Finding Yourself

Finding Yourself

There is a saying that goes "Sometimes we must lose ourselves to find ourselves" but this is only the first step towards a long and joyful journey that take us to the million dollar question: Do we really find ourselves or do we create ourselves?

We age, we grow, we experience hardships and happiness, and in that, we both find ourselves and create ourselves.

You can only find your true self by listening to your inner voice and being courageous enough to follow it. Trust me on this one: Do not fear the unknown, you could probably find wonderful things behind it!

3 Things you can start doing to create YOUR TRUE SELF:

  • Noticing what makes you feel happy, calm, and joyous and making those things priorities in your daily life. This is probably the most important action you need to start doing right now.
  • Being honest with yourself about what you really want to do in life - not what will impress others or make them most proud of you. Remember, you are not here for the sake of anyone else, so no need to explain yourself to anyone. Just keep living your truth and being kind.
  • Say Goodbye to old beliefs. You have the right to change your mind, the right to choose based on your own values and desires, the right to walk away from anything that isn't benefiting you anymore.

Sometimes, we get to a point in life where we are eager for a change. Getting to know yourself and living a life of purpose doesn't have to be difficult, it is just a matter of time and determination. 

Mindful Tips for Self-Discovering

  1. Be fully present and mindful of your actions.
  2. Be aware of your surroundings.
  3. Focus completely on what you are doing so you can get to enjoy everything you do.
  4. Be mindful of your thoughts and feelings, if something doesn't feel right simply call it off.
  5. Be patient with yourself because self-discovery is a lifelong journey.
  6. Evaluate your relationships: know the difference between good and bad friends. Good friends are supportive and honest, bad friends are not, so stick to the good and get rid of the bad.
  7. Change up your routine, find new activities to do by doing something you have never done before but had always wanted to.

Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. “Finding Yourself” is actually “Creating Yourself” - An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.
