Finding Purpose—You Are Awesome!

adriennemishlerIt’s a new year, and I am excited about bringing more journal prompts and forms of expression to you. This week was the first of my monthly journaling workshops. So many came out to learn about journaling and others are hooked by the written word and the accepting and encouraging community we have created.

One of the first prompts we wrote from was the quote from Adriene Mishler, an actress, yoga teacher, and entrepreneur. Sarah, a fellow writer and journaling extraordinaire, introduced her to me with another quote from Mishler:

“You don’t need fixing, you don’t need to waste energy searching for tools to help you get what you don’t have. You have everything you need.”

This is so true. In a world tainted by anger and fear, we often forget we have the power within ourselves to create positive change and to make choices that fuel us. It’s important to look inside ourselves and know what makes us so awesome. For when life gets tough, we can dip into those awesomeness reserves and know we have what it takes to live a life that fulfill us and make us better people.

So the awesome in me bows to the awesome in you and asks:

What makes you awesome?

Don’t be shy. Let it out. Share what makes you special. Stand in your awesomeness and don’t be afraid to let the world know it.
