I have been doing a lot of work on myself lately. As I have been out of balance for so long, things have started to unravel and I found myself burnt out and feeling out of depth.
It can happen so easily and can happen to anyone. When it does happen we need to take stock of where we are and what we have done.
What I have learnt is looking at those core words that get you up in the morning. Those three words that if you don’t have them you cannot function.
It takes a lot of soul searching and maybe talking to a counsellor or a Coach to help you to determine what those words are.
The key thing I found is the words reflect your core and if you don’t have them or live with those in your life every day then you can find yourself lost and doing things that don’t sit right. It can put you on a path that you don’t want. You can waste months and years doing things that you shouldn’t be doing.
Mine are Individuality, Passion and Freedom. If I don’t have these in my everyday breath, then I find myself going off on the unbeaten track.
I need passion to be creativity, Freedom because I don’t like to be stuck in a box, I like to do different things and feel like I am free in everything I do. I have to have control of my destiny. Individuality, this is me being all me and sharing who I am with you. I thrive on sharing my thoughts and journeys and the moment I stop then I cant function.
Each of these things, if missing means I dont function at my higher purpose. I thrive on being different, I thrive being on adventures. I like to live through the eyes of a child…. Everything is possible and I have to discover things in my own way. Even when told how to do it.
I like to break the mould. Fight the bigger fight. I am an idea’s person and I am happy to share those ideas with like minded people.
What are your core words? What helps you tick? If you don’t have these words you find yourself not functioning.
