When you listen to your heart, do not allow your sobriety to waiver when others judge you as FAR from perfect. What truly matters is that where you are headed brings you CLOSER to being yourself.
We all started our journey as soon as we were born but this journey within yourself is something you undertake when you've paused to understand the meaning of life and what makes you - YOU. We all know, what we are fleeing from but do we really know what we are in search of..??
If you are taking stock of your life and if you don’t yet feel you are exactly where you want to be, maybe it's time for you to invest in travelling inward. It's disheartening that nowadays we have been acclimatized to look for everything on the outside when truth lies in the fact that all our answers actually resides inside us.
More than the mind, it is the heart that will preempt and guide you in this journey of identifying what you are searching for and taking you a step closer to being yourself. But, again, it's not just the mind, alone, it's all our senses unified that make this journey worthwhile..!! Becoming conscious of this is the first step of the journey within. Once you've identified your search, you've to sift through the layers and take radical measure to bring out the real YOU shunning what those around you judge/define about you. If you commit yourself to be focused on this journey, you will observe a distinct change in your persona and heightened powers of intuition. This in turn will allow you to grow stronger within and you will be able to listen to your heart and follow your instincts more easily. You will recognize the path that you need to embark on and this enlightenment will come from within you. Deeper into the journey, you'll realize all that you seek lies within yourself; it's intrinsic. Hard to believe, eh..??!! NO. It's a true fact of our lives. Some realize and admit it, some don't!!
As Ralph Waldo Emerson says, "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
The only real journey of our lives is the journey within. GO FOR IT..!!
