Wait, don’t click away. I know that the title is a bit of a cliché, but hear me out. If you are anything like me or anyone else living on earth at this very moment you have thought about what your purpose is and what you are supposed to do with your life. Especially when you’re still young you have this immense need to find what you are yourself, everyone expects you to have an answer when you’re 18. If you think about it, it’s the most bizarre thing you can put on anybody’s shoulder because no one has the answer at that age, 60 years old barely have that luxury.

Of course, there are people who know what they want to do as a job, what their calling is in the field of work but let me tell you, they don’t have everything in order either. Trust me, I feel blessed in knowing, and having known what I want to do in that aspect of life for as long as I remember, but I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about myself. There is always something you can find out or explore further.

Some people may say that getting to know people around you is one of the hardest things you can do, I’d like to say that getting to know yourself, finding yourself is the hardest thing we do in life. How much do we actually know? There are times when you just want to let yourself go, all your beliefs and all of your dreams but those are the times that you truly know what you want, whether that is spiritually or just otherwise in life.

I think that in this day-in-age we spend so much time in the company of others physically but also online that we forget to just be with ourselves and truly find ourselves. So I challenge you to at least once take some time for yourself in the quiet or outdoors to just get to know yourself and the thoughts that go through your mind and truly evaluate them. I promise you that when you do you will grow more and more as a person each day.
