“Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~Howard Thurman
We must honor ourselves by taking time to reflect on who we are and what purpose we are here to serve. When we do what is most aligned with our true nature, the uniqueness of who we are, we will always feel good! We will always be more effective and productive, and we will always have the greatest impact on others. It is critical that you take care of who you are for that point exactly. Only when you feel great, living your life joyfully with an overflowing love tank, can you truly help others.
Enjoying this game called life is supposed to be fun, it’s meant to be joyful! Yes, even in the face of things going on around us that we may not enjoy. All of the experiences we create are of the utmost importance to finding our authentic happiness. The things you enjoy may be different from what others define as "quality time." But, what’s really important is this. Do what makes you feel good and gives you joy on a daily basis, even if just for a short period of time. Once you make this a daily habit, your life will immediately be happier and you will feel more fulfilled.
Celebrate who you are everyday! Recognize the special talents and unique gifts that you bring to life. Know your brilliance, it’s there if you look. Start by finding your passions. Notice topics that interest you or subjects that you find yourself frequently thinking about. These are the activities that make your heart sing and give you joy. Own them! When you do, you will feel more at ease with yourself and others, making it easier to stay in a place of comfort and cheer.
As you engage in your own personal talents, you will more naturally feel love for yourself. Your comfort in your own skin is very appealing to others as well. Just be who you are, and others will see your beauty. Others will flock to spend time with you. Be the most authentic "you" that you can be, and your light will shine brightly. You will inspire others around you in the most wonderful way!
The only one who can find your dreams is YOU. Come out of hiding, and apply yourself and your gifts today! Don’t hold back. Share the real you with everyone, and have fun with it! Be the lighthearted child that you really are within. Smile, laugh, and have fun with whatever you are doing. Find your way by allowing yourself to be guided from within, instead of from the outside. Only you know what your way is, what your purpose is. You must ask when your body is relaxed and your mind is calm. Listen for the words that come from inside, and then... take action.
Do you want to wake up in the morning excited, jumping out of bed with a thirst for life that you haven't felt since you were a child? Finding your purpose can be a driving force to achieve this state of daily enthusiasm and gratitude!
