It’s hot outside

By CreativeWings, 11 August, 2016, No Comment

It’s that time of year when it’s just too hot to actually do anything other than stay home and binge watch your favorite shows. However, it is also a great time to learn something new, read something great or see something inspiring.

In the same amount of time that you’d use to watch an episode or two, without leaving your comfy chair, you can devote time to your own growth.

Wouldn’t it be great to go to sleep tonight knowing you gave yourself just a bit of the attention that you give to the lives and pursuits of others? This is the perfect time to take those first steps towards achieving one of the goals on your life list.

Here are 3 great ways to get started:

“The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.”
Leo Buscaglia

As we each live our lives and share more and more on the various social platforms, it feels important – to me at least, to ask, “Is this me?”

Who are we presenting to the world each day? Is it someone that feels true to who you are?

If you are struggling (as many do) to figure out who you are, why not spend a portion of the time that you would normally use responding to what everyone else is posting to do some exploring into your own amazing life.

What’s important to you? What are your dreams, goals, loves?

Who do you want to be? What are your unique gifts?

I know these questions can be overwhelming.

How about this… Today, for 5 minutes, take a break from all of the things that distract you from who you truly are and write, draw, blog, record, create, or just visualize one thing about yourself that makes you, you.

You can do it. It’s just 5 minutes. It’s 5 minutes of being you.
