Are you Self-Aware?

Are you self-aware? Before you answer, let me remind you what it means to be “SELF-AWARE”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is it important for all of us to have self-awareness? Well, the University of Warwick says it best. “Self-Awareness is important because when we have a better understanding of ourselves, we are able to experience ourselves as unique and separate individuals. We are then empowered to make changes and to build on our areas of strength as well as identify areas where we would like to make improvements.”

Now answer the question…Are you Self-Aware?

If you are one of the few that are lucky enough to be Self-Aware leave a comment below letting me know how you cultivate and practice Self-Awareness. For those of us that are not or are working on becoming “Self-Aware”; let me tell you, it is a journey and requires you to dig deep into who you are.

The hardest part for me on my journey to becoming fully Self-Aware is tapping into my thoughts and views about myself and confronting them, but by the grace of God, I am starting to see myself clearly and really learn who I am. It is truly amazing to learn who you are in a whole new way. So if you are currently on your journey of Self-Awareness or are looking for guidance on how to become Self-Aware, I will be sharing my journey along with tips and exercises that have helped me become more of who I truly am.

It Starts With You

Hi Beautiful!

it’s time for a change, what’s holding you back?

Guess what? I know I know exactly what’s holding you back. It’s not money, it’s not timing, it’s not others holding you back, it’s not a million other excuses that you are probably trying to come up with right now.

What’s holding you back is YOU! Let’s just take a step back and think about it. You will really need to let go, clear your mind, and step out of your comfort zone and really do a Self Evaluation and become “Self Aware”.

Vanessa’s quick Note: When I feel like this or become aware of myself coming up with a million excuses as to why I am unable to do something; I take a step back, pray and ask God for clarity, and meditate.

It’s time for you to get out of your own way and start living life as you are now. Take 5 minutes out of your day and ask yourself these 5 questions, and allow yourself to feel and really evaluate what is going on in your mind and with your emotions as you answer these questions.

  1. Who are you?
  2. What are your values?
  3. Do you care what people think of you?
  4. What drives you or what motivates you?
  5. Do you love yourself?

If you are stuck, feel free to email me at LivingLifeAsIAm@gmail.com and I can help you through.

Now think about where you want to be in life in as much detail as possible. If you need to write it down, go ahead and write it down. Think about it as if it were the life you are living now. Feel it, live it, dream it.

Now that you have done a quick evaluation of who you are, what is holding you back from living your life as you picture it?

Once you have the answers to these questions, you can now start taking the steps necessary to get to the life that you want, all while living your best life as you are right now. It Starts with You!

“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”-Vern McLellan

First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I am so excited for 2015, I can’t help but feel the excitement and new opportunities that 2015 has in store for me. In the past I have not felt this much excitement for the New Year, but I know that something amazing is going to happen this year. Don’t ask me what it is, because I have no idea. I just know! It is that feeling deep in your gut that you just can’t shake no matter what.

I have not had a chance to sit down and go over my goals for 2015 yet (I know, I know, I am so late). All I know as of today is that I am ready to ramp up my blog and get my YouTube channel started. So at some point today I will sit down and write out my long term goals and break them down in to short term goals.

So what am I bringing to 2015? I am bringing a positive attitude, lots of love, happiness, determination, hard work, and self awareness.

Joy in 2015

What are you bringing to 2015 to ensure that you have an AMAZING year?
