“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland
Taking time for reflection can help provide direction in your life. Are your actions lining up with your ultimate goals? Are you living up to your values? What is most important to you?
Knowing the answer to these questions can lead to a deep self-confidence and self-respect.
Many times people don’t take the time to answer some of the bigger questions in life. When you don’t know who you are or what you want, you can get pulled in a multitude of directions that don’t work for you. Family, friends, significant others, cannot do this work for you. For a variety of reasons that have to do with them and not with you, they may want something for you that you do not want for yourself. When you take the time to reflect on who you are, you can see your actions, beliefs, and goals working in harmony.
Take the time to ask the bigger questions, even when you aren’t sure the answers yet. Sometimes people benefit from professional help on their journey to self-discovery. If that’s you, reach out and ask for help.
Pay attention to your life, what feels right for you, your values, your innermost self.
Your heart, mind and soul will thank you for it!
