Somewhere, someone out there can relate to your story. Whether it's about facing your fears, navigating through your 20s, how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life, how to not lose yourself in the process of everything, etc.
Someone needs to hear it.
Maybe they need some words of encouragement that day or to know that someone else has been in their shoes and things turned out okay (better than okay) for them.
Why do we insist on doing things alone?
Wouldn't it be much better if we worked together and lifted each other up? Wouldn't it be better if we knew we weren't alone?
This community is here for you. Always.
We all have choices in life. The choice to stay the same, the choice to change, the choice to think differently, the choice to get out of our comfort zone, etc.
Change is scary, especially if you've never really pushed yourself that far out of your comfort zone before.
There comes a time in all our lives when we decide to change or to stay the same, and it's not just one time. But it happens over and over again. Be willing to get really, really, really, really uncomfortable. Over and over again. That's how change happens. (Advice from Jen Sincero's You Are A Badass At Making Money book.)
Choose to empower yourself to be better, do better, and show up every day. You are more capable and stronger than you know.
There are a couple of things that happen when we share our stories:
1. they become real - they're out in the world,
2. you create space for others - to share their own stories and truth,
3. we break down the barriers and walls - one of the best ways to build trust is by being vulnerable and authentic (neither of which are easy, but both neccessary), and
4. you take control of your own life, which ties back to self-empowerment, listening to your intuition, and building community.
Don't be afraid to share your story. Not everyone will understand it, but that one person will.
Learning to listen to and trusting yourself is one of the best things you could ever do for yourself, because at the end of the day, no one knows you better than you do.
There are always going to be people who say you can't do this or can't do that. Maybe that person is you - maybe imposter syndrome is hitting you hard right now.
Ask yourself why that is. Listen to and feel what comes up. Sit with your feelings and thoughts.
Do what feels right to you.
Deep down, we all have an idea of what we want. But sometimes, we consume too much outside information and noise.
But ask yourself: What do I want? What feels good to me?
