I saw a Ted Talk recently where the speaker urged us to live from the inside out - not the outside in. This really resonated with me, and inspired me to re-examine my priorities.
We spend so much time on the outside: work, school, relationships, meeting the expectations of other people. We inevitably end up neglecting the inside: our dreams, our feelings, our values, our goals. Are our lives on the outside in sync with what's inside? Are we living according to our personal, inner voice or are we letting outside expectations construct our lives for us?
Sometimes it's hard to hear that inner voice. Making sure we nurture it is one of the many advantages of self-care and self-awareness. Take the time to get to know yourself today!
