We all want to grow and become something ….. it seems to be a part of being human. Yet, what is that all about?
Some of us want to be successful in the eyes of others.
Others keep looking for the perfect partner, house, career, experience etc.
Some of us have a need to assert who we are and let go of the constraints of the past.
Others are drawn to acknowledge and appreciate all that has been, and the people who have supported them to where they are today.
Most of us want to be happy, but are bemused and confused at how elusive happiness can be.
I don’t have the answers, but what I do know is this. When we shift from looking for happiness outside of ourselves and start to question who we are, and what we have taken for granted, we are actually opening up a part of ourselves that has been hidden.
This part within us is yearning to be noticed. To be heard.
It may not be ready to be heard by our parents, siblings, partners or colleagues, but we must listen to it.
Honor and love this part of you.
This is who you truly are.
Let it flourish and grow.
