You have all the knowledge you need.

I am a big reader of articles with titles like; ‘How to overcome anxiety.’, ‘Become a better morning person.’, ’10 steps to a healthier lifestyle.’, ‘Introverts VS Extroverts.’, ‘The Introvert-Extravert.’, ‘Are you an Entrepreneur?’, ‘How to be the best you, you can be.’ and the list goes on…

I am always in search of ways to self-improve, and well when I started at my now current job, a colleague shared an article that just smacked me in the face. The truth is, we have all the information we need to improve our own well-being, to better our performance in our jobs and other tasks and even become the super humans we paint yourselves to be in our heads.

I have been on this earth for 30 years; from the day we took our first breath we have been taking in everything; sights, sounds, textures, smells…and as we get older, start reading and experiencing emotion, consequences and the like, we absorb it all. Locked in our minds.

We go to school, we learn to read, write and experience new emotions and a new opinion/view of ourselves and the world and others around us. 5 years spent at daycares and playgroups developing social skills and other basic tools needed before entering 12 years at ‘big’ school, where you then again are sent into a hurricane of emotions with the discovery of popularity statuses, the pressure of performance and the expectations of people you don’t even know.

So for 12 crucial years, more often than not, our nieve minds are warped and twisted into developing so many negativities and psychosomatic problems for ourselves, driving us into a flurry in search of the best form of help to get us out of this darkness and doubt. Social Media has made things that much harder!

Well here I am, 30 years old and man am I having a few words with that dear girl that was crushed during her teen years into a passive aggressive, ‘I am not so important’, give up at the first doubt from anyone. I have the knowledge, I have people who believe in me (even if they are not THE people I wanted believing in me, these people count – they are the important ones!) and I now have the belief in myself that I can do anything!

That’s not to say that I won’t still take a peek at some of the articles mentioned, but to do it more out of a curiosity than take them to heart. What works for one does not always work for another, but we have all the tools we need, we just have to use them and practice a little discipline and self-love.

This is the original article that ‘smacked’ me in the face: Stop Learning, Start Applying

I find myself drawn to writing about these inner thoughts, about self-love, overcoming fears, taking the initiative and following through on all the ‘talk’ occasionally throwing in some baking and highlights of course…after all I am not ALL serious. So if you do like reading these deeper ‘entries’ on my blog, I would love to know.

Thank you for showing interest in my rather messy, not quite found my ‘thing’ yet, blog.

  1. I love the idea that we carry all of the tools needed to manifest our own destiny. I know we can heal our mind, body, and spirit…it just takes patience and time!

    1. We all know it, don’t we. Hehe!

      And you are cooking up a storm! Doing exactly what you want to be doing and being just wonderfully happy for it! Very excited about that broth by the way!

      1. Thanks Rose! I really am enjoying it. So much fun, a bit stressful sometimes, but so worth it because it’s what I love! And in those darker moments, it’s so awesome to be able to divert all my attention to something so rewarding and fulfilling. Hope you like the soup 🙂 Keep up the posts. It’s so therapeutic!

  2. We feel so much pressure to do more than we really need to, or more than we can handle, and are constantly trying to fill voids that we think need to be filled, when all we really need to do is find peace within ourselves, be kind, be giving, focus on the important things like family, friends and our passions. Then we won’t sweat the small stuff so much. And loving ourselves as we are will just come naturally.
