How long has it been since you shut out the rest of the world, tried to silence that inner chatter that always goes on inside your mind and simply enjoyed some quiet time with your soul?
As a mom, a student, a partner and an entrepreneur, I suddenly realized that it has been a while. As a matter of fact, I could hardly remember when I took that time for myself and just allowed myself to BE. Not memorizing facts for my studies, not being on constant alert for my child, and not watching noisy movies with her father. There always seems to be something going on, doesn’t there?
But that doesn’t make it less important to stop the madness once in a while. It makes it even more crucial that you do. Because if you don’t take that time for yourself, when will you get to know who you are? Really? You might know yourself well enough as a parent or as a friend or whichever hat you put on during the day – but what about you, when that curtain falls? Who are you without your hats? Do you even know?
This is important on so many levels. It’s vital for your mental health, that’s one thing. You’ll also perform so much better in every role you might have in society if you have that peace of mind, and you’ll affect others differently. It’s like a pebble in the water.
But I truly believe we are here for a reason, too. If you are reading this, it might be reasonable to assume that you are interested in the natural way of life. You may hear that calling to go back to nature, as so many others are right now. And you know what? It might be that you are here on this planet, in this time, to actually play a part in that shift we are experiencing now. But your mission, your calling, may have been so drowned out by everyday life that you hardly even recognize it as anything else but a constant nagging on your soul telling you that there is something you have forgotten, something you should be doing with your life – but you can’t remember what it is.
I’ve had that feeling more times than I can count, so I’m totally relating if you are one of the people who’s going through this right now.
Take some time for yourself. Rediscover who you truly are, and what you want out of life. There is simply no way of getting your heart’s desire if you can’t connect with it, and recognize it for what it is.
As I’m writing this, I’m sitting on a bench by the water. It’s dark, quiet and so lovely up here – pure therapy. This is where I go to reconnect. This is where I get to speak with my soul about its purpose, about its desires and about life in general.
I highly recommend that practise!
