I received an email this morning from one of our readers, asking where do I receive my strength? And after a lot of thought, I realized this is such a powerful question in our daily lives!
Just think about it for a minute…Where do we find the strength to keep pushing forward and staying motivated? Where do we find the strength to push past all the crap, thrown in our way and still keep going?
For the majority of us, it is a lot of searching, but searching for what, you might ask?
I know for myself, I never really knew what pushed me to keep searching for that strength. I just knew there was more out there in the world. More then I could ever imagine. That’s what kept me moving forward, through the family fights, the depression, the relationships I had, the suicidal thoughts that haunted me… and among so many other struggles I encountered. I knew there was something more. I knew I had a calling, but I just didn’t know what it was.
In the past few weeks, a lot of unanswered questions have started to come to a close. I can see the manifestation of so many new and exciting things coming my way. It took a lot of soul searching, asking questions, and reconnecting with my friends and family. As well as facing a lot of battles that I used to run from.
My dreams and goals are what really helped me to push through the hard times. I knew I wanted to inspire others to live an incredible life full of happiness and fulfillment through mental and physical health, I knew I wanted to be a role model for my son, I knew I wanted to get back to school and get back to horseback riding (yes, I was that crazy horse girl in school and still am ) and I knew I wanted to start eating right and working out better. Because these are the things, that make me feel complete. Though they may sound simple, they make my life complete.
Eventually, I want to travel and be able to provide a better life for my family. But right now, I am getting back to the basics and following my heart, where ever it might take me. I know, I will be all right.
Maybe, you have dreams and goals in your life, maybe you have a family that motivates you or maybe you have this feeling deep inside that keeps telling you there is so much more out there! So take a minute. Sit down and think, what inspires you? What makes you feel joyful and full of life? What dreams do you have?
Write them down. (Pick at least 3)
Now, write down about 3 steps that you could take to help you reach these goals.
Finally, write something on the bottom that inspires you to keep pushing forward, whether it’s a quote or just a short sentence. It doesn’t matter. As long as it motivates you.
All right, after all that! Hang it up somewhere, post it on the fridge or in the bathroom or next to your bed or even make yourself a vision board! Whatever you got to do so that you see it every day.
Maybe, you have to do, to make this even more powerful! Start keeping a journal and write down what you are doing each day to work towards those goals and what your feeling! And if your dreams change, that’s fine!! It means you are becoming more aligned with your calling!
Strength comes from being yourself, 100% you and no one else.
And if you are feeling the hardships of this life, I want you to breathe in everything you are feeling and allow your heart to acknowledge that feeling let it run through your body with your breath and once you have felt it, let it go. And move on towards your next step.
You can and you will be an amazing advocate of your dreams if you believe in yourself.
Just take the leap!
