Mental Freedom (My Journey)
Mental Freedom? I have heard this phrase many times and think to myself "What if I could just forget about all the stresses, "what if's" and "Should I have done that"? But in the moment I convince myself that: stress is a part of life, "what if's" are part of the natural psyche and "I should have done that" is actually a part of finding new ways of learning from our mistakes, failures and successes, right?
I once heard a phrase "I am not what I think I am, I am not what you think I am, I am what I think you think I am" shared by distinguised motivational speaker Jay Shetty, and this literally was an Aha! moment for me.... Simply meaning as he had explained is that we all live in a perception of a perception of ourselves. Our identities are what others think we should be or even what we can achieve and that in it self can become a major barrier in reaching ones potential. Anxiety, stress, and the fears of the unknown really does burn a lot of the light and joy within us out. Through my ongoing journey of self-discovery, breaking down cultural barriers, understanding family dynamics, love, relationships, marriage and all above else WHO AM I?
