Inspire Daily- ed.7

ed7

Emerson often reminds me of things all too important to forget, but this one really hits home.

For the ambitious type… planning for dreams ahead to become possible and constantly learning from our past mistakes in order to grow can entirely consume our lives. If I know one thing about myself it’s that I routinely forget to LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

My talents and my jobs become my sense of identity- which can become dangerous all too quickly. When writers block hits, it’s personal! Suddenly, not only will I not be able to write for a week… anxiety rears its ugly head and my entire future is doomed, as well as my self worth.

I should be focusing on the bigger picture… remembering…

I am more than my dreams and ambitions. More than my accomplishments, my talents and my “successes” or lack there of at times.

We are enough. As we are. Nothing need be added.

Always yours,

~Fioza

  1. Fioza, I (Agatha) have experienced this too. I’ve done some illustration exhibitions in my town, and gained pretty much amount of fame, but then a question punched me right in my face, “Then what? do you feel fulfilled now?” I was feeling sooo hollow, lonely, and anxious, no matter how many compliments I received for my works.

    Since then, I decided to take my life slower (and deeper). I understand that I’m just a human, and every human has their own capability, don’t we?

    I hope you’re doing great in your career! I know you’re going achieve your goals! 🙂
