It is so easy to get caught up in what the crowd is doing, and what we perceive as cool. Be it our friends, our families, and sometime even complete strangers constantly projecting onto us who they think we are or who they think we should be. With so much continuously coming at us it is easy to get caught up in what is not real. For some there is the struggle to live up to the expectations of others. So much so that it can be easy to lose touch with who you are. Then one day you wake up feeling lost and unhappy with the life that you’re living. And, if you listen closely to your words you can hear that the things you hold important are really the values of someone else.
Finding yourself is an interesting journey. It’s a journey that although there will be guides along the way you can only truly make the journey alone. It takes getting out of your comfort zone to explore things that interest you, and on occasion exploring the frightening and unknown. Once you are on the journey to truly being yourself it’s about claiming yourself no matter what, and not settling for less than what you desire or deserve. It’s about being yourself even if you are going against what is popular, and knowing that it’s okay to be different from the crowd. Finding yourself means hanging onto to your desires and views even when others try to make you question and doubt your beliefs.
Growth can sometimes be challenging, and on occasion there are friends and family who are not accepting of who you are and your choices. There may come a time when you have to distance yourself, and in some cases let go of people because they no longer fit who you are and where your life maybe going, and that is ok.
When you know who you are living a life that is happy, and fulfilled comes almost effortlessly, and you attract more of what makes you happy as what doesn’t fit simply seems to fade away. Finding yourselves can be hard, but living a life that doesn’t fit you is harder.
Are you claiming yourself ?
Love and blessings in divine order,
