a thought-provoking article from Awakened Vibrations that I just had to share.
You know how sometimes you come across messages and you stop dead in your tracks and say to yourself “This is for me!”. Well that’s what happened when I stumbled across this quote on tumblr. And I am sharing it because I am for certain that it’s for someone else out there too.
“If you’re still unfulfilled after receiving what you’ve wanted, you’re not aware of what you need.”
So often what we want may not be aligned with what we need and unknowingly we set ourselves up for disappointment when we chase the wrong things.
We may find ourselves wanting things based on what we see others having, wanting people because we think that they will “make us complete”, we may find ourselves wanting new jobs because of more money but then even after receiving these things we still end up unhappy.
I want all of us to be self aware. Know yourself. Know what it is that you really need. Let go of what you think things should look like. Stop thinking about instagram likes. Stop thinking about your bank account. Start getting in tune with yourself. Your true self. Get in touch with your spirit!
What is it that you are craving? What can help you grow? What is going to make you a better person? Trust me when I say this, the most painful way of learning what you need is by accumulating a whole bunch of things you think you want only to find yourself miserable. So if you can, stop now before you hurt yourself.
This is something I struggled with. I had to ask myself “Am I happy?”, “Is this really for me?” Because I felt unfulfilled and I knew there had to be more. And there is more but I didn’t find it until I turned away from all of those things I wanted and found what I needed inside of myself.
So today, think about what would make you feel whole. You don’t have to settle for what you have right now. You don’t have to end up stuck with more things or people or feelings that you don’t really want. You don’t have to. You deserve to discover yourself and gain the things you really need. You deserve to be happy. You are too great to settle for anything that’s not adding value to your life, to your every day experiences, to your growth. Don’t be afraid to let it all go to chase what’s really meant for you.
Today’s Affirmation: Today I am choosing to feed my soul with what it needs and letting go of my ego filled with wants.
