If you are anything like me you have probably spent years trying to work out who you are and have been peeling off the layers to finally align with that person you were born to be!
Us humans have an interesting way of complicating (okay.....absolutely over-complicating!!) things that should be simple. Trying to find answers that deep down we already know. We spend years trying to live up to all these expectations, trying to justify our existence and our worth. So much doing and not so much being!
"Look at all the effort I've put in" we say. "Look how hard I've worked" , "Look how much I've sacrificed" and yet still we keep on searching. We try new jobs, new locations, new partners, new friends and yet somehow we still don't know who we are. We spend so much time doing and not so much time connecting with that 'inner knowing'.
And the truth is there is a deep wisdom in all of us, that innate knowing that shows us the way and reveals to us all that we are capable of. It creates the space for greater peace & happiness & allows us to enrich all areas of our life.
So what do we have to do to connect with it? For me the greatest connection comes by spending time in nature, talking with the dogs down by the river and when I'm doing yoga. Yet we all have to find our own way, that place where we can truly let go. It might be when your dancing, cooking, doing something artistic, taking photographs, gardening or building something amazing. Often we connect with this part of ourselves when we're doing something creative, something that allows the mind to let go and we find ourselves just getting lost in the joy of it all.
So take the pressure off, make some time to do something that truly makes your heart and soul sing and you might even discover that being who you were born to be is a lot easier than you think!!
