I don’t know about you but I know how hard it has been for me to continually be myself. Often I have lost myself along the way. Why is this? I think to try to fit in, to try to validate myself by others standards, what society tells us or our parents tell us or the people around us makes us think we should be to be liked. It is when I have tried to fit in and please others I have lost my energy and zest for life. Trying to be what you think you should be is exhausting and dampens who we really are. There is no joy doing things that don’t light us up from the inside as these things aren’t who we really are.

In the last 3 years I have gone back and trusted myself and decided whatever I must be honest with myself about who I am and what life I want to live. I have made a conscious decision that I will not look for external validation but look within to see what lights me up. For me I am inspired and energised by how I want to make impact in this sometimes crazy world. I want to help people to live their best life. For all people to feel they are fully living their life, nobody elses. To feel they are brave enough to be themselves no matter what that is, to be that wonderful human being that came into the world completely unique and perfectly them. After all there is only ever one exact one of us. How incredible is that! For me the greatest feeling is being part of helping another human being find them self again. To find their zest for life, to feel they are being and doing exactly what they want to do.

I from an early age got groups together and championed everyone. This is who I am at true essence, as a young child I was labelled spirited as an adult rebellious, I wasn’t any of those labels I was just passionate me trying to figure it all out. This is why by the time I was 30 I was helping lead a school as I did what I thought was best for children that had been already given some difficult challenges my methods care helped them believe in themselves and overcome their challenges. The hand they had been dealt already was not an easy one. At this time when I was making a real difference I never felt more alive. At the time I didn’t realise how much this lit me up; hindsight is an amazing thing. I am now more aware of who I am and know I want to continue making a difference. To continue feeling alive. This means continuing being honest with myself.

Have you found that at times you are getting further and further away from who you truly are? Have you lost your zest for life?

Return to yourself and trust your inner knowing. You know your truth. When you show up in the world with who you really are life gets better and better. When you are true to yourself you do feel alive! You feel that life force. You don’t feel like you are just going through the motions. Figuring out who you are and who are not and what you want requires us to stop to stay still, connect and listen. One precious life! There is Only one of you; no one can tell you what makes you feel alive; only you can. People will tell you a different right thing to do that is because it is their right you need to find your right. Go inside trust you. YOU can’t let others control this one life you have. Getting still is free and it is not about improving it is about getting still and listening, returning to who you really are.


When you feel that life force, this is you connecting with your true self.
