Kickstart Your Self-Discovery with These 5 Questions

November 14 2017  •  Well-Being, Healing


The moment you start to believe in the validity of “categories”, you’ll eventually start to feel like you have to fit into one, which is total b.s. The truth? We’re ALL on our own complex journeys of self-discovery and it’s time for you to stop limiting yourself to fitting-in and start getting curious about all of who you are.

As you grow, adapt, shift and change throughout the journey of life, you take along with you bits and pieces of what works and discard what doesn't. You experiment with trying new diets, changing environments, taking on new careers, and hanging out with new people.

I like to call it “collecting data”- a term I heard last year while listening to Jess Lively’s podcast, “The Lively Show”. Anytime someone criticized me for changing my mind, I told them I was just collecting data. Like that one time I decided to go to Esthetician School after college or when I signed up for Transcendental Meditation and dragged my hubs to a Welcome Seminar. Yup - that happened.

I am NOT an indecisive person but I do love to explore new ideas and try new things in order to gain experience and knowledge around what serves me, and then I can simply discard what I don’t care for!

Listen, I have made a lot of mistakes...have learned a lot of tough lessons BUT I have also grown into someone who is more-than-okay with not always having the answers and figuring them out along the way.

Self-discovery requires a whole lotta trial and error. The goal is to discover your limitations and find what's important to you. Get clear about what you truly want in life.

Here are 5 Self-Discovery Questions to make you go a little deeper :

1. What matters most to you?

2. What makes you feel most like yourself?

3. What are your most important values? Are you living in ways that are not aligned with your values?

4. What drains your energy and what can you do to remove it from your life?

5. Are you holding onto something that would be better to let go of?

Share your answer to one of these questions in the comments below so that I can cheer you on!

#RealTalk - It’s easy to convince yourself that you need to be locked into one passion, one friend group, one hobby, one ritual, or even one career, especially when it seems like everyone around you has their routines down pat. But here’s the truth: a life without curiosity is a life without discovery.

And I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather spend my days discovering - myself, my loved ones, the world around me -  than settle for monotony, always wondering, “what if?”.

Want to keep digging and discovering? I’ve got you....

When was the last time you found yourself ‘oohing and ahhing’ over someone’s dreamy morning ritual stories on Instagram?! With all of the steamy coffee pouring, candles burning, and warm sunlight flooding in, how can you *not* feel mesmerized when your reality might look more like a hot mess? No worries - you’re not alone in the struggle.
Yes, it’s true that a morning ritual can be a really beautiful, empowering aspect of your day-to-day. But more often than not, we spend our energies pursuing “dreamy” rather than what simply feels right to us.
The secret to finding freedom within morning rituals isn’t to try and make your ritual the prettiest, most Instagrammable series of events you can dream up. The secret is to give yourself permission to just be true-to-you - imperfections, improvisations and all.
And if your rituals ebb and flow with your day-to-day needs and desires, taking on new forms or different amounts of time, OWN IT. The goal is to find freedom within your morning rituals - not to create rituals that make you feel boxed in, trying to obtain an unfair idea of artificial perfection.😘
Preach🙌🏽🙌🏻🙌🏿🙌🏽 Self-care has taken on a whole new definition this week.
How often do you say "I wish I had more time for myself!" or "I don't have time for that" or "I'm SO busy".
We love to throw that busy word around.
And it's probably true that your plate is full but when it comes to designing your life you hold the power to decide what and who you want to spend your energy on. So before you make the assertion that you don't have time to workout or finish reading that book that's been collecting dust , you’ve got to understand what you’re trading off when you tell yourself “I Don’t Have Time”.
If you say you don't have time to eat healthy, it's an issue of priorities not time. So ask yourself this important question....
How is my time REALLY being spent and what are my priorities?👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼
It’s Monday!💃🏻 #getitgirl
