What drives you to be the best version of yourself and how do you see yourself getting there? Do you worry about outsider’s opinions and judgment or doubt your own capabilities?
If you do tend to gravitate toward worrying and doubting yourself, then take it from someone who has and at times continues to care a little too much sometimes (curse of the INFJ in me) and just focus on your intentions. If you have decided to delve into something that brought you joy in some type of way, then does it really matter what anyone else may think or say? Gonna go with a hard NO on this one guys! Most of us are on different paths and won’t always understand another person’s for lack of a better word “journey” …and we really don’t need to; it’s not something that needs to be understood. I’ve opened myself up to this outlet for my thoughts in hopes that it may help someone else who could be experiencing something similar, and this is what has driven me. I have an inherent passion for helping people and as much as I tend to ramble I also am a big believer in unfiltered points of view. I prefer to discuss topics on this blog authentically without second guessing myself but I can also respect that this isn’t everyone’s preference. Without trying to sound too repetitive, put your energy into creating your own path instead of judging another’s.
Something I’ve had to learn is not to wait for praise in order to feel like you’ve accomplished something. I have been so lucky to always have a support system but I know it’s not always the case for everyone. As long as you feel that you’re doing something that matters to you then pat yourself on the back and keep moving forward. It is great to have encouragement, but it can’t always be a requirement in your personal growth. Maybe this is why some people love inspirational quotes so much, and share them on social media. Words can resonate with you and mean something when you aren’t used to hearing them yourself. If you can use relatable positive quotes to your benefit rather than those with negative passive aggressive connotations then I say press on! As long as it’s for the right reasons and if it‘s purpose is to positively enrich your life and others.
But I digress!
Sometimes we all need a little push, if you don’t have someone in your life to help you out then I hope you can find the courage within yourself to go after what you want in life and make it happen. A lot of our goals are so attainable, just takes the decision to want it enough to try.
….and because it’s Monday and Frankie the Frenchie agrees that Mondays are hard, here’s some cuteness to get you through the rest of your day! ☺
