It can be so easy to get lost in the every day and forget who we truly are at our core. We become bogged down by the obligations of life and the people around us, and we lose sight of what really matters to us. But it's important to remember that we are not just mothers, daughters, sisters, or employees. We are individuals with our own dreams, desires, and passions.
So take a step back and remind yourself of who you are - what makes you unique and special. Once you know that, start living life according to those values instead of letting others dictate how you should live. You'll find that you're much happier once you do!
This can be especially true for women, who are often socialized to put others first. We become bogged down by the obligations of life and the people around us, and we lose sight of what really matters. You really matter!
So take some time for yourself and figure out who you are. What makes you unique and special? Every one of us is unique. There is no other human walking this earth that is YOU. You are amazing, and you deserve to find out what makes you happy. It's not selfish to put yourself first – it's necessary!
Here are some tips on how to get started:
1) Set aside some time each day, even if it's just 10-15 minutes, to do something that YOU want to do. This is YOUR time, to do whatever YOU want with it.
2) Make a list of things that make you happy. These can be simple things like taking a walk in nature, reading your favorite book, or listening to music.
3) Explore your interests and hobbies. If you're not sure what you're interested in, try new things! You never know what you might discover.
4) Spend time with people who make you happy. Surround yourself with positive, supportive people who will make you feel good about yourself.
5) Take care of yourself – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Eat healthy food, exercise, get enough sleep, and find ways to relax and de-stress.
6) Do something nice for someone else. Helping others will not only make them feel good, but it will also make you feel good about yourself. Sometimes we find ourselves in helping others.
7) Live in the present moment. Don't dwell on past mistakes or worry about the future. Enjoy the moment that you're in.
I hope this helps you on your journey to finding yourself again.
