And to break free from bad habits, discouraging mind sets and negative thinking. It’s so far been a challenging journey filled with self-doubt, fear, self hate and many tears. But then again, change is never easy to embrace completely without any resistance.
However, it gets easier to embrace it all when it comes from within. And with self awareness, determination and hard work it’s possible to reach whatever that’s been locked inside; aspirations, dreams, desires and hope. You then manage to see past the bad stuff.
This fall I’m taking a leap of faith. I may fail but at least I’m not afraid the aspect of failure. I’m willing to give it a try and see where it will take me.
This fall I will be juggling motherhood, the role of wife, working nights and on top of it all I’m becoming (yet again, after 3-4 years) a full time student, studying English and Literature.
I’ve come a long way from where it all began, I realize that now and I embrace the changes. I practice self awareness more than before as it has made me more open to the world around me, myself and my capabilities.
Through self awareness I learn from my past, live in gratitude in the present and believe great things for the future. I’m no longer afraid to acknowledge who I am and what I want to be.
Self-awareness is good…
until you’re forced to connect with the unpleasant side of various emotions and thoughts. For most of us feel something but most rarely connect with what lies beneath or behind their emotions. I can relate. I used to hide my feelings until it slowly began to eat me alive.
I guess, my point is that through self awareness we learn, evolve and discover our potentials and endless possibilities.
I hope you are all enjoying the summer. I’ve just arrived from a summer vacation with the family. I’m trying to balance and hold on to old routines when it comes to writing, blogging, social media, workout sessions etc. I can reveal that I’m failing miserably. So, bare with me if I miss a day (or two). I promise I’ll make up for it when things settle down.
I now leave you with wise words of wiseman Lao Tzu which says it all, don’t you agree?
Watch your thoughts, they become words
Watch your words, they become your actions
Watch your actions, they become your habits
Watch your habits, they become your character
Watch your character, they become your destiny
