We are getting close to the end of this series. It’s been fun and it certainly kept me plugged into my blog through the holiday. If you’ve missed this series and are curious to know what I’m talking about, you can start here to get a better idea about the whole Penguin Pointer thought process: Penguin Pointers Series Kickoff
The very first thing we need to do when trying to change our lives is to figure out what’s important to us. We need to sort of take stock in our passions and desires and find what stands out as our purpose or even our joy. After that…it’s vital that we find our voice.
Easier said than done for some of us. It takes a certain type of confidence not all of us have. But once we find our footing, hopefully we can find our voice.
We have to let go of our insecurities and possibly even find a way to be o.k with not knowing it all or with being perfect. Then we can speak up and enjoy the things that matter to us.
On a personal level, this blog is a perfect example. As most of you know, I had a blog for almost a year that focused primarily on kindness. When I decided that I wanted to focus more on self help/motivation in the form of living the best life possible I second guessed my voice in this area. I am NOT currently living the best life possible so how in the world could I expect my voice to be taken seriously?
Well, I was honest…with myself and with all of you.
This isn’t a blog written by someone who claims to have their shit together. This is a blog written by someone who is working on getting their shit together. The topics I write about are to encourage personal growth…for YOU and for ME.
I found my voice without needing to be the all encompassing authority on personal growth. I am learning. I am growing and I am using that voice to do so.
What are you currently using your voice for? Let me know in the comments. ❤
Happy Hump Day! (How can a short week feel so long?)
