Love Yourself

Hello GlobalGrinders!

It has been quite a while since I've last talked with you guys. I have a subject that's near and dear to my heart that I want to talk to you guys about. Over the last couple years of my life, I've really been learning how to love myself. This is something that I've seen a lot of people struggle with. And that's because i feel we don't give ourselves enough time to be with ourselves. In other words, make sure that you're doing things that you really want to do with your life.

I can't stress the importance of getting to know yourself on a daily basis. Make sure that you are really making yourself happy. What is most important is identifying with what it is that makes you happy. Over the last couple of years of my life I've learned there were a couple of times where I was doing what everyone else wanted me to do, but without even noticing that. Sometimes we get so caught up in doing what makes others happy that we forget the simple things that make us happy. I just wanted to share this because I want to make sure you don't waste your life doing and meeting everyone's needs but your own.

The key to making yourself happy is making sure you're in a career field you want to be in. That's number one. Because at the end of the day, who wants an unhappy doctor working on them if you know what I mean? It's about doing your job for free. Only because you love it that much. Number 2 is making sure you have time to yourself at some point in your day. Sitting down and meditating. You have to slow your day down, our minds think so quickly and so much.

Overall I'm here to say, take care of yourself. Life is so short. I wouldn't want anyone to miss their calling. Laugh a lot, and love even more. Once it's all over, at least you can say you lived your life!
