One day we're a #kid and #chasing only things that bring us #joy. We don't care who's watching, who's #judging, or what's "#cool". Slowly over time that #changes and the #opinions of others mean more than anything screaming inside of us; that's a horrible #tragedy..
I wrote a book called #UNlearn because I realized that the kid-version of us had it right the whole time, and we just layered a bunch of #bullshit on top of them, #suffocating them, so we could become what? A responsible #adult, #plugged into a world that will #replace us the moment we outlive our usefulness.
We #seek the #approval of others because it feels good, but there are things that feel #better, like a sense of #purpose. I don't think two people reading this have the exact same purpose, and this life is a #journey that slowly reveals it as we have new #experiences. What are the things that make your eyes bright when you talk about them? #Explore that #deeper.
What makes you #excited to jump out of bed?
If the answer is nothing, then change that answer to "I haven't figured it out yet, but I'll keep trying new things until my heart lets me know".
What's your #territory?
What's that thing you would still be excited to do, even if you were the last person on earth, and you would never have an #audience again?
That thing is your purpose.
I don't know if you choose it, or if it's coded in your genes, it really doesn't matter if you're not digging to #discover.
For those that have discovered some of this, please share #yourstory in the comments.
