I have been reading self help books from a long time, in fact, you can find at least 12 different authors (and several publications of each) on the topic in my personal library, and they all have the same message: the power is within you.
You can take different paths in order to get to know you and learn how to truly express yourself, but no matter how long the road, if you you don't try you won't ever feel fulfilled.
Sometimes we believe we are in tune with what we are and believe in, yet, we can not find peace, happiness or wherever we are looking for.
I am in that exact place in life right now, after years of thinking how blessed I was to have it all figured out, I have to admit there is a lot I can process on a mental level but I am not able to feel and live.
It takes a lot work and guts to be totally true to yourself, to get rid of layers and layer of (auto) imposed believes, socially approved behaviors and fears.
We are born with no fear, because as babies we understood our connexion with the universe, our unique magnificence... and then we learn that we "have boundaries" and are to fear even the most basic facts of life: change, the unknown and dead.
I am committed now to get in touch with my true self, to tune my heart and my brain so I can feel like a baby in terms of the way I relate to the energy surrounding me.
One of the tools I am using is affirmations, I am having good thoughts, positives words and affirmations everywhere! In my mirror, in my shirts, on post-its , in my glasses... You name it! I read how fearless, determined, healthy and happy I am through the whole day and it changes my mood and makes me happy.
I know there is still work to do before I achieve my goal, but I am enjoying every moment! Growing, learning and feeling proud of my progress, because we all need to take pride on who we are, after all it is the only thing that we have for sure.
Infuse your thoughts with positive energy and you will unleash your true potential.
