Have you ever noticed that when you go through something really difficult, you come out on the other side, stronger, more patient, or with some kind of new wisdom?
That’s how we learn our greatest lessons in life, through experiences. Often we want to go through life with sunshine, and rainbows, and a unicorn or two, but what we’re doing when we say that, is that we don’t want to grow.
In order to grow, we have to go through uncomfortable times, but in the end, we are always grateful that we did.
Have you ever heard someone say “know your why”. What does that mean?
In essence it means, know the reason you are doing something. Let’s take it a level deeper than that though. Is the reason you are doing something genuinely to make yourself happy, or is it something you are doing because you are “supposed” to.
So often, we get trapped into mindlessly chasing things, that we don’t actually even want! Our society has built in this formula for what success and happiness looks like, but if you never check in with what YOU actually want, you could reach your goals and find out that you still feel unfulfilled.
