Spending time alone has supported me in becoming the best version of me!
Have you tried it?
I use an exclamation point because I am genuinely happy about who I am today. I am joyous, loving, supportive, full of ideas, vulnerable to tears and open to the limitless ways that life continues to bring me an abundance of luxuries. When I think back to the days that being alone was uncomfortable, I am grateful to have endured the experience and learn life’s lessons, however, this grass is much greener.
the longer you stay with yourself, the better you become.
I just spent 6 days phenomenal days in Atlanta, GA. I bought my ticket on the whim because of intuition, then convinced Disney to come with me and it was completely worth it! I was enthralled in numerous authentically vulnerable conversations with individuals that are seeking their purpose and want to create change in the world but don’t know where to start. It was undeniable that I was in Atlanta for a reason; a reason that led to enlightening and empowering my peers and aspiring leaders to keep going. Having the ‘Ignite Your Purpose‘ worksheet handy was also a huge help!
Everyone that I spoke to and I, have a common denominator – we spend time alone. However dark or lonely it may feel or seem in the beginning, the longer you stay with yourself, the better you become. We are constantly searching for ways to become better, minimizing the noise of other peoples demands and spending time with our raw feelings, needs, and goals for life. Inward. It’s a place I wish for everyone to go, followed by outward communication that stems from a healthy place.
I have tried numerous self-help books and I have attended some transformational programs that have given me great direction – however, the greatest tool in my arsenal is my willingness to make time for self. With the right tools, you can accomplish anything, including erasing the negative beliefs that don’t serve you and planting new positive seeds that support who you want to be.
Below is a short list of the everyday things I do to create and maintain my relationship with self. I have also included some tools to give you some direction on your journey!
