What advice would you give your younger self?
Believe in yourself, find your community, stand up for what is right, learn, grow, and explore would just be a few of mine.
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be, and why?
I woke up this morning asking myself this question, and the answer that came to me would be to find a supportive community (or build it yourself) as soon as you possibly can.
You’ve heard the phrase “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with right?” Well I’m here to tell you that that’s 1000% true.
And I wish I had realized that earlier in my life. I wish I had really thought about who are the people that I want to spend my time with, and what are they doing to make their lives and the lives of the people around them awesome?
Because it’s the people around us that teach us the most. It’s the experiences that we have with our friends, our family and our community that create the true knowledge and wisdom in ourselves and our lives.
And it’s also your community that pushes you to grow. It’s so easy to sit in our comfort zone and not take on life’s to not sit in your comfort zone but to go out there and make the most out of this game that we call life. Because life is a gift, and we were given this gift for a purpose.
The purpose can be different for each and every person, and you get to decide what that purpose is. And there can be more than one! But once you find that purpose, life becomes magical. You start to see opportunities to grow, to contribute and to spread love in every area of your life.
To find that purpose, I think it takes a lot of exploring, it takes a lot of having fun. It takes a lot of connecting with other humans to see what resonates the most with you.
I’ve decided one of the purposes of my life is connecting other people and empowering them to live a life full of freedom, impact, joy and fulfillment. A life that they choose to lead rather than a life that they were told to lead.
Have you figured out one of your life’s purposes yet? Have you found your community?
