With Better Understanding

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.”
C. JoyBell C.

For me, one of the most important factors in building our self esteem and confidence is our self awareness. But what exactly is it, why is it important and how can you become more self aware

.
Being self aware is knowing what you want in your life, your strengths and weaknesses, what motivates you and makes you happy, what you want to change about yourself or about your life, your achievements so far, how you relate to others, you need to improve as a person, your most important beliefs and values and how you see yourself as a person .

.
Having self awareness is important because if you want to change your life in any way you need to know yourself before you can act. You need to know what you need to do to head in the right direction and you can not do that until you know yourself.

.
Discovering the inner you will enable you to give more of yourself to others, as well as helping to build your self esteem and confidence as you become truer to yourself .

.
Take time to reflect on your life. This enables you to focus on the important things in your life, not just the immediate. Reflection takes many forms. Some keep a journal, some pray, and others take a long walk or jog. Personally, I use my time in the garden. I am able to focus my attention on what is really important, and develop an inner sense of wellbeing.

Find time for self reflection today……gain a better understanding of yourself.

.
“A man must find time for himself. Time is what we spend our lives with. If we are not careful we find others spending it for us. . . . It is necessary now and then for a man to go away by himself and experience loneliness; to sit on a rock in the forest and to ask of himself, ‘Who am I, and where have I been, and where am I going?’ . . . If one is not careful, one allows diversions to take up one’s time—the stuff of life.”
Carl Sandburg
