As humans we long to belong, we pay good money to wear brand name “designer labels”
Yet as individuals we fight to stand out of the crowd.
I’ve been doing a lot of internal reflection about who I am and what I value and the answers to some of those questions has surprised me.
All I know is that through this experience of the past few months has genuinely changed me.
This isn’t easy to deal with, but the end result will be a better rounded person and clarified to a certain extend who I am and what I’m doing.
Part of the catalyst behind this was a long period of uncertainty. I had no idea of the path forward and more importantly what lay ahead.
Now you need surprises in life, some good some bad, so it’s impossible to manage the future (said with a perfectionist hat on) however you do need some guidance.
For a while there I kind of lost perspective, became overwhelmed and the outlook ahead looked bleak.
Part of who I am, is what I do and in the past few months I’ve not been able to do that, so internally I wasn’t too sure “what this is?!”
My message to you is, be yourself, sure there are some conventions you have to follow, but be true to yourself and to others.
It’s amazing what can be discovered when you scratch the surface of the real you 🙂
