Are you living your truest life?

What is Truth?

I STRUGGLED for years with being happy with me — with my life — the path I was taking. The truth I was choosing to believe. It wasn’t until my therapist told me that I didn’t need to have permission to be who I wanted to be that life started to make a little more sense.

That hit me…who did I want to be? I had been living my entire life trying to fit myself into a box that I thought other’s were expecting. Doing something to make myself happy never crossed my mind.

I was always chasing the next thing that I thought would impress my parents, friends, strangers. I had never once stopped to think about who CHANDRA would be if I gave her the chance to explore what deep down brings joy, happiness, contentment, and peace.

Finding Your Truth

Here are a few things you can ask yourself when you are trying to think of who you authentically are: (and remember this is what YOU think of you, not someone else’s thoughts or opinions)

  • What would it be like to wake up without dread of the day ahead but with eager enthusiasm?
  • Who do you see by your side?
  • Where are you living?
  • What is your lifestyle?
  • What are your hobbies?
  • Fashion style?
  • Car?
  • Mentor?
  • Helping others?

Go wild! Dream as big as you want! Literally anything you can imagine creating is possible. Think of technology in just the last ten years. You’ve got this thing called life, all you need is a dream and a path the plan!

Take all of those ideas and make a layout of where you imagine yourself in 10 years? Have you thought that far down the road? I hadn’t!

It is hard but it is something that has to be done! Life is like going on a road trip. You put the address into your phone and let the GPS take you the fastest route. You need to decide what your future looks like so you can learn the fastest route!

Where do I see myself?

There has always been a stirring voice in the back of my mind that dreams about traveling the world. Taking pictures of beautiful things. Helping others find happiness because I know all too well how it feels to live a life where you feel like you are barely surviving.

You should be thriving!

Here I am! I am finally ready to put my focus on finding and developing my Authentic Self.

Following my truth!

The truth I get to decide to believe is real. Just like your truth is whatever you decide it is!

In addition to exploring, discovering, and learning I want to help you find your truth as well! What whispers have you been putting off because they are too big, too grand, too unusual? Well get ready to Just Be Your Authentic Self!

Leave me a comment on what you think the next 10 years look like! The future is in your hands! I’m excited to see where it goes.
