Hello everyone Welcome to the Introspection Blog, I am so excited to connect and start this introspective journey with you! I have so much passion for people and really want you to be the best you that is truly possible.
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich"
It is imperative that we work on understanding and loving our true selves, in order to love and understand the world around, us right? In order to do this, we have to look deeper at ourselves such as; our patterns of behaviour, our likes, dislikes and being okay with who we are. ensuring that we are doing the things that make us happy, healthy in life.
So are you getting it right? Not the easiest of tasks believe me I have been there and I am still growing and learning my way through life.
It takes a lot to really look into your soul and find what really makes you the person you see in the mirror every day.
For so long I wore a mask of lies, that hid the pain of not truly being the person that I was called to be. This behaviour actually kept me stuck in a cycle of unfulfillment, as I never allowed myself to be still and sit with who I was, how I was feeling and what I needed to do for a change. Inevitably, l was blocking my growth and any changes needed to work towards my destiny. To be honest It was a very painful time and the reality is, that sometimes we can only begin work on ourselves when we are ready to do so.
(However that's another story for another time, but you can catch a small part of my story on podcast truth about my depression! ) It is really funny as I've grown emotionally, mentally and spiritually, since recording this and has achieved so much. If I can do it, so can you!
Do not get me wrong, you do not need to be in a place of despair to learn about yourself- it is a continues journey that requires consistent and frequent introspective moments.
My prayer for you, it that you can reach your own full potential in all areas of your being!
So the answer to my question- ARE YOU GETTING IT RIGHT ? is that there is no one way or one right way, to the process of self-discovery, love peace and happiness. We are all on a journey, at different stages with different experiences.
You have to do what is right and what works for you- we are all unique, authentic with different needs, what assists you in achieving the best version of you, go with that.
For some that may mean have some therapy sessions, others self-help books, religion, seminars or a combination of all.
One thing for sure there comes a time when you really need to dig deeper and discover who we really are and owning YOU!
Look out for my next series of blogs where we will be looking at how true you are to yourself and to yourself, along with practical tips that will assist you more becoming your true authentic self!
Until next time, much love!
Knowing Me-Knowing You
