Finding You, the Real You

Finding You, the Real You

I feel like we live in a world where you’re expected to be a certain way all of the time, and to show worry or fear or sadness is taken as a sign of weakness when it’s really not. Especially in the world of Blogging/YouTube-ing, we only really show you all the highlights of our day, the super interesting stuff and the stuff that makes us happy. We don’t really show you that the first 5 attempts of that breakfast shot resulted in nearly falling over a chair and getting judgmental looks, or that outfit of the day shot nearly ended up with a shot of us being smushed by a bicycle, or even that casual dog walk photo that took us nearly 20 minutes to perfect to get ‘that’ shot.

Today I wanted to talk to you about finding you, I mean finding the real you. The you that has a passion and a voice, and a certain flare when doing something. It might sound like a load of mumbo jumbo hippy style rubbish but I honestly believe when you find the real you inside, the real you on the outside flourishes.


TRIAL & ERROR
You are going to have to try a million and one different activities to be able to find the one your passionate about. Or, if you know what you’re passionate about, it may be a case of reigniting that flame within and relearning how to love it again.



JUDGEMENT
Casting judgement is part of who we are as humans, we have the ability to see a scenario and judge either that person or how that situation looks/will turn out. Once you find your passion you probably will be judged but quitting won’t get you anywhere, look at me for example; the amount of judgmental looks and comments I get because I have a passion and a love for blogging is unreal but I refuse to quit and prove all of those people right.


DETOX
Now I’m not suggesting you do a 28 Day Tea-Tox by any means, they sound nasty but maybe give yourself an hour a week to turn your phone off and just give your passion your all. It’ll be amazing for your eyes to have a rest from a super bright tiny screen and it will give you the freedom and concentration to put everything into that hour.


LOVE WHO YOU ARE
Learn to love your body and yourself. Super cheese ball I know but once you learn to accept your flaws and enhance your perfections, you’ll see your outer self-flourish. When you can be happy in your own company and your own being, you’ll find everything else just falls nicely into place and you’ll be able to handle things a lot better too.


I found the real me, now it’s time to find the real you.
