When we get to certain point in life, whether it’s during a life transition or a crossroads, there is a point when we can be unsure of whom we really are. In realizing who you really are, you have to begin by reconnecting to your past self. Think about who you were as a child. What were you strengths, and what did you love? What would your family and friends have said about you when you were young? After thinking about this, then consider your current self. What are your strengths, and skills? What do you think your friends and family would say about you? Throughout life, we become worn down from failed relationships, stress and responsibilities and often forget who we are, what we love and what we are good at. In the midst of my 20's I completely forgot about some of the things I love and was also good at (ex. reading and writing). In recently rediscovering myself, I began to take a look back on my childhood and remember what I was like. In reconnecting to my child self, I am able to remember myself from a time when life was more pure. In doing so, I was able to rediscover some of these qualities about me again and also started thinking more childlike. In thinking more childlike, you can start dreaming again and living life with more pleasure. As a child we tend to live more for pleasure and less for survival as we do in adulthood. So stop and take a moment to think like a child for a little. Reconnect with you, spend some time doing what you love again and also start dreaming more, within doing so you will find more of your true self and lots more happiness.
