Do you believe that you are here to be awesome? Or are you caught up in life’s daily grind and are just going through the motions? It can be easy to get caught up in all that needs to be done and become detached from our true self.

It can be easy to lose sight of what truly matters and what makes our heart sing. Your heart might even be the last thing you connect with because you are so caught up in your mind. If that’s the case, don’t judge yourself for it. The material world and its trappings can be all consuming sometimes.

The good news is that there are many ways you can take a step back at any time and reconnect with the awesome person that you are. Start by making a conscious effort to slow down even if it’s just for a few minutes during your busy day.

Come back to your breath. It allows you to connect to the essence of your true self which is so much more than just the doer and the thinker. Moments of stillness also allow you to create some mental space. Space for your inner voice to come through so that you can tap into your full potential.

You are a truly incredible person and if you’ve lost sight of that it’s time to regain that confidence and knowing. It might take a while to get back on the right path but it’s well worth it. You will rediscover wonder and amazement. You will see beauty where you used to be lost in thought, worry and self doubt.

It’s a process and you must be patient with yourself but all that you need is already within you just waiting to be rediscovered. Start this year by making sure you are connected to your true self as often as possible. Take moments to pause and check-in. If you feel like you were totally disconnected, breathe in deeply and refocus your attention within.

When we cultivate an awareness of our true self, we create a more fulfilling life but we also have more to offer others. Look at this image daily to remind yourself that you are here to be awesome. Stare at it for as long as it takes for you to believe it and when you do, feel the shift it creates within you and around you. Wishing you a wonderful day and let me know if and how this post inspired you.
