What’s your WHY? Why do you wake up and get out of bed in the morning? Do you do so because you feel like you have to, like you should? Or do you wake up with a sense of purpose, a drive, a knowing that you are here to do great things? For me, it varies. On most days, I feel a deep passion for my life. An inner feeling that tells me I can make this life count and make a difference in people’s life.
But like anyone, I do have my off days when I question my direction. When I wonder if I really do know what the heck I’m doing. I try not to judge myself when I feel this way. We can’t be constantly 100% motivated and confident and that is totally okay. I believe that life evolves in cycles and there are ups and downs. Moments to forge ahead and moments to slow down. One isn’t better than the other and in fact we need both in order to have balance.
What I do think is important is to always come back to our WHY. What we truly believe in and what makes our heart sing. For me, it’s making a difference. Helping to bring more (inner) peace, love, kindness, compassion and inspiration into the world. It might seem like a tall order but I think we often underestimate ourselves and what we are capable of. We are amazing beings and we are here to make a difference in our own unique way.
What is your why? Let the answer come from your heart rather than your head. And if it doesn’t come right away, don’t force it or worry. Be still and just listen… If you are clear on your why, let us know in the comments below. Your answer could help guide someone who’s trying to figure theirs out. We are all in this together and showing our true self will help connect us and let love grow. xoxo
