Remember when you were a child and you would dress up with your siblings and crown yourself the prince or princess. You ruled over your imaginary dynasty and the possibilities were endless. You went to bed exhausted, but excited for the possibilities tomorrow would bring.
Why do we as adults shun this aspect of our personalities and fall into such a rigid code of corporate or status quo behavior. We lose our dynasties and replace them with the stress of fitting into versions of other’s worlds. I think it’s time we put ourselves in charge again.
I put this blog and my Instagram as a priority in my life, and I am so grateful I decided to take back my life. While my dynasty is small, it’s growing more than I ever expected and I am meeting some of the most inspiring people along the way. I finally feel free because I am sharing from my heart and have honest conversations about mental health daily. I put myself in charge again and realized maybe I was receiving so many no’s in life because I wasn’t telling myself yes.
If you’re struggling to find your purpose, reopen some of the doors that you’ve shut. Take yourself out of mainstream society for just a moment and open your heart to what is is you’re lacking. Maybe you always wanted to write a novel, start typing! You want to work in fashion, work at a local boutique on the weekends and learn! Those childhood dreams don’t just vanish, they’re here waiting for you to nurture them again.
If you don’t start taking matters into your own hands, you will never find that fulfillment you’re looking for. Even if you don’t know 100% what your goal is (I definitely don’t), just start and I promise you’ll be amazed at how your creativity flows. It’s almost like you revert back to your true self and finally start living again. They always say you can feel when things are manifesting in your life and I’m starting to believe that.
This time, your dynasty isn’t only in your imagination, it’s manifesting right in front of you. Your younger self will thank you for not giving up on the dreams they spent years planning from the basement of your childhood home. 🙂
