at it see if it is you just making excuses or avoiding doing what you really want because that is just too damn scary! It so much easier to get distracted by the new shiny object than it is to go after what we truly want. I don’t think most people even know they are doing it. At least, I didn’t realize I was.
What I think we need to do instead is truly look inward. What is it we like to do? Write it down, then ask yourself “Why?”. Write that down, then ask why again, and again until you are truly at the root of what it is you desire! Once the Angels are Singing (meaning, you will totally know it once you narrow your focus), then start creating that life for yourself. That when you are truly living!! When you create the life you want and deserve!
It will take getting truly real with yourself and you may need to wade through all kinds of shit to figure it out, but I truly believe that if you don’t, you are just wandering around hoping you find yourself. So are you willing to create yourself, don’t wait to find yourself?
I highly recommend reading You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero if you are wanting to become your best self!
