It is such a beautiful day out. The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping! But, I have been feeling anxious all morning. I keep thinking about what could be wrong and I just can't seem to put my finger on it.
Being self-aware. It means that you are in tune with your body. Your emotions. What is going on. You think about who you are and how people see you and how you see yourself. You know why you act certain ways and you always know how you're feeling and how you can change those things.
I used to think being self-aware was a problem. I hated thinking about why I am the way I am 24/7. But now, I see it as a gift. It may just be my anxiety, but honestly, if I'm gonna curse anxiety for making me think, I'm gonna BLESS it as well. Because it makes me know me. It lets me know when I need to take care of myself or change my patterns and it makes me a lot more compassionate toward others.
To people who are afraid of knowing themselves, don't be. It's a necessity. You need to know yourself in order to have true, authentic things come into your life. You can't choose men, friends, passions, or healthy behaviors if you haven't spent time getting to know your needs and desires. Once you know and take care of yourself and learn self-love and awareness, the right things will come up that mesh with your soul.
If you believe you are enough and know what you need romantically, he will show up. If you spend time knowing what feels good and what doesn't, you'll know what things make you light up. You'll learn your passions.
Being self-aware takes time. And, it's a journey. But, if you never take the time to learn yourself, life won't give you what you need. Hey, first priority (that's YOU), spend some time getting to know yourself, prioritizing YOU, and feelin' out those emotions.
Finally, you'll be able to say YES and NO to what's right. Because you'll know what that means for you.
