Do you have a passion, but aren't sure how to start? Do you have days where you feel alone? Days when you think about the past a little too much? Days when you think about the future a little too much? Have people tell you you're too young, or old, to know what you're doing?
Ya me too! I tell this to you as much as myself, "You are not alone!" Thats the real secret isn't it. We are made to feel as though we are the only ones who have these and other thoughts. The only ones who wonder if the place we are at now we are suppose to be. Should we be doing something else, are we not doing enough in general with our lives? Do all the other apartments really look like the blogs and pinterest tell us they look? HAHAHAHAHA, absolutely not!!
If you are feeling this way more days than you aren't, here's the sure fire way to crush it. Talk to other people. Do an act of service expecting nothing in return. The secret to crush the lie that you are alone in your life is to do something for someone else expecting no payback. Theres always an excuse not to, but get involved somewhere. Yes, there will be groups you will try that won't work, but you'll be trying. That's half the battle. No one wants to feel alone, even the other people out there who look intimidating.
These days we spend to much of our time having ourselves in mind. Really what makes the difference is when we stop thinking about ourselves. Imagine a world where we all stopped thinking about ourselves and thought of those around us. How fulfilled we would be, we would spend our time helping others with their careers instead of focusing so much on our own. We would be so much more inclusive, because there would be no other choice. If we think about how we can help others that is how we stop feeling that we are by ourselves. I challenge you to do something small every day this week that helps another person. At the end of the week you will feel more connected to people than last week!
Come back at then end of the week and share what random acts of kindness you focused on this week! We can all learn, together, more about how to support each other!
