In an effort to hit the ground running, I thought I would start my blog with a journal entry I wrote a bit ago that felt like ” a click” for me.
( sometimes I start the journal entry with a quote, just to get the mind going. They are sometimes completely unrelated to the entry, like this one, but I have also been thinking about goals a lot lately so I went with it)
” The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No on to lean on or rely on or blame. The gift of life is yours, it’s an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it”
– Dan Zadra
I feel very blessed to have a really good comfort with self-awareness. To know when I am confused, sad, happy. In my life I very seldom find myself answering ” I don’t know” to how I feel.
I do know.
I may not always want to share or say it out loud to make it real. But really, I do know if I’m hurt, feeling loved, excited or calm. External forces usually result in the ” I don’t know ” response;not knowing how to react, not knowing how others will react, not seeing the vision or plan.
But at any given moment, give me a second to become aware of it and I’ll know how to answer.
And for this, I am grateful.
This moment has stuck with me. I felt like I learnt something that day. Think about it . If someone right now were to ask you how you feel, you could answer if you allowed yourself to become aware. Your answer may just be that you feel hungry, but the point is you always know.
But if someone to ask you “what do think about that..?” or “what are you going to do…?” The ” I don’t know” is a highly possible answer.
Its incredible when you think about it.
I think being conscious of how you feel is a great step to really knowing yourself , which is one of my ultimate goals.
After all you are the only person in your thoughts at the end of the day. It’s just you.
