‘Don’t ask yourself what the world needs – ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.’
– Howard Thurman
On weekends we rest our souls, breathe in the crisp air while taking long walks, wear fuzzy socks and read forgotten books. We let ourselves come alive. We let ourselves unwind and recharge. Welcoming the new week with enthusiasm.
The importance of taking time out; Figuring out what makes you thrive, what makes you come alive. We need these days – days dedicated to ourselves, our wishes, and needs. It’s not selfish, it’s essential for a fulfilling life, for fulfilling relationships.
Important questions to ask oneself:
- What makes me come alive?
- When am I completely relaxed, completely content?
- When I was a child, what did I do just because I loved it?
When your cup is full, in other words, when you’re happy & content with what you’re doing, and when you allow yourself to do the things you enjoy doing – you’re more open to give to the people around you, and to do your best at work/in school; You generally do much better in all parts of your life. Don’t fail to look after yourself, your desires. Don’t forget to find happiness and accepting who you are, and where you are at this very moment. Because, it’s exactly where you need to be.
May your week be filled with success!
