Life Inventory

These days it's all about showing up the next person. People are rarely doing things out of love, it's more out of being better than the next person. And then 10 years later, after every venture has failed, they begin wondering what their life's purpose is. If we take more time trying to figure out what we love, and not what we can do to get a quick dollar, then life would be much more easier.  But I guess failures are the ways that we learn. Without them, we wouldn't know how far we could go and get back up.

Back to the point of the matter... Who are you?  Do you even know? If you do, then great for you. You have made it to a point in your life that many are waiting to get to. Now that you have gotten there, can you tell the rest of us your secret? I am still trying to figure out what I should be doing next. And maybe this is not for me to figure out. Maybe I am just suppose to go through the motions until I have accomplished everything that is for me. It would definitely be nice if I knew who I was and what my purpose was, so that I can accomplish these things on a better level, but I don't, so I am here.

Finding who you are takes patience.  Everyone likes to get things done overnight and that is just not the case.To find yourself, you have to really do some life inventory. You need to get out a sheet of paper (or a notebook) and start writing. Write down the things that you have done and failed at; write down those things that you have failed, but are willing to try again; write down the things that you have done and would never do again; write down those things that makes you happy; and finally, write down the things that you can do without being asked, without needing to be paid and you feel good when doing them. This right here is who and what you are.

Those things that you have failed at, and willing to try again, is what keeps you going. This is your motivation in life. You will do it until you find what works for you. When doing these things, look for natural motivation, Don't look at what others are doing, because you have no idea about the struggle they are going through to get to where they are. The grass isn't always greener.

Those things that you can do effortlessly, is your gift and you should work on that daily. It doesn't take much to do these things, so go out and do them. Life can be easily wasted on trying to get back. Don't let this be your focus. Your goal in life should be pure joy. Joy lasts a lifetime and this is what we should all strive for. Take some time this week and do some life inventory. Make sure you leave room for change and don't be afraid of what you might see. If nothing else, it should encourage you to do better that you have before.

Until next time, Ciao!

I miss this...

I actually miss blogging. I started while I was working the night shift, at a Chicago hospital, and it was just from boredom. But now I see that I really miss it. This did not just hit me at this moment, but I have been thinking about this for a few months now. Lately, I have been helping out with a fellow entrepreneur, and now friend, and I feel like this is something that I can work into my schedule.  I have so much to talk about and it goes beyond natural hair in Chicago.  I'm so ready to talk to other bloggers and get more confidence in my writing abilities. So I hope that you are ready, because the stuff I have to tell you will knock your socks off. 

I think I will bog on Sundays and just follow up throughout the week.  I may even try to vlog (who said that?). LOL... What ever I do it will be fun.

Have a great week.
