5 Self-discovery Take-Aways
Self-discovery is one of those journeys that you don’t realize you’re actually on until you are moving through it. I found myself on this journey after facing a tough breakup. This heartbreak I was struggling through took over my thoughts and held my mind captive from unlocking my inner peace. I constantly found myself stuck in a place that was keeping me from my fullest potential. Through this moment of weakness, the truth finally dawned on me. The realization that I was in control of how I want to face this challenge. That’s when I made the choice to start picking myself up piece-by-piece, and build myself up into a stronger, kinder, women. As I continue on my self-discovery adventure today, I leave you with five takeaways that will challenge you to go out of your comfort zone to build a better you. If I can make the choice to find peace within myself, so can you.
- Befriend your challenges
Self-discovery begins when you make the choice to turn a challenge into a friendly teaching. Having this change in mindset allows for personal growth in your journey. I’m a firm believer that what’s meant for you won’t pass you by. This reminder has allowed me to move forward from all of my challenges with grace.
- Enjoy your own company
Love yourself. This is the best gift you will ever give yourself. Through this love, take the time to discover your being by sitting in solitude, praying, journaling, running, reading and doing what makes your soul happy. The time you spend on yourself is always well spent.
- Your go-to
Surround yourself with people that love you for you. These are the hearts that believe in your potential. Find these family and friends that will help you see yourself for who you really are instead of who you think you are. Once you do, keep them and never take them for granted.
- Be fearless
Self-doubt is only a suggestion. You either take it or leave it. Choose to leave it to find what sets your heart on fire. Once you do, use this passion to break through your fears. Trust in yourself as you begin building your fearless future.
Remind yourself that your self-discovery story can’t be written overnight. Take it one day at a time and simply enjoy the journey.
