Sleeping Giant

Growth mostly happens when we’re alone, in the darkness of our minds, and the depths of our thoughts.

It’s in the quiet moments when no one is around that we are growing stronger and more confident with who we are.

Being alone can be a blessing. It’s something we should strive for in the busyness of life.

The quiet moments open our minds to explore where we’ve been and where we are now.

It’s in those moments that we can believe in our mission and trust in the effort we are putting forth.

Seek out the quiet.

It’ll shine a light in the darkness and sound the alarm on the areas we still need to work on.

That’s the only way we can truly expect to know if we’ve grown or not.

Free From Distraction

The reason why you often hear people say they come up with their best ideas in the shower is that it’s one of the only times a day when we allow ourselves space to think. 

No phone, computer, tv, kids, etc. 

Thinking finally gets a priority even if that is not the intention. 

When we are struggling to find balance and are looking at ways to discover our happiness, finding space for our minds to think and do nothing but wander and explore could be extremely beneficial.

We just need to block out time on the calendar (start with 5-10 min) and do our best to silence the noise, both around us and in our heads. 

Then, just let our minds take us wherever they want to go without any judgment.

That time will become some of the most serene and wondrous moments of our day.

Lonely and Alone

Lonely and Alone. These are two completely different things yet they often get confused with one another.

Lonely can be a state of depression and can come about when we need others to make us feel complete and validate our worth. We can get depressed if we feel we are not being included and often will conjure up unjustified ideas of why or how we are being mistreated by being left out.

Being alone can be serene. It can be a time we use to break away from the noise and look inward. Where we reflect on the present moment and level set. Where we practice self-love and put ourselves top of minds over others.

The bridge getting us from being lonely to loving being alone is paved with a lot of heartaches. There are a lot of self-limiting beliefs and childhood ideals that we often have to acknowledge and overcome. If we are willing to do the work of self-reflection we’ll find we get to a place where we are comfortable being alone and start to seek these moments out more frequently.

They become happy places for us where they used to cause pain.

They become our getaway from a noisy and frantic world.

They become an island we want to visit more often.
