When I was sleep walking with my life, I used to say YES to everything. I also used to worry all the time about what other people will say about me. I found myself that I had to explain all of my actions to everyone - to those people who doesn't add value to my being. I didn't know what standards and boundaries are. #setyourstandards
I got easily persuade by other people's opinion because I was not consciously aware that I was a people pleaser. I used to care what they think of me. I had to be nice and kind all the time for people to like me - my old belief says. Until I woke up from sleep walking of life and become consciously aware of my actions. Now, I'm able to see people who push me to my boundaries even when I say no. I don't need to explain why I'm making such decisions because I said so. Before, I used to think of other people - what they will say, will they hate me, what will happen to them and so on. But now I don't care anymore if I'm different, if they see me weird or unpleasant living my life this way. I don't care if no one understands me at all. This is my authentic self, and I'm loving every parts of it. I l am so grateful that I found my purpose.
When we are seeking for a greater good, for nourishment of our mind and soul, it will lead you to discover your true self. You will be able to know what your standards are, your boundaries and it will free you from limiting beliefs.
What does it feels like when you know your power?
I had to experienced first the pain before the awakening. Author Glennon Doyle shared the same experience on her talk with Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. I will not be able to know my higher self without the the journey of getting lost and getting hurt. As humans, we want to bypass these crucial stage. We paint the picture of happiness, life is good all the time on our social media networks. What makes as who we are, are not the things we have.
Now I feel so connected with myself. I am always consciously aware of the things that are good and bad for me. The people that I used to care about were no longer with me. They are now replaced by people who has the same passion and energy, the lovers of life. We no longer come from the place of judgment. We see the world in full, bright spectrum.
